September 2018 – Ford Model T Club visit
Members of the UK Model T Ford Owners Club visited the shed on 20 th September with 5 vehicles. Inspection of both the Fords and the Skeoch prompted lively discussion around similarities and differences in the two designs, it is possible that some Model T parts can be adapted to fit the Skeoch and Richard Varley of the Model T Club offered to bid for some of them on our behalf at an upcoming vintage car auction.
John Stuart is machining brackets and supports from aluminium billets using the CAD drawings, inspired by the 3D plastic prints. A wheel manufacturer has been identified, the budget estimate for 4 replica Skeoch wheels is 50% above our budget estimate, and likely to be the most expensive purchase for the project.
Peter Graham, buys some of the Riley 9 parts adding a welcome contribution to the Skeoch project funds.
