Arrived Thursday and set up with the MEM group.  Met some new folks and got to associate some faces with names.  I heard that attendance was up from last year, despite the weather.
Photos of the MEM group.

Hi Steve

In the text he says to use copper, brass or gun metal




Which must be bent after fitting.

I don't fancy trying to bend gun metal or brass so copper it is

Cheers

It does seem that the area to the left hand end gets bigger each year and even more so this year with the Steam Punk Area and the isles get wider.

I tend to view it that if the cost of the ticket equates to the postage on a few items I could have ordered then I'm not really out of pocket, think I bought from 8 separate stalls so certainly covered postage costs. I had 19 items on my list and got 17, did not really expect to get the other two as one was metric stock and the other I think only EKP sells.

Took me 1hr 20mins to drive across London and about 20-25mins longer getting home though the Scooby did not enjoy the 20mph limits.

Don't think I will be going to Alley Pally again either, as you say Jo, it's not the easiest place to get to, for us it means a drive up to Farnham to daughters, then a train to London, Tube across London, bus to site and back, a time consuming and not inexpensive journey.  To be disappointed when I got there would be too much.  Sad to see no Bristol show this year but often in France then anyway, but I liked that show.  Midlands show also involves a drive, to daughters in Gloucester.  But at least from there it's not an onerous drive to the show and one can then park right outside the hall, a major bonus for me!

PS I know one can park at Allly Pally but who on earth wants to drive in London these days?

Looking good. I understand where you are coming from with the drilled and tapped holes for fittings. Hope you can bend the copper tube ok with the end fitting on.

I know what you mean Jo, this is my last year as well. It's been about four years since I last attended and a real marked down turn in content (in my opinion). Having said I did come away with a couple of bits and pieces but nothing that I could not phone them up for.

Thanks to everyone for all the positive comments. Now, I need to make a start on my next IC project - probably a Chenery V twin.

Regards,

Clive

Hi

Thanks Chris, Admiral, Kim and Thomas  :ThumbsUp:

Got the steam T made up. Its as per the plans the photos should provide enough info























One thing to note though. The oil check valve that will screw into the front is tapped 5/16" x 40. They are cheap enough to just buy one and save me the trouble of making it but I cannot find a supplier that has one in 5/16 x 40 they all seem to be 1/4 x 40. Had I checked that first I would have tapped the hole 1/4 x 40

Cheers

Rich
