Oil Fire Door

Hello My Friends
A while back there was some discussion concerning an oil fire door. Years ago I made some masters and had molds made for an oil fire door. Through the years they were misplaced and forgotten. In moving the shop and going through mountains of old stuff I happened to find the old molds, which were trash. But to my surprise in the bottom of the dusty old paper bag were most of my masters from thirty years ago. So they were cleaned up and changed a bit, new molds made and now we have a nice 1-1/2" scale fire door. The damper in the bottom is adjustable and can be locked in position with a wing nut, and the peep hole can be opened. The door is held closed with a little wedge on the end of a chain, just like the prototype. The castings are brass, and the doors are now available assembled only. I will list the door in the for sale section if you are interested.
Happy Model Building
Jack
