Thread: Domestic 3 Phase, Tariffs and Supplier Switching
24/07/2018 19:24:49

You could try u switch for a price comparison or try Scottish Hydro for a price. I stick with them as they are always more than helpful plus they contact you if they have a cheaper tariff available. To be honest with you I have reached the stage in life that I just cannot be fussed to find the cheapest deal and keep on swapping. If I pay a few bob more more than I need to so be it, as long as they look after me.

Scottish Hydro charge same price for domestic 3 phase as single phase.

Been with them now for ten years as consider not been ripped off.

Posted as a comment on another thread but I found the comment interesting.

Indeed an interesting comment.

The best thing about this forum is it is not biased in favour of any one aspect of model engineering - thank goodness which is why it is the only one I follow.

Model engineering clearing house I tried and left as locomotives seems to be the only area of interest.

Traction Talk have an excellent section for minature traction engines as well as full size.

Thread: What have I got here?

Top picture - suggest two items on left Stuart 10H and single item on right Stuart 10V.

I suspect the flywheel may not be a Stuart item.

Thread: Is Aluminium wood primer any good at preventing exterior wood rotting?

Coal tar creosote is all we use on the farm for stake / poles in groundwork. However, In July 2003, it became an offence for the general public to purchase and apply Coal Tar Creosote. It is available on the internet.

Thread: Any idea what this is?
24/04/2018 09:28:20

Put this up an ebay and I will certainly bid.

For the small minority that are interested in model engineering rather than things like local dialects, plastic and facebook.

That made me chuckle Jason

Thanks for posting - some seriously nice models.

Thread: I've been looking at getting a traction engine.
24/04/2018 09:19:46

If you want a ready to run one that would suggest contacting Mike Palmer at Station Road Steam and ask him to find one for you.

He currently has one for sale.

24/04/2018 08:00:33

Jason is spot on with his advice.

STW kits come in stages - so it could be a couple of years before complete. Always the possibility they may cease production during that period.

Maxitrak do a  A & P 3 inch as a complete machined kit which means you could be up and running sooner. They are considered a good model by SRS.

Either way, you are looking as around £15,000 plus shipping

Station Road Steam website is worth looking at. The archive traction engine section shows the various models.

Thread: Macc Models
20/04/2018 18:45:31

Always had good service from Joe. E-mailed him to ask if all well - had an immediate reply which he asks me to post .


Sorry if people had a wasted trip to Macc Models on 20th April. Today I had to rush to hospital with my pregnant wife, I’m afraid I didn’t have time to put a note on the door as it was an emergency. I am now taking a week off work with my wife. Sorry if this put you out, but I too have a life and family that I have to look after.

If anyone has any issues what so ever with macc models. Please email me and I will try my best to resolve the issue.

Thanks again Bill for bringing this to my attention

Regards Joe

Same situation. I went through the process as posted by Martin above and opted for Maxitrak kits.

Did not have the equipment nor an engineering background, and did not want to spend hours learning the techniques and then making one due to other interests.

Also, declining health and years to go were a consideration.

STW kits considered but were too big for me to handle plus they could go out of business halfway the build.

So one inch scale fitted the bill, able to steam it and watch in action so well content.


Thread: Silver soldering contradiction

Not seen the article so may I ask if this gap business is a constant for all items or are there different rules for different jobs ie like copper boiler flanged end plates as opposed to a steel crankshaft assembly.

Thread: Egerton tool and equipment co - a company in Edgware.
11/07/2017 13:35:49


11/07/2017 11:00:28

Would be interested to know if any members have heard of this company please ?

They were based at 247 / 249, Burnt Oak, Broadway. Edgware up until 1991.

They sold high quality model working tools and also instruments.

The tools had an enamaled metal badge with WALTOOL on it.

I have a copy of their advertising and a picture of the tools which I can e-mail anybody as I do not know how to upload.

Thank you.
