Over the years I have built many projects, from Toys and Joys the last several I have put on my projects page here.
The last couple I bought were the John Deere B and the new excavator. I had built the original excavator
and given it away so I thought I would build the new one? The JD B build went great.
I Started the New excavator wow several errors on those plans? Sent a email to Toys and Joys almost three weeks ago
with my address, phone # , email address, and so on with no response
I went to Toys and Joys forum where I used to be registered,and now while I do have a email address there I cannot post as that password was on a long gone computer?
Anyone out there that has built the new Excavator want to compare notes?

Dee1, I made a SketchUp version of the New Excavator a while back. I can’t remember what issues I had with it. If you are into SketchUp at all, seeing as how you have bought the plans, I can make the model including the scanned plans available if you don’t mind PMing me with your email address. I can upload it to DropBox and provide you with the link.

I feel sorry for you Dee. Also in the hydraulic crane 126 drawing (release 1) where some annoying faults. I asked T and J for a better drawing, but never got one.

I hope, and I’m almost sure there are LJ fellows to help you. I have seen in my dropbox that LittleBlackDuck is working on it, and it would’t not suprise me that he is doing this for you.

Thanks Guys and Gals
I did download something from LBD I believe and now have really cool big pictures that I am sure I can do many things with?
Dutchy the track pins were not any problem my issues were clearance issues with the carrier rollers to the underside of the tracks , and also the bottom rollers not reaching the rails of the tracks?
I understand its not a perfect world but you would think something should work?

LBD (AKA Alex) Would you be so kind and look at the SU drawing if T and J made a drawing fault about this?

Gents, I did the SU drawing a while back. Can anyone point me in the right direction to minimise where I have to look?
