i think the 2inch bearing housings are part of the next kit, the material is all cut up ready for me to start working on them. i'll get more details as i get further into it.

yeah the boilers look too short to be showmans. boilers are in constant production, im not sure whats due next, i'll see if i can find out. it may even be that they are started already. ???

hello, i spoke to Harry the boiler maker and he said that as he has not made showman's boilers for a while then they would probably be next. maybe our production manager could confirm this ???. the plate-work and barrel will already be done, it will just be a case of assembly and final machining.

OK, this weeks "stuff".
we finished the two steering kits and out they went...

also finished the 6inch foden crank-shaft weights...

New year, new thread... January, March 2016 (no February) - Page 2 190316003_zpsuwe8tvqg

the main priority now is the 2inch Burrell kit 10 cheers and the 4inch foden crankshaft kit. 21 i think Question

these are the parts for the 2inch 2nd shaft tube...

no problem. the boilers can be a bit of a bottle neck because of the work involved. we usually carry on sending other kits until they are ready so you do tend to end up with a lot of parts and nothing to bolt them to scratch
