FeF is currently pursuing the Wally Mounster modern steam engine:
- Poppet valves
- 3D cam for full cutoff control and reverse
- Complete Intensive and Extensive Scalability
(You can purchase plans for this engine from SACA for $?) (see corresponding blog post - )
Wally Mounster of Tasmania, Australia developed a steam engine with two cylinders and a cross head cam that operates poppet valves to control the engine. It is recommended as a simple, easy to build engine by Tom Kimmel, President of the Steam Automobile Club of America (SACA).
