SCC Boilers, we are currently machining boiler barrels (hold ups on the cylinder casting has stopped us doing the barrel before now as its a major mating part) all the other boiler plates are in and machined ready for assembly and welding.

can't believe it's february allready !!!affraid

as most of this weeks photos relate to things already in this thread i decided to combine the february photos with the january ones.

after mark turned the smoke-box lip on the showmans boiler barrels it was time to get them on the 4th axis to drill and tap the mounting holes for the cylinder block etc, SCC barrels will go on straight after these...

got another interesting "something out of nothing" part coming up. using the same technique as the 2inch cylinder blocks, we cut the foden rear axelboxes out of a solid lump of steel !!! more on that soon.
also have another couple of photos of steve's steam cars, but i'll post these in the dedicated thread !! Very Happy

You will be getting your rear axle box and brake drums (drum castings arrived today and the axle box casting are imminent) this month, next month your boiler cradle and front axle.

I cant say just yet, I can say however that virtually all the metal parts are done, still waiting on outside supply of the wood for the roof, door frames and rear cab sides.
(once that gets here we still have some work to do on that)
when it arrives I can give you an estimate.

The 4inch foden spring slipper blocks and the 4inch foden rear Axel boxes are they part of kit 3?

Hi Phil i can answer that for him yes they are part of Kit 3, from experience you wont get a kit every month, sometimes you may get two in a month if they manage to get all the materials in time to make the parts,sometimes you might have to wait two months for a kit, ( i am in no way complaining as i am very happy with the service i get with the supply of kits), also from experience i found January to be a slow month for kits, i didn't receive my first one until the end of feb last year due to material delays

Hi Phil,

They are in Kit 3. I expect the axle boxes to be finished in the next week and the springs sent off for heat treatment by about Friday. Once these are back we should be in the position to despatch quite quickly (certainly by month end). Kits 4 and 5 shouldn't be far behind though.

Regards

Any ideas when we will be getting our next 6" Foden kit its been well over two months since our last kit and now we are at the three year mark I would be hoping to be in steam for this season but at the moment a new year day steam up is looking more likely, sorry to have a go but its getting hard to keep the enthusiasm going, I have been showing her for three years as a static display and its getting hard to keep optimistic on the finished date. I know it will be worth it in the end just wish it was sooner rather than later. Rant over. Sad
