The Steam Tee looks great Rich!

I found a couple of 5/16"-40 taps on Amazon:

Several of them are Prime and you could have it in 2 days :)

Good luck!

HI All, I went on Saturday to the show and it was really packed and very difficult  to get to the trade stands with so many back packs !! I bought a few things and spoke to quite a few old friends .....I went with the Norridge  society and years ago the 52 seater bus was full but recently it only has about 26 ..... Yes there does seems to be more space although all the seating chairs and tables were well attended !! I will continue to go to the shows as in our club the Coach trip is being subsidised by the clubs pecunary directive. What i did see ,was, that the quantity of models on display was superseded by the size of the exhibits .Jo, I did miss the Bridport Foundry stand that features in one of your photos, they had a lot of castings available of various stationary models and if i had seen it i would have purchased a few of there flywheels for future projects...I did however buy some part machined flywheels from the RDG stand at quite reasonable prices i thought, and was quite surprised to see them there !!

Fair point Rich, it just caught my eye the bend in the copper tube shown on the smokebox drawing.

Looks like 7 orders from just the MEM folks so far. At something like $.50 per plan not a bad resource to have or point newbies to. Wonder how many of these engines have been build over the years  :thinking:

Registered yesterday, but couldn't seem to get logged on. No problem logging on and ordering this morning. I did notice that, after clicking the
"PayPal" button, I had to scroll down and click the "Complete Order" button in order to get transferred to PayPal.
