OK, I'm at home now & can't access it (Error: too many processes)

Can anyone get access now?
Cheers!

This is too weird..... I still can't access it from here (home), but I bet if I logged into the office I'd be able to get onto it.
Cheers!

It's working for me at home now as well....

I did send them a couple of traceroutes yesterday (one working, one not), whether that's related to it getting fixed or not, I have no idea...

Anyone still not able to access it?
Cheers!

Still OK here ... did have a 404 on MEM about an hour ago but it kicked in again some 5 mins. later.

PS    New AA battery resurrected egg timer  .  :thumbup:  ( Weird really, with a 65mA drain the battery showed 1.52V steady but the timer was NBG ... Same drain on new battery says 1.46V and the wretched timer works ..  :scratch: )

Not sure whether to blame Climate Change, Brexit or Mr. Putin ... I'll have a 'Speckled Hen' while I think about it.   :beer:

  Sorry guys our misbehaving hosting server seems to have gone bits up. We have raised a ticket with the provider but no response so far :bang:


The absolute worst case is that we have a copy of the forum from the 10th January already running on our new server....but not any of the posts since the 10th  :( Like my acquisition of the drawings for the OHV conversion for my Challenger or completing the AHC

Will have to nip down to Jo's and off-load 'em like some of the last lot ... Don't suppose Morrison's would take 'em in part chop for something more suitable for yer average toe-rag ????  Nah .. not that lucky .

 :thumbup:

As I know some of you are missing your fix..... this is one I prepared earlier:

Quote
In the beginning Majesco did more than the diesels it is famous for, it did a lovely little side-port petrol engine of 4.5cc. Known as the Majesco “45”, it was one of the first British engine to appear after WW2. The prototype seems to have been developed before the war as the initial claims was that by mid 1946 it had already provided 7 years of service.

This little engine is over-square with a bore of 19mm and a stroke of 15.8mm. You could buy it ready to run for a vast £6 10s or for £1 16s as a kit that you could make yourself. This is one of those original kits 8)

The aluminium alloy castings are diecast rather than sand so they have a nice silky smooth finish. The design has a few little quirks such as the cylinder being bolted on from below despite that it is renown to be a good little runner and is much favoured by today’s vintage fliers (aircraft not modellers ).

Isn't it a cutie and the kits not bad either   :ddb:

If anyone can reach MEM, can you tell me the IP address? I'll try to reach it that way.

Chuck

Disregard above, doesn't work from here either. If I try ip address, I get a message to contact webpage host. If I try http://www.modelenginemaker.com, I get a index of folders...

Looks a big engine ?? What size is the plug. 10mm ?

Largest engine I ever had, (1 + alotofbits ), was a marinised Taplin Twin. Only got it going once  :scratch: and just about suffocated in a mates shed.  Green anodised water jackets IIRC.
T'other was an ED racer ( 2.5CC ??? ) Can't really remember.

Back in my model boat days, electrics more my style. Much more dignified.

Is the big casting to the left an aluminium fuel tank rather that the plastic one of the fully built version?

...

Dave

That is a 3/8" plug. I have to decide if I want to fit the competition 3/8" plug or a more in scale 1/4" plug.

Is the big casting to the left an aluminium fuel tank rather that the plastic one of the fully built version?

Yes, that is the easy way to spot a factory built engine from a casting built one that rather sexy red light plastic tank with the engine name around it.


I have been looking at the crank, it is interesting, not at all how I would want to make it: It comes as a disc a piece of 5/16" Silver steel (with oxide) and a small diameter very short bit for the pin that all need silver soldering up. But as always I am always up for trying new things, if it goes wrong I can always go back to my preferred solid crank  :coffee:.

MEM should be back for everyone now, if not then the DNS records should update in the next couple of hours. Writing this on my phone, so brevity is the name of the game :)

Lyn.

To the best of my knowledge my engine dated from circa 1960-2 ish. It had it's box and had allegedly been run.  :scratch:
I never ran it. It went with the Taplin Twin + bits about 1977 to a geezer near Burton-on Trent.

Don't know if you're aware of it but some info. here:
