Thread: SC4 Compound Slide Dimensions
18/06/2019 20:01:15

Thank a lot for that Neil.

Hopefully it should be similar to Stefan Gotteswinter's creation.

A bit of an odd request.
Would an SC4 owner be kind enough to tell me the distance between the T slots on the top of the carriage, and the approximate stack height from the top of the carriage to the top of the compound slide.

I just need to get an idea of the size of the chunk of iron required to replace the compound slide.

Many thanks


Thread: Estate clearance - Help with value
09/03/2019 08:20:52

Morning all, I hope you don't mind me asking this.

A steam enthusiast local to me has sadly passed away and his family are selling the entire contents of his workshop in the form of a sealed auction.

There's a rather beautiful Super 7 and a large quantity of tools and material that I have my eye on. However there are also two semi-complete steam locomotives.









Can anyone identify these kits, or does anyone have any idea of their value?

It's incredibly frustrating that this is a sealed auction and all being sold as one lot. I'm hoping that my bid can reflect the value of these kits so I can pass them on to someone who is willing to complete them, and not just weigh them in.

Apologies if this post is in the wrong area of the forum.

I've got to say that ARC's clearance section is bursting at the seams today

This seems like a great place to make a spurious post to be able to view the classifieds...

Thread: Hello from the Isle of Man

Greetings all,

I've got a few little projects floating around in my head and I think it's time to make a start on them. I'm going to try and pick up a mill/lathe and put some of my grandfather's 1940's era tools to use.

I hope to learn a lot from you all,
