Yeah Jerry, A machine shop popped into my head too. I was thinking of a car shop, but real estate is in short supply on the layout. I will have to see if I can juggle a few things around.

In the meantime, since we all love pictures (I know I do) here is a shot of the lathe to this point. It has taken me about a week to get to this point, and may finish it in another week or two.

Getting caught up in here.

Looking pretty good, Roland.

I vote for a car shop.

Thank you all so much for the comments. I got a little more done yesterday but no photo. I spent a good bit of the day today spreading mulch around the yard, and now I can barely move. No modeling tonight.

Ronald the subtlety of the weathering is fantastic. They all look so lifelike. Looking forward to seeing some more.

Cheers, Heath.

Thanks Heath. The finish on the lathe is the same I used before. I polish the parts with 600grit sandpaper, then soak them in Blacken-it. When dry I polish them with a Q-tip. It will not get into small corners and leaves them darker. The more the part is polished the lighter it gets. The only paint on the model so far is a little black on the gear teeth. It is really easy to do.

It's tough getting old Bill. The masonry co I retired from called today and asked if I would consider coming back to work a couple of days a week. I haven't had a trowel in my hand in 4 years and plan to keep it that way. I told them I just couldn't do it.
