Re: Tapping Shapeways high def plastic

Ric Case
 

Gents I am printing my own 3D cars and drill out the holes for the 00/80 tap with no problem! 
Mine are resin and tap very clean ! If I get a little sloppy with the tap, I just use a very fine coating of white glue on the tip of the screw to hold it in place.
Have around thirty already done.

I think I would get some thin plastic rod a little bigger than the screws you're going to use, drill the car body out for it, superglue a suitable section in place and tap that out for the screw. A small post drill helps get the holes straight. Tedious I know but with all that time on your hands it will keep you busy!

Tapping Shapeways high def plastic

Mike Conder
 

Anybody have good experience with tapping Shapeways' fine plastic 3D prints?  I have a bunch of cars needing truck screws, wanting to tap 0-80 (or is it 00-80) for their Blackstone trucks.

Advice etc. appreciated ...

Upcoming Zoom meeting Fw: Craftsman Courtyard Virtual Train Show

Darryl Huffman
 



from Chris Coarse, Conowingo Models:

I’ve been working with Steve Milley, Mark Schreier and Jeff Grove to develop a virtual train show around Steve’s Craftsman Courtyard. Zoom seems to be the platform of choice. My intent is to have a structured format with a presenter (demo something, show off dioramas or a layout tour), a little question time and then roll into a vendor highlighting their wares. Each session would be about 15 minutes-ish, plus a few minutes for questions. The free option of Zoom allows for up to 40 minutes. However, Jim Kellow’s sessions have gone for two hours without a charge or cutoff. My thought is to go through the structured part and then turn the beer light on (or drink of your choice) and gab for a bit. If we get cut off, hopefully we’ll at least have the two presentations done.

Here’s the info on the virtual train show. 

https://us04web.zoom.us/j/76164339008?pwd=WWdUcFB6bFFIVmwwM0wxTEd5akNpZz09

 is the address for the meeting.     June 28th at 7:00 PM eastern time.

Great photos Ed, thank you.

One of the reason I mess with European HOe is that the early overhead electric Krokodyls have a character of ther own.

(I also rather like the East German 0-4-4-0 Mallets and 0-10-0 tank engines biut that's another heresy)

Re: NG diesels

Those are neat!  Maybe converting to HOn30 is the answer.  My 44t didn't look as good as these.  Most of my conversions were completed as leased/demonstrator units that could fit in any layout.

That one sure has traveled!  I did send one to England, I think this may be that one.
