    good morning guys :)

    i just got a bunch of home shop machinist mags.
    there is two very interesting engine builds in these books but i didn't get the compleat set of plans :(

    i was wondering if someone on this news group might have the plans i need and be able to scan them and email them to me ;D

    the first engine is called topsy turvy and i need the forth part of the build.

    the second engine is called victorian and i need the first and fifth parts of the build.

    i dont have the years that these articles apeared but i will add that info to this post tonight

    thanks

    Philip Duclos's plans are in several published books. The one my wife bought for me last Christmas was "Two Shop Masters"

    http://www.yesteryeartoys.com/cgi-local/bookcatalog.cfm?view=45-T3609

    It has full plans and construction notes for several of his engines including the victorian, the gearless hit and miss, the odds and ends, the little blazer, ...

    I really like the book but I didn't find the Frank McLean section all that useful.

    BTW that book sells for $42 new from the publisher Village Press 1-800-447-7367

    I am looking for plans of an engine for my next project.
    does anyone know of one published book available with P Duclos 'topsy turvy' engine.

    p.s. any body attend the WEME show in vallejo Ca. USA?

    I'm just finishing up a somewhat modified version of the Victorian and can recommend it to experienced builders. It's been a fun build. The 2 Duclos books are a righteously solid investment. I'd be for acquiring the pair of them, if at all possible. I also see them on Ebay from time to time.

    After reading this post I decided to order the "Two Shop Masters" Frank McLean and Philip Duclos, I already had the "Shop Wisdom of Philip Duclos. What great books and well worth the cost, about $50 each with shipping.

    Ray the Topsy-turvy engine is in the Two Shop Masters book and it looks like the one I am going to look at to build next.

    Thank you Mel
    I think it will be my next build also depending on the plans. I just finished the VAL engine from MEB magazine and had a lot of desgn work to do. The editor is going to reprint the whole drawing package in a future issue.

    After looking at the 'topsey' drawings I'm wondering if anyone can think of a reason not to use 6061 verses HRS for the body from a practcal design standpoint.

    Looking frward to comments.

    i think 6061 is fine if you want to polish the engine body.
    if you want to paint the body i think steel would be a better choice.

    just my 2 cents

    Thanks Chuck;
    That was the answer I wanted but not expected . 6061 it will be.
