Magazine Description

In this issue

"Peter Russell saves the labour of jiggling the belts on his Warco VMC milling machine by adding a variable frequency speed control. Jon Freeman explains the thinking behind the bogie and chassis design for his ‘Brushless Brute’ 5 and 7¼ inch dual gauge petrol-electric locomotive. Les Phillips expands on the merits of the New South Wales railways C38 Pacific locomotive and why he was inspired to build two 5 inch gauge models of these impressive machines. Graham Sadler explains the process of scraping a flat surface as part of the exercise of truing up a lathe bed. Patrick Hendra explains how he runs his youngsters’ model engineering club at Eastleigh and how he maintains both the enthusiasm and safety of his pupils. Alan Barnes talks to Derek Finch about his first traction engine, built from a Steam Traction World kit. Roger Backhouse visits the UK’s largest electricity generating station. Michael Denman reports on the remodelling of the site at the Cardiff club, which involved a lot of earth moving. David Haythornthwaite tackles the connecting rod bearings for his beam engine. Mick Knights makes a neat dual oil and fuel tank for his quarter scale Bentley BR2 rotary aero engine."
