Detroit "A" mechanical Lubricator

I am looking for drawings for the Detroit "A" 8 feed mechanical lubricator. Just interested in outside dimensions, bolt locations and other outside details. I want to make a non working model.
Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Octagonal Pipe Fittings

Hello Jack,
I am happy to hear you will be offering these pipe fittings for sale. Quality and accurate pipe fittings especially in the smaller sizes have been sorely needed. I am very interested in the 3/32" fittings. Keep up the great work.

Re: 1.5" scale narrow gauge K-36

Here are some more photos of the K-36 build. Some items I finished awhile ago. Smoke box Okadee hinges, blower check valve and the beginnings of the head light.

Shrink fitting steel tires

I am getting ready to shrink steel tires on to the driver centers. I am a little worried that a heavy shrink will crack or brake some spokes on the wheel center. What would be an acceptable shrink fit and still be safe with the spokes? The wheel center is 4.625 diameter. Thank you. K-36 wheel center...

Yes, F Kreider that's a very nice looking fire box door. Jack, I am anxious to see how your door comes out. Are you thinking of offering them for sale?

Re: Prototypical looking hydrostatic lubricator?

I made one in 2.5" scale. A lot work, but it does add to the realism.

Re: 1.5" scale narrow gauge K-36

I finally finished the link and cheek plates for the K-36. What a project. A tooling plate was made to help with the machining.
