Cannon Barrels without a Lathe
by John Hipkiss

Hot Air Toys
by John Ross
These are hot air machines, not steam engines. John looks at the latest Stirling Engine models from Boehm, as well as their new Henry Wood 'flame-gulper' model. These toys can only be used under adult supervision but they are fascinating to operate and watch.
