It is actually quick progress. I find I get seasons where I do nothing but dream up ideas, and then I will get a modelling spree where I do a lot... Unfortunately the daydreaming seasons do tend to be long. But there again, without daydreaming I would do no modelling as I would have no ideas or plan...

You are making great progress there. I get seasons. One season I will go mad with modelling where I get lots covered, and then I go onto a different season where I am in daydreaming mode... No modelling gets done but many ideas and plans flow! There is no hurry in modelling, so it does not matter wh...

Yes. The all wheel pickup bogie diesels have amazing pickup abilities, so are able to glide over shorter dead sections with ease. Most have flywheels on the motor shafts as well, which also aid to carry the momentum through. On my last layout which was DC, I had switchable automated sections which w...
MG is this more along the lines you are looking for? https://www.axminster.co.uk/proxxon-ks-230-saw-300095 It is still dearer than a tile saw and has one serious drawback that the cutting depth is only 8mm. One of the reasons why tile saws will be cheaper than wood cutting types is that generally t...
I found a lovely type of bench saw which looked the ideal size. However on looking closer it is another one of those tile cutters! They come so close to what I want and they are resonably priced. However, the blades are not for wood. Grrr! Why is it, if it is a tile cutter it is cheap, but if it is ...

Have "Gunged" many bicycles over the years for customers. My thoughts. It does work, and work well, but it is not without its issues. My cousins eldest boy decided (As he was working at the bicycle store and had access to the stuff) to put well over the recommended amount in. When his tyres slowly w...
Thanks for the replies. I have seen tile cutting mini table saws for very cheap prices, but as soon as it says "Hobby" on it it is just a tad too small and very expensive. Yet a proper table saw is far too big. We have a largeone here and to be honest, I rarely use it. My brother cuts firewood with ...
Keeping with the sawing wood theme, I would like to cut wood into lengths for my use. Lengths can be variable, but the height and width of the sections need to be around 5 or 6mm wide by about 12 to 14mm high. I may want to cut other small sized lengths as required. I don't want a large circular saw...
