    This from ME site, in case you don't go there. Another asset to our fraternity gone to the big workshop in the sky. He will be missed. We are sad to announce the passing of John Bertinat. A name familiar to many readers of Model Engineer, John wrote many articles and is remembered for his...

    Knee deep in popcorn.

    The modest start to yet another popcorn engine. 1. Flywheel - straight spokes because the 1/4" brass rod I had refused to bend even after heavy annealing, it would go so far then snap (cold short). 2. Cylinder - slightly modified from Stew's design. Bore take out to 9/16" amd a little...

    Unusually, ANZAC Day falls on Easter Monday this year - let us not overlook it because of that. Hoist the flag, Aussies!

    Adept standard lathe question

    Anyone here have one of these little beasties? I have a friend who has one, sans tailstock and hand rest and would greatly appreciate the dimensions of both if possible.

    Kerzel a'la Tel

    I haven't posted much on this build, as I didn't want to intrude too much on Brian's excellent coverage of his build, but as Brian's version enters its final few struggles to completion I thought I might just give a few progress shots now & then. The last couple of wet days has finally allowed...

    Tailstock Turret

    Something I've wanted for rather a long time is a tailstock turret, so a couple of weeks back I started looking around for a suitable design. Came up with almost an embarrassment of riches! Two on the web (Harold Hall and GH Thomas) and a somewhat vague one in Sparey's book, and, in the current...

The abiding mystery is why I always fall for these things - it's not as if I don't have enough on the go already...

During the course of the weekend a bloke turned up with this engine, wanting do info/advice. Now on the face of it, it is an ordinary oscillator built onto the...

    Getting ready

    This weekend is the last frantic burst getting ready for the display next weekend. I've identified 8 engines to take along, and my enginering pard will be bringing another 5 or 6 - should be enough to keep us busy with the two boilers. Today, a bunch of adaptors so that we can be sure his...

    Another one underway

    During my recent cruising around the net I came across this site which has a wealth of potential models just waiting to be made. I was particularly taken by the very top one, a double cylinder horizontal oscillator. Been thinking about it for a few days, and I reckoned that the only really...
