Re: Brass vs steel

RussN,

You are lucky with the Locoparts kits...I can't get a reply from them about a kit for my tender which I would love to send them money for! I will have to make one of my own and brass will be my choice, despite the cost.

Re: Info request, Friends Hudson tender bottom

Steamin,

This is EXACTLY what I wanted, thanks! Just for the heck of it I looked at online metals, a 12" x 36" .25 brass plate is $354. Plus shipping is probably a good chunk too!

Again, thanks for the pics, just what I wanted to see.

John,
I never heard from anyone. I will have to fab one. I have the prototype drawings, I simply wanted to see what the casting looks like from all sides to give me an idea.

Re: Info request, Friends Hudson tender bottom

Cobalt drills work great, we drill tons of 304 at work with them. Today however I have to try and remove a broken 0-80 tap in a blind hole in a piece of titanium that has about 40 hours of machine work in it!
