Hi, I’m Dave Kearley, thanks for looking at my archive of my engineering, CNC, DIY and electronics projects.
Among my many pastimes, I have built both a quarter-scale and a half-scale traction engine which were very enjoyable, you can look at my builds here or find a more detailed study in the three books that I have published titled “A Dream Comes True 1 & 2” and “Little Samson 2” these are still available (contact me) they received fantastic reviews, part one was featured in the April 2008 issue of “Old Glory” magazine and part two in the September 2008 issue.
The Tesla Coiling pages should be entertaining to any budding high-voltage experimenters! They are stunning devices and although extremely dangerous, are quite easy to build for the technically minded.
Following the closure of my home engineering business, I have now converted the double garage it used into a games room, you can follow the conversion here.
