Jeeze Chuck, your work reminds me more and more of that fella that got to be well known for painting a ceiling Smiley

I fear that Chuck will even not remain at this incredible level.
So we have no choice but to humbly wait for a new update.

Thanks very much for the nice words! This has been a lot of fun so far.

I have installed the rear drum brake spring thingy, and the gear “guard”. The spring bracket was bent up from .032 x .125 K and S brass stock, and the guard was made from .01 x .188 Evergreen styrene. I cut the strip to length and heat formed it in boiling water while it was taped over an empty soda can, which just happened to be the right diameter. I bashed it up a bit; prototype photos show them bent up pretty well, not sure if by logs or brawling loggers.

This side is done, now to finish the operator controls on the other side.





This side still has a ways to go.

More detail at its finest.

Chuck it's getting really hard to fine words that describe your work.

So true! I guess we'll have to invent new words for it... I suggest: Absotively spectabulous!

Thanks guys! Peter, good eye, yes I added another oil wash. The cables are about where I want them. The finish is still a work in progress.

During the long race Sunday, I finished and installed the main drum friction device and brake pedal. The red thingus is the travel stop for the (eventual) friction lever, and was copied from the machine at Willets, Ca. It was made from styrene.
