    stopping Daily Notifications & Updates

    BUMP. I have sent a request to the administrators to stop all daily digest emails to my on file email address. I really hope someone is in the office, because the emails are a nuisance to me.
  2. I believe I have all of the settings unchecked, but continue to get daily updates to my email address. any help making these stop will be appreciated. thanks

    D Day Cricket manufacturing

    internet search has netted various sources to buy, but none how these were made. would a die stamping machine to be used for the upper, and cut off machine for rolls of spring stock the lower? and a crimper to hold them together? manufacturing plant planned for the model railroad and thought this to be a good choice: raw materials in, finished product out, many interior details. thanks

    pre- 1950 packing material

    what was used before foam peanuts & plastic air-bags? excelsior ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wood_wool) comes to mind, but what would replicate it in 1:35 scale?I remember cosmoline and wrinkly wrapping paper, but neither would provide cushion in a shipping crate. thanks

    piping. the little roll about 1/4" in diameter sewn between two pieces of fabric to help it go 'round a bend and look finished. helps establish the arris.
