Chris' Tips These Elderberry Steam Engines come with the best drawings and construction booklets in the business. The drawings are all CAD generated, with complete dimensions and tolerances. The Construction Manual is a virtually complete how-to for using the mini lathe and mini mill.
The construction manuals for the Elderberry kits form a series. The launch engine is the first in the series. The mill engine construction manual builds on skills learned from building the launch engine, and the toy loco builds on skills learned from building the other two projects.
The drawing sets for each kit are complete. If you don't need the detailed construction manual to help improve your machining skills, you can build these kits in any order.
