I haven't done any videos or restorations of late, I blame daughter number 3 for that! But here is some of my last engine videos.

Petter AV1 best to go to 2m34s to see it run properly.

https://youtu.be/gy0T-R7lP0k?t=2m33s

lister SR, Dad bought this brand new and hasn't done much work at all since electricity came soon after.

https://youtu.be/jeiXPa5cE0U?t=1m44s

My old howard junior.

https://youtu.be/T2jYwxu3_74?t=5s

Awesomeness of the howard gem...

https://youtu.be/IUUTSOkzAR4?t=1m35s

The old Desoto just before we sold it, such a brilliant engine.

https://youtu.be/oKUmqk8d4LA?t=1m51s

Allen scythe that needed lots of work to get running and blades were blunt as.

https://youtu.be/5EDx94BhGQA?t=1m28s

And lastly the best engine ever built (feel free to disagree)

Hello all
It works for me Patrick.

Mr Sunshine: The ute is a 320. We have 2 of them laying about. This '64 table top (registered) and a '63 well back.

Karragullengine: post written by a true Howard die-hard I would have to say. That's a very nice, original series one Junior by the ways.

Cheers then
Scott

I have noticed all the politics in majority of the current threads and I thought it was about time to give this thread another bump. Here is a video of one of my many cement mixers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOq8DrE2JMk still needs a bit of work but it is able to go out and do a days works as it is.

Hello all
We have the same cement mixer Nathan, but ours has an electric motor on it. Not so long ago (about 2005) the pump up tyre blew so the closest thing I had to fix it was a 12" (I think it was) flat belt pulley with an inch bore. It slipped straight on and no more flat tyres.
You've also reminded me about another one, with a Moffat Virtue V3, I brought a couple of years ago and need to pickup. Cheers for that

But anyways onto a bit of fun. Remember when your good old mum said....stop your whinging before I give you something to whinge about?
Well, for some reason that popped into my head in the last few days when my dearest said there's something wrong with the Singer (how do you type a french accent?) and she wanted another one.
So I did what any person in my position would do. I went to the shed and found one. I didn't actually find it, I knew it was there. But I did forget what sort of Singer it was. I remembered it as been one of those old black ones with the foot control or the speed control lever you push with your knee.
But I was wrong.
Anyways, she has another Singer to try out tonight. Hopefully I'll be still around tomorrow. But that's hoping a bit on my part I reckon.
So here is the Singer she can use now.
Cheers Scott
PS: I fixed hers. It was just the thread tension on the bottom bobbin.

Hello all.
Well my prank with my dearest backfired, and backfired badly. She wants the old Singer out at the farm now to do those small repairs without resorting to the big industrial sewing machine we have out there for fixing horse rugs and the like. Bugger, how do I get out of this one?

Anyways, back to engines for the time been.
You know how you see these videos of engines running, how many of you wonder....I wonder how long it took for that bugger to get that thing going?
Well here's another video of an engine running BUT I stop and restart it in the middle of the video just to show what extremes, and effort, I have to take to start an engine sometimes.
The engine is a bit unusual as well. It's a Barlow type D.

Cheers Scott
If you don't want to watch the whole lot skip to about 1.30 for the restart.

Hello all
Believe it or not Mr Sunshine, one of my number plates is GOR31. It's got a picture of Homer Simpson on it.

Here is a video of a few of our engines running at a charity fund raising day a local heavy horse person has every years to raise funds for the rescue helicopter.
Sorry about the wind noise. Couldn't do much about that.

Cheers Scott

Hello Nathan,
That is simply brilliant. I could watch steam stuff all day. It never seizes to amase me just how much work some heated up water will do.
Thanks for posting the video.

Cheers Scott

Also if anyone out there has some fittings for a Jacko boiler I would like the gauge glass mounts and I would also like a picture of an original grate. Thank you Scott good to hear I am not the only one mesmerized by the poetry in motion that is a steam engine.
Regards, Nathan

Hello Robert
Thanks for that. That's an engine I have never seen before. It has a very even beat hasn't it.

Cheers Scott

I'm going to have to get an unusual engine (for Australia) out and do a video this week-end. I have just the one in mind.

Here is one I had not started in a long time, My 1915 5hp Bartram Type AK. I fire it up every year or so and it always goes first try.

I also fired up my little Fairbanks-Morse Eclipse No.1 on the weekend. It doesn't always start first try but it does start eventually. This is the engine that started me in the hobby. My father bought it for me 36 years ago.
Patrick.

Got a steam engine running for the first in over 35 years at the Millicent museum the other day. The little air compressor couldn't keep up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29A75AGargY
If anyone has any more info on this type of tangey I would be interested. I am after an original spring adjuster for the governor and lubricator.
Regards, Nathan
