  1. all sounds good... I hate seeing something like this going outside the family.... maybe they all moved down here after the war
  2. I like it all started with a magazine for a gun
  3. great thread...great fab skills
  4. Well I assume it's UK as the address is to a Mr E.W. McDermid (I think) at Prestwick Ayrshire... can't read the street. Anyone got any contacts in that area that might be able to find relatives?
  5. I wonder if vapour degreasing would clean the entrapped oil out. Best cleaning system ever made. Normally found in RAAF (RAF) NDI labs. The original chemical is banned but I believe they use a replacement.
  6. ok finally went past this place and was open.... Was amazed to see the Dorchester. Some bits for sale in the rust pile I worked on both the rotary wing displaysand in my youth...so brought back a lot of memories
  7. I saw the Dorchester in Merredin today. The owner has passed away and is heading to the east coast after being bought by another collector for a tidy sum
  8. I took some close up of the markings as perhaps the gunner guys might be interested
  9. I just saw this on Facebook, wondered about the date etc etc
  10. I just got back to the big city......I'll dig the book up tomorrow. I remember at trade school we used to have to mark it out with presets as couldn' scrap aircraft tubing
  11. Those small little engineer books used to state mandrel radius and also offsets depending on thickness. I have one of those books at home but I am in the middle of a desert at the moment. But as you are leaning towards there must be someone who can bend it up exactly the way you want..... maybe motorcycle restoration place..as smaller exhausts....just have to think of something that uses small bore piping... boat plumbing????
