Guildford Rally Update

Unassembled Comet 5

Collected the new 5" gauge Comet from the laser profilers last Friday. They cut the metal and fold it with a CNC press so all the parts fit nicely together. We do have to deburr the holes and the occasional tag where the laser lifts off the metal. This is the promised pile of sheet metal that has been deburred and checked and will be built up to test panel fit etc. The software we use does check panel fit and hole alignment but there is nothing quite like seeing the new loco in the metal for the first time!

Guildford Rally

Nearly time for the Guildford Rally (20/21st July). I have been laid up with Sciatica for last three weeks, so deadlines are looming to get customer orders completed. However we are determined to have something new to show at Guildford. So we shall bring the new 5" gauge Comet. Keep a watch on this column and you will see the loco progress from a pile of laser cut steel into a nice blue 5” gauge locomotive, before it finally arrives for its debut at the Guildford Rally.
