Any idea of the age of this 10h? I`m thinking 1940 or earlier?

no idea how to date them accuratly but its got the early cross slide. The lack of the stuart name on the bed or the S on the cover also I believe indicates an early version but im thinking you know better than me Smile

Same design as my No.8 so should look good together.

I`ve seen pictures of my No.8 in a 1928 annual so the 10 could be quite early.

Would you believe they used to have model engineering for kids in the 20s Shocked

One way to date maybe the threads used although not  accurate as the builder may use whats available to them. I know I mix and match so guilty as charged
Im not sure when the SMEE set out ME thread form or when Stuart switched to BA †from Whit

Stuart changed from BSW to BA around 1950.

In the case of the No.10s it went from 3/32 BSW to 7 BA.

This set of castings must be from the 40s. The instructions are still BSW but its got the new engine shape Wink

Thanks Geoff.

Was 1935 when the shape changed? Also was the 10h made as early as 1906 when Stuart started? I saw one advertised on ebay as 1906 but I can`t see it myself.

Yes Mike
The new shape is mentioned in the 1935 catalogue.
No sign of a No10 in the 1906 catalogue which I have an authorised Facsimile of. I then have a gap to 1926 when the engine is featured. However there is an extract from a letter from a Mr C.P.H who says he's had a No10 for 5 years, so it must have been in the 1921 catalogue at least.

Edit to say:
Further delving into the catalogues shows that the new shape No10 engine happened in March 1933

Thanks Mate.

I`ll have to photo the 1928 annual mentioned above. It shows the machining for the old design No.8 for young lads to make  Laughing

When was the change to cast iron made. Yours appears to have a cast iron valve box & cover.
