From a purely legal point of view, I could leave it as it is. Ceramic fuses can still be bought. But Per is right with his advice to use circuit breakers and fault current switches. But the frequency converters on the lathe and drill must not have a fault current switch. The sockets do.

Sure hope it doesn't rain tomorrow for the race.

Rain is about the only thing that makes it an exciting race these days :LittleDevil:
I think that partial first lap should have been adequately "exciting" for you .   Not what I like to see.

Oddball / old elevator
« Last post by Michael S. on July 06, 2022, 01:36:57 PM »
Hello,

Today my boss sent me to service the ventilation systems in our city museum. In the attic there is a room for the elevator machine. The museum was built in 1908 and the machine probably in the 1930's. In any case, still fully operational. Old electric motors with bronze bearings and oil chambers! From Otis. Must have been good quality.
In the exhibition there was a model of a steam engine and the first steamboat built in Magdeburg from 1839

Hi Jason, you wasted most of my afternoon perusing that link - fascinating, thank you.

Thanks, Jo, that one really is an early one.

Based on that and on the information on the site from Jasonís link, mine looks like perhaps nearer 1933 than yours, still not all the 10V features but including some, like the eccentric strap and the steam chest cover and inlet location.  Amazing the little things that are only seen in a quest like this.

Thank you both.

I know as a fact from years of reading newspapers that the Sopworth Camel looks like a doghouse.
Only the one hangered in Charlie Brown's back yard!   :Lol:

Brian,
Good to see the progress you are making. We've been on vacation and this is the first time in half a week I've been on the forum. I have to say that I like the straight cylinders better.

Hi
The early catalog from a local dealer had a picture of stuart turner no 10  with a turned trunk guide    but the 5a with separate castings for each side similar to the no 1  .

it looks like you had a good display its pity not big crowds.

wow, a huge amount of work to do, but this beautiful collection of tooling deserves it !
I agree that the fuse box is no longer up to standard, but has to be left as a decoration with the old machine tools  !

Really it's a vertical No10 it only became a 10V some time after they went for the A frame/trunk guide. Produced for at least 12 years http://stuartturnersteam.com/Vertical/10V/10V.html

They most likely added the V to save confusion between the vertical and horizontal as both were originally just sold as No10s http://stuartturnersteam.com/Horizon/10H/10H.html
