« Part 189: Reading Train Got the boiler under control to day. #4 1/2 Part 190 of Toy Construction series Part 191: Gatto Reading Train Building The Wheels #7 »

After being in the Hospital for 5 days with a leg infection that has been slowing me way down, I’m back!!!

And man have I been itching to get back at it.
The main train parts are pretty close to being done, after a Dr. visit tomorrow the wheels will get a looking at.

I’ve been on the out look for a small glue bottle as all from HD and Lowe’s are way big, then it hit me I’ve been throwing away the best free bottles, just what I was needing, the used up Gorilla Super glue bottles!!!

May be able to use more wood glue now that I got something that gives me just the right amount.

This is a maple and walnut build, with a touch a oak.
