" are you going to model that building big job."


Hi Tony :wave:


I think in HO the size might be AT LEAST one ping-pong table ! ;)

In 1:35 it could take my entire back garden !! :shocked:





Brown & Sharpe, December 1940


The lady on the steps looks like she has a big fur collared coat on, must have been chilly !

Busy busy busy, outside the Brown & Sharpe offices.

Since my Browne & Sharpe was dug up out of the ground...

...you certainly couldn't describe it as M.I.B ! :shocked:

More like R.I.P in fact !!


It is quite possible though, that it was originally shipped, but not buried, in a wooden box...

...just like this one. :bg:

Don't knock the Rizla/ZigZag measuring tool, I've remanufactured or repaired many parts of full size locos using that particular precision method and they are all still in revenue service !

If NASA had stuck to time honoured engineering practise they wouldn't have screwed up the optics on a $multi zillion space telescope.

Yup Si, that little 'mike' is the real thing. As Comrade Helmut undoudtedly knows, there is a proper way of zeroing and adjusting them but you need the correct tools. Don't hammer the bloody thing, it never did you any harm.

Due to a recent even more dramatic event I have had to give up all railway modelling for now but still look in on FR in a spare minute, I couldn't resist this thread !

Regards,    Michael

Hi Michael or 'mike' :wave: ;)


Couldn't agree more ol' bean !


The Zig-Zag man is your friend ... No 'pirate' jobs when the Zig-Zags are at hand !! ;)


Come on dude ... a lil' tap with the ol' ball-pein, never hurt a stalwart like the B.S. No.8 :shocked:


It's as 'dead on' as you'll ever need it anyways.


I'll leave the "proper way of zeroing and adjusting" to all the 'rich kids' out there ! :cool:


:moose:


Si.


Look in more often Michael, we miss you, you are always a RIVETING READ ! :brill:

You are welcome, Si.  Always glad to keep folks away from the telly.

The kitchen remodel has really messed up hobby plans.  I am very anxious to get started on the shop rehab.  I am really looking forward to playing with the Atlas 618 (branded Craftsman, but it is an Atlas) lathe I have just acquired. 

I really wanted the Myford 7, but everybody selling one (very few) wanted three prices and almost all were located on your side of the pond.  Getting it here would have cost another small fortune. 

That old Brown & Sharp looks like a mighty fine instrument.
