Solid Fuel Tablets
Fuel for your Mamod or Wilesco steam engine is normally provided by Mamod or MSS solid fuel tablets. They fit into the solid fuel burner tray and are placed under the engine boiler when lit using matches or, better still, a kitchen gas cooker lighter.
MSS solid fuel tablets are cheaper to buy. Also, they are recommended by us.
It's not just any old oil you know! This lubricating oil is the only grade of oil recommended by Mamod Ltd for working parts. Without the correct oil, the effect of heat and steam can cause oil emulsification leading to a rapid breakdown in surface protection. Now, it's not the end of the world if that happens, but it will place additional burden upon your pocket as you buy a new piston assembly in a couple of months! You have been advised............
Be the user of genuine Mamod parts!
LABEL MAY BE PRINTED IN RED.
Suitable for all Mamod steam engines. They are covered by a thin layer of wax to help with keeping the tablets dry when in mildly damp conditions. This is a good thing because it is a safety factor which makes igniting a rather slow process using matches.
We use a mini butane blow torch to ignite ours in the workshop.
IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE OF THE UK PLEASE DO NOT ORDER - CANNOT BE TRANSPORTED OVERSEAS.
This is what you've been dreaming of for so long.
You are fed up with spending too long dribbling water into your boiler and then spilling it everywhere.
This is so simple. See the detaled description.
