Jim,

Nicely done on the museum diorama. Good to see the museum is still going.

Tom  ;D

Thanks Tom;

The little deport museum is doing well. It is open two days a week and gets steady traffic I am told. I know it is open a same time there is a open market next door so that helps.

Lovely stuff here, Jim.

Although, see to that twisted belt before the foreman gets wind of it! ;)
Ah the infamous twisted belt. I know you are just kidding but a lot of research actually went into the pulley system because, like you, I did not see how belts could be twisted 90 degrees in a manner where they would actually track. I found a YouTube video showing how it is done so attempted to add the necessary pulleys, belts and drive train to make it happen. Frankly I think I missed something and not being an engineer I decided ‘close enough’ (a government term).would have to do. Still, I like that you noticed. The belt slipping off in photo was fixed.

It was that slipping twisted belt I was referring to. You are right though, half twists and 90-degree twists in belts were commonly used to either a) reverse the direction from central drive shaft to machine or b) for clearance purposes. Later on, when electric overtook steam, many machines (especially larger ones that required variable speeds and power) often had their own dedicated motors separate from the central line shaft.

Loved seeing this shop — especially in HO. Thanks, Jim.
