I created a new hinge from brass tube, using a jig to align it whilst machining and silver soldering. The brass plaques were then bolted in place with 10BA cs bolts. Now I have a smokebox door for the Burrell that I think looks better.


I need to machine the beam that goes behind and the fixing bolt

I've now made the Burrell door handles and the locking system, this now all works at 1/20th scale.




This hopefully shows the basic locking system.

The Burrell door lock is a T-head bolt with flat sides on the threaded section. This bolt goes through the door from the back, a handle with a slot then goes on allowing the bolt to be rotated. A second handle with a threaded not then allows the bolt to be pulled up tight.

In the smokebox a beam goes across the diameter of the opening and has a slot in it to allow the bolt head to go through. Then the bolt is rotated and hence the T-head gets a purchase on the beam.




The handles were made as one part based on them being so small and then I split them into two parts later.




Still lots to do
