    Casting Kits I would like to see For Sale Again

    Green Twin, Here's one I think you might be interested in: I contacted the company about 10 years ago about a set of castings and was told that none were in stock, that the patterns needed a lot of reworking and blah, blah...

    Video of Ellwe Diesel? Running

    That's a crankcase scavenged 2 cycle similar to Fairbanks Morse. The second eccentric is likely for the jacket water pump. The B&W Alpha shown in one of the videos is also 2 cycle but has 2 stage reciprocating blower mounted aft of the 4th cylinder for scavenging air. I've run a couple of 3...

    Coventry Compound Vertical Engine Drawings

    I have the full sized prints and the Live Steam copies as well. It will take a week or so to dig them out and see about reproduction. One thought is to scan them and convert to PDF so they could be emailed.

    Band saws

    I picked up a Walker Turner 14" bandsaw about 20 years ago that has served me very well. It's late '40s vintage and built like a tank. One thing I really like about it is the motor has a two-speed gearbox mounted directly to it which gives me 8 speeds total. I've replaced the tires once and made...

    Merryweather Fire King - a novice build

    I had the opportunity to steam aboard Eppleton Hall in 1975. It was quite an experience! The politics at the Museum are a problem when it comes to Eppie. She really should be back on the Tyne where she has true historic significance. I recently saw a film of tugs working taken in 1962 and there...

    Morse tape in lathe.

    I'm going to chime in again. Thinking back to when I bought my Rockwell lathe, I remember finding a single 4C collet in the cabinet and being able to fit it directly into the spindle bore without any adapter. I called one of the East Coast US machinery dealers (Meridian?, Plaza?) and he said...

    Morse tape in lathe.

    I had one of those lathes and I vaguely recall the headstock bore fit a 4C collet. Tailstock was MT2.

    Advanced Engine Building Projects

    I have a set of Coventry compound castings and prints that I picked up from Cole's several years ago. It will be a few more years until I get around to starting on them so I can't vouch for the accuracy of the prints. I would be interested in hearing what you come up with for errors. On another...
