"On the Cover - This month’s cover was taken during the restoration of a 1:8 scale Big Boy locomotive at the Rahmi M. Koç Museum in Turkey, with Mr Koç (to the right) and Bulent Bulgurlu. We take a look behind the scenes at the museum on page 16.. Looking after your Myford Super 7 Eric Clarke offers some sage advice for owners of these classic lathes. Workshop Storage We look at some of the different options for helping keep your workshop tidy and well organised. Beginners’ Workshop Geometer explains the procedure for marking work to make neat and accurate cuts in various materials. Setting Up a Workshop Hoist! John Leach recalls his approach to installing a hoist to help with heavier workshop tasks. The Magic File Cleaner Adrian Revill’s neat device will cast a cleaning spell over your clogged files. Model Engineers’ Workshop Data Book This month we have a centre pull-out with four pages on data on Metric threads. Stepperhead 2 Alan Jackson concludes his article on the further development of his prize winning lathe. A Lathe Clutch Brett Meacle makes a heavy duty clutch for his 9x20 lathe including ingenious use of a deep socket and advice on shrink fitting. Rotary Encoder DRO for a Lathe Tailstock In response to reader queries, Duncan Webster has written up his encoder-based DSRO design. Workshop Safety Some thoughts on keeping the most important part of your workshop safe – you! Chainsaw Rail Closing Tool Will Doggett felt that ‘hit it wiv an ‘ammer’ wasn’t the best approach to restoring splayed chainsaw bars so he came up with this adjustable roller tool to do the job. Make a Lantern Chuck Bernard Towers makes a traditional tool for holding small workpieces – especially useful for tiny screws. Plus all your regular favourites!"
