Re: Bobber caboose pedestal sets

After two years I am finally down to my last two kits. Not sure if I will make more, especially at this price. They are still $50, if you buy both they will be $40 apiece. Again, last two kits.

Very nice, I'm guessing that is the corebox for the light?

Re: Alco AAR class B trucks

A couple of videos I just made, I am going to finish this set up in the next month or so and hopefully all you real machinists can have a good laugh at my expense. I am also going to use this to improve my video skills, hopefully the last "reel" when I am done will show a marked improvement in quali...

Re: Signs for sale

It might be in operable condition, but I believe that the owner has some serious medical problems and hasn't run it in a few years. The Crooker machine, #64, is also at the Maine Forest and Logging Museum, and is probably runnable, but I think the boiler certificate has expired, or the family doesn'...

Re: grey iron

Fwiw, I am still on the learning curve on iron casting, and I have made several batches of wheels that initially were harder than Japanese arithmetic on the rim and relatively soft in the center. I stack a set of eight of them separated by sheets of cardboard (to prevent them from sticking together)...

I suggested a loop around the dining room but it got voted down. Maybe next year!

How to convince the Mrs to let you keep rolling stock inside...

I had a brainstorm, and suggested to SWMBO that my new caboose would make a cool Christmas tree stand, and she agreed! It looks even better in person, I think she did a great job!

Re: AAR Class B trucks

I am going to temporarily discount the truck kits, I still have all 3 available and would like to move them. Over the next month or so I am going to finish up the prototype set, and seeing how it is almost Christmas shopping season, I am dropping the price on these three sets to $400 each. This pric...

Re: New signs from Odd Duck Foundry

Finally got the patterns done, did the first castings yesterday. They came out pretty good, I think. Sometime in the near future I will be casting a pile of these, and I have ideas for future signs I will try to do over the winter. The price will be $12.50 per bar, as-cast.
