Hi Rich,
 Looking good!

Your wingnuts are just what I need, except mine will be wing bolts! They will replace the wing bolts I use to hold my tram in its transport frame & which are hard on the fingers, thanks!!

Cheers Kerrin
Get excited and make something!

Hi

Thanks cnr6400, Kim and Kerrin :ThumbsUp:

Some more little jobs done today

Both rear cab supports and brackets fitted



Some fire clay in the smokebox to seal the gaps



2 of the screws around the smoke box have been removed, 1 each side, and the holes drilled and tapped right through to attach the smoke box to the front of the boiler with a couple of longer screws. A couple of small screws is all thats needed



The brake stand bolts through the running board.



It didn't seem sturdy enough so I have made a stiffening bracket from a piece of steel angle



finally today I have given the cab and the side tanks a quick spray to tidy up a few scratches

Cheers

Rich
