She's sweet, she's simple, Sugar was designed for the beginner
and was built on the Unimat in less than 3 months for about £35.
Sugar is a freelance design in 2½ in. gauge, designed using my valveless
engine units and simplified in many ways to enable the beginner to
tackle the job easily, and the expert, quickly. All work was carried
out on the Unimat 3 lathe where possible, otherwise by hand and sweat of
Driving wheel dia. 1¾"
Two outside Cylinders, ½" bore x 29/32" stroke
Boiler 2" diameter x 3½" long, round top, 70psi, coal fired.
Instructions for building Sugar appeared in The Model Engineer, issues 3575-9, 3580-1, in 1977-8.
