Re: Solidworks question

I don't know about 2007, but from 2012 to now, the setting is under "options". Use the left tab, the "Document Properties" tab will only effect

Re: LE American & cross-head pumps?

The cross head pumps on my LE American did not keep up with the water usage and we used the injector and the hand pump to make up the difference. If the rams are increased in size, then the "jerkiness" of the locomotive becomes more pronounced. In the end, I left everything alone and my wi...

Re: Lathe DRO recommendation

I would recommend DRO PROS as well. The magnetic scales are easy to cut for a specific application. I have done a large Bullard line boring mill

Re: CPR G5C Class 1246 Pacific

I would say come on down, but it is a 3 hour drive to my place from Cabot. On the other hand, if you don't mind the drive, give me a shout, just to make that we are here.

Re: Trailer Hitch Weight Ratings

Steve, If you have the 3/4 ton Cummins, then it will have a 1500lbs tongue weight and a 12k load limit. The 3500 is higher.
