Projects for the Unimat by Rex Tingey
The Unimat lathe series first appeared in the 1950’s and developments have gradually broken down the resistance of engineers who thought it too small to be capable of serious work. Rex Tingey was a radio aircraft and car modeller who bought a Unimat to make accessories not readily available commercially, but he found working on the little lathe so absorbing that he spent increasing amounts of time and ingenuity on extending its scope and developing methods of work an workpieces which have earned him an international reputaiton. This book brings together a number of designs including versions of his ingenious ‘valveless’ steam enigne, culminating in a working steam traction engine for which drawings and instructions are provided, along with similar details of half a dozen other projects.
