Stuart D10

Follow on from query about marine model steam engine:
I am about to try to build a Stuart D10 engine and will buy the
construction guide they publish. However I still feel totally ignorant
about model steam engines never having dealt with anything less than
500MW output and wonder if anyone can suggest good basic books along
the lines of "Steam engines for electrical engineers and other total
beginners" I have looked in library and tried google to save people
offering these suggestions.

You could also try ENGINEERING IN MINATURE. They did a series some time
ago. Was on the 10v not d10 but offered modifications and construction
data. Sory unable to give dates but think it was about 3 years ago

Re: Stuart D10

The best thing to do is to join your local SMEE, where you
will find an untold wealth of advice.

The standard book on building the V10 is a help, but it leaves
an awful lot unsaid. Having said that, you could always ask
for help in this NG.

I'd suggest, depending on where you are in your metalwork apprenticeship,
that you get a copy of Sparey's book on the lathe.

PS. When I used to work for the SW Region, Fawley had 500MW sets,
but Portishead where I was based had only 60MW.
