Taunton Model Engineers

TME welcomes you to West Buckland our permanent home!

Our club is open to anyone with an interest in Model Engineering.

Whether your interests be in Traction, Stationary, Hot Air or I/C Engines, Locomotives, Boats, Tools or Clock making, Robots, Vehicle restoration or any other subject related to engineering, then the TME could be a home for you. You may not be actively involved in model making or any kind of engineering for that matter, but just like to appreciate the work of others.

If any of the above describes you, why not join us? Just take the Members link and Print off an application form or if you would like to know more first, explore the website for further information.

If you have a couple of minutes to spare, whet your appetite on this video link to view some examples of members' work and just some of the club's activities - enjoy!
