I agree with Arthur, the wood looks amazing. The subtle tone difference in the walls and around the base totally compliment the masterful craftsmanship of the lathe.

Cheers, Heath.

Here you go Larry. I hope you are not to disapointed. By the time I dusted it with chalks there wasn't much left. As far as metal shavings, I have been saving them as I worked on the machinery. I haven't put them down yet because I might come up with a few more details and want to be able to get a good bond when I glue them in.

Thanks to all for the comments. It is nice to know I am on the right track.

Roland,
I think I can move the score to 100 now. Looking forward to the next pictures. I will also have to stop in and see the finished model.

Roland...

It's always fun to watch when you are doing something. Always new ideas or info on stuff I had left out on my stuff.

Question: Did the traveling hoist in your shop come as a Western Scale kit or did you scratch it?

Take care.

Hi Rick. Yes it is a Western Scale kit. I was lucky to find someone at a train show who was selling stuff from his late father-in-law really cheap. Most of the machinery in the shop came from him.

Larry, I was hoping for a 10, but 100 is impressive

Weather really sucks today so I am stuck insidewith no chores to do. Put this together this morning. I felt the shop needed a little color so went with yellow under all the rust and grime.

That yellow really makes that piece pop! I have some pieces I still haven't painted for my lowly machine shop, and I think I'll give that yellow a try! Very cool stuff! Russ

Thanks guys. It is a kit from Wiseman. I think I have built 4 of them so far. I got the idea from one of the photos Geezer posted, just didn't use a lawnmower engine for power. It will go somewhere in the shop.
