To the Right, a History of the Prototype Liney powerplant. With the curtesy of the Right Honourable Roger G.
Markie, a short resumè.
The Liney Prototype Powerplant
LiNEy's Lance Erickson offered this engine to me as a prototype he'd been working on. I asked for some minor modifications which he implemented perfectly and he added a few nice extras for me by the time I received the final piece.
Features incorporated into this prototype "Power Plant" include:
- a shaft riding in two sets of ball bearings set into brass mounts
- machine beveled black metal engine mount
- turned solid brass lamp post
- LiNEy logo engraved into the end of the 1/8 inch diameter shaft
- flywheel jeweled on both sides
- brushed aluminum base plate
- walnut plinth measuring just 3.5 x 4.25 inches.
LiNEy incorporated their logo in a tiny location indeed...the end of the 1/8" diameter shaft, it can be seen below in a super closeup:
The whole works will fit in the palm of your hand. Nice piece of work Lance!!
This last part is being written in May 2012 for new owner Knut A**********rd of Norway.
Knut wishes to thank Roger for the time and effort he took into making this explanatory article of this totally unique engine. It is with profound thanks and gratitude I have resived this jewel for safe keeping. Thank you to my friend Roger.
