Issue Cover

Model Engineer  |  No. 215 Vol. 4519  


"This issue on the cover we feature Kingov Trading Co. of Cardiff, who bought this canvas tilt
van bodied Sentinel in July 1914. It was one of the last waggons produced at Polmadie, Glasgow, before Sentinel production moved to Shrewsbury in 1915. And our editor Diane Carney marks 100 years of ‘The Sentinel’ works in Shrewsbury in her feature inside.

Also getting a mention on the front page, our story on Rosebud grates are described and tested by Bill Roebuck and Peter Langridge.

Our locomotive construction series, The Barclay Well Tanks of the Great War, by Terence Holland, continues.

And Frank Cruickshank builds an early ‘semi-diesel’ engine in 1:10 scale, the Allan Brother Lampless Oil Engine.

George Punter makes a detailed model of a Saunderson & Mills Tractor in 3in scale.

We bring you more on Mick Knights’ enlarged version of the popular Mastiff Plus internal combustion design by Len Mason.

In a couple of other projects well worth a look, Henry Wood completes the cab of Emma Victoria, while Graham Astbury designs a very easy to make knurling tool.

And last – though not least – novelty project from Stewart Hart brings us the Potty Finger Engine.

And all of our regulars:

SMOKE RINGS News, views and comment on the world of model engineering.
CLUB NEWS Geoff Theasby takes a look at what is happening in the clubs.
DIARY Forthcoming events.
POSTBAG Readers’ letters.

Model Engineer

It is a good magazine. I am old so not to interested in the modern cad/cam. Did the Cad for a living as a manager. I am interested in the old ways of doing model engineering. My dad was into making small 3.5" gauge locos. So I am versed in his ways. As he said you make the side plates with a hack saw, file, surface table & bench drill. No need to mill out anything. What milling you do can be done on the Lathe with a large vertical slide. Bit different to what I see. You need more to teach filing skills much more. Keeps this a cheaper hoby.
