Today’s arrival from Trev  :)  last two purchases have taken about 30 days from the day they were shipped, not too bad...

Looks to be built like the proverbial brick sh*thouse, and I'll bet it offers some significant power to boot!

What are all the stemmed screw caps in the first photo?

Air line adapters that Trev made for this and my other engines. I’m taking all of my TTB’s to a show  :)

Jim, it’s one of the first TTB’s I liked, but for some reason I have just now finally gotten one... 6 TTB’s later   :D

Trev posted the gold stamper yesterday that I ordered. Very much looking forward to that arriving.

Your TTB collection will look great running at the show.

Lucky you Jim!! I would love one of those stamp mills, but I know Trev doesn’t like the repetitiveness of making the same engine/accessory...

I've been watching Aussie Gold Hunters (TV Series) with my 9 year old grandson, so the gold stamper is going to be fun to run with him.

Trev built it on the weekend for me and posted it on Monday.

Good morning from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn...

  At the risk of sounding uninformed (par for a husband) where is
TTB located and, please, provide a website address?  I've seen
the twin before, and it is a pip!

Thanks,
Wayne

TTB: Trev’s Toy Box

Trevor is located in Victoria, Australia

I will pm you his email address

His prices are very reasonable and he builds a wide variety of unique engines. He often has a dozen or so different variations already made up for sale as he does sell locally at shows.

That is very nice Nick, no doubt inspired by the pre war Mamod Minor 2

Yet to add one of Trevs engines to my own collection but it is nice to see all the different designs he has produced so far. I quite liked the three cylinder radial he did.
Your nose is before your eyes, so trust it first!

Thanks, Trevor.

I also sent it to you by pm, but here is his business card. (His website is not active)

If you have any trouble getting ahold of him, let me know.
