Issue Cover

Model Engineer  |  4522  


Looking for an idea for an Engineer’s Day out? Have you ever visited the Kirkaldy Testing Museum? This little known museum is housed within the original location of a series of fascinating mechanical devices used for the testing of materials as the industrial revolution began to sweep the nation. Roger Backhouse describes what he saw during a recent visit by the SMEE.
Ben Crowdy explains the role of piston rings and describes a useful truing jig.
Have you got a few minutes to make a useful workshop addition? Stewart Hart makes a very simple foot for a depth gauge, thereby freeing up your other hand! In our cover feature this time, Barry Potter, a professional model engineer of many years’ standing, describes the lowly goods engines that he grew very fond of after building a number for customers and for his own pleasure. As will all Barry’s work, the inspirational detailing of the engines is worth studying.
Gallery returns with something a little different - and possibly an idea for Christmas presents for little ones.
Bantam Cock comes to an end as LBSC completes the engine and takes it for its first run.
Chris Gunn drill lots of holes in the cylinder casting of the Garrett 4CD and Ashley Best completes his beautiful street scene - just in time before the next tram comes along!

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. Reviewed May 30, 2020
