    Nice to see the Sun again.

    We were looking thru E-bay lastnigt looking for one single item. So far no luck finding it, but did get a great deal on some diecast cars.

    Soon we are off to Downtown Willoughby and Stewarts Hobbies.

    [​IMG] WTB Tinker toy pieces
    [​IMG] I need some tinker toy parts...a couple of round pieces and some shafts for a saw mill I am making.

    Can anyone help me out?

    The idea is to use them for pulleys and heat a hack saw blade and bend it to fit over them like a band saw.

    sfarme321@aol.com

    Iwill pay postage and what ever you think is reasonable.

    Boy y'all been active on here, seems many pages have been added since I last checked in, I thought it was yesterday.

    With all the talk about building structures for layouts not yet built don't make the mistake I did. I built a factory with loading dock and attached office anticipating having space on the then planned layout. When done with benchwork and track down I found there wasn't a space large enough for the factory. It was made from DPM panels and when I was able to saw them appart I ended up with a couple of building fronts and complete buildings.

    [​IMG]Oh, hi Roger ! Yes, we were pretty active on here last night ![​IMG] I learned how to make the words real big ! [​IMG] I know what you mean about space, it goes fast. It's real easy to make things big. That's a great alternative we now have, to cut a building up & just use the fronts. They even sell just the fronts now. I think the fronts combined with a nice backdrop picture is a good way to go too, in a lot of situations. Thanks, John

    Classic!!
    I had a space problem once with an engine house. It fit ok but there was not enough room for the switches into it.

    It was a two bay building and a turn table would not work.

    Gil, I had the same problem with an ICS (I think) two bay engine house. When I checked my engines, and knew I probably wouldn't get any much longer. I cut a bay out of the length. Looks great, and gave the room needed. Even if you do have longer engines it was not uncommon for the proto's to leave the tender sticking out when they built longer engines.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    where the temp is 51 and heading to 60 with Clear Blue Sky's

    The big lake is keeping us warmer than southern Ohio. :cool:

    Been reading some great reports about YORK. I am surprised about K-Line reports after seeing there last catalog or should I say flyer. Hope they make it and can do what they say. :)

    Today we are doing birthday parties for my wife and step-daughter. One at the Big 50 and the other at 24.
