Southworth Steam Pump 12" for sale plus other stuff

Post by the severn bore » Thu Feb 27, 2020 10:08 pm

Hello Everyone,

Having abandoned my steamboat dreams (main engine already sold), there are a few more items to go:

1. Recently completed 12" Southworth Vertical Steam Pump.
Has been tested on air. Both steam and water ends are bronze. Comes with displacement lubricator, globe valve and cylinder drain cocks.
Anyone willing to give me £850 for it? I am open to offers. I will post a picture when I work out how to do it!

2. Hand test pump with tank and hose. Never used - has been stuck in a box on the shelf in the workshop. Sensible offers considered, say £50?

3. A copy of 'Steamboats and Modern Steam Launches' by Bill Durham in VGC. £20 ONO.

4. A quantity of SBA 'Funnel' magazines going back approximately 10 years FREE to a collector in person.

5. Boatbuilding formers for a Selway Fisher 'Ijssel' launch. FREE as they didn't go before!

6. A Red Ensign in nylon material, approximately the same size as A1 paper. I might throw this in for free with one of the above.

Buyer/collector can collect personally from me in the UK West Midlands or I can ship the pump or the book at cost price. All other (larger) items to be by personal collection only please.

Regards,

Hi Severn,

I sent you a PM. I'm curious to know if the pump might still be available.

Cheers,

If he doesn't, I have two :)
The mail from Canada might be a bit slow, however...

Hello Andy,

Sorry for not checking this more often!

Yes the book is still up for grabs. I can post at cost if you want.

Hello All,

Just a note to say that the Southworth pump has now been sold, but the other items on the advert are still up for grabs.

I don't suppose you're flexible on the "in person" requirement for the copies of the Funnel? I'd be happy to pay shipping.

Hello Tom,

Yes I could box them up and post if your want. Roughly where are you based?

I am in the UK Midlands, not far from a certain river..

Hello Tom,

Saw Yukon and instantly thought Canada!

I put the magazines in a box and weighed them, and it comes to 7kg or 15.5 pounds.

I need to do a bit of research to see what the least expensive shipment method will be.
