Re: bambuko loco works 0-6-2 (Fowler)

You are doing such a nice job, put a grate in and burn the black stuff. Thank you. I would like to do it indeed :thumbright: but this particular model would need too much butchery to rear of the cab to permit easy access for the shovel.

Re: Llewellyn Loco Works #1

A superb piece of turning work, you should be very pleased with yourself Dazza. One thing puzzles me, what is the purpose (if any) of the O ring on the parent stock? Thanks and I was wondering if some one would notice and ask. It works like a little dam wall , it stops the coolant flowing towards t...

Re: Llewellyn Loco Works #1

Squeeze the tweezers too hard and "Ping" , two were teleported to another time and dimension last night. One was ruined, too tight a fit. But the last one was made in 15 mins, I am getting across the process and feel. 5 to go. I use a sharp centre pop to make them a press fit. The hinges will be si...

Making tools to make the 1.60mm diameter rivets for the smoke door hinges. I will not be surprised if this does not work, but I have a few approaches to try with this method. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49080345873_9cd9091df1_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49080869561_e9b5a01a58_...

Maybe the type of oil. Perhaps some good thick steam oil, close to boiling and then dunk the stinking hot wheel . 8)
