Re: Turning a chimney

Thanks Terry and Phil for your input. There are various ways of setting out the holes in the disc the important part is finding the centre and working out from there. Moving onto the hinges I have made a 3:1 pattern of the hinge for the Pantograph Milling Machine, and cut it out in 10 thou nickel si...

I agree with Keith. You are not actually measuring the gauge in that picture merely the distance between the two rails it should be wider that way the gauge needs to be perpendicular to the running rails

Re: Buck Jumping on Mass

Hi will I would not bother with the sprung loaded ones, I've had them and find the spring a waste of time especially with the smaller drills. Like you, mine are not holding what they used to. I found the answer really is not to change the drill bit very often, I change the drill instead. When it won...

Re: Thin-walled brass tube

Ooh - I can detect a can of worms opening! If this effect comes into play every time there is a bend radius, does that mean there is a danger of cumulative error where there are several bends on the same part? I have a specific example in mind: forming the 4 bends at the corners of a tender in 0.3m...

Hi Mike Just been playing with the single wheeler and been running it with 5 bogie coaches weighing about 225 grams each. Its only an end to end layout so can't run the train very far.

Apart from the challenge, I assume this is about keeping the wheels on the track all the time to give better pick ups. You don't say which gear box you are using I thought there are some which are slim enough for use of hornblocks in OO. You could allow the driving axle to move up and down with the ...
