Cyldon 13/1


This is the slightly later version of the 13/1. The firebox is the same style as the later Cyldon type and is made of steel. The burner is also the later type. (See here for the first version.)

The brass boiler is 1 3/4" diameter x 4 3/8" long. It is fired by a brass cylindrical three wick meths burner. It has a safety valve, whistle and separate filler plug and overflow plug. It has a dummy chimney. The boiler is held onto the steel firebox with a single brass band. The copper steam pipe exits from the bottom of the boiler inside the firebox, thus getting a very small degree of superheat.

The steam is fed directly to the back of the port face of the oscillating cylinder. The brass cylinder is 5/16" bore x 3/4" stroke. It is a single acting oscillating type. The crank shaft is steel, with a brass disk crank at one end, a small pulley at the other and mazac flywheel in the centre.
