Greg, thanks much. The neat thing about the switching layout is the amount of people interest it generates.

Thanks a lot Dave, we try.

Thanks Carl. I just wish I planned the light from the start.

Thanks Russ, thatís all Daveís doing.

Ted I was going to put it more off the right and free standing. Dave said how about against the building. Good suggestion.

Jerry, wow those are powerful words, thanks.

Frank, You did a great job on Sgt Bob's great phone. Since the phone is located at the 'recycling' center, maybe you could also add the nickel with a hole on a string hanging next to it that he mentioned on my pharmacy interior thread :)

Bill, I would never admit to using a nickel on a string to make a call or a quarter on a piece of tape to operate a coin washing machine. Thatís just wrong.

David, thanks it just looks right there.

Well thank you Larry.

The next project for the Scrap Yard will be a simple power/telephone pole. The lineman weíll call ďBobĒ just for the heck of it. Iíll also remove the broomstick.





Dave has tasked me with yet another project. To motorize the 1/48 Cessna 172 floatplane. Weíll have an air taxi service leaving from the waterfront.



My project which I have accepted is to put this motor into the Cessna.



My plan is to install it in the tail section and run a brass tube drive shaft to the propeller. A 5/32Ē tube fits around the motor shaft and with some telescoping tubing I can bring it down to 1/32Ē and maybe include a U-joint. The shaft turns around 120 RPMs.

This is with the 5/32 tube testing alignment. Looks straight and level.







This will be the motor placement.



I keep thinking Iíll be back to my OWN projects one of these days or is it daze.



Frank
