Jerry, just found this thread, the stud walls look very impressive, not to mention all the machinery.

Jerry,

Nice frame work. Can't wait to see the magic of getting the machinery in there.

Thanks Philip.

I've been working on making a jig for my windows. Will see how that goes.

Very nice framing job, Jerry. Will you let the framing show on the interior?

Hi Jerry, I haven't had the chance to keep up with the wonderful work your demonstrating here in your thread lately.
Great looking framing! You should think about making one of those sidewalls removable, so you can show off, and photograph all of those fantastic machines that will be inside.
Keep up the great work!

Yes Bruce you will be able to see the framing inside when its done. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Greg I've been thinking about having the front wall so it could be removed.

Morning everyone

Tom asked me if I could do a picture of the jig I'm using for my windows so here it is.

Basically I copied what Ken Hamilton did.

http://public.fotki.com/khamilton/models/model_how-to/how_to_build_window/










I used 1x10 & 1x4 O-Scale for the casings first picture.

For the sashes I'm using 1x4 O-Scale bottom/glass/top second picture.

When I do the next step the mullions I'll use 1x2 HO Scale.

I need to order more glass it isn't as easy as it looks.

Comments always welcome.


Jerry
