Midwest Model Steam

Link requests are pretty common and I try to be accommodating when the subject matter is a good fit. Another often amusing inquiry concerns "Where can I find a big,  honking huge, I mean a really impressive  model steam engine?"  By adding this link, I've multitasked a wee bit. I've not only added Nidwest Model Steam Products to this links list, but  those looking for a gigargantuan bodaciously large impressive  model steam engine can now sleep peacefully at night. Midwest Model Steam Products'  BH2 steam engine weighs in at a hernia creating 175 pounds, complete with twin cylinders with a steam  hungry 2 1/2 x 4 inches of  muscular bore and stroke. They also offer a line of model steam train parts and one very interesting little turbo generator. We're talking some serious steam here folks.

Green Velvet
Steam Cylinder Oils

Proper internal lubrication is essential to the longevity of your steam engine. As any veteran  steamer knows there just aren't many sources for steam oils left these days... especially high quality oils. Bill, at Green Velvet, has spent a large chunk of his life chasing down the formulas he uses to produce what is perhaps the most effective product  I've used.  He also sells his products at a very resonable price for small user quantities. I use it in my own engines... I like it ...  I'm sharing the information with you..... nuff said
