Reynolds trip gear
Drawing not to scale
The valve latches on the model are represented
by metal spring clips positioned so as to
operate the dashpot rods as near to the
prototype as possible.
Engines with Corliss valves showed valuable
savings in fuel costs over those using slide
valves and this was a major contributory
factor to their popularity. Edwin Reynolds
held 52 patents and played a very important
part in the formation of Allis Chalmers
Co., in 1901, then due to poor health he
retired in 1905 and died in 1909.
