News and editorial

By David Carpenter


WARCO OPEN DAY SEPT 7

The Warco Open Day will take place Saturday 7th September 9am - 1pm.The range of new products will be on display, with plenty of show only discounts. There will also be an entire barn full of second hand machinery and used tools on offer.

The event is always good way to find a bargain, see machines you're looking to buy in the flesh and find special offers on Warco products. 

With on site catering. Not to be missed.


NEW COURSES

Bournemouth & Dist SME is looking to start new courses in September.

• an Elementary Lathe Course (to be followed by an Intermediate Course);

• an Elementary Milling Course.

If you want to take this opportunity to build your workshop skills, contact David Delaney as soon as possible, indicating which course(s) you would like to do and your preferred times - or times which would not be possible for you.  Although previous sessions have generally been in the evening, other times might be possible.

If you have never learned how to use a lathe or milling machine, or if you want to develop your skills, here is a great opportunity.


LBSCR K CLASS

Our Model of the Week is a Billinton’s  K class Mogul of the LB&SCR exhibited by the 10.25” Gauge Society at last year’s Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition.



MURDOCH’S 1786 STEAM CARRIAGE

Latest from Julius is the historic steam carriage from 1786 designed by William Murdoch, the first in Britain but never patented.


THE CELEREMANE

Our delve into the archive this week takes us back 150 years and a report in The Engineer about an extraordinary velocipede powered by four seated ‘rowers’. Unusual potential modelling subject.


TOBY REVISITED

We look back at Steve Eaton’s wonderful design for a beginner’s locomotive, with improved reproduction of drawings published previously. Concludes this week.


MORE NEW TOOLING

More tempting summer additions to supplies from Chronos and Warco, including an impressive machine vice and dial indicators with a magnetic back.




MIDLANDS SHOW PREP

It’s not too early to start thinking about the Midlands exhibition in the autumn. Dozens of clubs and traders have already signed up. Time now to get applications in for the competition and display entries.


ME PLANS SERVICE

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