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?

Thankfully no conflict in the dates with FLLS, so Bernie can help wash dishes at MLS first. :lol: The Finger Lakes Live Steamers 50th Anniversary Meet is two (2) years away. It will be the first weekend of August in 201...

Re: International Small Scales Meet - Montreal 2017

I knew there was something wrong in 2000, when the tender kept falling into the gaps... (and in case you are humor deficient, that's with a giant :D ) Anyone who is contemplating, I can recommend Montreal, as they seemed a right friendly bunch of people when I was last there. (only 17 years ago...)...

The website is still down after four or five months? Time for a new website! David And it is born tonight.
