The construction of the model engine will have been serialized in one of the popular model engineering magazines. What a tumultuous year, and who would dare predict the future? Perhaps “Life on the Hill” and “Terminal Eurocrasy” will both soon change for the better – we’ve certainly got our fingers crossed! Whilst we’re all waiting however what better a distraction than the workshop? We defy you to worry about NATO whilst turning a 4-cylinder crankshaft or milling dovetails. Having enjoyed healthy exports for many years, Hemingway has recently crossed a threshold in that our next order is now more than likely to arrive from outside of the UK.
If you’re ordering from outside the UK, please don’t miss out on this silver lining! The Seal Major – a Perfect “IC” Project? Seal Major has been built to a very high standard. Michael has also included a vertical distributor, water pump and radiator to his own design. Watch the unsilenced engine later in the video – a lovely crisp crackle! This engine is a 30cc version of Westbury’s “Seal”. Designed in 1950, the Seal Major has been used in both 4ft – 6ft boats and 5″ scale locomotives for the past 66 years.
It presents the constructor with a challenging yet “do-able” project – you’ll find plenty to learn along the way and huge satisfaction when it finally fires! While the ordinary hacksaw is an indispensible hand tool for all metal workers, the manual labour involved in operating it is tedious when a great deal of cutting has to be done on large metal sections. To earn its keep however, a powered hacksaw must be man-enough for the job but also small enough to avoid dominating the workshop. Westbury devoted a great deal of thought and experimentation to this design which is surely the world’s most compact.
