Cornish Pump Engine: Update 11 Oct 2010

Cornish Pump Engine: Update 11 Oct 2010.

Today's work included making up the beam from plastic sheet, wooden shutters and additional paintwork. Ignore the gap around the base, that will be filled when the structure is set into the ground. There is still quite a bit of detail to be added to the area below the beam. I'll post a snap in due course.


  1. Don't mean to be picky, but is the hole in the wall big enough for the beam to move up and down ?

  2. Plenty, the central pivot point is only a little way inside. This is easily achievable: http://s0.geograph.org.uk/photos/62/97/629788_7269744d.jpg

  3. I might let you off. In that picture someone cowboay has obviously turned up at the door and said "You don't want all this old stone. You want some nice wood cladding guv'ner"
