Well that's one reason to get it finished, needing the bench, maybe I should try that instead of having so many work mate benches where I can leave them on.
Great news you've managed to get the tank soldered back up and the tidy up is coming along well.

Keep up the great work Steve,

Stu.

cheers stu, hope to have an hour tonight if i can get this work i have to do today finished, lovely weather today and for the next few days - i am suprised how quick the paint has hardened, but i have a problem - embarasing Embarassed the crank handle i had the paint matched off is slightly differnt to the engine so some patches might have to wait - if the base looks bad when back together i might have to paint it again, problem is i am a bit color blind.

I love the "old iron bit on the new trolley Steve, looks very well and gives the idea of the past living there.

Wonderful combo, I am sure it will spice up the engine just so.

Regards, John.

Steve,

I love "old" and "modern old" if it's done right, and your trolley is perfect!
I seem to have this yearning for the looks of mideval times also as I have stored away a few hand wrought swords (made from old harrow tine blades) and chainmail dress items that I made from small keyrings. A horned helmet is next in my collection when the passion returns Very Happy Heavy hammered iron with brass or copper rims and pointy acorn nuts!

The strips of old plate are just right up my alley,
I'll think of something to make from that idea. Maybe a plate bordered, rough wooden back plate for my old Mahogany and heavy brass rudder wheel out of the old boat.

Cheers, John.

Steve, Nothing wrong with that!
I suppose it's about the only way you can stop from bumping the rails.
I like the pitted steel look very much, you just can't buy that! It's a thing of class to me the way that looks.

Regards, John.

Oh that sounds so good!

I have been wanting for one here but no room, and costs are prohibitive. The things I could do with that, sigh, but all is not lost, I'm madly planning and plotting for a new home and shop so I may retire and get busier than before lol.

I do save rusty old iron and lumps of old cast iron machine parts for replicating things or machining cylinders or flywheels for a small sterling engine (a loooooong time coming, but another love of mine.)
The places I go sometimes have ancient angle or round/ flat stock and bits of brass or bronze bushes that are reject and lay out in the yards rotting never having made the recycle box, and I do what I can to relieve them of their burdens of cleanup and storage, and always with permission so the pile grows! Plate I have not, and yours looks good with the wear and pitting.
I'll work on collecting some of that myself Very Happy

I believe I am going to be very busy in the retired future, making things up for the locals and being able to charge reasonably less than anywhere else (especially the under the table work on weekend breakdowns for the few mills we have round here). It'll keep me from getting old and useless, and help my engine habit at the same time.

Cheers mate, John.

I'd say you did well Steve, That'll do you for just about anything going, short of bending ocean liners and churchill tanks! Perfect small engine aid Very Happy
Makes me wonder the size of your shop Shocked I am confined to a yard full of snow and a bedroom wannabe machine shop, with most of the room taken by two 350 chevy engines that need finishing and dormant small shop machines.
Of course I am more or less just hobbying for now, but hope to gather my main shop gear in the next few years. bounce

Cheers, John.

Sounds like a nice set up you have Steve, have you a lathe as that's something I'd like but space won't allow it. Crying or Very sad
