Re: Around the country

Ridge Live Steamers, Largo, Pasco, Boots. I know I am missing some. The Ridge Live Steamers has on site RV parking. And a lot of great people that time of year.

Re: Anyone printing in wax?

There are other options when it comes to investment casting. Anything that does not produce toxins when burned out will work. But the less ash it leaves behind the better.

Re: Lubricator

The shaft needs to be hardened. Not just drill rod but hardened drill rod. I am sure they spec a hardness.

You need to come down to Ridge Live Steamers and work the logging branch.

Re: Valve Passage Core Box Plug

I think a corebox that is in sections will work.

Re: CNW J class Mikado

The cradle has been printed. Now it will be sent to the foundry to be pored in Silicon Bronze.

No Not in your mind but for me that is a bit much. BTW how many of these do you need?
Less than 100. I also machined the fitted bolts for the cross members. I just turn up the speed as fast as it will go on the lathe. I would say 2 to 3 minutes per bolt.

Re: nuts and bolts in scale

So I am going overboard by making #7-36 screws for my project.
