    Ceramic Gas burners on Locos

    It’s been a long time since I posted on this thread as I've moved to loco's that are coal fired However, I still get the occasional query and it seems that this thread has become bit of a reference so I'll post this here. I got my jets from a model engineering supplier but recently I've...

    Making a Simple Ceramic Burner

    Rick I had a look at your video, Impressive and, as you say more than enough steam produced. I had come to the conclusion I was producing about 12000BTU's so it would seem we are both in the same ball park with our calculations. Regards Pete

    Nearly back in the fold

    John I had been wondering how you were doing and did one of my rare visits to HMEM and here you are back, and only days ago. Good to hear you are on the mend and thinking about getting back into your workshop. That should be good therapy for you. All the best Pete

    The Beginning of another I. C. Engine,

    I was around at Dave's today while he did some fabrication work for the club track. After the obligitary cup of tea (we're both Brits) he showed me the engine, with the carb we'd both purchased from Hobby King. The engine was cold, we'd been working together on the welding for 3 hours or so...
