    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

    Making a Simple Ceramic Burner

    My thread on my work on my Rob Roy burner https://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/threads/ceramic-gas-burners-on-locos.10137/ Expert, I'm afraid not. Like you I employed an emprical approach and then realised there should be some engineering/science behind all this so went looking for...

    Can I trigger an RCEXL CDI ignition with a "typical" Hall switch?

    Have you thought about the RCEXL clones from Hobby King? https://hobbyking.com/en_us/replacement-complete-ignition-set-for-twin-cylinder-gas-engines-10mm-plug.html Only US$ 35 each. They have twin units for various plug types but changing the plug caps isn't hard 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...

    Angie Some will some won't, a number won't be aware they could and no doubt there will be a number who wouldn't know how to do it. It takes a bit of discipline but once you get into the swing of it its not that hard. It also depends on the nature of your new host and your ability to match the...

    It has occurred to me why moderators won't unlock posts. Its not practical, I'm guessing it’s about moderation, once a post has been moderated for content it then gets locked so the moderators don't need to go back to it. Otherwise, they'd have to re-moderate all the re-edited posts...

    I've now fixed all my posts on the MECH and MEM forums but for some reason can't do it here. I can edit recent posts but don't get that option on any older posts. If you want this forum updated can the moderators/admins investigate please and come back with a fix or reason why it can't be...
