Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Jack, Beautiful work as usual... I look forward to seeing your posts, it seems like I always learn something..! One question, how did you solder the three pieces of the rim casting together, were they soldered right there on that fire brick? Whenever I try to do that, it seems that it takes forever ...

Re: WTB: Looking for a reflector for Mosley Pyle National Headlight

I ended up making my own after not being able to find anything available in 2" diameter.. These are made from copper sheet after several annealings.. I made the male/female dies, and used a Harbor Freight press to form them.. Once the rear boss was soldered on, they were sent out to be chrome plated..

Re: First steam locomotive build-3/4" scale Raritan

Lets not forget that the Kozo A3 also has a copper boiler that was constructed from flat sheet.. If I remember correctly, very close in diameter to 3-1/2"? You can probably use all of his prints for the formers???

Re: propane question
