Stuart turner engine dating

Their website informed me that I was about to attempt to clean up a Stuart Turner S50 model mill engine. After everything was cleaned up, the boiler housing was resprayed with heat proof paint, and the engine housing sprayed green.The original asbestos boiler insulation has now been replaced with a modern ceramic equivalent.

On their return he machined and assembled them and soon showed the finished model at a local exhibition.

This steam engine was a childhood toy of my next door neighbour's Dad, who recently rediscovered it hibernating in a shed on the Isle of Wight.

It belonged to his father before him, but there is some uncertainty as to exactly who machined the original castings. Amazingly, the company that made the engine are still going.

The name Stuart Turner is eponymous with small quality models.

Sidney Marmaduke Stuart Turner was an English engineer born in Shepherds Bush, London in 1869.
