Its a vertical boring machine, one of a few machines that we got from the old railway works at Swindon after they closed back in 1986.

Done a bit on the Amanco today, now that the new flywheel is on i masked up all the bits i didn't want painted (for the time being) and applied the first coats of gloss, still waiting for the fuel jets for the carb, and when it does run it'll be top coat painted, still lots to do though, tomorrow it's time for the trolley!

Hi all, It's been a while since the last update but things have been ticking along slowly, today saw the return of the carb complete with it's new needle valves and seats, the originals were missing !
Also the ignition coil now sports another magnet the original was as good as trying to pick up a nail with a corkscrew!
So,i now have to plumb it all up and by the end of the week who knows !
Cheers for now , Karl.
