Upon closer examination, Bob is right on the drill press alignment... Sorry to spin up on that....

Chuck Doan told me he uses drafting mylar for belts in O scale. Bob Boudreau used masking tape for his HO scale machine shop. (There are wonderful photos on that build in the ModelersGuild pages on Facebook.)

I agree, but I see the drill press, lathe and tread cutter aliened for a left -right power shaft while the sloter and mill machine are aliened for a perpendicular power shaft. The machine need to be of set off a bit (as opposed to being lined up straight)to allow for the countersaft pulleys and other hardware.

The machines look great.

Just my 2cts.

Thanks everyone for looking in.
I've a long time to go before the belts and drive shafts are done. Thanks for the input on that stage.

Yes Rick your right I forgot to add the Chuck Doan broom.

Just in case you guys are worried.
Rotating a belt drive 90 degrees is not a big deal.
it was done all the time.
Machine placement to make the work flow "work" and adequate room is the important issue.

Good job Jerry!

Jerry. I really like your idea for the base. Waiting to see it after it is planked. At some point I will have to put a base under my machinery and this gives me something to consider.

Just catching up, that is quite an impressive amount of machinery you have there, now I'm looking forward to the building construction.

Jerry Ė you need to post more of your progress photos and spend less time at the beach.

Just so Frank and the rest of you guys think I spend all my time at the beach. I did manage to do these in about 1 1/2 hrs.
Not much but something!!!

Hey, I saw that.

I forgot you were building the machine shop. I guess you're at the little work bench in front of the window! How's that train room coming?

About the same as when you were here!!! Slow that I am.
Hopefully I'll get it finished this winter.
You do know that word right "WINTER"

The benches are fantastic. You can have that figure you asked me about scratching his head looking for his lost wrench.
