ok, here they are. 18 photos today and i also have a couple of videos to create, one will be of the customers at the Banbury show and one of a bit of wood machining Cool

so the main kits we are working on are the 6inch foden rear brakes, the showmans/roadloco kit 10 and the remaining lyka engine parts. I've also made a start on the wood for the wagon kits.

one quick job i needed to do was the machining of a batch of 6inch foden rear wheels...



the foden rear brake shoes are all done. the new fabricated shoes were a joy to machine and are a big improvement on the old cast ones...





with each model having four shoes, there were quite a few to get done...



these are the pins that the shoes rotate on...



and the rear band brake pin halfway through turning...



parking brake levers being welded together...



and the long brake activating rod having the levers taper reamed and pinned...

showmans/roadloco bearing housings are all done...







Lyka engine parts. cylinders covers...



and final ops on water pumps...





the first of the wood parts for the wagon. this is the spring limiting block. i've taken some video of this being cut. will try to get it edited soon...



no prizes for guessing whats happening in the welding bay... boilers. here you can see all the parts tacked into place ready for final welding...



and weld prep has started on the plates for the Lyka boilers. the plan is to drill plates for two full size test boilers before the whole batch is done...

Sorry for that extremely nerdy attempt at a joke. Pressing the [F5]-key reloads the page in your browser. Handy if you expect an update at any moment.
