    Okay, guys. We all know the proper procedures to safely use power tools. And we all know there are instances where one needs to bypass those protectors or procedures to get the job done. When that is necessary, remember: focus. Be safe out there my friends!

    Gordon, you are so right. I was in the process of turning the saw off, when my left hand was moving faster than my mind. I had just glanced away from the blade, to look at the power switch to turn it off with my right hand, when my left hand was going for the board I had just ripped. It took that one very minute second and it was done. I've worked around all kinds of power tools all my life and I always try to do things the safest was possible.
    Although, I did mash my left little finger between the 1st and 2nd joint when I slipped on some ice while carrying a car battery and had to be amputated. That happened January 4th, 1974 when I was just 15.

    Yes, Rodney. Not meant as a criticism (barn doors and absent horses). It is amazing how quickly bad things happen. We all need reminding now and then that power tools don't stop when we say, "Ouch!" You, of course, don't need reminding.

    Next round is on me! Set'em up, barkeep!

    Well I've been playing with the new toy. I found the files for these trucks on the net and this was the first print with the new gray resin I got. The printer came with translucent green resin and that is what I used to print the Kato tender oil tanks. I'm guessing that these are about 1/300th scale.
    The one on the left is on a penny and the right one is on a dime. I broke the windshield post on the right one when I was washing it to get the excess resin off.











    Then I scale the '54 International stake truck close to n scale















    You can see that I missed removing a support that went through the front tire.









    Here it is next to a CMW tractor

    Anycubic Photon SLA resin printer. Got it from 3D printer's Bay for $418 shipped. The only real drawback is the print area size, but for n scale, it do about everything I want to do. It is kind of messy to work with too, but to get some of the prints I've been getting, I can deal with that.

    Just read about your thumb! That's gotta hurt! I had my right foot crushed years ago by a 150# bar of steel... it made me puke from the pain. Hope your back up to speed soon, that can be a painful haul!

    Cheers

    Truly believe that this is detail enough for N-scale , once i have my shed in the garden I'm getting one, no room for it now as small as it may be.

    That is why I bought it. The quality of the prints is unbelievably good. One thing to keep in mind is, you got to know or learn how to use a CAD program.

    I'm working on a WP caboose that was built in WP's shop out of outside braced boxcars.

    Here is what I drawn so far on the sides. Need to copy and paste to make the other side, then I can add the windows. Once I have the ends drawn, I'll assemble it and the will be printed as one piece for the body. Then the roof with copula and the bottom frame will come next. Once I know that the frame is good to go (like coupler pad height and truck pins fit, shell fit) , I'll use my spin casting setup to cast the frame in Britannica metal. The process that I've used in the past to make masters out of plastic is, once I have the printed frame, I make a RTV mold of it and then cast it with JB Weld. JB Weld will take the heat (350 degrees F) and pressure (3000 psi) need in the vulcanizing process of making the spincasting mold.

    Rodney,

    It is going to take some time mate, don't push things with it though or it might take longer to fully heal

    Yea, I know, but things like trying to hold a screw, so I can get it started, I can't do yet. But I did find a way to do it without using the thumb.

    Dang!! Those 3D prints are nice!!
    I need to get some training/learning on 3D design...

    Just caught up on injury too... sucks. Hoping you continue healing and regain full use.

    There is too many damm hobbies within the model railroading hobby. I'm not getting any work done on the layout. I printed this yesterday for a friend that is in the process of building a HO scale model of Denver's union station for a local modeler. Once he adjusts the file for fit, I'll need to print 6 of them. This one took about 13 hours to print.. It's for the big windows on the front and back.

    I used a lot of support so I didn't have a failure and I think the supports used about as much resin as the model.

    It takes almost the whole build plate.












    With the supports removed.









    And here is the keystone and it is beautiful.
