Build the Anderson Single

Roy Anderson was one of the last surviving designers who began his machine design career designing steam engines.  In his retirement he designed this lightweight, 15-inch-tall, 3 hp piston valve single cylinder marine vertical engine.  Kit includes 25 castings and six d-size fully dimensioned drawings.  Bedplate is SAE 660 bearing bronze.  Cylinder diameter, 2.5; stroke 2.5 inches.  Builder sources fasteners and barstock locally.  This kit is ideal for a first project.

Anderson's articles about this engine can be read in STEAMBOATS & Modern Steam Launches (available from this website).  This was the engine for which Bill Durham designed his 18-foot waterline length ROSE hull.  Also, it is an ideal auxiliary in the "engineroom" with the Elliott Bay triple; both are turned-column, piston valve engines.  Price $1,450.00  Drawings $100.00
