Charles's Metalworking Page
Since a couple of years, my interests have extended to metal working,
having now a lathe (well, actually 2) and a milling machine.
I have taken a subscription to Model Engineer Workshop, as I am
not (yet) interested in making steam models, but in the techniques
The above links provide indexes only.
If you would like to have the articles or back issues themselves,
you will need to contact the publisher at
or better, take a (digital) subscription, which gives
access to all previous issues of MEW (although quality
of the digital issues could well be improved upon!)
My subscription started at #169 (November 2010), but my
index includes earlier work on the MEW index from
(who stopped after #190) and combined his work with the other
which also stops after #190.
I am very much indebted to Colin and Derry,
their indices are a very useful resource for the earlier and very interesting
articles in MEW.
Combining the 2 indexes into my index has been a work of slow progress;
many duplications between the 2 sources needed to be removed, some categories changed,
but also the format I used is
different because I wanted to have this in the same format as my other
As a result,
the indexes from
1-180 are mostly a combination of the work of Colin and Derry while from 190
is my contribution.
In adapting MEW to my exisisting format, I faced the problem that not all issues
of MEW had a specific month allocated (I use the numbers 1-12 for this).
Some were called "Winter" or "Christmas",
in the early years there were less than 12 issues in the year,
but there have also been years with more than 12 issues.
I have allocated these "winter" etc issues a specific month number,
when there were more than 12 issues in the year,
a couple of issues got duplicated month numbers.
In shorter words: only the issue number is unique!
So be it.
