Part one by Julius de Waal

Julius’ revisits the classic Model Engineer Beam Engine in metric, for fabricated construction; castings are available for the imperial version. The ME beam engine has been a popular model for more than a hundred years, first described by George Gentry in 1914.

It was revisited by Exactus in 1959 and that is the version usually built today. The engine is of the centre column type and resembles that of the type of engine made by William Fairburn around 1840 - 1850.
