Ken,
That is great news on the job front, congratulations.

Mike, I bet it does feel good to get your masters behind you. I look forward to seeing progress on your RR then.


Bruce, I will look it up on Harsco thread, thanks.

Mark, All I can say is that the refinery is kind of like Texas, takes up lots of territory. It also takes a bunch of brass.
I need to take better photos and post the progress of the refinery in the other thread.

I love your work on this refinery, Tim. The brass pipe stand is a great model. And your out of scrap addition is very nice too. It looks a bit clean, though, in its pure whiteness. Does it still have to be weathered or are there such tidy corners in refineries (a place I really don't know but that I imagine relatively dirty - maybe wrongly)?

Gosh yes I am still kicking.... I was talking to one of the Tuesday night gang and they informed me about the lag in posting. Honestly time seems to be going by faster and faster.

Much has been done on the RR and I need to take some photos and share the work on this wonderful forum. I do miss the suggestions and input I have received here, and hope to be more active in the upcoming months.

Here is a current project that we are just getting started on. The twin towers in this photo at the Devils Slide cement plant in Wyoming.





We will be building the rest of the structures you see over the next few months but we have to start somewhere and this is it.
The neat thing about these twin towers is the connecting platform above and the nut bolt castings that can be used at the bottom. I am hoping to turn them on the lathe tonight.

I don't have a complete photo fo the top of the towers so we will improvise there.

This should be fun to watch. What will you be using to turn the towers out of Tim?

Good question Wes,
What normally happens is that I look around for some scrap material and that is what I use. However with that said I will not use Oak or a real grainy wood as it is to hard to get a real smooth finish.
I have been experimenting with solid plastic cutoffs and that is quite interesting.

The answer is, will have to wait and see. I was told early on in amateur turning class to never tell anyone what you were making until your done. I know for certain that is good advice. I have turn large blanks thinking I will have a nice bowl and end up a small goblet or a toothpick

Hi Tim. Good to see you posting again. The forum is just not the same without your valuable contributions
