Lane & Bodley Corliss Live Steam Engine by John V. McDivitt
Up for sale is an extraordinarily fine execution of a Lane and Bodley Corliss Engine as built by the late master builder, John V. McDivitt, out of cast iron, steel, and brass. John made each part himself from castings, bar stock, round stock, etc, including every last stud, nut, and bolt. Unfortunately due to bad health, I must liquidate few pieces from my collection. This is a very rare opportunity to own this piece of mechanic art. You will not come across another one like this. John built total 4 of this Corliss engines style, 2 single and 2 dual cylinders.
And I have three in my collection. One of the other Dual cylinder is with another collector. Note: John McDivitt passed away in October 2008 at the age of 89.
