The wheels are on and I just need to add tails, horns, ears and maybe a little paint. Then add eyes and hooks and make them into the circus train.
This has been a fun way to learn about the tools and techniques. The band saw and drill press are both new-ish and hardly used so it is fun to try them out, learn how to use them. I need to adjust something when cutting wheels out with the hole saw as they almost all stared smoking at every speed setting on the drill press.
I need a better way to sand these too. A hand sheet sander, a disc sander head on the drill press and even a barrel bit sander on the drill press all worked for parts but not all. Maybe I just need to be more patient and do it by hand! I did read about a way to mount the wheels on to a jig for the drill press so sanding them down was a snap.
