So far, I'll be there.. Still trying to figure out logistics Provided I'm there, I'll be with the G scale live steamers, and probably walking around learning, photographing, and purchasing.... :) Might bring the frame for my 0-4-0, and get some tips, learnings, etc from others... Look for a kid that...

Re: Trailer

I will attempt to put a couple photos of 2 of the trailers I outfitted. Bruce Wow, the first photo (with the caved in roof) is impressive. I wonder, what is the weight capacity of the racks upon which you've put tracks on? Myself being the "anticipator of bad events" because It tends to happen to m...

I'm not gonna bother with the website anymore...

I did find out that Russell Stewart owns the current 1" Line, and I've asked about castings.. He's not got much right now. I should be meeting him at Cabin Fever, so I hope to find out more then.

1" Scale Little Engines 0-4-0 castings

Sirs, I've recently aqcuired a LE 0-4-0 frame that rolls, off e-bay, at a good price. I finally got it out of the packaging, and started looking around the locomotive... It was disassembled slightly for shipping (the end frames were removed), so I've started putting it back together and figuring out...

I -may- be there. If I am, I'll bring photos of our senior class project that we completed before thanksgiving (if you all remember my asking for information about a boiler, etc). We were able to complete it and run it on air, as well as do a steam test on the boiler. If I make it, i'll have photos....

I've used the endmill grinding fixture at work (and my classes), and I've gotten it down so that I can sharpen one endmill every 15 minutes, taking feasible cuts at a time... Granted, the endmills can't center cut anymore, but I usually don't center cut with 3/4" endmills anyway! I'll just ramp it d...

Re: Cutting fiber/fibre glass?

Have a need to cut/trim the hood of a garden tractor to fit a new grill and the hood is made of fiberglass (fibreglass?). What is the best way to cut this stuff, neatly? Any "warnings" about doing so? I've heard of people using wet tile chop saws for cutting fiberglass. The wet liquid will keep the...

so, uh, what has the point been of the last 5 messages, aside from thinking that we can't do it? I asked about a boiler, and naturally expected some concerning messages. How about this... this is our motivation: we must finish this locomotive, otherwise we do not graduate? In any case, we, as a clas...
