Box M, Wilmington, Illinois

I received notice with my last issue (May-June, 1956) that it
was time to fire a little heavy again as my steam pressure was
dropping down too low. So 1 am enclosing a couple of
‘Clinkers’ to show you that I have cleaned my fire and am
ready for another run.

I noticed a picture in the Model Builders Section of the
May-June issue of a model double cylinder stationary engine. Here
is my answer to the question about it.

I do not know the builder of this particular engine but it is
built of a kit of parts (or maybe by Mr. Arnold himself) furnished
and on the market by Mr. Chas. V. Arnold, ‘Tiny Power’, of
Corvallis, Oregon, and I think that it is ‘Tiny
Power’s’ No. 110. Following are some specifications of the
one that I got to give an examination of and see running: Crank
shaft ?’; Bore of cylinder 1?; Stroke 2?’; Diameter of fly
wheel 8′; Width of base 8′; Length of base 16′; Height
8?’; Steam pipe ?’ I. P.; Exhaust ?’ I. P.; and I was
told that it weighed 42 pounds.

Mr. Arnold has a 2′ scale of the Case 65 which I am thinking
about tackling as soon as I get my 1′ scale Cole model

I hope that the above information will be of use to some one if
you have any inquiries and pass it on.

I am always ready to meet or hear from any brother ‘Live
Steamer’ as getting together and talking things over we always
learn something. I handled the real things from 1896 till 1942 and
have built several models since 1900 And do you know one thing I
did not learn it all.
