New member from Australia
« on: July 23, 2022, 07:21:58 AM »
Greeting all.
Thanks for allowing me entry to the community. I have a long association with steam as both my father and grandfather were steam locomotive drivers here in Western Australia. For this reason my modelling involves only steam. I'm currently working on a model of a Clark Chapman ships deck winch, approximately 1:10 scale and although it is not an exact replica it is a very close representation of the original.
I have also just completed the refurbishment of my Father's Wade No1 lathe, made around 1921 in Hove, Sussex, England and I will post some info and a photo of it on the wade lathe page.
Looking forward to involvement in the Community.
