Stephenson's Rocket
Stephenson's Rocket was an early steam locomotive of 0-2-2 wheel arrangement. It 
was built for, and won, the Rainhill Trials held by the Liverpool & Manchester 
Railway in 1829 to choose the best design to power the railway.
Rocket was designed by Robert Stephenson in 1829, and built at the Forth Street 
Works of his company in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Though the Rocket was not the first steam locomotive, it was the first to bring 
together several innovations to produce the most advanced locomotive of its day. 
It is the most famous example of an evolving design of locomotives by Stephenson 
that became the template for most steam engines in the following 150 years.
The locomotive was preserved and is now on display in the Science Museum in 
The locomotive had a tall smokestack chimney at the front, a cylindrical boiler 
in the middle, and a separate firebox at the rear. The large front pair of wooden 
wheels was driven by two external cylinders set at an angle. The smaller rear 
wheels were not coupled to the driving wheels, giving an 0-2-2 wheel arrangement.
Stephenson designed Rocket for the Rainhill trials, and the specific rules of 
that contest. 
As the first railway intended for passengers more than freight, the rules 
emphasised speed and would require reliability, but the weight of the locomotive 
was also tightly restricted. Six-wheeled locomotives were limited to six tons, 
four-wheeled locomotives to four and a half tons. In particular, the weight of 
the train expected to be hauled was to be no more than three times the actual 
weight of the locomotive. Stephenson realised that whatever the size of 
previously successful locomotives, this new contest would favour a fast, light 
locomotive of only moderate hauling power.

1 X Product Notes -  Letting you know an Approximate Height, Length and Width of your finished product and giving the Approximate Size of the Largest Part.  These Approximations are given in Imperial and Metric. Remember, These are Approximate Sizes. 

Approximate Size at 3mm
L = 318
W = 117
H = 267
Approximate Size at 1/8 inch
L = 12.5
W = 4.6
H = 10.5
Approximate Size of Largest Part
4.6 X 12.5 inches
117 X 318 mm
Approximate Part Number: 208
NOTE: Our 3D Puzzles can be built in different thicknesses.

Example: 1/8" uses 1/8" Plywood...1/4" uses 1/4" Plywood, etc.
As a rule, although the slots are set to fit the same sized tool, most
people will use a smaller bit size when cutting.

All the hard work is done!

Makecnc is excited to bring to the CNC hobbyist a new and ever-expanding library of art and projects made ready-to-cut on your CNC machine!

You can either sell the cut out projects as your own product or assemble them for your own enjoyment and to give as gifts to your family and friends.
