In Issue 4497 - IN THE SHOPS NOW!
In this issue ... Bags of variety this issue: some on-site maintenance at the Northern Mill Engine Society's headquarters in Bolton as the engineering team rebore a Corliss valve chamber; Eric Basire of Wimborne & District SME describes the club's new sugnalling system, Randolph Bulgin makes a neat little 'two tone' puzzle to test your machining skills and LBSC continues with the timeless series on locomotive construction. Roger Backhouse pays his second visit to the London Trasport Museum and, as promised, we make a fresh start, from the beginning, with Stewart Hart's delightfully simple true vertical mill engine.
We are sorry to have to inform readers that Keith Wilson, a popular and prolific writer for Model Engineer, passed away in the morning of 12th November.
A short service to commemmorate the life of Keith was held at Lower Ince Crematorium, Wigan.
Donations made in memory of Keith will be forwarded to North West Air Ambulance, a charity he supported for many years.
A full obituary, for which we indebted to his son, Alan, will be published in Issue 4498.

This year’s Model Engineer Exhibition will be held over the 12, 13 and 14 December. What a marvellous opportunity to do all your Christmas shopping in one place? Last year’s exhibition was big success with numbers up and excellent feedback from visitors, exhibitors and traders. The new ‘Maker Fayre’ section was very popular and We are delighted to confirm that Marc Barto has agreed to organise its return again this year. For those of us who want to learn more about topics such as 3D-printing this is a great opportunity. The pictures show models from recent exhibitions.
