Re: Green velvet oil

I think Cen-Pe-Co offers Steam Cylinder oil in 2 gallon jugs or 1 gallon bottle.

Alcohol Burner

Is anyone here running the Shattock Alcohol Burner? I would like to build and install one in my 3/4" scale Hudson I am building. I have the plans and articles. I would like to see some good pictures if anyone has any. I like the idea since my locomotives are housed in my basement and will be run in ...

Boiler Kits from A. J. Reeves

I see Reeves has 20% off all their 3 1/2" gauge castings until Sunday, I need a boiler for a 3 12" gauge Virginia I purchased some time ago. They list this as a kit, has anyone ever purchased a "Boiler Kit" from Reeves? My question is what does it all consist of?

Re: Brown & Sharp N0. 1 Milling Machine

It came with a full set of gears also. The gears for the original dividing head had finer teeth on them and t...

Re: Brown & Sharp N0. 1 Milling Machine

Does anyone have a good picture of what the original dividing head would look like and what all went with it. I have some dividing plates and change gears which I believe were part of the dividing head.

Re: Brown & Sharp N0. 1 Milling Machine

I didn't have much time to study it over today, right now I am storing it at the shop where I work until I make some space for it in my home shop. But, where I have it now makes it easier for me to clean it up and inspect things over a little bit. Now I need to figure out just where I am going to pu...
