WEEK ENDING 
30 MARCH 2017

By David Carpenter

THIS WEEK


Our congratulations go to Cherry Hill for being given the prestigious Craftsman of the Year Award. Details here.



We have more of the super project from Julius de Waal. It is a Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies 4NHP traction engine dating from the early part of the 20th Century. This is to a larger scale than the 2” version described by John Haining in the 1970s. This week includes wheels and steering.


We also have more of the build description of the Worden tool and cutter grinder by Vince Cutajar from Malta. Vince often has his own way of doing things and is not phased when moving away from published instructions, and mostly in metric. The Worden is a simple machine, compared to some that are available to the home builder which can be complex to build and operate.


Our Model of the Week is an example of LBSC’s Hielan Lassie, the LNER A1 Pacific in rebuilt form, in 3.5” gauge.


We understand that there will be no Model Engineer Exhibition this year. It is now to be a biennial event with the next scheduled for 2018.


A model engineering and hobbies exhibition is being held on April 1 and 2 at the Michael Herbert Hall, South Street, Wilton, Near Salisbury SP2 0JS. This is a biannual exhibition with profits going to the local hospital. In addition to model exhibits, there will be trade stands, and refreshments will be available. Parking is free and there is disabled access. Admission is £4. More info here. And here



We also have news of lots of new tooling available from Warco.
