Description

Rudy's Model Steam Tractor will reprint, for what we believe to be the first time, Rudy's Case-style traction engine project that was originally published in Popular Mechanics magazine. The drawings in this book were hand drawn by Rudy himself, and have been only gently enhanced using a modern CAD program, allowing them to retain their original craftsman's touch.

Build the Snow -- A Tandem, Double-Acting Engine
Author

By Doug Kelley

Description
Doug Kelley's very popular Snow natural gas pumping engine, as an internal combustion engine construction series, first appeared in The Home Shop Machinist magazine. An ample supply of back issues in which the project appeared soon sold out -- encouraging reprint in a booklet format. The resulting 44-page plus cover saddle stitch volume includes 13 pages of photos that showcase full-size Snow engines housed in museum settings around the U.S. -- some that run and some that are being restored with the intent to run.
