we have sent one of the new dynamos out to a customer for testing and feedback suggests that more development is needed. Ian has been tasked with getting this sorted next week. Dean is very aware and genuinely concerned about the situation. we will have more news some time next week.

a few photos from this week...

6inch foden front stub axles. the king pin hole has now been bored, not as simple as it looks as it runs at 91 degrees to the turned shaft !!!
just waiting for the 4th axis machine to be free so i can finish these...



and some 6inch front springs are formed, ready for heat treating...



for those people wondering about the new Lyka boilers. work is getting done on these. all the barrels are weld prepped...



and the drilled plates are having bushes welded in...



the laser cut parts for the showmans/road loco belly tank are in...



and im machining the fillets for these...



im also working on lubricator brackets...



and BU4 slide bars...



on the lathes, mark has moved on to the 6inch foden cylinder accessory kit. unfortunately there has been a delay with the cylinder block castings
due to a problem at the foundry, but at least the next kit will be ready when they finally arrive.

HP trunk guide glands are turned...



and HP covers are on now...
