Here we are getting to an other part where the dad determines the success of the outcome of the race for your child. We need to look at the weight. It can not go over 5 oz. So I get out my postal scale and get it as close as possible.
Sorry about the tung, this kid takes after his dad.
I had to drill out some cars, others needed a lot of pennies added. (This is cutting into the grocery bill)
I could use a good October beer at this point. 24 wheels. First I would clean the riding surface, that meets the track with a utility knife. Than take the sharp corners off and polish it up with 1500 grit sand paper.
This is the setup I use to clean the axles and wheels. I use the poor man’s vice on my workbench, so I can work closer to the object.
I take a small file and clean the corner of the axle and make the head a little smaller to reduce friction. Than I continue to get rid of the scratches and imperfections by using first 320 grit, 600 grit and 1500 grit. Than polish it off with a polish.
Here an update on the painting of the colorful bunch of cars. I thought you want to know.
Thanks for checking it out and all your wonderful notes.
Be well, Pb.
