    Thanks Jon, I already made a grinder at work today following your method. Except I used steel rod (it was what was handy)

    Unfortunetly I don't have a camera that can take good pictures up close, but I'll see what I can do in the future.

    Thanks for all your help with the interior. I thought I'd show you how it turned out:

    HO machine shop tools

    The engine house looks good, and I like those scratched grinders. Preiser has an HO kit for a metal lathe and drill press which are very well done. They're easy to miss in the Walther's catalogue, though, 'cause the kit is listed under the military models section instead of superdetails. Here are the ones I built.

    Thanks, but the lathe and drill pres that you mentioned are in the bottom right corner of the enginehouse, it's just a little hard to see them clearly with the picture that I took.

    Now I see 'em there. It'll be a good pay off for visitors when they peer in through the windows.
