Renown Windmill
This was the second steam toy that Renown produced.
It was basically the vertical engine taken off its cast base and fitted onto a large rectangular cast base with a windmill and water pump on it, driven by the engine.
In later models the cast iron base was replaced with a pressed steel one.
The early models featured a large cast brass pulley while the later models had a sheet metal pulley.
Also it was made with or without the filler bolt.
If you need to make a replacement part for this engine I have some plans for parts of these engines which were made by a fellow collector who has given me permission to make them available here. Either go to the Restoration section or click here.
