I have a Maximat 7, Emco FB-2 milling and drilling combination machine, and a Cowells lathe. The Maximat and FB-2 were purchased new, still run good after many years of use. The Cowells is 20 years old.

I made several Stuart stationary engines, a duplex pump and a boiler. Worked on two 3 1/2 grade locomotives.

Currently retired. Now into garden trains.

I previously subscribed to Model Engineer for many years.

Hello David,

I made the Stuart No. 9 engine.
The video starts with two photos showing the set up to for boring the bedplate on the FB-2 mill. The third photo is boring the cylinder on Maximat 7 using the Arrand between centres boring bar. Then I have a photo of the finished bedplate and cylinder.
The finished engine is shown running on compressed air.
