Lovely to see. At shows there are plenty of stationary engines and even full size traction engines working machinery so very good to see. Anyone up for making a scale saw bench?

Lovely job you've done there Cool
I wondered about a running board mounted one as I've seen a few like that now but opted for a converted oldie worldie kettle that I ripped out the original electric element and wound in a copper coil and then run it via some rubber hose off the drain of the injector.
This gives us a good few pints of hot water every time in about 60 seconds for cuppas and washing up etc
Once the engines got 30psi on the clock in the morning we dont use the gas stove at all during the day Cool Best thing I've made for the engine.

Keith, nice to have the old cuppa after the beer outside the pub on the Saturday in Castledermot, looking forward to the rally, see you there.

LiveSteam, Thats a good idea connecting the kettle with a hose, the extra bonus for mounting on running board is i,m adding weight to the front end which is a good thing on the Agri.
Those small gas stoves have a hanger for the gas cylinders, was using about 3 cylinders for a 2 day rally

Yeah I need to either add some weight to mine or lose some from me Laughing trouble is all these dam real ale tents at the rallys Laughing

I know what you mean by getting through gas, we use to do a small propane bottle in the caravan every two to three rallys, since making the windermere we have just used our first bottle this season Shocked thats about 10 rallys I think.

LiveSteam- I,m in two minds at the moment to build a double seat with jockey wheels to take the weight off the engine

I've seen a few of the jocky wheel options, it does seem you have to get it just right and it can be a little un nerving having the seat move independantly of the engine I've heard.
I've ummmed and ahhhed about doing it, half of me would like to so the Mrs's can ride with me, but since aquiring a fairly close coupled side by side twin seat two wheel trailer I've moved away from it as this has proved far more useful as I can carry enough coal and water on it to do a moderate road run of several miles without the need to hook up the larger 4 wheel trailer and I can sit on it next to the Mrs's at the beer tent in reasonable comfort rather than perched on the engine.

Winter Project

Post  Mick1020 on Wed 23 Aug 2017, 7:39 pm

Hi to all, Just received set of wheels for my winter project of building a heavy haulage trailer, will start a build thread when i make a start on it.
It won't be as fast of a build as my timber trailer was due to being in a rush, but will make steady progress
