    Locomobile steam engine

    I will be watching this build with great interest. I have a real soft spot for steam cars, its such a great combination, cars + steam engines = perfect match. That seems to be a really nice chunk of CI you have there too.

    New mill is on the way

    Great to see you got the mill and it all worked out OK. I know I am really enjoying working with mine, such a difference to the mini mill. I have been looking to fit a DRO so its really great to see your pictures of that too. I like the way you sorted out the Y axis tram too, simple and...

    Self-Propelling Gear

    It seems everytime you post I get more amazed :o Another truly wonderful engine, and another one for the ever growing to-do list. I seem to learn by just reading your posts, I can only imagine what I would get out of actually getting round to building something.

    unwelcome visitors :(

    Pascal Really sorry to hear what has happened. I cannot even imagine what you are feeling right now. Forgetting where I left something is bad enough. Hope everything works out OK with insurance etc, and that the police find the little (too rude for words)...

    ChrisB builds the EJS Wobbler

    Hi all, I was packing this engine tonight and took a couple of pictures and thought I would share with you all. This is a Christmas gift to my father, who is really the reason why I am an engineer in the first place. It is the EJS double acting wobbler, and is my second completed engine. It...
