Antique Gas Stationary Engine Model - Slide Shaft Otto Deutz ? For Sale
ANTIQUE STATIONARY ENGINE MODEL - OTTO ENGINE?
You are offerding on what I believe to be a small scale model of an Otto Slide Shaft Engine. It is constructed of cast iron with brass parts and appeared to have been funtional at one time. I purchased this as I am interested in old mechanical objects, but I believe this should be in the hands of a Stationary Engine collector. The only markings are on the oiler ports, marked D.R.G.M. with the numbers 35953 (appear to be this number, hard to read). With that I would assume it was made in Germany prior to the 1940's, my guess is early 1900's. I could not find out much about this online or any similar examples, just pictures of normal size engines or more recently made models.
The cast iron base, body and flywheelshave no cracks or damage, etc. It is uncleaned, just as I found it. The two small gears that rotate the slide shaft have no damage. The single piston? goes in and out of the bore fine as the flywheels arerotated and it looks pretty clean.
There are two plates that screw down to hold the flywheel axle - the two screws for each of these are missing, there were improper screws in when I got it. The threads in the holes to accept the screws look ok. At the front there may be a piece or two missing, Iam not sure. Also, there is a spark plug type thing on the side that screws in, there are two screw holes on top and bottom of that. One of the little screws is missing.
The engine is approximately 8 1/2" long and 6" high - the diameter of the flywheels is 5 3/4". It weighs 6.4 lbs. on my digital scale.
Again I am selling this just as found, hopefully I have offered enough information and photos. If there are any additional questions please feel free to contact me and I will do the best I can to answer. I am starting the sale at just over what I gave for this piece. Thanks.

On Mar-20-13 at 09:13:23 PDT, seller added the following information:
It has been suggested to me that this small engine may have been made by a German toy company such as Schoenner or Marklin ? in the late 1800's or early 1900's. I checked for markings and only see the number 1 (very small on one of the edges of the cast iron base) kind of stamped next to an X mark. With that I do not know exactly who made it or it's intented purpose. It appears manufactured vs. machined by somebody. Thanks all for the interest.
