This forum is swell, as I was looking for something else I came across this thread. Brilliant!!!! I shall now attempt to build such a tool, and thus, start my own RR empire! Thanks, Sean.
    I must of followed along with you in 1970. You sure seem familiar. Welcome back.

    The larger handle makes dealing with the joiners much easier for my large mitts which is why I decided to add it to the skinny little brass tube.

    Jay, looking at this thread now (Oct.2017) shows the dreaded photobucket icon for all pictures with no way to see them. Any chance of putting pics in that we can all see ?

    See this thread: http://www.nscale.net/forums/showthr...-3rd-party-fix!

    The Chrome plugin is working for me and I can see all the photos, at least for now.

    Sad to say that the Chrome Fix didn't work, still have that annoying "update ....." box and nothing more.
