Dan,

 

So are the cylindrical things at the joints grease points for the joint? Or are they something else?

Hi Nick, I don't really understand your question...

Would you show on my sketch what are you talking about?

For simplicity, I don't drew any grease fitting...

Hello gentlemen.

 

Please excuse my absence these last few weeks. Arthritis and trapped nerves, plus, frequent loss of feeling in my arms hasn't really been conducive to major progress, I'm afraid..... most frustrating!!

 

However, progress has been made on the steering linkages. Taking progress shots completely slipped my mind, sorry....won't happen again. The drums are made from ali discs that I turned on the Dremel.

The drums are only dry-fitted until I sort out the cable connection.

 

I also acquired a "new" toy this week....

Super Adept, made circa 1933. Runs very smoothly and has been well cared for by an old model-engineer. Great electrics, too...:lol:

 

I'll get a decent motor for it next week, then I can start turning the wheel rims.

Onwards we go.

 

That's all for now, chaps.

Thank you for watching.

 

Cheers, H

Sorry to hear about your troubles Harvey, it sounds worrying. I've been wondering where you were these last few weeks. I hope you'll be able to keep up your work, it looks very pretty as usual. All the best!

Dear HarveyI don´t know what to say.Maybe you should think about visiting me in Hungary.There are a lot of thermal springs which could help to solve the described problems.I want to wish you all the best and keep my fingers crossed for an early recovery.

You can always contact me on our PM..

Regarding your model:It´s realistic and beautiful! Personally I believe that the left front wheel was a bit more chambered than the right one

All the best! Your friend Hannes

some information of this English manufacturer,

I've visited that site quite a few times recently, as it goes. Very informative, indeed.

I think so too. I have set the right-hand upright to 5 degrees from vertical and the left set at 6, although the pic doesn't show it clearly. Will PM you tomorrow, matey.
