    Incredible Vintage Machinery and Steam Engine Photos

    WOW !! These pictures are absolutely incredible !! They all show amazing work going on to build marine steam engines. I wonder if all these photos are from the same factory ? Kind of doubt it now that I think about it. Interesting to see both both late model steam triple-expansion...

    Detroit Maker's Faire July 26 & 27

    At LEAST 2-days. I had about 6 hours to just barely scratch the surface of their collections. I spent my time mostly on the old stationary steam engines and the locomotives and machine ship in Greenfield Village. Very impressive museum, especially the full-sized engines that used to power...

    Who is going to the NAMES Expo?

    Crud :( 😢. Had planned on going. Flew to Chicago (family time) a few days ago and was going to drive today (fri) from there. Then some serious family issues came up for my brother and decided he needs my support more then I need to see some masters making outstanding models :( So I...

    Sherline's owner Joe Martin won't be down for breakfast ....

    Couldn't find an appropriate spot for this news, so guess here's the best place. Joe Martin, Sherline's owner died yesterday, 2/12/2014. Here's the news blurb that was sent to Sherline's email list. Joseph H. Martin December 3, 1934-February 12, 2014 It is with great sadness that we...

    Double acting triple - Using up spare pieces

    For someone "winging" it, you are doing a pretty darn good job !! Love the fact you're using Sherline equipment for all of this :) Interesting and different setups I would not have thought of !! :bow: Mike

    Triple Expansion Reciprocating Engine hand built scale model

    WOW !! :bow: Agree with everyone else, it'd be a shame to see your beautiful engine lost to time. It should be preserved in some place that others can see your outstanding craftsmanship !! The Sherline Internet Craftsmanship Museum would be a great place for your engine...

    Liney RV-1 - A New Double Wide

    I built the RV-1 a few years ago and was thrilled to see it run the very 1st time !! Your 2X version is going to run very nicely. One change I should have done was to use a heavier flywheel, AL is just too light, brass or steel would have been better. Though it still runs like a champ ! Looks...

    If a Norwegian robot analyzes a bird, it Scandinavian. Trust your calculator. It is something to count on. The dead batteries were given out free of charge. Police were called to a day care center where a three-year-old was resisting a rest. It was an emotional wedding. Even the cake was in...
