Tony Wadsworth models and tools

Here are 3 pieces of work by Tony, two models and a tool.

Titch, a 3 1/2" freelance designed by LSBC

Titch, a 3 1/2" freelance 0-4-0 designed by LSBC

"Titch" - A freelance 0-4-0 tank loco built by Tony as practice before starting the current project, which is a 3 1/2" gauge 4-6-2 "Britannia Class" locomotive. Titch is about 14 inches long, weighs 28 lbs and burns steam coal or anthracite. This little loco can pull a truck carrying an adult.

Stuart 10V with modifications

Stuart 10V  with reversing gear, oil pump and drain cocks

Three views of a Stuart Vertical Engine recently completed, apart from painting, by Tony. The model is six inches high and incorporates a mechanical oil pump, cylinder drain cock and regulator systems that are Tony's own design. The engine has been run on compressed air but not yet on live steam.

A dividing head for Tony's lathe

A view of the dividing head

Two views of a dividing head made by Tony for use on his lathe. Tony made all the components, apart from machining the worms and the teeth on the associated gears. The most demanding part of the project was drilling all the very accurately positioned holes in the three dividing plates, which is why it took over 300 hours to complete.

Tony also has a webpage here, which also features quite a lot of amature radio information.
