Steamco Engines Australia

 

Steamco Engines Australia are based in Victoria Australia and is still in production.
My personal opinion is these are one of the best made brands of engine in their price range.

They currently offer only two stationaries, the STC-01 stationary engine and the STC-04 overtype engine.
Both engines are made of copper and brass, silver soldered on a steel base with steel flywheels. They are great runners and nice to look at.

They used to offer a marine engine and a complete boat fitted with this engine. They come up rarely on ebay and are worth getting if you have the cash.
