Magazine Description

In this issue

"Geoff Theasby supplies his usual, often quirky, always entertaining round-up of the news from model engineering societies all around the world. Luker describes the rods and eccentric straps for Wahya, his 5 inch gauge American outline locomotive. Stewart Hart makes the piston assembly for his grasshopper haulage engine. Helmut Heitzinger adds paint and a wooden base to complete his Musgrave non-dead centre compound steam engine. Mark Smithers marks the 150th anniversary of the ‘Quarry Hunslet’ locomotive. John Arrowsmith makes the journey to West London to visit the Ickenham and District Society of Model Engineers. Hotspur machines the dome of his 7¼ inch gauge Beattie well tank, Wenford. Rhys Owen explains the workings of the Westinghouse air brake. Robert Hobbs adds paint to his 3½ inch gauge GWR County of Devon locomotive. Ron Fitzgerald looks at the way John Wilkinson was able to adapt his cannon boring machine to the manufacture of more accurate cylinders for Watt’s steam engine. Alex Dupre continues his description of a set of dividing attachments for the lathe with a three-in-one mandrel backstop assembly. John Merrett builds a very fine 5 inch gauge model of Brighton, one of Stroudley’s very pretty ‘Terrier’ tank locomotives."
