Default Cleaned Up Another Nice Old Steam Engine w Pictures and Video

I brought this home recently and had done nothing other than a quick wipe down until now. I spent several hours disassembling, cleaning, and assembling and timing it. I could easily see that many years ago someone spent a lot of time cleaning up and smoothing out the iron castings. All I did was give it a deep and fairly thorough cleaning.

Below are some pictures before and after and a video.

Enjoy,

Gil
