Ellenroad Steam Museum 2nd. April 2017.
Four members attended this event which attracted a large number of interested visitors. An interesting new exhibit was a treadle operated lathe built to a design by Wm. Muir believed to date from the 1850s. Treadle lathes are not uncommon but this one can take workpieces a foot in diameter and 10 feet long.

We were able to hold an auction of a large collection of Meccano, approximately a No. 10 Outfit. Although much was in a rather sorry state, it produced a welcome addition to Guild funds. We expect to hold another one at the Annual General Meeting. It is expected that little will go to waste.
