Never seen it in the UK but keep seeing eps on YouTube every time I search a Fusion 360 question. Not aware of his backstory just seems like another guy who watched far too many episodes of American chopper and thought that look will make me a mint. You must admire cable TV who can make a drama out ...

I have not been able to update the website for the best part of 18 months so have been unable to load images and link to them. But I do remember asking on here about both the standard HT stoker and Berkley fire door. At long last I have found an alternative to Dreamweaver 8 which no longer works wit...

Depends what type of machine you have I guess. I bought the three-year version as after that machines up to 3HP are free. Which works for the Tormach I own as it’s only the CNC where I need a bit of a clue on S&F’ds

I have a full set of drawings done in the UK by a guy called F. B. Gittins, who was apparently building 4 PRR E6's for a commission in the states to run on 7.5 gauge. I did a bit of research on the guy and was told the l the loco's were very fine scale. The prints are obviously CAD generated so are ...
I got one bought it second hand from a guy in the UK; nice saved all that bloody import duty. Had it for about four years now far from proficient success rate is about 50 to 60 %. Not the machines fault my failure to think like a Russian using Spritcam. Biggest selling point is the product support a...

This is the version fitted to the 25NC I had the racks CNC’d years ago now I would just RP em and cast in Bronze or something. The rollers were RP’d and cast so don’t know why I did not do the whole lot that way. http://northernsteam.com/assets/images/25NC/fronttruck/FT%20(58).jpg At the time I had ...

I have always machined the wheels fully using a mandrel then pressed them on the axles. For a change most recently I made axle sets up and machined the tread on the axle between centres. I was machining steel tyres on about 5.5” dia wheels. I found that it was difficult to keep them from chattering ...
I don’t quite know where the time has went but the 2” scale RP models are finally ready to go to the foundry after I get back from the windy city next week. The standard HT-1 detail all came from the NWHS and the Berkley fire door was a mixture of GA and photographs from the North British drawing ar...
