|Thread: doug hewson "pansy"|
Hi all,l am having a problem with the drag box on doug hewsons PANSY,the drawings only show one side section view,with no reference to drag hook mounting,or whether it has a top and bottom plate,l am guessing that it does,but if anyone knows for sure it would be much appreciated,thanks,jack.
|Thread: lead screw|
can anyone tell me what thread is used on myford lead screws to attach the operating handle???,many thanks,jack.
|Thread: rivet snaps|
I need to set a number of rivets in some 1/4x1/4 angle but my snaps are to bulky,is there a source of "skinny" rivet snaps or do l need to modify the ones l have??,sorry for the daft question!!!
|Thread: doug hewson "pansy"|
Hello all,l am working on the lbsc pansy as redesigned by doug hewson,can anyone confirm the hole sizes in the frames??,as far as l can see only a few holes are actually given a size on the drawings,l am guessing at No43/8ba for the stretchers but if anyone has or is building this engine and can offer guidance l would be very grateful
|Thread: pansy 060|
Okay,thanks for the replies,cast iron cylinder block it is!!
Hi all,l am building an 0-6-0 pansy,can anyone tell me if its okay to fit a gunmetal steam chest to a cast iron cylinder block or would l have a problem with different expansion rates??....l already have a g/m steam chest and the cast iron cylinder blocks are a good bit cheaper than g/m ones,l could go all c/i but would then be left with a g/m steamchest,thanks,jack.
|Thread: 6 wheel brake van|
Thanks peter,l seem to have made a mistake in my post,the weight should be "24 tons",not 26,.....yes you are correct,there are a fair few pictures online,but l am after a really good 3 view drawing.....l am sure the info exists,the model kit people had to get their details from somewhere,the 3 view you found is of a 4 wheel vehicle,but that is the sort of thing l am after.......l intend to produce a 5"gauge model for use as a driving truck,the extra wheels will spread the load better,cheers,jack.
Hi all,l am looking for a set of drawings for a 6 wheel toad 26ton brake van....if l can get hold of a set of good 3 views l am happy to produce the working drawings l need from them,,,,,l can scale up from a plastic kit,but prefer to work from a good three view,been looking in the usual places but not having much luck!!!.
|Thread: LOCO ID|
hi nigel,someone on ebay is selling some castings for a "d 60",looks like its a steam loco though,still,its at £16 just now,might be worth a punt!!
does anyone know what a "D 60 0-6-0" might be????
|Thread: doug hewson 060 pannier tank castings|
Hi all,l am about to start the build of LBSC pansy 0-6-0 and l plan on using Doug Hewsons redesign parts.....however l seem to be having trouble locating the frame stretchers,the motion plate in particular,as re designed by doug hewson,it could be that these castings are no longer to be had,STEAMWORKSHOP dont appear to have any of these castings,so l am wondering if anyone might have a set of the doug hewson design stretchers they would be willing to part with???,many thanks,Jack.
|Thread: 0-6-0 pansy|
thanks baz and neil,do you know if copies of mag articles can be obtained or do l need to buy whole back issues???,many thanks gentlemen,l appreciate the help!!.
can anyone point me in the right direrction??,l am starting a build of LBSC "pansy 0-6-0" and l believe that doug hewson has upgraded the original drawings via articles in M.E,.....trouble is ,l cant seem to find said articles,so if anyone can help it will be very much appreciated...jack.
|Thread: Drummond Lathes|
Hello all,l am a newcomer to this site though have been a modeller for many years,l have just taken possesion of my very first lathe!!!,such excitement !,as far as l can find out,it seems to be a "DRUMMOND PRE-B TYPE 3.5 FLAT BED" it does not have a compound saddle/cross slide,simply a traversing tool post,l would like a compound slide if anyone has one for sale,the tailstock clamp is by way of a rod some 8" long with a fixed hand wheel on top,l cannot find any referrence to this method anywhere so must assume it is non original,the tail stock is also fitted with jacobs chuck on a screw thread,how does one fit a live or dead centre??,clean up is under way (it is a sort of "barn find)any help/advice will be most welcome,l will post some pics when l get a chance...Jack
