Practical Engineering


3" scale Foden Cylinder Block mounted on a wooden cradle to Aid marking out. The bore cores have tunned aluminium plugs in them so the centres can be been found and marked. The wooden craddle also has two mild steel plates screwed each side, so lines can be scribed to ensure the centre of the boiler can be obtained.

 The casting is glued to the craddle for a permanant fitting while marking out, then will be knocked off once ready for machining. The next job is to get to grips with the complex drawing and understand all the sectioning.
