Re: Anilam Crusader M 3 Axis Mill will not boot up.

That first photo shows a device marked "U C".
That looks like an old rectifier. The type that might become leaky with time and use.
Worth checking out, as it could cause the power supply to output too low a Voltage.
Just my initial thoughts.

Re: Making bushes

I would use Method 1.
Less chance of stretching the bushing when mounting.

Re: Superscale Hancock check valves

I just received my Hancock check valve from Dave/Mercer Locomotive.
Gorgeous and will work better than the original LS Industries valve that I keep rebuilding.
Dave's o-ring seats are a great improvement. No more leaks.
Thanks for the excellent product, Dave.

Re: Tesla cars

Patio: We know that electric recharge station well. It marks the turnoff to our favorite travel food stop: La Terasca. During our trips to and from Seattle, Centralia offers the BEST lunch stop at La Terasca, a family-run Michoican restaurant, next to the first set of RR tracks heading east from I5....

How would y’all suggest constructing a stainless steel tank? I’m hesitant to weld it because I don’t want to warp the sheets
And what gauge do you recommend?
Rivets and sealant.

Re: Building the 2.5" Scale Shay

Use stainless steel (SS) for the water tank.
My 15-year-old tender is riveted steel with a coating sealant applied.
It has developed some minor rust spots that I attend to annually to prevent spreading.
'Makes SS look like a better construction material.
