A continuing winter project. Building a trestle for my HO layout. The plywood is where the trestle will be and the shape.

Attached Image

Printed some jigs to set the stringer. The stringer is several thin pieces of wood glued together so they can follow the shape. The jigs are held together with track rail so they have a smooth profile.

Attached Image

The stringers are made and glued to form the shape desired.

Ties are glued in.

Assembling the bents using the same shape as the track. I made these bents over 25 years ago and never used them...Until now.

I broke down and bought a 3d printer. Scored a Creality CR10S Pro V2. 300x300x400 build space. Should be here Thursday.

I've come up with enough projects that it finally made sense. A dozen+ of them even 914 related (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

My fruitless Mulberry tree is leafing, makes it harder to breathe, plus there is green dust EVERYWHERE, so doing car stuff in the driveway has been postponed for a week or two. A small price to pay for a summer full of shade and workable temps.

Not as fantastic as your project Rory,..but I found an old storage bin of my grandfather’s. A lick of paint and a label maker later. It passed the time today.

Yes. Building the trestle upside down as I'm using the curved roadbed as a jig so after building the roadbed I flipped it upside down and used some more jigs to properly space and position the bents. Printed a lot of jigs, braces, clamps, and hold downs with the 3d printer.

The trestle was started in my other house before moving to Allentown 25 years ago. The Allentown house had a lot more room so the layout grew and the original trestle which was never completed was torn apart for re-deployment in its new position and shape.

Two daughters and two Porsches means the only time for model railroading is in the winter. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Hi Rory I restored a rare early 914-6 drivers seat adjuster.

These are the straight arm style with different knob and brass adjustment finger.

I’m saving my HO train build for retirement

I had forgotten there was an early version. I'll have to check my '70 four that I'm parting out.

Definitely should; they are pretty hard to come by especially not all rusted away.

Does anybody know what build date the change occurred? May need to add another 'collect it when you can' item to my list for when/if I decide to restore my -6.

I got a car for me and the boy wrench on.

It is hilarious to drive and somehow a ton of fun to run around in.

A customer's independent Porsche shop is close enough for me to visit. Plenty of space for keeping social-distance. This is a 2.9 with Kinsler fuel injection, coil-on-plug, stand alone mgmt and 1.625" msds headers. Always brainstorming at this shop on the latest header , cams and final muffler combinations.

Not only the Corona 'lock-down', but we're getting a lot of rain too (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pat.gif)

I have a few plastic model kits I can work on: a BMW 2002, a '62 Pontiac Catalina (my mom had a '62 Bonneville), and a Vanagon Westfalia kit.

Checking out Spoke's cool train setup ... I have a lot of H.O gauge stuff, but it's all at my place in AZ, so that'll have to wait - but I have some 'N' gauge and 'Z' gauge stuff here in CA. I'd like to build the 'Z' gauge into a top shelf of a glass-top coffee table, so I'll have to look for an appropriate coffee table. Probably need to modify it for a shelf/drawer to build the diorama in (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)


... and of course, I can always amuse myself with musical instruments (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rock_band.gif)

Hope y'all can find something to keep your minds, bodies and general outlook in good shape.

I've been breaking in my new log splitter, then it's on to re-doing the woodpile for better air circulation.

Great question.
I think I have one of those somewhere. Must look
In the 356 world they poll owners by chassis number to define where changes.
occured.
Plenty of early cars here to inspect but these seat bases are easily changed.
Beautiful job Robert.
