Re: The Reading and Squamish Light Railway Stock Thread

Great looking tank wagon. That 3D printed tank looks high quality. No sign (to me) or ridges or strata. Have you done a lot of filling and rubbing down or are 3D printers getting better?

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Great looking wagons. At least you (and we) will know the planks are individual!

My lawn is like a sponge to walk on. I can only remember one occasion previously when it's been as wet for so long.

Re: Workshop/shed

Great job on the shed Rik. The insulation you are using is what I had in the new shed I bought at, blooming heck, two address's ago. It's brilliant stuff. I had a lovely warm shed with very little heating on in the winter months, although in the summer both doors needed to be opened and the windows...

Re: Workshop/shed

Coming together nicely Rik. I agree with you on the subject of wall lights and accessible sockets. If you have a central light source you can end up working in your own shadow at the workbench. One thing I do prefer is to have all the electrics lights and socket supplied through a single double pol...

Re: Workshop/shed

Interested in the high level power leads.....? For wall mounted spotlights (thanks to IKEA) over the workbench. These days I need a lot of light when working on small details ..... or maybe I need new glasses? The ones midway up the wall will be for double sockets just above the workbench so I don'...

Re: Workshop/shed

Now working on the interior. Funny you should mention foamboard, Andrew..... S0061580.JPG . The insulation I'm using is a sort of foamboard - foam between layers of foil. Not cheap but as my missus says, you're only going to do it once (unless of course I have a cunning plan!). This is then clad wit...

Re: Workshop/shed

Useful tips, thanks, Peter.
I've already got plans for a verandah with some decking. However, that will have to wait for funds to replenish. I like the idea of a shelf and wood store. I don't remember seeing your multifuel stove - but then I've not visited you during the winter months.
