Carl, Your chimn-chiminee chimneys look great! Andthere's plenty of room for chimney sweeps, Mary Poppins floating down with her umbrella, a flock of pigeons (only tuppence a bag to feed 'em) and even a fiddler :)

Thank you very much Jim, Bernd, Kevin, Jerry, Fred, Greg, Bob, Pete, George, Frank, Dave and Bill !

Greg- I will add more soot when they are permanently mounted...

The chimneys WERE a lot of time and effort, but nothing suitable was available commercially.
So...you build them yourself. But after all that, I felt like I got worked over. [:-fight]

As prominent as they are, the chimneys add much to the model.

Carl,

I don't think I can say much more than what has already been said regarding the chimneys, so great work!

Can you tell me where you got the clamps that you showed on the previous page? About how far do they open? Thanks

Love the extra work put into the chimneys.

I had never noticed them before in real life.

Now I need to watch some old British movies again.

Thanks Mike, Rich and Darryl!

Rich- I purchased the 12" brass bar clamps from Micro Mark many years ago....

However, the maximum open jaw length is actually 10 3/4".

The chimneys are looking real good!!!

I have a set of four of those 12" clamps and also a set of the smaller 5" claps. Both have
seen lots and lots of use over the years.

Thanks Carl,

I just got a new Micro-Mark catalog in the mail, and two of the 12", or 7", or 4 3/4", or ultra-mini 3 3/4" long bar clamps are all two each for $24.95
Beats me why the price is the same for the different sizes. [:-bigeyes]

I use the bar clamps frequently (but I use the 'one hand' small size woodworking clamps a bit more often.) The advantage of the bar clamps is the clamp pieces are (usually) parallel to each other.

Bob- Thanks!

Hey Rich- Check these brass bar clamps out. A little less money.
Mine are labeled "Made in japan".

Dave- That's the best feature--- the parallel clamps....
