Can somebody tell me where I can find or buy the articles written by Gordon Smith? Collecting stuff to start building steam engines. Recently BlondiHacks had trouble with commercial safety valves. I starting looking into this and Smith's name came up over and over again. I can't find information on line at all other then his designs are supposed to be really good.

Hi Polly models sell the springs for them and also a drawing for the particular one you are making . I think the drawing was 50pence a couple of years ago. I've made several, they work well but I wouldn't describe them as very Pop.

BlondiHacks had problems because she didn't have a glue as to the bore she needed not because the valves were faulty just to small

Hi Charles, Mr Smith's safety valve designs were published in Engineering in Miniature magazine in Feb, Mar and Apr 2001. If you can't find back copies of these issues please PM me.
