Alan McEwan’s Sledgehammer Engineering Press

31st March 2018
I’ve just added a link to my friend Alan McEwan’s Sledgehammer Engineering Press onto my links page, but I thought I’d post it here as well as I’m not sure how much traffic that bit of the site gets these days.

Alan, the ‘Lanky Boilermaker’ spent his career as an industrial boilermaker, much of it running his own boiler making and repair business. The business is now run by his son, and Alan is busy writing articles and books about industrial heritage and his own career in the world of heavy engineering. He was a close friend of the late Fred Dibnah, and has written a book on Fred’s chimney drops. These books are all published by Alan and his Sledgehammer Engineering Press.

Definitely worth a visit, as his Facebook site at
