Because i was poor i only had a TRIX set and when mother did the Hoovering and there was a clattering sound going up the tube i got a clout round the ear as that was one less nut or bolt gone. How i envied the posh kids !!! Also no bright colours and dad on the box had a cigaret not a pipe, but you did get extra holes!!!

I've not used the e-bay global shipping but when I have bought other casting sets from the US of similar weight usually works out about $150 via US postal as international is priced by weight not what can be crammed into a standard box for a fixed fee. Plus any VAT an post office fee of 8 this end.

Don't know who e-bay use but may be higher plus whatever they take. Weight and size put this engine within a single GSP.

Would not stop me, that's a decent sort of size and cast in iron not soft GM. Almost worth contacting teh guy to see if he would do a deal in return for drawing up a set of plans, looks like he may well be casting them himself with a name like "oilburner"

Only says "May Not" ship to UK, there is a note to say that overseas buyers need to get the two part customs listing.

Jo Do you know what has happened to the Beggs engine as it is no longer listed on Cotswold's site? Maybe not a good seller or too costly to cast with the cores needed for the bottle

at a guess that is due to the weight of the castings being heaver than that program allows ( I have been refused a global ship on a heavy part but if I had ordered the inner and outer as two orders it would have been ok but the compleat assembled no )
but you would then be stung for two import dues and there commission twice that would make them in excess of 700 dollars approx

just a thought

I am up to date again Roger, keep at it :)

I found the procedure for forming the injector needle quite interesting.

I have the long term goal of building an engine which could drive my hand powered coffee grinder :)

I tried contacting him but the UK Fleabay does not recognise the Ebay number and Ebay.com won't let me log in  :disappointed: So I would need to set up another account.

I don't know what happened to the Costwold engine. Originally it had been about 200. Anthony would not be worried as he was paid for designing engines for them rather than on how many kits they sell.

Yes a significant omission but not as annoying as them not shipping over the pond  :rant:
