Very cool. I think the string method might work best for tinfoil... So it's kind of like an old fashioned loom, that presses the material eh?

I wonder if i could find some rollers for that sort of thing, i know someone with a lathe...

I am new to this website & found it by searching for corrugated metal roofing HO scale. Ironically I am building a roller press myself & plan on using aluminum soda cans as well. I enjoyed your article & looking forward to seeing your roller press. I am a self employed carpenter & work has been slow for the past few months. I have been cutting scaled lumber from my Poplar scraps & building a saw mill while I have been off. I enjoy scratch building & sharing any ideas with other modelers ( anything to keep the BIG boy companies from making so much money off of us ). I am in search of a machinest myself to mill a couple of rollers that mesh together without cutting the metal. Some of the oldtimer machinists I know have retired but I am looking at some local machine shops that don't need a Harvard grad school drawing. I am excited about this website & looking forward to learning more about it. Thanks again for your info & have a good week. Jim

I havent posted anything here in a while simply because...........I forgot too ROFL

The now semi infamous TEK32 Speedway has been completed for awhile now and it is time to Move On...................It is Coming Out.

It was Fun to Build and I learned several things in the process...........One day I WILL Build another but it will have to wait until I have a Building built for not only IT, But also for Trains............I'm working on the building part now, designing it to meet several needs.

So, Heres a Quick last look at TEK32.....................Time to get on with building my Exhibition Logging Railroad Now........( wifey thinksI am nuts....build something and then tear it down..........build something else then tear it down......she thinks I cant make up my Mind & that I am freaking :Crazy:   :) )









BACK TO TRAINS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

An FYI for consideration: If youve never built a scenic Race course, I'd have to reccomend it as being ALOT of fun & a great distraction when you need a break from Model Trains but not necessarily from Modeling.

While there are many similarities, the final product is a real Kick to operate, particullarly if you get rid of the Magnets that hold the cars glued to the track & learn to Drift around the corners........

The Danger is that your freinds ( and yourself) may like it too much...:):):)

TEK 32 SPEEDWAY.................IS NOW RETIRED!!!!! :bow::bow::bow:
