    Moose see interesting video on tree making using wire & static grass, sooo Moose stampede out to get some supplies:

    26 gauge florist's wire:
    1_FloristWire_26Gauge_20191215_155951.jpg

    Little nipper pliers for biting the heads of nasty nails:
    2_EndNipperPliers_20191215_160020.jpg

    Micro drill bits:
    3_MicroDrillBits_20191215_160033.jpg

    If you haven't seen the video, the tree maker uses wire for branches in combo. with static grass, uses nipper pliers on the nails (why didn't Moose think of these before) before inserting nails into wood, and balsa wood into which stiff wire is easily pressed. Since Moose uses a variety of different diameter hard woods, Moose need plenty of drill bits for the wire holes... Blah blah blah!

    Am almost out of micro mark ageing solution so am going to try some of Hunterlines products. Ordered these to begin with last night:

    Hunterline Dark Brown:



    Hunterline Creosote Black:



    Shipping is a bit on the costly side so am hoping it is worth the money.

    30 24" lengths of 1/8 x 1/8 bass (framing)

    Okay and I don't do this very often; however, if anyone needs Bass Wood I would thoroughly recommend buying from a place called "Kit Craft" in CA. Yeah I know, California but these guys are great and very VERY efficient and quick.

    Every thing I ordered above (other than the Clap Board) is from Kit Craft and they have already processed and shipped the order. Great company for Bass Wood!!!

    All of the Bass Wood I have bought recently has been from them, so this isn't a recommendation based on just one order, it's based on 3 or 4 in recent times Should add that I have been getting my orders within 5 business days as and that isn't bad coming from CA to NY.

    Well, with all of the darn construction that seems to be going, or will be going on, in my Company I thought I'd better get some stuff for the guys to use - stuff like this:



    10 X Mini Clamps that open to 4" and close to um, you know - they never did mentioned that hmm.

    I have 4 of those from Harbor Freight and they come in handy all the time when building "stuff". Perfect size, weight and clamping pressure for N-scale.

    I had one or two years ago and they were great then - not sure what happened to those but now I have nice new ones to play with. As you said, they come in very handy and do apply good pressure without "crushing" anything.

    another useful small clamp is your average wood clothes peg. I have a few of the spring loaded wood pegs just for holding stuff while glueing

    Agreed - I used them for my stringers on the "straight bridge" - they do work well indeed.

    The "Hunterline" Stains arrived this morning. Haven't had a chance to test them yet but will later this evening and let people know what I think:



    These are 8 oz Bottles by the way.

    One order down, three to go
