Model Making & Engineering
I spend hours making many different types of models and I find this is a great way of relaxing. It means I also spend time researching the fundamental design and operation of both the model and the tools used in making it. This blog is all about sharing that work. It’s also a constructive element where I end up with something that is rewarding for years to come.
Plans for single piston solenoid motor are now available. A simple design that makes a great starter project for someone with a new lathe.
Or the 5 cylinder rotary engine that has taken 100’s of hours to construct.
All of these models have their rewards in the process of making and as objects to look at.
My gallery page lists a large number of my models.
There’s always a lot of information and tables that are needed around the workshop and that are helpful in the field of general engineering and so I’ve started to list those under the heading Knowledge, a great place to start is with the Engineering page itself.
The workshop / man-cave is the den in which we can master a number of engineering techniques. This is my space for woodworking, metal working and sometimes just a place to sit and contemplate a design.
