Hello Jeremy,
If the "boss" is also using your broadband elsewhere the pixelation is more likely to be insufficient capacity of your broadband.

Hello,
I have an old billhook I use for chopping kindling for the fire. Glad i isn't as sharp as his though as I could do serious damage to myself.

Re: Plywood sleepers

Hello,
Many of the sidings in prototypical images appear to actually lower than the main running lines.
Maybe thick and thin sleepers make realistic recreations of the prototype easier and more economical at the same time.

Re: MR 1P 0-4-4T detailing

Hello,
The boiler tank stay is always one of those parts that never seems to be made available. Considering the number and types of locomotives that had them it seems strange that it is so commonly ignored. Can you show how you produce yours please?

Hello,
One could apply the "messy" tag to just about everything related to model railways really.
Soldering,painting, wiring or even building. Some people are "messier" than others even when it comes to having a tidy up.

Re: Rivet Press 2

Hello Keith,
I think from what others have said that it was the initial cost pf the presses that made the production of the whole thing just too expensive.
If just the machined parts were available perhaps the cost could be low enough for someone to manufacture them again.

Hello Steve,
Been down that route but have been unsuccessful. I saw one on ebay but it went to someone else.
I think most people go the plastic chair route now.

Rivet Press 2

Hello, I understand the groups rivet press/punch is no longer viable due to the cost of a basic press needed. I wonder if the machined parts would be viable for using with a bare press sourced by the purchaser. Failing that are there any dimensional drawings available for making ones own parts? trus...

Re: Plywood disaster

Hello,
I would suggest any timber based material suspended in the air and inadequately secured is likely to warp due to variations in temperature and humidity above and below.
