    I use hemostats to add tension to truss rods. Usually I weave a single strand of monofilament. But sometimes I can't do that, and somewhere I have a photo of a small flat car with -8- hemostats holding the truss rods.



    A hemostat is heavier than this lock-channel tweezer, and that's a consideration.

      Dave,

      Thanks for the step by step account of your build.

      The coaling shed is looking great! I like the paper brackets and how you colored them. The rivet details came out well.

      How about using an artist's charcoal stick to color the inside of the shed? They get everything very dirty. (Ask me how I know)

      I have the 1:29 scale plans for this shed in a PDF file. This is one of the plans I might use for a coaling station in Z scale.

      Scott
