Who are these strange fellows?
- Manbench Industries
- 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" !

Richard Trevithicks 'Catch Me Who Can?' Part III
A further update of the progress made on this project sees a trial assembly of the engine components into the frames. The engine is held roughly in place with a couple of bolts and some crudely shaped brass supports. These will need milling to a more attractive shape and the long bolt replaced with a proper spacer when some more time can be spared for the project. However, I wanted to see it going first, so, I just had to put the airline on it. As can be seen below...IT RUNS!
