Marbore II Turbojet engine
Stan Laurell and Oliver hardy were Marbore test technicians you know
The Marbore II engine is an early Turbojet engine manufactured by Turb
Particular engine I purchased from the US approximately a year to
18 months ago having been seeking a decent one of reasonable cost
for a great deal of time. It eventually arrived and was put straight
into storage as I am currently away from the UK.
the Garage with the exhaust unit installed.
Unfortunately having wanted a Marbore for as long as I can remember I have lost a bit of interest with it now. It is a big lump and for the low thrust output is not really of any use in any projet which I have the time to build now. I have therefore decided to sell her on. After some suprising and frantic ebay bidding she went to a nice chap in OZ who has a fantastic project lined up for her. I will derive my enjoyment of this engine now by seeing it run by someone else. As much of a shame as it is to se it go I am heartened by the fact that another enthusiast has purchased her and that I will at last get to see it alive.
I must Extend
my most scincere thanks to Glen Pac (Southern) ltd and DSV Freight
for their top quality and excelent value service for export packaging
and freight which was acomplished by correspondance over 6000 miles
without a single hiccup of any description.
As sad as I am to see it depart, my not having ever actually done anything with it makes this the first engine that I have ever owned that has not drawn blood!!
