Stuart Twin Victoria
An impressively-sized derivative of the highly popular
Stuart Victoria mill engine, the twin Victoria is a rare bird – this is the
only one that’s ever come in. The design is reminiscent of the large twin
cylinder engines powering the Lancashire mills in the nineteenth century.
This is an older model, well-made and mounted on a wooden box bed with aluminium base plate. The twin flywheel is grooved to simulate the original rope-drive set-up of the prototype engines, the cylinders are fitted with draincocks beneath, operated by levers at the end of the bed. The engine runs nicely on air, self-starting with its 90 degree cranks.
Base plate 21 1/2 x 14 inches
Flywheel 7 inch diameter
Bore 1 inch
Stroke 2 inches
