Thanks very much! I think it’s been over 14 years since my last gazette article. Just a brief description of “3D printing” brass parts. I thought it would be interesting to folks who haven’t heard of it.

Also got some bench time, finally starting on the main drum. 25’ of stainless line is kinda heavy all wrapped up in one place! And then there are the 144 gear tooth faces to polish. Undecided

The article is about using 3D printing to produce brass detail parts, such as Chuck has done on his tugger hoist.

Russ, those eaves and rafter tails do add to the model. It will be good to see the loading dock and stairs add the finishing bits to this one.

Can someone tell those of us who don't get the Gazette what the article is about? Is it this Fordson tugger hoist, or some other project?
Whatever it is, Congratulations, Chuck!

A friend told me about Chuck's article. Bob discontinued my Gazette subscription after somebody incorrectly reported a comment I made on this forum, maybe in the "private" Blue Note Room, about his magazine.

I had written, as an honest analysis, that changes in the hobby and, to some extent, Bob's complacence had left the Gazette a caricature of what it used to be. The tattletale told Bob I called his magazine a "comic book". Bob never read the post and never phoned me. Instead he asked Mal Ferrell to call me and, despite my clarification, I never received another Gazette.

Cliques, politics, and childish behavior are symptoms of a dying industry and are the reasons I stopped attending the NG Convention years before I stopped publishing.

Hello Russ,

even when watching the enlarged images, the paper as such can not be seen, I like it.
