Hi Keith, thanks for taking the time to video this comprehensive tutorial on the strip down repair and rebuild of this lovely Stuart 5A Engine I a well equipped workshop Inc. Milling machine, centre lathe and surface grinder. My workshop and measuring instruments are all metric! I've been in touch with Stuart models, they only produce plans imperial size. How feasible do you think it would be to build the engine converting sizes to metric as the build progresses? If the kit wasn't so expensive, (currently £7500) I'd just buy it and get cracking. Also, what steam plant would you recommend. Thank you Stuart York
Just checked Stuart’s website, £903+ VAT (£180)
obviously plus a hefty postage bill but that’s way short of £7500
where did you get the quote from?
