Thanks Chris! But how do you turn the drums and still get them to hold weight? I strung mine out at lunch the other night at work and it actually holds up a decent amount of weight. I went for the home built look but you nailed the Jewell job there bud.

Here is a suggestion for you HCF !

Here is a quickfix !

1.) Grind or file drum face flat.

2.) Glue a 1/4 28 nut on center paint yellow.

3.)Buy 1/4 28 by 1" long roundhead screw bolt for each drum.

4.)Put one nut on threaded screw use as a locknut.

5.)Insert threaded rod into glued nut on drum now lock up against when turning drums.

6.)That is your key, Remove one done.You can glue a small rod in screw head slot for handle.



For a positive lock of the maindrum :

Glue a piece of styrene bracket behind drum under the inner barrel.

Drill a small hole thru drum and bracket.

Insert a pin for locking drum in the desired position.
Remove for drum rotation.

Regards
Chet

Thanks Chet! I believe I will try that on the next one. It sounds a lot easier than the friction lockup I've got going on now.

I finally figured out how to make some decent hydraulic lines. It's my first real attempt at anything real fancy.





And the waratah. I need to shorten these a bit but I still like how they turned out.





Thanks for looking.

I like your hydraulic lines what did you use to make them, along with the blue tape?

I used some tubing I found at michaels. I believe it's for making bracelets or beading, and the ends are just the silver color crimp tubes from wal-mart. The only bad thing is that if you bend it too sharp it just kinks. Looks good otherwise though.

They're this tubing stuff for beading and the couplers are actually crimp tubes for jewelry that just fit over the tubing. Thanks for the kind words bud. Here's a video of me rambling on and on and pointing the phone at some decent models. 330DL Yoader Vid

I got a little extra time last weekend to work on some models. Here's what I got done.

Built a water truck since fire season is approaching quickly and the neighbors don't like dust.







Since we started watering the road, the luber got pretty filthy.









Up on the landing earning its keep.







Thanks for looking. Hopefully ill have an update on my D8T project later this week.

This update is later than I thought it would be but it was worth taking the extra time.
I got a winch in the mail from 760bill and built a logging arch for it. So here's my latest creation, "D8T Loggers Special"







The sweeps are styrene tubing and the screens are just window screen.

Thanks for looking!
