Hi,

Just bought my first stationary engine, something to work on and have fun with.
A Lister D that I think is a 1930's model, but would like to know more.
I will post some details in the projects thread.

When I tell people you have bought a stationary engine, after asking what that is, they say "what are you going to actually use it for?".
Just the fun of owning it doesn't seem understandable to them Laughing

Regards,

Mark

Hi Mark and a warm welcome to another Antipodean.

Yes, had great difficulty explaining to a female friend of ours what was the use of an engine that couldn't move itself. Gave up in the end and poured her another G&T.  Very Happy

Thanks everyone, looking forward to it, likely to be a long slow project due to time (and skill) constraints !

Welcome along!

I find the best way around the 'don't understand' thing is to avoid talking to normal people as much as possible...

my simple head is telling me that trees use carbon dioxide. carbon monoxide probably makes trees glaze over Smile

For dating your engine contact Doreen Edgington at info@stationaryenginebooks.co.uk
