Re: VERTICAL TURRETT LATHE (CNC)? NO WAY

You can machine large cylinder blocks on a 24inch machine.

If your building a 15 Inch gauge locomotive this machine would help make it easier. I myself use a horizontal mill to bore cylinder blocks that I can't chuck up in an engine lathe.

Re: 4 Wheel parts for 2 1/2" scale Bobber Caboose or Gondola

Hi Bob
Just to let you know these castings were Mercer Pedestals and journals and wheels meant for six wheeled Pullman trucks. They could certainly be used to make a bobber caboose.
