Brian it IS good to hear from you... Set yourself up for success in ANY scale...
and to mangle the quote: "if you build it in TT... the few of us will come!"

All the Best...


Richard, you know I always listen closely to you, after all I think of you as a guru.

Angry, thank you. At the SherlineCNC group, the topic of wheel cutting has continued to advance; when able, time-wise, I think I can set up a wheel cutting operation for a reasonable expense, since I already have the equipment. At the least, such a Sherline set up could be a stand-in method for awhile. Steam locomotive wheels would require a separate procedure, but is doable, too. But, I keep telling myself, one thing at a time, one thing at a time, one thing. . . .

The old bull and the young bull stood on a hill, overlooking a lush valley where many females grazed. Excitedly, the young bull said, "Let's run down there and dance with one!" The old bull, sage in his years, said, "Son, let's walk down there and dance with them all."

I'm learning that steady progress, even though slow, is best.
