Flame licker Nick

Product information "Flame licker Nick"

The vacuum motor or flame eater 'Nick' is mostly made of brass. The flywheels are made of cast steel. 'Nick' is mounted on a varnished wooden panel. The crankshaft has ball bearings. It runs at around 200-400 rpm. The burner is height adjustable so that the speed can be regulated using the handwheel. The flame eater needs a few minutes to reach operating temperature. It can then be started with a gentle push on the flywheel. Once it is in operation, it runs for many minutes with a beautiful sound.

All milled parts have already been machined and some still need to be drilled. The materials, screws, ball bearings and spring elements required to build the flame eater and burner are included in the kit. To build the flame eater you need a small lathe, a small drill, as well as a gas burner for soldering larger parts and a burner for brazing small parts. Otherwise, hand tools, which should be in every “steam engine workshop”, are necessary (tap M2, M3, M8x0.75, cutting die M3 and M8x0.75, reamer 3H7, 4H7, 6H7, files, drill set).

Would you like to see in advance what work is still being carried out? Then take a look at the construction report from the flame eater “Nick” in our Bengs model building magazine. Here you will find many pictures and small explanatory texts about what needs to be taken into account during construction. This construction report can certainly provide you with additional support during the construction phase.

Soft soldering paste
Soft soldering paste for brass, copper, steel and silver steel. The paste is applied thinly to the parts to be tinned and heated with a brazing lamp. For large-area soft soldering, it is optimal to tin- the parts beforehand. For example, we use the paste to pre-tine the cylinder and the mirror when constructing a model steam engine. The tinning paste can also be used optimally as a flux substitute. The soft soldering paste is excellently suitable as corrosion protection for steel parts. Bengs Modellbau uses the zinc paste for steel cylinders with a cooling water jacket. For example in the Flammenfresser Kurfürst. Stirring the paste before use is not necessary! The soft soldering paste may be diluted with water.

Flame eater oil
The Flame eater oil from Bengs Modellbau is particularly suitable for lubricating the pistons and cylinders of flame-eaters in technical model construction. The flame-eater oil is an oil, based on white oil. It is liquid as water, odorless and biodegradable. Another important advantage of our Flame-eater oil for use in technical model construction is that it does not attack paints and varnishes. When the flame eater or parts of the flame eater exceed the temperatures of 150 ° C, the flame-eater evaporates and produces a beautiful white smoke. The oil we offer is normally used in the aircraft RC model building as smoke oil.   Many oils leave behind residues in the hot vacuum engine, which cause the piston to run smoothly in the cylinder. Likewise, when lubricating with graphite powder, deposits of graphite dust are produced over time, which lead to the piston becoming dull. These residues must be removed from time to time. For a long time we asked ourselves:   Which oil is best used for a flame eater or vacuum motor? And here is finally the solution! Flame eater oil from Bengs Modellbau. With the oil from Bengs Modellbau you do not have the described disadvantages and also the following advantages:   Flame eater oil is liquid like water   Odor neutral biodegradable It does not attack lacquers Best suited for technical modeling Made in Germany No dangerous good according to UN, IMO, ADR / RID, IATA / ICAO. Contains: 100ml   E-mail of a satisfied customer: I have today the Flammenfresseröl from you for my Stirlingmotor tried. Until now, I have oiled the model engines with WD 40. But the oil of you is a show! The high speeds I got with it are not comparable with WD 40. And all without residue and no hardening. Simply super! Best regards Video Flame eater oil

Silver solder wire
The silver solder wire is suitable for particularly fine soldering points in model making, crafts, industry or jewelery trade. Silver solder wire is only 0.5mm thick and can be very finely dosed. We supply you the silver braided wire as a 5 meter long piece and you can cut the silver solder wire as desired. You can also use this silver solder wire to form rings, for example, which can be used to solder a wave around the shaft during soldering and then only have to heat it with flux. By this process the silver solder is equal in the required place. The working temperature of this hard solder is 630 ° C. The silver as an alloying component in the solder does not only reduce the working temperature but also improves the flow properties. Furthermore, silver has the positive property of combining well with other metals. Brazing flux is essential for brazing brass and steel. Tip: Flux remedies and discoloration of the material can be optimally eliminated with our Satinbrushes! The silver solder wire 0.5 mm is suitable for brazing brass, copper, heavy metals, steels and stainless steel. All materials can be joined together. 1 Packing unit includes 5m 0.5mm silver solder wire Silver solder wire L-Ag55 (55% silver) !!! Cadmium free !!!

High temperature soft solder
High temperature soft solder with a melting point of 250 ° C is suitable for fittings, pipelines and components on steam engines, Stirling engines and flame eaters. The soft solder is filled with a flux that burns without residue when flame brazing (flux residues must be removed in the case of piston soldering !!!). If you need additional flux, you can use normal soft solder flux. Due to the increased melting point of 250 °, it is a good alternative to brazing. However, the high-temperature softening braze can not replace brazing. This product should not be used in the vicinity of the boiler. The use of silver solder is recommended.
