Items For Sale

If any club members have anything they would like to sell, you can advertise it here.

You will need to supply some photographs and a full description of the item and how much you would like for it.


I have an air compressor for sale, it is not silenced, which I bought
new eight or nine years ago and has only been used occasionally to
test model steam engines. So it's clean and in good working order.

You will need a 1/2" male connector for your airline. Good for spray
painting, etc.

Tech details:
Model:  ACJ6
Pressure: 115 psi, 8Kg cm2,800kpa
Power:  1 HP
Capacity:  116 cl/min,  4.1 CFM
Tank:  6 litres,  1.6 gal
Date:  2012
Mfg no.  12110031


Price  £50.

You can collect (SW London) or I can deliver on my next boiler testing trip. My reason for selling is because I have upgraded to a silenced one, due to domestic complaints - my workshop is indoors.

An armourer acquaintance of mine bought a number of second hand micrometers hoping to extract the mechanisms and build it them into a tool connected with making parts for rifles. It turned out to be very hard to dismantle these devices so my friend is pursuing a new tack, making these redundant.
All imperial, some are without ratchets, some read 10ths, all Mitutoyo except the depth gauge, all with carbide anvils, the depth mic is a M&W 1 inch with ratchet. £5 each, obviously used, all engraved, but all accurate and working.

Interested in one or more?

Jeff Carter is helping a friend by disposing of a small steam engine. The engine has run on air and the bore is half an inch. There are no marks or names on the engine parts. The sight glass is 85 mm including fittings and the gauge is 19mm in diameter.

It appears never to have been used and the bag it is in has the name; F. S. Dinnis, Isle of Wight on it.

The owner has simply asked for the recipient to make a donation to the RNLI.

Anyone interested contact Jeff Carter.
