Good morning! I'm off to make some EXPO dollars. I hope everyone has a great day.

John,

Mackenzie Milling is looking very good.

I had a lot of fun building that one. I used it on the old, old layout. Now its on the shelf.

Tom ;D


Thanks Tom


Oh yes the old, old layout.  Since my new layout is built on top of the old layout I uncover it some times when I cut into the benchwork.  In fact, I found the mounting plate for the old lighthouse when I cut the hole for the Mackenzie build. I think I sold or swapped that lighthouse some where along the line. Thanks for stopping by
Tom and the trip down memory lane.

It's looking good Tom!  Good to see you back at the workbench, too!


John,

Thank you my friend. I'm almost back to 100% as far as interest in the layout work is concerned.

Tom ;D


Great to hear it!  I came back from the Narrow Gauge Convention on fire - I've put in a couple 16 hour modeling days in the last week. I have found the inspiration always goes in cycles - especially when you have a big goal like you did with the NMRA open house.  Keep up the great work - we are watching!

Great job , what a scene this will be when ready.


Thanks Jan


I'm real happy with it.  Now for all the details, the best part.

It's all coming together nicely. The holes in the roof are a very nice touch for a dilapidated structure.


Thanks Curt - the roof holes where very time consuming but I think they are well worth it.

Progress Pictures on the Mackenzie build.  Small building sections have been added and it's time to add the roof sections.

Good morning! I'm going to be working for EXPO dollars the next couple of days.  The Narrow Gauge Convention depleted my supply. I hope everyone has a great day.

And here is the spin casting machine. A needle in the right place to get the air out and I was able to get enough centrifugal force to fill the mold. It was a fun little mini project.







Frank the casting will be on their way this week.

So my high tech low cost spin casting machine is a success.


Here are a few of the castings that I was able to produce this afternoon.





As I protected the process I was even able to fill the mold enough to cast the shaft on the gear box.

So I didn't want to let Frank down,  because he's making a special build for a special friend so I decide to make a spin casting machine to try and fill the molds.

So I tell Frank I'll make a couple with the molds I'm making for my scratch build job.  I don't know if the mold will fill - haven't had much luck making real small resin castings. And I make a couple and the look like I expected.

So I get a call from Mr. Erieman - John do you have the FSM Rock Bunker Kit? Can you check if these castings are part of the kit. Picture shows up on my cell phone.  I need the castings for my special project.




So I check the yellow box inside the wonderful yellow box and sure enough here are the castings that Frank needs.
