Hi, Frederic --

That setup for sanding pieces to length and angle on the disc sander is excellent! I'm going to immediately build something similar for the trestle bents.

One question - if I set up something like that on my disc sander, on the left side of the table, the disc would be moving upward and trying to lift the piece off the table. Does your machine turn counter-clockwise or do you just hold the piece down firmly by hand?

Don

Don, thanks for the appreciation. Indeed, my sand belt turns counter clockwise so I always sand on the left side (except if there's a real size impossibility). Better than having to remember to always keep the piece down.

Many thanks for all the comments.

Scenery has not progressed as fast as I had hoped, but I was nevertheless able to fill the big hole in front of the snow shed. No more direct route to the river Hadès there...

Even with the bare plaster, that last picture is a real beauty Frederic.

Very nice Frederic.

I thought that was snow that came off the shed roof which hasn't melted yet.

Thank you for the comments, my friends. No snow near the Lake Itasca, Jim, it's the perpetual summer there.

I finally found two hours to scenice the area. It's not yet very thick and the scene lacks vertical elements, but I will wait until the current work is dry.

Beautiful work Frederic. I like how the shed brakes up the scene while allowing you to watch the train moving through it.

It's only make-believe

Thats an outstanding scene Frederic,

and wow!
