@Russ, @ Helmut,
thanks for your explanations!

Last weekend, the plexiglass cylinder for the well of the lifting bridge was rebuilt, as there was a mistake in the arrangement of the guide rollers.
In the following picture, two guide wheels were drawn on the right and left at the top of the lift cylinder.

At that time I had seen a total of four rolls on another schematic sketch. After that, I built my first shaft.

As far as the old condition!

When I had the first well ready for installation, I got exact drawings of the lifting bridge .
We can see, the four guide rollers were each offset by 45 from the version I built.

So changes were made in the 3D drawing and a new Plexiglas tube with 120mm outer diameter purchased ....

Now the new condition:

.... after looking at this tube again and again for several years, I have made it anew.

The four guide rollers are not drawn yet.

Schwimmer_56 (fspg2)

Schwimmer_58 (fspg2)

To make the four slots for the roller guides, I have made a small simplification.
At that time, I had laboriously turned the tube 90 each time, taking a close look at the cutter on positioned auxiliary lines ,
so I have positioned the tube in two 10mm thick MDF boards now. These had got a tight-fitting 120mm neckline.

After each milling pass, the entire unit was rotated 90 and placed in the two grooves of the base plate. A wooden staff and two small clamps held everything in position.

The plexiglass tube was installed in the system only as a trial. Now missing are the bricks, the guide profiles, as well as the surrounded MDF boards.

HI Bill,

Thank you for your feedback and the basket is woven from 0.2mm copper wire in 2 gorgeous relaxing days and then brooded.
The basket belongs to a crab cutter and serves there at the mast as a daily signal of trawling fishermen.

The twisting and turning of wire is about a third of the work, another third is needed for the coating, molding and dyeing of trunk and branches.

Helmut, That's a very good first tree! I need hundreds of bare winter trees for one side of my layout. I am planning on making a few wire trees that will get the attention of the viewer but the others will be less detailed so that there is a chance of completing them all.
I meant to ask earlier. Is that a 3D printed basket that the workers are using or is it a real basket?

Hello Lawston, in Germany needs to be worn in work without machines, on plots, no warning vests.

HI Russ, the workers are supposed to dig planting holes, for another greening.

Last episode from the series modeling with foam board, the flexible aspect, an unprecedented advantage.


I hope to have inspired you.

No green vests. That's a Health and Safety violation.  10 minutes in the penalty box (corner). Tongue
