"I have had the No.10v Engine for 5 years, and it has run on an average five nights a week, six hours a night. I am running the engine in our town on Saturday night for the Hospital, so I want it to be at its best, and show them what the Stuart No. 10 can do, and the workmanship of your parts.

A customer writes with reference to hiss No. 10 Horizontal Engine which has been driving a dynamo for the past year very successfully, but needs a few renewals :—
In reply to our query as to the size of dynamo the engine was driving, he states ;— " My dynamo is an 8 volt 4 amps, which lights a reading bracket for the head of two beds in different rooms. They are 4 volt pear shaped bulbs, and do excellent work. The engine works from my boiler at an average of 40-lbs. per square inch, and has a good power, and runs at an enormous speed, starting on its own when not in dead centre."
C. W. D. , South Africa writes :—
"I received set of No.10 Castings. Thank you for your prompt attention. I cannot express how satisfied I am with the e=set. It is perfect in every detail.

N. K. writes :—
"I may say that some time ago I purchased a No.10 Horizontal Steam Engine set 3/4-in. for x 3/4-in. stroke from you which when finished, turned out to be a very sweet running and powerful little plant, and delighted everyone to whom I showed it. Although having no previous knowledge of steam engineering, the finishing of your machined castings set did not present the slightest difficulty, every part being so accurately turned out by you."

F. B. F. writes :—
"I now have your No. 504 Boiler put together and think it is a first-rate steamer as I have got it driving an S.50 Engine and Dynamo. The exhaust steam is then taken to a pair of No. 10 Horizontal Engines made upright and left-hand coupled together, thus using the steam like a compound engine. Am very pleased with all the goods you have supplied."

1st February, 1925

W. B. writes :—
"I received the No. 504 Boiler and fittings as ordered, and I must say that I am very pleased indeed with them, and I thank you for your prompt delivery. I have one of your No. 10 Engines which I got about 10 years ago , so now I have got what I wanted for a long time."


This is literally a miniature No.9. Almost every feature is replicated in small size. Other than the number of bolts used to secure each part the only differences are; a combined Eccentric Strap and Rod, no Valve Rod Guide. The valve chest cover has a circular recess cast in the front, originally designed to break up the plain surface, later engines had the S logo cast into it.


The No.10 H had a single evolution from the originalm single sided croshead guide to the tubular style. This allowed the engine to be set to run in either direction without excess strain. Mounting the soleplate is however trickier to mount for machining.
