Re: the Hunchbacks of MLS (and others)

It was a wee bit too hot on Sunday, Thursday through Saturday was great. We certainly missed the smell of burnt corn and the sight of Howard dozing at the swap table.

Looking forward to the big meet.
The call of the Tinkerbells has echoed up and down the valley.

Re: EARLY 4-6-6-4 CHALLENGER. FRAME

I recall a conversation with a fellow Tinkerbell who told us the sad tale of a bundle of wooden patterns for a set cast iron frames for a 3/4'" Challenger that was tossed out or burned as kindling by unsuspecting descendants of the builder. He had assumed room temperature without informing anyone in...

Re: Expanding ¾”-Scale

NO need to learn how to measure accurately. NO need for any machine tools. NO need to learn how to read plans. NO need to buy tooling at yard sales or online. NO need to figure out how to hold a casting to your milling table. NO sharp swarf in your fingers. NO need to tap a million holes. NO more ri...

FOR SALE - Turbo Generator ****SOLD****

I have decided to offer for sale my 3/4" scale turbo generator . I bought it a long time ago for no particular project, just thought it was nice piece of engineering. Tested in pre-LED days, you could run three lights on the output. Ed Bagley design? There is a nice regulator design in the Miniature...

Re: International Small Scales Meet - Montreal 2017

Does this event usually attract lots of folks? Like most clubs, we host a "big" meet each year. Some are special anniversaries which are bigger and some are regular events that are smaller. We have a good reputation for putting on a traditional meet without excessive fanfare but lots of live steam....

Re: International Small Scales Meet - Montreal 2017

UPDATE: As part of our Small Scales Meet (June 30 - July 2, 2017), we will be having a silent auction and maybe some raffle items to raise money for the new clubhouse. Why a new clubhouse? Because after 50 years the environmental laws have caught up with the town and we will have to hook up to the ...
