ENGINE DETAILS

This Lister D type stationary engine was manufactured in April/May 1951 and was produced at the Swindon factory of R.A. Lister & Co. Ltd.

It was sold by R.A. Lister & Co. Ltd. on 27/9/1951 to Pond & Son (Ironmongers & Agricultural Engineers), Blandford, Dorset.

The Company Pond & Son set up business in Blandford, Dorset in 1837 and described themselves over the next century as Ironmongers, Coppersmiths, Plumbers, Hot Water Engineers, Bell Hangers, Locksmiths, Metalworkers & Agricultural / Dairy Engineers.

It is not known exactly what this particular engine would have been used for, but was most probably used to drive metalworking or dairy equipment.

No other history is known about this engine or pump until July 2006 when it was purchased by me.

Both items had spent in excess of 10 years stored in the back of a garage workshop in Camborne, Cornwall, and had not been started or looked after in any that time.

At the time of purchase the engine was in a poor state of repair and the water pump was totally seized.

After many hours of hard work throughout the winter of 2006, this engine and domestic water pump was restored by myself into the condition you see it in today, with many parts having to be sourced and replaced, especially in the water pump.

The engine and pump are being displayed in a show condition, so some minor cosmetic changes have been made to improve their appearance.

I undertook all of the carpentry work and varnishing for the mounting of this engine with some assistance of my father who is a carpenter by trade.

A good tin per season Chris.

The art is not to use too much, and not to get it everywhere.

The wife loves helping to polish all that brass.............
