Re: USPS is a mess...

I just received an item today that was ordered on Dec 6th, it was just over 100 miles away to the east, then went 250 miles west, then showed up today. Tracking info still shows its en route.

Re: ISO Powermatic V-Belt pulley machine work

The original was cast iron.. I ordered cast iron round stock from McMaster-Carr. its what they call impact resistant ductile iron.
The black color is cheap rattle can paint just so it would not rust.

Re: Tractor Trailer Kit Help

If you are talking about a semi trailer kit, I do believe it was Mountain Car that was producing the kit.

Mountain car is now Titan Trains so you might contact them and see if they have any info.

Re: Realistic pump testing – boiler simulator?

I built a couple axle pumps for one of the scotty mogals being built. Just testing seeing what they would do using my hands to push the plunger in I ruined a 250 psi gauge, two pumps on the engine, running on air and the engine barely slows down as you close the bypass and the water pressure crosses...

Re: WTB: 8” or 10” steel wheels

If you are building a scale set of trucks the overall size of a wheel including flanges is going to be 11 to 11.5 inches. I realize most don't build to scale in 15" as the size and weight can add up quick.

Re: Searching for 2-6-0 "Scotty" Mogul Drawings

At least one set of our Scotty Mogul drawings are dated in the late 1930's. I will have to look out at the shop but I believe we ended up with a driver pattern for the Scotty mogul. Its been along time since we discussed it but seems like they might of had other patterns for it, they got loaned out ...

Re: Searching for 2-6-0 "Scotty" Mogul Drawings

Do you have the basic castings ? The local group here has built many scotty mogul's with the latest one being in the final touches stage. It was procured by one of the group as a "started" project if you could call it that, that had to be totally redone to correct all the issues. IMG_20200801_204240...
