My compressor man informed me A larger compressor would be required for this sort of job - so a twin cylinder Ingersoll-Rand industrial type of about the early 1900s has has now replaced the first one - most parts from the scrap box  and trial fit of most parts shown

Well, I guess you will now have a spare compressor for some future project or maybe that smaller one can sit nearby, abandoned, after having been used when the mine was smaller.

Bill - yes I think compressor no1 is due for the scrap pile at the back of the shed
next pic is the start of the open frame electric drive motor - Acrylic tube - Evergreen tubes and bits from the scrap box

Mr Russ are you still upset about me giving "the Narrow Gauge & Short-line Gazette a bad review" the latest one the colour shots are a a bit better but I still rate it "Crap"and still will not reorder it - spend my money on Evergreen !!
More pics of threader machine
 All done -but I think the large cog wheel needs the teeth re-doing or re-teething !! make the profile larger -so its off to the gold bank and order some more EverGreen Strip

I was never upset about your giving the Gazette a bad review; what's more, your modeling may be too good for its pages.

Want to know the most frequent criticism I heard about the models I consider good? "Intimidating". Yes, hobbyists actually were put off by models as outstanding as those you guys build. Maybe that's one reason models of such high quality rarely appeared or appear in the Gazette and other magazines.

We're now down to a very small handful of contributors to this forum. When somebody asks to "join", I always request a couple of photos of his work and information about his interests. One in about ten replies and I never again hear from the rest.

If I see this here, I have to say that in contrast to the model railway literature, I get excellent quality here.
