    I think that Titfield Thunderbolt/Lion is one of a well documented series of locomotives by
    Curly Lawrence. I think that if you follow the 'words and music' of any of the models you will
    not be far wr...

    I'm waiting for my shed to be erected-- or is it an ark? However, the Sieg has got a new 4 jaw
    independent chuck, a faceplate, a ER25 collet holder and the start( eventually) of a fitment to

    Happy belated birthday greetings--- young man. Weather in the Newcastle -- upon Tyne variety is
    dis-buggerable and piss- instantly raining. Little wonder that I have moved a lathe indoors
    where the ce...

    The news broke that 'more than 20,000 workshop drawings have been discovered for the Wooden
    Wonder, the De Havilland Mosquito which used two R.R.Merlins. Few aircraft could equal this

    From what I could see from the guys using a real torch they get a very small red hot spot.
    Cheers,J. The 'hot spots' as you describe them were through holes made by ones fingers in the
    plug of wet pa...

    A bit of 'Theoretical Engineering' here but this is in old parlance 'Oil Drumming'. The cure
    was often a wet plug of asbestos( shock horror) and spotting with an oxy/acetylene torch.
    Again, 30 odd yea...
