Introduction.
« on: June 20, 2022, 09:52:02 AM »
Good Evening from Brisbane, Queensland. Australia.
Decided to join as model engines have tweaked my interest. Im a retired fitter and turner with 40 yrs machining experience.
Was given a Stuart Turner Triple Expansion Steam engine to machine so set up a small workshop to be able to do it. 18mths later returned in to the owner ( completed ) Am in the process of maching a Tiny I.C Engine but looking for more challenges.
Im not very talkative on sites like this but realy interested in other peoples challenges and achievements.
Regards Trev

Hi Trev, welcome to the forum for another Aussie.  Itís a friendly place here, so try not to be too shy.  We would all love to see pictures of what you have done.

 :hi: Trev,

If you can make a Stuart Triple you shouldn't find many model engines too challenging. However as someone who has been triened as to how to do things you may find some of our amateur techniques amusing  ;)
