Re: Advice on the heavy mikado

There is nothing on the market better the Jim Kreiders Berkshire.
I wanted to let somebody else mention the Berkshire first.
Best castings, best drawings, best support.
Jim, do not let this praise go to your head!

Re: Mosley Pyle Generator Eye Bolt Needed

I have both the toggle bolt and the thumb nut. They are made from the original Mosely tooling.
both the nut and bolt are threaded 00-90.
Either part is $5.00 a lot of money for something that small but they are a spot of bother to thread.

Re: Future of Superscale Locomotive

You are correct.
How many people are building steam locomotives in 1.5-1.6"scale?
Ask Jim Kreider how many people have started to build his Berkshire, the best detailed and documented engine ever made?
Jim, do not be overwhelmed by my endorsement.

BC can be formed soft and heat treated for spring temper or hardness. Unlike most nonferrous metals + BC is a good electric conductor.

Re: brown and sharpe

Sorry, colored case hardening involves cyanide. Very difficult and expensive to use or dispose of. Starrett no longer uses that process. Does any manufacture use that process now? The purchase, use and disposal of many chemical now involves permits, licenses, insurance, and inspections. A nearby pla...

Re: Brass rod half round 1/8" or German Silver Wire
