I was stripping the sump off a "spares" Mk.10 and noticed what looked like Verdigris on the magneto housing, a quick rub with wire wool  showed this...


Villiers Mk10 Villie22


Just idle curiosity really, I wondered what it is made of?, definitely non-ferrous, my guess is Brass, .

I think more likely bronze, a bit more hard wearing, but I'm happy to be corrected. Interesting article here with info on Marston Road and Villiers Street Works.

Thanks for the link, the bit about the shot blast machines bought back memories of my time in the foundry, our machines had four 3 foot diameter shot wheels that blasted the castings as they went past on a conveyor, there were sacrificial 1" thick tough steel plates opposite the wheels and they had to replaced every 2-3 months!
