3-Cylinder Oscillating Paddle Engine project Malcolm Beak
« on: January 09, 2021, 01:31:16 AM »
Hi everyone, I built the engine designed by Malcolm Beak, had to modify it to metric measurements and had to make changes due to the available equipment and the procurement of material. Apparently it works, it won't go on any boat, it will be for demonstration purposes only. Forgive my English

Iím very impressed with your engine and wish I had a suitable shop to make one.  I spent my life working with wood and never got much into metalwork.  I also never realized how simple a steam engine could appear to be.   Nice job.

I know this engine - it would be a very reliable and interesting direct drive propulsion for paddlesteam boats.
