This is the first
« on: November 23, 2021, 09:07:16 PM »
Hi all, this is the first model engineering forum I have joined so quick introduction, retired engineer with a small workshop that I have rebuilt when my Myford S7 fell through the floor of the shed I had before, I also have a small mill.
Since retirement I have finished a Stuart D10 I started 20 years ago, a Stuart boiler feed pump then did a Stuart triple an engine I have always wanted to make, currently working on a Stuart no1 centrifugal pump, look forward to reading about the builds taking place.

Very good job on that triple! Those are a difficult engine. Double is great too.

Hi Andy,
Welcome to the forum.  Beautiful work on the engines there!
We'd love to see some pics of your shop too if you have any to share.  There's a sub-forum called "My Workshop" where people tend to post pictures of their shop.  Give us a virtual tour! :)

Welcome aboard!
Kim

Hi Andy, these are beautiful engines, might help to get me dragging the set of triple castings out somewhen later! ( Also Hampshire...)  Thanks for posting the pictures, Dave

Nice job on the tripples.

Is that some form of simpling valve you have on the right hand one to help it run better on air? Though I see from your FB video they both run well even the left hand one which looks standard, the condensers are a nice touch too.

Yes Jason itís a simpling valve not really needed they run fine on air, the mods I made to the valves makes all the difference and all cylinders do some work
