Paddlewheels For Display
« on: November 19, 2013, 12:02:24 AM »
Hello All

I am interested in building a set of paddlewheels and possibly an engine to drive them, for display purposes only. At this point I don't want to do the whole boat.

Can anyone direct me to accurate plans for 6" to 8" wheels, (close to my lathe throw limit) .

This is a project that has been on my mind for a long time and I would like to get it done.

Cheers

Tom

Hi Tom,

You will find a set of drawings for the Waverley's paddlewheels in our Downloads area.... They are in PDF format, so you should be able to resize them to whatever scale you want.

There are probably other drawings in there as well, there's far too much stuff for me to remember everything! :)

Regards
Eddy
