Hi, I found your details via the Mamod / steam website, I have a few Mamod items which may be of interest to some forum meters but to be honest I dont have time to become a full member to post, is there any other way to post?

Steam engine stationary, flywheel / axle, grinder accessory, polisher accessory.

I would rather try enthusiast before eBay ! Thanks

Hey Sandy,Thanks for your help getting me started on the forum.Just thought I'd check out your Steam Shack and have a look at some of your collection. I am a retired carpenter in the US and have been a model steam addict since 1999 when I got my first Wilesco.I still do woodworking and am blessed that I have a shop I can work in.But you know the biggest reason I like model steam? NO SAWDUST! Thanks for all your contributions to this most fascinating hobby! David Ahtes

Hey sandy,,how are you?? this is doug from the steam forum...What i need to know from you is,,,my grandson wants to show one of your dvd's to his second grade class... The reason i ask is,,i don't want to get in trouble for showing your dvd without your consent...It would only be shown at his school and in class... no one will be taking it and making any copies..I told his teacher i would check with you first,,and that she can not let it leave the class room...He wants to show his friends,,and i will be there running a engine on air for them to watch....Thank you for your time......doug....

I?m working on a story about the Jensen Steam Engine Co. ? visiting the shop next week ? and wanted to talk to a little about small engines. Who buys them and why? What?s the attraction? Are there collector clubs? Would we be surprised by some of the folks in this hobby?

If you can?t answer , maybe you know someone who could?

I?d appreciate any help.

Hi Sandy,
I have just found your excellent website and would like to ask if there is anywhere that I can get a copy of an instruction/plan diagram manual for a Bowman M122 steam engine. The engine in question was my fathers and has been in an attic for many years, It needs a lot of cleaning and perhaps the odd new part, hence, the fact that I would like some technical info about it.
If you could point me in the general direction for finding this info, I would be very grateful.

Regards Colin
