Issue Cover

Model Engineer  |  4536  


Welcome to Model Engineer Issue 4536

The making of helical gears – or skew gears – has always been a recurring topic but Roderick Jenkins describes his approach to making gears for his Wyvern (E. T. Westbury) on his lathe. Be prepared for a little maths!

The Warrington club have designed and made a set of colour light signals for their Daresbury track extension. Duncan Webster describes the new system. Be prepared for some electronics!

Ron Wright returns with a look at the theory and practice of SU carburettors.
We bring you the Editor’s first report form the Doncaster Exhibition and an initial look at some of the award winners.

Jim Haslam completes his look at the effect of rake angle on the forces acting on a cutting tool; be prepared for some geometry!

George Punter’s Sunderson & Mills tractor engine takes on a recognisable form as he completes the crankcase castings.

The skeleton clock recovers from a disaster and Mariner, the two cylinder marine engine, gains a crosshead assembly.

Be prepared for some in-depth reading!

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.
