« Part 135: Starting to look like a train Part 136 of Toy Construction series Part 137: Got the Funnel Fitted & the Domes Too »

Got started on the wheels and brackets for them.
I again made the spokes like on the last train.
Then while I was at it and had the tools set up cut out wheels for two more cars.
Here's how I did the wheels in my last build.
This time I used the miter saw to cut the groves for the spokes was much easier.

Great job on the wheels #4... however, that is now expected…

But… and a big BUT (no, not a “missus butt”)... the funnel on it’s side will not cut the mustard… unless you are pouring out the excess steam!

Hey #4... it is your picture after all!

Looks like the quality of your wackie-backie is not as good as mine….

I didn’t know what a funnel was, till you started making fun of mine. LOL
I build them I don’t pay much attention to the name of the parts.
So I guess the one in the picture is a new fangled screw funnel Much more aerodynamic.

So you used the same technique to cut the grooves in the wheels that you used in your latest siding technique for the cattle car? You still added the glued on pattern I assume?

Belg I found a picture of a train wheel with clearly defined spooks and glued this on the round wood blank then with a hold down placed the blank to be cut on the Miter saw.
