Fantastic work. I am a tool maker and appreciate craftsmanship when I see it. Your work is really really good. It's really nice to see some thing that's different and so god damn good.
Very proud of my clever dad!
David, I am finding your third book Two Engineers Francis Thompson & Richard Trevithick a fascinating read-thank you.
Although I now live in Scotland, as a Potteries lad by birth I found your book "In my lifetime" an absolutely fascinating read.I was able to relate to so many of the places referred to, and it's clear that you have been blessed with a lifetime of curiosity which has evolved into a career and full time hobby. Thank you for the book, it was my privilege to read it.
A real credit to your expertise and dedication to detail and accuracy. I am truly amazed at the work and research entailed in the making of each of these engines. Sharon from St Fagans museum
Fascinating work! As a lecturer in Thermodynamics, I have long wanted to construct a model Newcomen Engine by way of demonstration to the class. However, given your long and tireless effort in doing this (successfully) I wonder whether I am biting off more than I can chew. I would be grateful for any hints you can give me in this endeavour.
The most fasinating history i've ever seen on engines! The models are truly superb. Thank you so much for sharing your skill and knowledge
Superb work! I am fascinated by non-rotative beam engines (I am currently constructing a 1:24 scale model of a Cornish waterworks pump. I enjoyed reading your book very much.
Congratulations from Hill House-home built by Francis Thompson
Nice to see someone able to recreate the engines of yesteryear that became the forrunners of the industrial revolution. The models are a miniature masterpiece. Keep up the good work.
Dear David, Thanks a lot for your email and congratulations on your new website, which I find amazing!!I will soon contact you for purchasing. Best wishes, Anibal (Argentina)
Many thanks for your excellant talk last Wednesday at the Stoke on Trent Association of Engineers. Very interesting.
David. Your latest book-"In My Lifetime"- was a great read. I very much enjoyed learning about your exploits over the years. Very interesting and informative. What a lifetime!
I enjoyed talking to you about your latest engine at the model engineering exhibition on Sunday, look forward to see it`s progress. I look forward to reading your book too. Jason
I saw some of your models at the Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition a few weeks ago and they are truly amazing. What a wonderful legacy to leave the world of engineering, "just from a hobby" Greatly appreciated
