Citric Acid Crystals – Update

Peter Pearson kindly pointed out to me that my offer of citric acid crystals was way over the market price. I have now corrected to £2.50 per 95 gram . Sorry I think I my muddled mind must have typed the number of containers as the price!

About David Ward

Born 08/11/1951 educated Cheltenham Grammar School. Did basic metal work to year 4 and Wood work to A level. Went to teacher training college to do metalwork, woodwork and technical drawing (in the blue print days!). Left in first year after one months teaching practice. Took temporary job at Serck Controls (fluid pipe line controls). Took career in insurance finishing in the corporate business unit in Bristol. After 37 years my job was exported to India and I was (compulsory) retired. Joined BSMEE at their stand at Ally Pally in 1990. Ambition was/is to build a steam locomotive. An awful lot seems to have got in the way, not the least my butterfly mind, several starts and no finishes! BSMEE has generally been a rewarding experience, and other societies I have generally found welcoming even on impromtu visits. I would recommend membership but like any voluntary organisation what you get out of it is directly proportional to what you put into it.

  1. Used Citric Acid for over 40 years. Yes it does take a bit longer but is particularly good on brasses and bronzes. When spent it just stops working and is easy to dispose of!

    Anyone have a set of wheel castings for 5″ gauge “Ivo Peters” for sale? 2 pony, 8 d&c.
    Reeves ROD or Nigel Gresley will do.
