Enterprise Plastics, the plastic tie people.

Thanks Marty. I tried to email them but it bounced. I guess a phone call is in order.

Re: Plastic couplers

I've not had any luck locating the plastic couplers. Can anyone point me in the direction of a commercial source?

Thanks

Re: Maine-style trucks on 3 1/2" gauge-NOW TAKING ORDERS

A recent photo studio shoot gave me some lovely pictures to share. Please note, the order window will be closed shortly, as I am reaching my quota.

Re: 3/4 scale track and loose rail ****SOLD****

Can anyone recommend a current commercial source for similar rail? I have a non-internet friend who is looking.

Thanks

Thank you for the thought Adirondack, but I really sort of like not having advertisements on the pages.
I appreciate your interest though.
Understandable. Had to ask.

Cheers,

Can I buy a sponsor banner at the top of certain web pages?

Re: Your own large scale RR

Owner financing would make it an easier "sell". You need to feel the dream, and a bank won't do that.

Need wheels? Need patterns?

Hi folks. I'm at a point where I can take on a few new projects, and I wondered if anyone needs some BIG wheels or other items for their various grand scale projects. I can easily take your sketch or even just basic dimensions and turn them into a CAD drawing that then produces a 3D printed foundry ...

I haven't tried this yet, but it on my list of filaments to try for lost wax casting.

This also looks very promising.

On Youtube, Myfordboy just posted a new video on lost PLA casting from his 3D printer. He used a hybrid mould using both investment and green sand. The metal was aluminum. It suggests what can be done with a PLA pattern.
Dick, do you have a link for the video?

Thx

Need CNC lathe work for small production run

After (suddenly) losing my regular shop to the economy, I need someone to run the parts for my 3 1/2" gauge trucks. I can provide proper drawings and a CAD solid model. The parts will be run in 1018 or equivalent mild steel.

Please PM so we might discuss.

Thanks!

1.75"/foot scale for two foot gauge prototype is 3.5" gauge. A nice size model in my opinion.

To the OP, not clear from your ad, is price mentioned per pair of trucks (ie one car) or per truck?

Mountaineer
Price per pair, shipping included. Yes, they are Maine 2 foot prototypes.

Thanks!
