The original engine was a six H. The original engine we scaled this from came out of a nitroglycerin plant. It was used to mix the acids and glycerin for making nitro.Even after gas engines and electric motors became commonplace, steam engines were considered much more dependable. When mixing, they couldn't stop; for if they did, it was time to run for your life. With the boiler in the distance and high torque at low RPSs, the steam engine was much safer. This makes a beautiful model that you will be proud to own.
But please don't make your own nitro plant. We like having you as a customer.
