Magazine Description

In this issue

Chris Gunn attaches the Garrett ‘G’ to the front of his 6 inch scale 4CD tractor, giving it, at last, an identity. John Arrowsmith takes a trip to Premier Patterns in Birmingham to see the polystyrene ‘use once’ cylinder patterns made for the GWR 4709 Night Owl new-build project. Geoff Spedding builds the Murdock oscillating engine from castings supplied by the Myers Engine Works in Ohio, USA. James Wells, our Man in a Shed, casts his mind back to the Suez crisis of 1956 and remembers the ingenuity shown by many in the face of petrol rationing. Doug Hewson makes the grate and ashpan for his improved 5 inch GWR pannier tank and insists that you should seriously consider fitting a damper to the ashpan. Luker asks why do you spend money buying metal for your projects when it can so easily be found just lying around. Gerald Martyn concludes his series on casting non-ferrous metals by considering what can go wrong and suggesting what you can do to fix it. Rodney Oldfield makes the cranks and connecting rods for the Middleton double beam engine. Roger Backhouse spends an ‘Engineer’s Day Out’ at the Milestones Museum, Basingstoke.
