Re: Sherline CNC control problem

My system is old and mounted on a cart. I just finished disassembling, cleaning the contacts, and rerouting all the cables in straight lines so there are no cord tangles. I ran a complicated piece of code for two hours without cutting anything, and the machine homed properly afterwards. We'll see wh...

Sherline CNC control problem

When running code, sometimes my Sherline CNC mill will go off on it's own. At random, the machine will change speed and direction and take off across the work, breaking the cutter. This isn't the code because I run the same code multiple times to make duplicate parts. I can't figure out if it's the ...

Re: Trouble with Microfasteners.Com

This must have been a glitch. I too have ordered from them many times.
I wanted to check here before I tried another order.

Trouble with Microfasteners.Com

Anyone order from them recently?
I ordered about $35 worth of small size screws, and I never received the order.
They never answered my Email.

I finally got my money back from Paypal.

Re: LBSC Virginia project - steamchest casting problem

Dan, It won't be optimum, but brass should be OK. You might first try contacting the supplier (if it's not an individual) to get them swapped out. I PMd the seller. I don't know if he can help, because he got the set from someone else. If he has the correct casting, fine. If not, I'll make em from ...

LBSC Virginia project - steamchest casting problem

Working on a Virginia 4-4-0 project, and I just discovered the steamchest castings are too small. My casting set must have included steamchest castings from a smaller loco by mistake. I want to fabricate the steamchests out of brass instead. Will that cause problems with the bronze cylinder castings...

Re: LALS Meet 3/4 Pacific chassis for sale?

I like 1/2" scale... What type was it that was being offered? Coventry, LE, something else??? It may have been a LE pacific. It did not have the trailing truck. There were a couple of springs missing, broken bolts on the cylinder, a real 'fixer upper'. I think it would have cleaned up pretty well.

Great pictures! That is a difficult area to photograph, especially in summer with the sun overhead.

Fantastic!
There's nothing like seeing something you built running on it's own like that!
