I just had to make one more with a jig. I was looking at the left over piece of wood with the bore.

Image

I came up with the idea that I could use a thin slice to hold everything together while I soldered it. It worked pretty good.

Image

I'm going to see if I can clean this up better with a fine cut file.

Image

And just to give a size perspective. Here's it sitting on a penny.

Image

Still going to make that jig/fixture in case I have to make more.

Thanks Alex. I think you'd be able to do this too once shown how to. Takes a bit of patients though. :wink:

Well I’ve got several other projects going at once. While my CNC mill was busy making a jig I got to finishing up planking the walls of the engine house.

Finished up the window on the other end of the engine house.

Image

Once I got the bottom planked I set up a jig for placing the boards around the circular window. It’s glued to the steel with Ileene’s tacky glue so it wouldn’t move. Also added a beam behind the jig after I took the picture.

Image

Once I got the planking up to the window I needed to put a scallop in the wood for a nice fit around the window. I marked approximately the center.

Image

Next I glued a piece of sandpaper around a piece of brass stock that is the same diameter as the window, ½” dia. and sanded a scallop in the wood.

Image

End result is a nice scallop……..

Image

……that will fit around the window.

Image

The wall all done.

Image

And with the second round window installed temporarily.

Image

In a day or two I’ll trim the excess from the boards, paint the round windows and begin to install the large windows.

Until next time. Tanks for stopping by.
