Achim that's some very fine work, but I can't seem to understand how you secured the rails to the base. Are they screwed to the base from the bottom? The eyelets are a nice touch. I like........... :praise2:

Hi Don, the holes in the black rectangle bar has been prepared in advance. I have put a 2 mm pin in and the handrail support will be glued with some normal silicon sealing mass. That will give enough hold, but in a case of emergency it can be removed without any damaging.

Hi everybody, I have cleaned my shop a bit and collected all remaining rubbish from this build in a family shot.
Here we have:
wrong made parts
set up parts
trials
remaining good parts (no big trouble during machining of the batch)
self made tools
jigs and other tooling
.......
I was a bit surprised about the amount of items.
I have build a box during the last two weekends, so I will be able to transport the engine to a possible show.
The final video is under construction, I have been not happy anymore with the quality of my discounter 50 Dollar/EUR/GBP camera and bought something better. Just learning to work with it.



Kind Regards
Achim

Yes, it's amazing how many things remain unused or discarded after a build.  Still, I never throw things away.  Just in case.

Hi everybody, this is my final posting for this build.
The useless remaining parts are in the bin now and I have space for a new project in my shop.
Thank you very much for watching and of course for all your comments and friendly words.
It is good to know, that there are people around the world understanding what you are doing.
The final video is part of this posting www.modelenginemaker.com/index.php?topic=3776.0
Have a nice Sunday.
