Man that's nice Jerry!

If Fredric's edited photo had some metal shavings on it, I doubt anyone would not think it was the real thing.

Just a picture of a rough placement of were the machines will be placed.

Haven't figured out where the workbenches and cabinets will go yet.

In case your interested it's a space 5"x12".
I made a plaster base with individual pads for each machine. Wood will go over the plaster except for the pad area.

Any comments are always welcome.

It's worth thinking about how the belt drive shafts would run, if you're planning to model that. The drill press that's at a right angle to the other tools would require more complex drives. I'd suggest rotating that 90 degrees and then you can run two shafts the long way. What are you using for a power source for the belting? (It wouldn't be unusual for the boiler to be in a separate building, and you could put the engine in with the boiler as long as you figure out how the engine would drive the belt shaft.

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.

Very nice.

I was going to mention the belt drive but I see it's already been covered.

Oh yea, and the floors too clean.


As you think, so will you be.
