Interested in finding where the castings and prints might be available for the "Ferrabee Pillar Engine" as pictured in the opening pages of this website.

Polly Engineering do it. Could also be scratch built using back issues of the magazine which have the drawings. Price about page 8, engine page 25 of catalogue

As you will see there are only 3 castings, some laser cut parts and a bit of tube. with postage to your part of the world it may be easier to source or make a flywheel and the other two castings can be machined from solid, tube sourced locally and either hand cut the platework or draw it up and have cut locally.

There should be a post here somewhere of one being built.

The pillar is a heavy lump to turn down, and quite a lot of heat is needed to silver solder the cylinder casting together.

Quite a nice engine to make though. I have some pics on my album of it nearly finished.

I would have posted a video of the finished engine running on air if I knew how.
