    Catching up, I thought your Rooster pole work and explanation was terrific. Another fun project to check out and learn.

    Louis,

    What's the purpose other than sealing the wood disc with the mod podge? And why mod podge over other products? Thanks

    I painted/sealed the wooden disc with Mod-Podge as seen in the left of the picture below. After it dried, you can see the finished results on the right side of the picture. And now, I’ll have to construct the bracing that will go up and around the wooden disc, built up off of the bottom brace.

    As the others have already mentioned, Louis you are doing amazing work here. Always a pleasure to see what you're up to. Also, when Glen H. offered you those 50' flat cars, that would have been ok with you're slicing & dicing experience. A thought to consider if adding more cars.

    Here, the next progress step shown, I had to make-up a shipping brace from stripwood for the log disconnect trucks for transporting. This is the bottom support brace I’ll start with, and build off of this.

    Now for the next progress, I’m going to seal the wooden disc with Mod-Podge, and get the wooden disc ready for the next bracing construction, where I have to build up, around, and hold the wooden disc in place for shipment.

    Really neat adaptation of the Kadees for the rooster pole. Another nifty project innovation.

    I'm all for using what you got, but also wonder if somebody had Kadee shelf couplers laying around (#118 or #119)

    would the shelf also hold the pole couplers from dropping through the disconnect mounted couplers?


    Bill, Bill, Bill, you are an amazing guy! I’ve never seen the #118 SF coupler, and now that you bought it to my attention, I’ve looked up what I could about it, and it does seem to simplify making the rooster poles. I’ll have to get a set of the #118 SF couplers and try it out for myself. From what I’ve found about them, the #118 SF double shelf coupler is a totally different type of coupler, and are made to actual prototype scale. The #118 SF coupler looks over scale because it's simply a larger prototype coupler, says Kadee. The coupler is fully functional, and will not slip up or down out of the opposing coupler. The Standard head, #5 coupler, seems to be completely compatible from what I’ve read. However, the actual coupler head of the #118 is larger than the #5 coupler head and, because of the larger head, may have certain mounting limitations.

    So, I’m going to get a set and give it a try for future rooster poles. If the #118 SF works, it will save a lot on #5 coupler modifications. Thank you very much for your observation and suggestion Bill.

    Louis, I just "disc"overed your newest project here.

    You must have the largest collection of miniature logging equipment in the world!

    And If not the largest, certainly the most interesting collection that's for sure.

    Your latest addition to your collection is already looking fabulous!

    Greg Shinnie


    Thank you Greg for your comments. Not sure if I have the largest collection, but I hope I have the most different and interesting logging equipment. That's me, the most unusual equipment, the happier I am. :up:

    I like that rooster pole, Lewis. I have some long Kadees I can sacrifice to make a couple poles for my disconnects.

    George


    Thanks George, they are a sharp looing item in the logging business. Where we don't use link and pin, this was a good way to use Kadee's to match-up to what we use. [:-cowboy]

    It’s taking several looks to decipher what I’m seeing...[:-cyclops]


    Thank you Karl. And yes, even with pictures to follow, it can be quite confusing to understand. I didn't invent it, so I too had to figure what the article was trying to say.
