In the Current Issue of Model Engineer

Issue 4696, 29th July - 11th August 2022

In this issue ...

We explore the black art of designing coils to drive both an induction motor and a Hipp clock, complete a three-cylinder oscillating engine and make a surprise discovery in South Africa.

Luker discovers a very useful engine hidden in the dark recesses of the Rand society’s shed.
Peter Seymour-Howell makes a set of cylinder liners and valve guides for his fine scale 5-inch gauge Flying Scotsman locomotive.
Graham Astbury explains how a single-phase induction motor may be rewound to enable it to run at two different speeds.
David Allen presents a wooden framed driving truck for 5-inch gauge, making extensive use of laser cut components. Cliff Almond constructs the bar frames for his narrow gauge Guinness locomotive William Spence in 7¼ inch gauge and discusses the evolution of the prototype engine.
Mick Knights makes a set of valves and rocker arms for his supercharged V8 internal combustion engine Little Demon.
Doug Hewson completes the tender for his 5-inch gauge B1 locomotive.
John Arrowsmith reports from the ground level 5-inch gauge rally at Gilling East and discovers a railway run entirely prototypically except for the size of the drivers.
York model engineers build themselves a new workshop and storage facilities.
Hotspur completes his three-cylinder oscillating engine by adding the reversing mechanism.
Carl Wilson details the design process for the coil used to drive his Hipp clock.
