LOL!

Thanks guys!

Alwin I didn't polish it so much as clean it up with a wire wheel.

Some of my Brass stock has been laying around a while and is tarnished and dirty and has to be cleaned before soldering.

Besides...it looks cooler that way! ;)

Not so shiny anymore.

I re-did this paint 4 times till I was happy with it.:bang:

The solder hose was a victim of collateral damage.

Easy enough to replace.



Cheers

Dave

Tank looks the part Dave. How about an additional hose to siphon water from a nearby creek ?

The siphon itself would be near the boiler, and the hose should have a conical screen on the creek end to keep twigs etc. out.

Herbie my friend your Beautiful!
( I bet you don't get THAT much!):)

I've been trying to think of things for them to have on hand that would be either lying about, or hanging on the posts.

Besides the usual shovel, broom, etc.

I have some peaveys I can use and I think a Big honking wrench would be something to have near.
( I just did a google on the word peavey to be sure I spelled it right and found something else to make.) lol

You wouldn't have a photo of a conical version would you?

I have a photo somewhere in my collection of a Climax loco sitting streamside using a siphon.

Might end up using up half the morning trying to find that though....Maybe google images would pop one up I'll have to try.

Sierra west has some O scale cable spools but I have not found anything in HO that is not attached to another casting.

Working on a scratch build of a pair of them.
Something to clutter up the area around the boom mounts.

Thanks for the idea Buddy!

Cheers

Dave

Hey Dave

That is one nice sawmill. I don't believe I've ever seen anyone do one of these "Master Creations Coon Gap sawmill" and finish it.

Excellent job.

Dave, you make me blush!

I know that I have a pix around somewhere, but---

We beautiful people make up for it by misplacing things

I saw one some years back, probably at Cass, and as I recall, it was a sheet brass truncated cone, about 3" diameter on the large end, where the hose attached, and 1 1/2''on the small end, and about 6" long. It had about 3/16" holes, in staggered rows, with about 1/16" metal between the holes. I don't think that the 1 1/2" end cap had any holes in it (because it might rest on the stream bottom?) I'm sure that they came all different sizes and shapes.

And now, if you will excuse me, it's time for my pedicure.

Handsome

Thank you Jerry!

I only found a few myself.

I did a Google image search hoping to find some detailed photos to assist in the build.

The instructions leave much to be desired.

Sometimes you just gotta wing it. :shades:
