The "foundry" is  busy furiously "casting"

Track links. Lol 

 

Time consuming job but in some strange way relaxing brain dead work. 

Above having been said I am however open to suggestions to get it done faster.

I would offer suggestions as to how to speed things up, but I have no idea what is going on!:frantic:

 

Madness,, or genius? Or both?

And this is the actual reason for me trying this out:

I will now start on the opposite side's links and then do the whole skeletonisation thing. 

 

As always all comments and critique is welcomed.

Thanks stix. I must get my uniform etc ready for work in the morning so doubt if I will be able to do a lot roday. I will however say this:I am easily distracted yesterday evening I got to thinking that I would like to try my hand at making a bit of stowage items and thought to give it a try. Well the first item that I then got started on was a large banged up:

The handles is intentionally skewed there is still a bit of work to be done but I think the idea is there.

As an officially mad person with medications to hand I really think you should seek help :D

 

The work so far is stunning and I can understand now why you're doing it. I can't offer any speed tips as you're already at Warp 5 compared to me....

I'm sorry, but I think I've lost myself, the tracks that are making your own, are with 3D printing, or some kind of vacuum mold? ...:hmmm:
As you say, they seem a little "raw", but in any case, it is quite an achievement so far achieved.👍

Cheers mate

Hi Francis. Let me clear it up. No vac forming and no 3d printing good old file and plastic card at work here. I am planning to get a 3d printer a bit later in the year and I vac form only aircraft canopies wheels etc.

Hi all. Not being the type of a person to settle for something less than what I like I have decided to start the tracks from scratch. The current state that they are in does not please my eye and thus I am now back at the drawing board inspite of this decision endagering my projects timeline. I will be back as soon as there is some tangible progress.
