Who are these strange fellows?

Manbench Industries; Purveyors of general mayhem since 1994, a blog to follow the crazed, possibly deranged projects and emotive musings, of an undergraduate engineer, and an apprentice organ builder who have always felt they were born in the wrong age. Follow us as we, re-write history, learn lost skills, discover strange new worlds, break things, rant at things, mend things, make new things and generally find ways of passing the day instead of doing "proper work" !

Cylinder Boring...in a field...

At last years (2012) Great Dorset Steam Fair, this, most interesting display was seen. A railway preservation society (can't remember who) were demonstrating the re-boring of the cylinder on one of their locomotives (can't remember the locomotive either, but I think it was a 9F.) It was quite an impressive operation to be seen and showed some of the huge amount of work required to keep our industrial heritage in working order to the general public.

It was terribly boring. (And the "Pun of the Year" award goes to that!)

The Engineer.
