Yes, big improvement.

I'm taking notes from this thread for when I start on my machine shop again. Lots of good ideas here. Beautiful workmanship.

Mike

Thanks guys, glad you like it. Now I need to figure out how to get my 1:1 hands in there to finish it without breaking anything. A couple of weeks ago I reached for something and knocked the whole back wall off.

Superb work as always Roland. I am with you in the hands department, I consider it a good day if I don't break anything. Knocking things over is okay.

Spectacular work, Roland! I showed my wife, just now, and she said "how in the world can you work that small?" ... I told her I can't! ... you have to be a MASTER!

Happy New Year!

CHEERS!

Roland,

I think my hands work like they are 2:1 when I work on my models. After reading several threads on machine shop builds I'm thinking very hard on ways to avoid issues. I'm thinking of leaving two sides off and perhaps using brads in inconspicuous places to hold the main framework together.

I like how you supported the line shaft.

Mike

My issue is not the 'front to back' knock over type of issue, but rather the 'left to right and back again' constant shaking type issue! I am also working on a machine shop but no where the details of yours, I just love the look of the entire project. Russ

Thanks. I'm glad to know i'm not the only fumble fingered modeler out there. I will try to get some sort of backdrop for any future pictures.

Geezer is a little out of focus today as he tries to figure out who is tracking oil on his floor. He suspects Jerry.

Oh sh*t caught with dirty boots again!!!!

Nice details Roland.

Is that a spittoon there?? Geezer will think a pot to pee in better move it way from him.

Roland- coming along nicely even if I am not
at home to look over your shoulder. YUP!! Jerry
did it!!!The foot prints are a detail often overlooked - NICE!
On the 1:1 hands stuff....toss in "no peripheral vision
or depth perception" you have a reap party going on.
Keep up the good work my friend & keep the streets plowed
so I can get home.

I am just beginning to follow this. Actually, I am only on page 3 but I have a question about a picture on page 1 of the log loader.

I certainly do not want to sound like I am criticizing your work because I have very limited talents but here is the question:

With the log loader stationary and the track next to it ending where it does, and you have a string of log cars, how do you load the other cars behind the one you are currently loading?

Looks like you would have to pull the entire string out and shuffle the loaded car onto another track and do that each time you load a car.

I Know this is a trivial thing and I am amazed at your modelling ability. You have done a wonderful job and I an anxiously looking forward to reading every single page of this thread. Forgive me for being so picky and THERE MAY BE A LOGICAL REASON FOR THIS WHICH I AM TOTALLY UNAWARE OF.

Nice detail Roland.

As you think, so will you be.
