Re: My N&W class A 1239 (gauge 5", 1 in 10 scale)

Hello fans of the N&W, With some intensive work the parts for the A's cab are done now. It might be of interest how to mill big a radius on a quite small mill by means of a turntable. Using a very sharp tool and high speed in combination with milling chips of just 1/100 to max. 1/64 per round was su...

Re: 1" Scale Knuckle Coupler

David, What you really need is some side motion of about 1 " to the right / left in curves! Thus I recommend using the standard hole of the coopler and choose a proper position for the bolt to assure the needed side play in the tube. Depends on length of the frame and center of the truck. Distance b...

Re: Oil Firing 3/4" Scale

Hello RM, you're right with both of your thaughts! For the cone will not shut off the fuel safely, there is a main valve at the tender, too. That throttle cone directly at the nozzle is one of the differences to most of other types of burners. This allows to fire different fuels at a wide range of b...

Re: Oil Firing 3/4" Scale

Hello RM again, It took me some time to check this conversation of 2012 regarding my type of oil burner and fix it up for posting :roll: . Guess, all questions are asked and answered by that conversation :wink: ? Just one hint regarding the drawing of the burner: Steam inlet is the upper (smaller) c...

Re: Foundry Pattern Making

Hello all! Thinking about so called Kokillen-Guß? Starting with this discussion above I felt inspired to try a simple method without the need of a pattern.

Re: Oil Firing 3/4" Scale

Hello RM, Done already some 40 years ago and still working! You're right, petroleum will burn a bit better than diesel fuel does. Standard light oil for use with heatings for homes will do, too. Published back in 1/1991 in "dampfmodel" you'll find a drawing. First built into my Modell of DB class 44...
