Hi Chris , some of those lines will be about 5 thou thick in scale size !!!!  I have now attached the rear part that is just a flat piece of bar stock so quite easy . When i screw the pieces together rather than drilling a clearance hole and spotting through then tapping one piece, ! firmly grip the pieces together and tap them all. This holds them all together. I have cut a slot in the clamps so the individual parts are really firmly gripped.  the next bit is accurately fitting the other moulding part.!!!!

Very nice!!


For the lines, maybe do them with a fine line paint pen or pigmented ink?

More work on the bearing block ....I am trying out with this one just to see how it is best to do it .........The block is filed out to receive the bearing holder and silver soldered in place...the cap is built up from bar and to save heat I have sawn slots in the bar to stop the heat travelling too much. The cap is then filed to see how it fits.  The next ones will be made properly now I know the best way to do it.  so this will go in the rejected parts box !!!

Willy, those are the wrong sort of machine to be surrounded by!

Get well soon, and take care of yourself. :ThumbsUp:
