Hello

I have been lucky and won an SP1 at Ebay together with a S.E.L. 1070 mill and a Mamod press accessory.

Is it correct that the SP1 had no water glass beside that feature was introduced a year before the SP1 was released?

 Mamods are fescinating and need a lot less space than most Wilescos.

True. The SP1 boiler was too small for a sight glass. It had the old overflow plug.

Thank you Roly.
I just wondered why Mamod circumnavigated their own brand new safety rules. Now I understand the reason. I am very excited and want to steam her but I think I have to wait a week or two.

No sight glass, was also probably the reason, for it being quickly discontinued, as it couldn't be exported to the then EEU, due to not meeting the safety regulations.

I am sure you are right, also the small boiler was different to all the rest, so would have been disproportionately expensive to manufacture.

They are very nice engines, prettier than their larger brethren.
