Re: Tunnel Liners

Thanks guys.  Been fun trying to figure out how to make a liner for my situation.

That looks really good, neat (and lightweight) technique.

They look good! 
I have also used aluminum foil !
Crumpled up then flattened out, paint flat black, misted with some white and gray for high lites.
Then fold over a form for the scale you model, set over the rails. 
Flexible but strong enough to self support!
Just another option!

Hey Everyone,

I made up some stuff to share with my club, but thought that I would post it on here as well.

I came up with a method to make tunnel liners that didn't take plaster and molds.  Just some Gatorfoam board, some paint, and a little patience.  Working out good so far.

Re: laser cut kappler

Bill Lugg
 

Look at the drawings in https://groups.io/g/HOn3/files/Stripwood%20Storage%20Cabinet.  I think we've all agreed on the wide shallow "original" cabinet in the drawings.  Some have been asking if there's a way to produce a laser cut kit for this cabinet that folks could purchase at a reasonable price.  I put the drawings together without consideration or any real understanding of the capabilities or limitations of laser cutting wood.  So I'm wide open to any changes that might be required to make it possible as long as strength and durability are not sacrificed.

Thanks

Re: Remembering Frank Kappler

Climax@...
 

Bill:
Don't get committed yet. I found what may work really cheap. I was doing searches on line and came across US Art Supply. they have a 10 drawer, actually two 5 drawer wood cabinets that lock/stack together. The exterior size is 15/3/4 wide, 9 3/4 deep, and 10 3/4 tall. Each drawer has a pull on it and the inside is 14/ 1/4 wide, 8 1/2 long and 1/2 inch deep. They already have dividers in the drawers but I think they are removable. I have a set on order and can tell more when I get it. To look at the cases they have go to "US ART SUPPLY" and look up 10 drawer wood artist supply storage box USA WB-430. I have plenty of bass wood sheets I can run through my circular saw and cut horizonal dividers 1/2" by 14.25 long to insert in the drawers to make cubby holes for the strip wood. Cost is right at about $70

Go to: USArtsupply.com/productss/USA-WB-430 to see what I'm talking about. I also have inquires with them to their manufacturer to see if they can make the same case with drawers that are 24.5 inches wide for the 24 inch ling strip wood and maybe a taller sheet wood drawer.

Re: Remembering Frank Kappler

Dave and others,
One semi-COTS solution for 24" would require building the frame around these 26" baker's trays. There are many sizes and the plastic or metal ones would slide on wood rails pretty easily I would think.

https://www.amazon.com/New-Star-Foodservice-37227-Commercial/dp/B009L9ZI7Q/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=tray+26+9&qid=1584631453&sr=8-2

BTW on a separate topic, I found a solution for nickel plating those brass wheels so no need to reply to my email from last week......

Re: Remembering Frank Kappler

Climax@...
 

I might have found an answer to our search.
I googled up Artist Storage Box and was directed to US Art Supply
They have wood boxes that have 3-5 or 10 drawers that are 14/ 1/4 wide inside, 8 1/2 deep, and the drawers are 1/2" tall. The price is $69.96 with free shipping. I know most of our wood and plastic strips are 12 inches long but I am still looking for a reasonably priced wood cabinet that the draw interior is at least 24 inches wide, and up to an inch deep.

I'm pretty sure my design proposal wouldn't lend itself to laser cutting
the parts too well.  the sides, top and bottom of the cabinet and
drawers are too thick to cut, I think.  As I said before, I have no
experience with laser cutting in this arena, so if we're going this
route someone else is going to need to give me some parameter to design to.

OK, I've updated the design incorporating the information provided by Al
and the great suggestions by Rick, Dave and others.  The slides are now
part of the drawers and run in grooves in the sides. Clearance is
provided all around and an alternative treatment is offered to rabbet
the slides into the sides of the drawers for added strength.  Knobs are
up to the builder; the one I've specified will work, but I don't really
like it, it's too big.  Dusty and Rick had some good ideas as alternatives.

Everything has been updated at

Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to add or change.
