Coming along nice Marty.  If I missed it I'm sorry but do you have in mind what kind of shop this is?  I mean is it attached to a RR shop, or just general machine shop?  Only reason I ask is if it were a general shop you should make all the cool dividing accessories and other stuff!  A RR shop would likely not have had such stuff.

Paul
I was planning a RR shop and now that you mention the tooling
Definitely! But I would like to do some of it.
Still need a steady rest on the lathe.

Russ
Yes, making everything so far.
That was kind of the focus doing these machines and in 1/16
Trying to stay challenged.

Thanks!

As you know, I really like the way you work with metal. Those turnings are gorgeous and the whole model looks good so far. -- Russ

Thanks guys.
I have always enjoyed using a lathe, wood or metal.

In the link Paul posted I found a neat
"drip pot" I thought it would be a cool detail.
So far;

Hello Marty,

where is the problem, I love brass as you also can see in my work.

In the metal parts like me even better.

Just cant seem to get styrene to take a curve and not break
when i use MEK to "glue" it.
Hence the brass belt guard.
