Re: Trucks

Joe, before you sell them or ship them, would you take some pictures of one of those trucks. I have a pair to build and pictures would help a lot.

Re: Yellow Jackets

A couple of days ago, I got on the tractor to move it and got a sting in my hand. A yellow jacket on the under side of the steering wheel, ouch. Glad I am not allergic to them. Got to be careful everywhere.

Re: Paint help

With the problems that I have had with the "new" Rustoleum, I would recommend staying away from it as well. I painted a customers part with Rustoleum and of course, the side that wasn't hidden peeled. And yes, I did follow their directions. And that wasn't the only time!

Re: 2-1/2" NG class A shay.

When I had built my wife's Shay, I had put a 1/2" pipe inside of a 3/4" pipe and stuffed kawool in between the pipes. It has worked well for the past 30 years.

Right now, I am adding a 3rd truck and brakes.

Re: Need eight X 5", machined wheel blanks

Call Mike at RRSC. The diesel wheels are 5" in diameter, 3/4 bore. The last ones that I got from him were CNC machined steel. No key way and no set screw holes.

The setscrews and key way, I added for my purposes.

Re: Can't Get Hole Drilled Through Sandblast Cabinet

Even industrial sand blast cabinets aren't that hard. We installed wear plates in some of them, but they were removable.
