First thing does any one have some tips on making little bitty axial???
I really need it for the pivot points on the Push Bars and where they hook up to the wheels.
I just didn’t like the way the cow catcher came out so gave it a second try.
I used the same trick I used for the wheels, cutting a grove for the small wood pieces to be glued in, this way they stay in place and can’t move or lean over and just look wrong.
Here’s how it worked out for me.
You’ve seen this before but some may not have so.
I don’t worry where I get started just need some groves to put the slats in.
Spacer in set fence take out space make cut and start all over again.
After I get it all put together then I cut and sand up close to the cow catcher teeth.
Once the groves are cut, I cut the board in half and glue it up making sure the groves match up.
As I glued it up I also glued the middle and biggest grill part this helped to line and square it up for the rest of the parts.
Just a little bigger but turned out much cleaner looking.
Next I played with making a chimney.
Remember that wasted day well it wasn’t wasted after all I drilled out the middle and made my smoke stack with it. lol
Well that just might get er done at least for today.
That’s all folks
