Having been told by my wife I had to get out ‘there’ and tell people about my
inventions, it was with some trepidation that ‘there’ turned out to be the Whitby
On the Saturday I took a book to read to fend off boredom! No chance. We had a
brilliant weekend and couldn’t believe how kind, interesting and creative everyone
was. It was really exciting to have the opportunity to demonstrate my machines to
so many steampunk enthusiasts and for them to be received so positively.
Looking Forward to
Race the Waves!
We’ll be demonstrating the
working steampunk machines
throughout the event. The other
products from the website will
also be on display for sale, many
at special event prices. Any made
to order machines ordered at the
event will also be entitled to 15%
After the success of the
Epizoescope, I’m currently
working on the Nempnett
Thrubwell which I plan to
showcase at Bridlington.
We hope to see you
Bridlington Race the Waves
Just got back from Bridlington - it’s been a brilliant weekend. So much interest
in the machines and our other steampunk paraphernalia. The new Nempnett
Thrubwell Kitchen Timer Kit was very popular. It was lovely letting people
know they could now build their very own working steampunk machine!

new background for our

Asylum Steampunk Festival
We had a great time at
Lincoln Asylum. Loads
of enthusiastic visitors,
all very surprised to
see the machines
Lots of Nempnett
timer kits sold, ably
advertised by my son
who assembled one of
the kits on the stall.
As always we were amazed by the ingenuity and creativity of the costumes worn
by so many of the visitors. Looking forward to next year…
The ‘Is It Time For Tea?’
Having returned from Lincoln, I started
working on the “Is it time for tea?”
machine which has, as always, become
I started by learning
about 3D printing
so Florence, the

As can be seen in
Florence now has a

to move her eyes, mouth head and neck. I’ve been regularly posting progress
videos which can be viewed on my YouTube channel
We had a fabulous time at Whitby
Steampunk Weekend. Florence was
very popular and told many surprised
visitors whether it was the correct time
for them to have a cup of tea.
I’m always amazed at the creativity of
steampunk enthusiasts, whether it’s
their incredible outfits and costumes, or
having lovely conversations about
engineering, it really is most special.
The minute I got home the 3D printer
was started to replenish stocks of the
motorised gauge kits that sold out
before the show even began!
