Re: Bigelov's projects

The large curved handrail was bent around a drill bit. It is just over 1/2" diameter, but the nickel silver is very springy, so I had to use a 1/4" drill! First I bent the end 90° and then held that against the drill while using a fingernail to form it around the curve, then bend the other end and ...

Re: Bigelov's projects

The wire work is very good. :thumbup: I've made some grab irons from brass 0.012 stock and 0.010 stock, it can only be more difficult with the 0.008 wire. 2 questions...Did you use brass or stainless steel wire?? and, the curved grab irons on the sides, what did you use to form the grab irons??

Re: HP products casted parts

Thanks Ron! I wasn't sure, I have a couple engines with it mounted in the opposite direction and they have a wire formed to replicate the linkage, it runs up to the cab. But those are small, 0-6-0's and Atlantics if I remember right. Do you think some of those other cast brake parts could be Gandy ...

Re: HP products casted parts

Re: HP products casted parts

The headlight.....looks slightly to large to be an HP part. The HP headlight casting is a little different. The displayed casting could be an HP headlight for one of the larger locomotives (2-10-4, 4-6-6-4). 3rd row....the first brake cylinder is a HP freight car cylinder / air reservoir, second bra...

Thanks for preparing a fix for the post / unread post icons. I thought I had noticed something a little different when I read the unread posts the other day. Just another part of the wonderful life of getting older.....we all don't see as well as we did 10 years ago. :( :(
