This issue is full to the brim with the informative and enjoyable articles that readers expect to see when they open the cover of The Old Machinery Magazine.
Never wanting to disappoint our readers, we suggest they find a comfortable chair and dive straight into a story from one of our subscribers about his amazing collection of blow torches including some quite rare items.
Or maybe reading about a restoration or two goes down well with your morning cuppa – issue #210 brings you the stories of three very different tractor restorations – a 1932 Hart-Parr, a Massey Harris 20K, and a David Brown 30C which are now, thanks to their owners, back out there either enjoying some light work on the farm or parading around a rally showground.
Our Lives of the Engineers series covers the Victorian firm of Wright & Edwards and after that article, read about the history of the very rare and unique Hardy & Padmore “Lowne” Patent Atmospheric/Vacuum engine which was designed to be a “marvel of simplicity, elegance, cheapness, and power combined”.
Also covered in this issue is the “reawakening” of a 6hp Witte headless engine that had been asleep for close to 20 years.
And readers can round off their enjoyment of issue #210 with a bird’s eye view of a Booth & Sons steam gantry crane.
All of these articles come with the regular segments of News & Letters, Helps and IDs from our readers and everyone’s favourite section, the Classifieds where readers might just find that tractor, engine, or part that they’ve been searching for.
