|Thread: Model Steam Fire Engine 1908 Frank Finch|
Thanks Bob, that’s useful. A friend of mine recently showed me some pictures of a model fire engine which I thought might be to this design. It turns out that it is actually a Bing produced model.
Does anyone on here have access to the Model Engineers from 1908 describing the Model Steam Fire Engine Design by Frank Finch please?
|Thread: Mild steel wheel blanks|
Yes laser cutting can leave a hard skin, suggest you tickle them with an angle grinder first.
|Thread: College Engineering Supplies rotary table|
Yes it is for controlling the mesh of the worm. I have the drawings and can post them if anyone is interested.
I built one years ago, I don’t recall any particular issues, I can post some pictures of it if you want.
|Thread: Cutting a slot in a turned piece|
Yes Mick that’s exactly what I was thinking.
I would slot them before parting them off to length. That way you can hold the bar stock in the machine vice with the end for slotting overhanging.
|Thread: Locos Built by Reginald Morris|
Here are photos of two of the locos, the Schools and a Springbok
I am trying to trace, for a friend, the current whereabouts of three locos which were built by Reginald Arthur Francis Morris in the 1970s. They all won prizes at the ME Exhibition and one was a Schools named “Harrow” as he was a teacher at Harrow School apparently. Amy information greatly appreciated.
|Thread: Hello from Rugby!|
Definitely suggest Rugby MES if you live in Rugby. We have a very good 2 1/2” , 3 1/2” and 5” raised track, which is being extended, as well as a 7 1/4” ground level track.

Steam Oil for loco cylinders is 460 viscosity if I recall correctly, so should do the trick.
