Re: Building a Veranda

About ten or so years ago, I seriously considered building one in 3/4" scale.. I was going to use one of the then "new" turbine engines for RC jets.. One of the manufacturers had a helicopter version with a reducing gearbox.. The engine was 5" diameter, and if I remember correctly the locomotive wa...

Re: is anyone making these?

I have since sold my locomotive and can't remember if I had used Railroad Supply brackets, but I know brackets are available. Here's some pics on the Fitchburg Northern Builders Group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10212860617404327&set=gm.1876117399067479&type=3&theater Thank...

Hi John,
Oddly enough I began drawing up one for my tanks just last night.
Harry, When you say drawing up, will you be sending them to Shapeways, of scratchbuilding them yourself?

is anyone making these?

Hi All, Before I make a hand full of these cut lever brackets, does anyone know of a supplier who has already made them? I searched Shapeways and couldn't find anything, and the ones from PSC aren't right.. Thanks.. John Screen shot 2018-06-15 at 7.49.56 AM.png Screen shot 2018-06-15 at 7.51.11 AM.p...

Dave, I don't know what kind of machinery you have, but I milled my angle for a water hatch from a solid piece of CRS..

Re: nuts and bolts in scale

You can set up to make your own bolts quite easily if you'd like to.. A turret attachment for your lathe, and a small geometric die head can knock out just about any size bolt in probably less than 25 seconds.. Once you get it dialed in, maybe even faster than that.. It's far less money than buying ...
