About as big and heavy as a watch.
Made entirely of metal, nickel-plated, with crystal, dust-proof.

Shows CORRECT MOVEMENTS of valve and piston, and sections of chest, ports, and cylinder.

Can be carried in pocket or will stand up.
A real model, with a crank and eccentric—not a toy.

It shows lap, lead, cut-off and compression-shows just what a plain slide valve engine does when at work.

This model ought to be in the hands of every engineer in America, and can be, for each can have one for himself without costing a cent in money.

Fill out slip below, cut it out, and send to POWER, World Bldg., New York,

and we will tell you how to get one.
