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" !

Collecting a Marshall Portable

A Happy New Year from MBI!

Last Saturday (28th) was spent collecting a very large Marshall Portable engine. A friend of mine had heard that she was going to be up for sale, and decided to buy her for his collection. She is a 24nhp Duplex engine, and she is big!

The plan is, after restoration, to install her with the owners rack saw bench and build a shed around the set-up. As restoration progresses, I shall post further updates.

Here she is as found...

On the low-loader...

Safely in her new home..

A big old firebox!

The Engineer.
