Paddlewheel steam engine
 
Wanted: Scripps type paddle wheel steam engine.

For years on and off I have tried to contact the Scripps foundry and machine works in Fredericksburg, TX and they don't answer the phone, or return calls, or have a web site or Email. That being the case I need a different company from which I can buy a paddle wheel steam engine similar to those which Scripps used to make. Does anyone know of anywhere I might acquire a paddlewheel steamboat engine of say, 2 inch piston by 12 inch throw? Actually I only need one cylinder for my purpose. Thank you all very much.

Scripps has sold his business, but someone else is still making those engines. I will try to find the information you need.
