Hello From Ontario, Canada

At one time I made miniature (1/12 scale) turnings using wood, stone, acrylic and metal. Medical problems forced me to give that up. I started making miniature horse drawn wagons, but that got old very quickly. I am now teaching myself to use a milling machine as well as getting better on the metal lathe and I am into the wide world of miniature live steam stationary engines and railroad engines.

 

There are a few familiar names here and I look forward to some very interesting topics.

 

Cheers,

 

Tom

Welcome Tom, so you gave up on the grain wagon? I thought you were making progress. How are the eyes now? Did you ever get back to normal after the fire? What project are you on now?

Hi Bill,

 

Sorry to be so long in answering ... I didn't see your message.

 

Yes, I was making good progress on the grain wagon, but I had to stop because of my health (eyes, back). I would like to get it done one day, but that is not likely to happen. A bunch of my small tooling and supplies got destryed in the fire and I just never replaced them.

 

Currently I have been working on a live steam engine based on some of the logging engines of the 1920 era, but progress has been halted due to my ongoing back problem. I am not able to stand very long and most of the time am pretty much unable to walk. I have a feeling that most of my modelling days are done.

 

Glad to see you are able to get in the shop sometimes.

 

Cheers,

 

Tom
