I can order for you a set of strips or, if you prefer, make a drawing for you so you can upload to Shapeways and order directly.

My drawing is this

P2070209 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

The previous version had only one spacing so was only possible to do this type of fence:

The second version contains two types of strips. Actually all the same sizes but some have a half spacing between the holes so this type of fence can be made:

The set in the drawings is priced by Shapeways a couple of cents under 8euro. But with posting costs (to me) and local taxes goes to almost 13euro.

Thanks Daniel, your photos make it look doable in my 1/2" scale too. My eye sight is not what it used to be either. I think this is something I could still handle.

Sure.
I forgot your scale is much more comfortable than my 3/8" scale which seems to be surreptitiously shrinking through the years.

Keep us posted about it!!!

Mr. Wallet's brother, who lives over here, is telling me to try scratch building a small fence before spending down my vast fortune.

What about the more complicated fences and railings. Are these 3D printed?

Yes, Larry.
Most are 3D printed and you know you can always coun't on me if you want any at cost or if you want to get the drawings for specificaly 1/2" scale ones.

Now, here how I would make the simple ones by hand:

1)
A block of wood and a strip glued, screwed or pinned on it

P2070328 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

2)

holefor taking the drill at work and, at the desired distance for the bars, a hole where you insert a pin. Experience is telling me the pin should be something as 0,1mm smaller than the drill so you avoid figting against it to remove the drilled strip after every hole.

P2070329 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

P2070330 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

3)

Slide the strip of material and do the first hole whereve you want

P2070331 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

4)
P2070332 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

5)
Move the first hole to the register pin and proceed drilling all other holes the same way

P2070333 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr



P2070334 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr


If your material is styrene or other soft plastic be sure you work at low speed to avoid the plastic melting.
Also ensure the drill is clean after every hole because the rests of plastic on the drill may cause distortion to next hole once the plastic of the material is warm and confronted with thge colder bits around the drill. (You can imaging how I've learnt that!)

I hope that helps.

If it's too boring you can always make just one length and use it as a pattern for a silicone rubber mold and cast as many as you want(but my nose is telling me you would need to pass a drill through every hole to clean them.

Oh, yes: for adding the rods I did it by eye and then, used two pieces of whood as spacers to ensure the distance and alignment of the horizontal drilled strips before glueing.

Thank you Daniel, I have downloaded your photos to my computer. I won't need to make any fences or gates until I start building the 'Big Stone Mountain Lodge'. That is still a ways off. I will most likely fool around with a short section of fencing though.

I forgot to mention the most essential: the jig MUST be steady fastened to the drill press until all the work is done.
Otherwise you would end on your knees, trying to find the damned holes under the forniture!!! :bang::bang::bang:

Larry

Mr. Wallet wants me to send you this film because he knows for sure, if you don't have a drill press already, his brother will love it.
