Hannum 4-4-0?

Hi folks. Does anyone have additional photos or know more about the Hannum 4-4-0? It is an older design, but I do think it has very pleasant lines. Drawings and castings were available at one time. It certainly is an excellent alternative to the more typical LBSC "Virginia" on 3 1/2" gauge. Thanks A...

Re: Please visit our new Facebook product page

I rather enjoyed visiting your page. I was quite surprised by the scope of work your little shop has accomplished. I was even more surprised to see that you have been part of some well-known projects here on the Chaski board. Most of all, it warmed my English heart to see you had given new life to ...

Are you volunteering Bill? LOL

I can do larger quantities if that's what it takes.

I think you're both missing a great opportunity to connect with other builders and live steamers. Not everyone is on Chaski, and the global footprint of Facebook opens you up to a lot of new ideas and perspectives.

what material?
Mild steel. Nothing too greedy, enough for 3-6 cars for now. More if you're willing!

You might post what machine controller was being used to make your parts, and a sample of the code, as code generated for one controller does not mean that it is compatable with other controllers. You would also have to know what cutters were being used for the different operations. The best would ...

Have G-code. Can someone run these?

Hey folks. My old shop closed down but was kind enough to send me the G-code for my parts. These are the wheels and axles for my 3 1/2" gauge Maine style trucks.

Would anyone be willing to run some parts for me from these files?

Thanks

Whoops - just saw the footnote on the photo- appear to be patterns not cast wheels... very cool!

Thanks

Hey Glenn. The top photo shows the final ductile iron castings made from my patterns on the far right.
