Mark - Larry and cousin Charlie are NOT known for doing much work.

Ryan - I think it needs a bit of trimming but I like it. Thanks.

Bob

Itís just unbelievable how much fun you have creating these scenes. Itís nearly as fun for us watching to see what you come up with next.

Thanks Terry, I think having FUN is what a hobby is all about, and it pleases me no end if others
can share in the FUN too.

Cheers,

Bob

OK Fred, just because you own the place does not mean you can get Bossy,

I posted this morning but it seems to have disappeared. I will try to reconstruct what I said then.

The next two stations are both drums, not very interesting models. I will have to have them
securely mounted in the structure before I proceed because all transfers of toothpicks
between them is via forced air through tubes.

These are all silver, the gold color is from a lamp that was shining when I made the photograph.

It looks like a posting from CarlB was lost too.

Carl, please resubmit your last posting.

Thanks,

It looks like the last two days were lost. Strange.

Anyway, nice work, Bob. Hope it sticks this time.

Fred and Carl, thanks for posting.

The last machine we talked about was the puncher and there the toothpicks are finally
cut loose but they are soft so the next step is a trip through an air pipe to the dryer.
This requires a 4 hour tumble as heat is applied which causes the toothpicks to
harden. Then through another air pipe to the polisher which is another drum where the
toothpicks are tumbled another 4 hours with talcum powder and friction to make them really smooth.

The last station I will be modeling is packaging and here I have a problem. I had
wanted this to be near the big window but it will not fit, my only choice is to make it
along the wall of the stairwell.

Hey, I know it's crowded but I said that right from the beginning.

The pipe at the debarker is air system to take bark and chips outside and up to the
roof where they will end in a small sawdust burner. Which reminds me, I have several
other things to make for the roof.

Bob

Bob, Terrell's will soon be drumming up new customers for their first class toothpicks. Looks good. I think the long wall next to the stairwell will be a good space for packaging the toothpicks.

"Hey, I know it's crowded but I said that right from the beginning".

How much room is required to make tooth picks'.. with all this modern state of the art manufacturing equipment, Fred will have no problem with a one man operation'...

Bob, I really love how the factory interior has come out looking!
Very believable looking machinery and setup.

Bill, Ted, and Greg, thanks for stopping by.
I've been absent from the Forum so I could get my income tax done.



Here's the meat of the packing department, it will be mounted on the wall of the stairwell.
The air tube from the polishing drum wraps around and dumps the finished toothpicks into
the hopper atop the "machine" in the middle. The packing starts with flat boxes stacked up in
the bin on the far left. They move through the first "machine" where they are folded and
placed in the track to the right. The open boxes move along the track and when they get
to the center "machine" they are filled with toothpicks from the hopper above. Then the
filled boxes move along the track to the last "machine" where they are closed with a small
spot of glue and ejected down that inclined track to the packing table below.

Bob
