I won't bore you too much with the wood stuff -

Quit that! Without wood stuff...we wouldn't be doing what we're doing.

Looking great Arnold. I always enjoy reading your threads.

Agnes needs her own thread. Maybe in Engines in Showcase. Then all her pictures will be closer together for easier viewing.

I don't think they can do too much about that.  It gets very hot just there on the end of the valve stem.
Anyway just for information:-
Markham Grange Steam Museum is privately run and owned.  It relies upon donations and the goodwill of the few volunteers for its upkeep.  It steams once a week and attracts visitors worldwide. 
This is its web site address.   www.markhamgrangesteammuseum.co.uk

I agree !
But since the forum won't allow more than eight pictures it's a problem.
But I've sneaked another picture in. :-)

Just for Jo...

The forum software only lets you add 8 pictures in each post not the thread  ;)

In that case I must not be doing it right.
I've found that I can attach a single picture, but clicking on "more attachments" gets ignored !

I'll try again with this post.

No !  Its taken just the one picture...

And just look at the SIZE of your one picture - Six-hundred and odd Kb, whereas Alan's images (Test 1) are a much more reasonable 60~70 Kb, and he can attach several for far less 'cost' than your single image.

P.S. Try using Windross "Image Resizer".  It's free, simple and works!  (One of the few Windose things that fulfills those criteria.)

I deleted my tests so they wouldn't clutter up a good thread but what I found is that I can click on "Attachments", then either click on "More Attachments" ahead of time before browsing to my pictures or I can do it one at a time, i.e., browse to a picture, select "More Attachments" and browse another. Too large (in bytes) an individual image or too many bytes overall and I get various kinds of errors without my pictures getting posted. There MAY also be some condition that occurs if I get multiple posts in too fast but this may just be part of either too many attachments or some of the attachments being too big.
In every case I don't get Baron's condition where after he makes one attachment he can't select "More Attachments" so I'm still not sure what that's about. I didn't analyze the sizes in bytes of his pictures so there may be another situation that I just missed.

There is a size limit to the attachments, Arnold can tell us what it is.

 :offtopic:

But lets get this thread back on subject: Arnold over to you we are looking forward to seeing more progress  8)

Just to avoid any confusion, the photo in reply 439 is not "Agnes" by the way.

Thanks all who checked in  :)

Thank you for the photos Baron -  :headscratch: Don't know why you're having problems with the attachments though.  The forum is set to allow up to 8 attachments per individual post up to a total of 10 Megabytes for all eight, without an individual size restriction...  Check your PMs for my email address - then you can forward all the photos to me, and I'll put them up in a separate post like Alan suggested  :ThumbsUp:

Decorating or something more interesting  :mischief:
::) Certain things didn't work out, but OTOH there won't be redecoration needed now :LittleDevil:.  I'm finishing off a couple of work projects and hopefully getting back to a somewhat more human (or should that be humane?) work schedule.  I have to take some leave for a change - my leave days are maxed out...

Be careful what you wish for Zee...  I might just be tempted to do Elmer's #01 at some point and show all the gory detail.  Hmmm... Come to think of it, the #37 should also look stunning if done in a dark wood and brass/bronze combination and some fine detail added...  Any takers out there ?

Kind regards, Arnold

I've done the redecorating and I can tell you that doesn't work either  :-\

The best use of leave I have found is to provide more time in the workshop  :pinkelephant:
