Re: 3-in-1 Advice Needed from the Experts

Good thread, I appreciate everyone not jumping on him about buying a 3 in 1. I bought a used Shoptask 12-22 from ShopTask in the late ‘90’s, I had done a lot of research and knew this machines limitations but I just couldn’t afford a new one at the time. It has served me well, but yes, I did spend a...

Dalton never had a QCGB but what they did with the gearing is interesting. lathes.co.uk/dalton/ Thank you for the link. I haven’t been to the site in a long time, the amount of detailed hist...

Re: The ultimate 3-in-1 machine

I think it would be interesting, maybe even successful, if someone made a reproduction machine like this, like Singer did with their original electric sewing machine- they sold reproductions at CostCo a couple years ago. While I can’t imagine CostCo selling 3 in 1 machines, maybe John at ShopMasterU...

Re: Surprising Craigslist find

There has been quite a bit of discussion about this train on other lists. Wintons are nice locos and now somewhat available from Mammoth Locomotive Works in Colorado, if you can get ahold of them.

Re: Arborway, T.T. and NW Closed

Wow, that IS a spectacular place! No, I will not be asking the price but I will continue working on a national railway preservation society with an endowment to purchase and preserve such things. As I said on a post on another forum 'what's $1000 between 10,000 friends? A $10,000,000 plan!' And a w...
