Hey Bernd! Welcome to our little party. I'm very interested to see the chassis design you come up with. Going to check out your site now...

Definitely a very neat website. It is nice to have another "multi-scaler" here.

Bernd wrote:Thanks Rob. So what do you do for machining. I spent 30 some years in the machine tool industry working for a machine tool company that manufactured gear cutting machinery. Company's name is Gleason Works of Rochester, New York. Plus I took machine shop back in high school. Dad was a tool and die maker. Learned a lot from him.

I wouldn't really call myself a machinist but I did pickup a cnc router a few years ago and have been making a few things with it, http://www.ttnut.com/my-new-toy-and-project-t1462.html. There is another member here, Connriver (SP?), who has a cnc mill and there may be one other with a mill but can't think who right now.

I haven't been able to perfect my trucks. Somewhere in the little buggers there is some resistance that puts too much load on the motor.

Assuming you already have a Cad program that will produce DXF files, I would suggest taking a look at CamBam for creating your G-Code. It's easy to learn and seems to be a very stable program with consistent output.

My opinion - structures. Especially dwelling houses.

And also steam locomotives.

Bernd, there is a big push right now for rail. The only thing we have available to us is Tillig from Europe and they're a not really prototypical - it's like code 100 rail.

After that it's a good mech we can use for various locos and finally freight cars.
