I've been absent from the Forum so I could get my income tax done.

Bob, you're a lucky guy, only one tax. I've got several.

Holy cow, all these machines look great, Bob! And you've done an excellent job fitting everything into such a tight space.

Bill, Frank, Ray, and Rich, thanks for posting.

Bill - it sure has been fun.
Frank - well actually two, state and federal. I used to have four, personal and business
both state and local, not sorry to see those two gone.
Ray - I would not want to be in there with all the machines going.
Rich - no OSHA in 1941. I love to see movie clips of those steeplejacks walking around
with no safety equipment back building the skyscrapers in NY.

Back to work on Terrells.

Bob

Here it is with the boxes and toothpicks installed, I'm not sure of the final length of
the bottom track. I am making the packing table and then I will be able to set them all in place
to determine the proper length.

This photo is larger then the actual model.

Dave, Greg, Pete, Ray, and Russ, thank you all for visiting and commenting.

I made the little packing table and installed it along with installing the boxing unit. I
also hooked up the toothpick supply pipe to the hopper. Here's a few shots.







Russ, I'm happy to hear that this project has been fun to watch because it sure has been
fun to build, and I'm not done yet. Have to make a bunch of boxes to clutter up the
packing area, do a little something for the shop foreman's area, and move back outside to
take the sawdust pipe up to the roof and make several other roof details, and I haven't
even mentioned lighting yet.

When I started this build I had no idea of how involved it would get.

Bob
