|Thread: Heinrici engine|
Any comments ?
Here's a question for the Stirling engine experts out there,.............Will a stirling engine "scale up" ?
I've just built the engine in this thread, it has 7" flywheels, I have in stock a couple of 14" flywheels and would like to build another engine twice the size ,
My question is will it scale up and run the same as the smaller one, with a larger burner of course.
I've just built this Stirling hot air engine , based on the Heinrici engine, all fabricated except the flywheels,
7" wheels, 21" to top of wheels, coke can for size comparison, heat is a small Primus 8842 propane burner,
Runs lovely, water cooled cold end is aluminium, hot end is brass with copper end,
Has been a nice project.

How can I rotate pictures that are in my albums ?
|Thread: Southworth engines / pumps|
Ordered a set of castings from Blackgates yesterday for the 12" vertical boiler feed pump...................
Arrived today ! ................ safe and sound................within 24 hours of ordering......................
That's what I call service !
Nice people to deal with as well .
Very impressed !!!
Does anyone know if Southworth engine and feed pump castings are still in business ?
I'm interested in the 12" vertical feed pump if anyone has got a set of castings that are unwanted.

I've just finished an Alyn foundry Gardner, and I've got a set of castings in stock for their Robinson 1/2 size "X" type gas engine but I fancied something larger,
The 1/3 size "Galloway" looks favorite at the moment.
Does any know of a supplier of any castings for a larger scale hit and miss I/C engine ?
I have tried to contact cooper tool and machine co in Alabama USA, who sold castings for a large ish "Gray" hit and miss engine, but my e-mail is returned as unknown,
possibly they are now out of business ,
Are there any others ?
|Thread: ROHM DRILL CHUCK SPARES|

|Thread: Which scale to build|
I totally agree with the view " build as large as you can", but don't be under any illusion, large models can cost a lot of money to build, castings, boiler, boiler fittings, rubber tyres , also tools etc that you havn't already got,
Also large models need large machine tools to build them,
I built the 6" Burrell in the picture, It took me 7 years and was a hell of a lot of work, but all worth it when finished,
I cut the straight gears, the largest was 21", the flywheel was 25" , the final drive gear and winch drum probably weighed around 300 Lb before any machining was done,
The castings were from EKP Supplies in Devon, They do a 6" an 8" and I think some 3" scales as well, have a look at their website.
Any help I can give you, please send me a private message, I am in Bucks,
Good luck with whatever you decide to build,

|Thread: WHERE ARE THE SHAPER USERS ?|
Not a £10 note........... just a cut up scribbling pad with some numbers on !
Here are some pictures of my Edgwick 20" shaper, machining some parts of a Stuart 6a compound marine engine that I'm building.
Nice job Colin, how old do you think the "Corbett" shaper is ?, it looks a useful machine.
I picked up this Invicta 6 MR , 24 inch stroke shaper last year.
|Thread: DRUMMOND B TYPE ?|
From Tony's website it appears to be about 1907...........................
Thanks for that Bazyle, it's interesting to find out it's so old.
