Not completely. RWD has made a bit of a comeback in some segments, and AWD stuff is a lot more common than it once was.

Re: Rebuild of an Allen Mogul.

Looking forward to it... I'm planning to start building one of these in the not too distant future (gathering parts now).

Re: I am OK And back on track

As for me I have been dealing with an attack of gout which is very painful and has affected both hands. I feel your pain! I guess I'm fortunate in that mine has stayed in one toe so far and is somewhat manageable with anti-inflammatory meds. However the first time it happened I had to have a steroi...

Re: Small Scales Injector - PRODUCT ANOUNCEMENT

Would this be capable of feeding something the size of an Allen Mogul (when a second larger injector also exists on the engine)? The idea being to let one smaller injector handle water delivery most of the time, larger one for backup or for just topping off during higher demand. The one engine I've ...

Re: Finally Got to Shoot on my Own Land

That's the best way to shoot and I wish I was still a bit more rural so I could do the same. No hourly range fees to worry about, no trying to haul everything you need all at once (need more ammo? run back in the house and grab it!).

I'd like a Mogul 2-6-0 frame, one set.

Re: Still Here, Irma Notwithstanding

Always wondered why when a disaster is coming, that there is a run on bread, eggs and milk at the grocery store? Everyone sets around and makes French toast? :) That has always baffled me, even though I am in the south where the mere mention of the S-word in a winter weather forecast results in the...

Unistrut-style lathe tool holder rack

I built a lathe tool storage rack out of some unistrut, angle brackets, and angle aluminum. Cut the aluminum to length, mill a bevel on one leg, drill the other leg, bolt it all together. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-IxKqXMElLtcXhBeVBDbm5iV2M/view?usp=sharing Just need to mount it to the wall ...

Re: GE 23 ton boxcab in 7.5" gauge / 1.5" scale

That's an interesting idea, I never thought of doing it like that. As to the live center, the picture I posted may not show enough to show the live center but it's there. :) I bought one early on as I didn't much like the idea of using a dead center. A club member suggested I finish out the fillet b...

Re: GE 23 ton boxcab in 7.5" gauge / 1.5" scale

The mandrel shown in my previous post was a first hack at it using what I had on hand... I may try making a beefier one tonight since I will have a lot more wheels to turn. I picked up a larger nut that will allow me to keep the "stub" on that end to a larger diameter, and I have some beefier steel ...
