News and editorial

By David Carpenter

CORONAVIRUS CHALLENGE

Two weeks ago we suggested that If you don’t have a project on the go, why not take a look at the Ventilator, you know, those things we don’t have enough of, sentencing the elderly and infirmed to a bleak outlook. Just like the missing testing kits. It was bound to be left to the engineers to sort this out.

Can we do even better? By ‘we’ we mean the 25,000+ a month readers of MEWS.

Could you design a ventilator for building in the home workshop? Perhaps you could come up with something better than what is available now.

Do your research. Get your thinking caps on. Produce a design which maybe for a one-off home workshop project or one that could be mass produced.

Ventilators have come a long way since the ‘iron lung’. Can someone take it a step further and produce something costing little, which can kept in a small case?

A week after our suggestion we hear that some  people are doing just that, like this one from Spain.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/technology-52072479/a-3d-printed-ventilator-designed-for-spain-s-coronavirus-patients

We understand that drawings will be made available.



VENTILATOR DRAWINGS AVAILABLE HERE

Meanwhile, drawings for an emergency ventilator design are available now.


DONCASTER

Inevitably, the Doncaster show scheduled for May 8 to 10 has been cancelled. The next National Model Engineering and Modelling Exhibition will be in May 2021.

So, extra time to finish off your project and, perhaps, take a prestigious award. 


MIDGET GAS ENGINE BUILD

Jason Ballamy recreates an attractive engine from the 1930s known as the Midget using CAD/CAM instead of castings..



‘SCRAPBOX’ MILL ENGINE

Julius re-visits a  mill engine design that can be made without castings..

.


USS MISSOURI

Our Model of the Week is a mighty model in Meccano of the battleship Missouri.


.

MILLSTONE DRESSER

Something from the archive that will appeal to the modeller looking for an unusual, but important, subject for the next project.



MIST COOLANT

Bruno Taylor from the Bristol club describes his mist coolant setup which cost only a few pounds to make.


.

MYFORD CHUCKS

Chronos has a new range of lathe chucks, ready to fit to ML7 series lathes. Various sizes, three and four-jaw self centring and four jaw independent are all available.


.




IT’S AN ILL WIND

With club meetings and events being cancelled, it’s a disappointing time for model engineers. Maybe not all bad news, tho. Lots of other activities are also at a temporary halt, leaving time for self-isolation. And where better to spend that isolation than in the workshop? Time to make real progress with that project, especially now that Spring is almost here.

Also a good time to stock up. On-line mail order for our supplies remains working, unlike the impossible business of trying to buy food online.



NEW BOOK FROM CAMDEN

Camden has re-published Don Ashton’s great work on locomotive valve gear.   It is available in printed and digital forms. Available here.

.

ME PLANS SERVICE

The plans service which used  to be run by Model Engineer magazine is now back in service with Sarik  Hobbies. Take a trip to https://www.sarikhobbies.com/model-engineer-builder/
