« Part 1: Preliminary Part 2 of Forklift series no next part

After I made a plan for a forklift it was time to build my own. This blog is about the build process. Beaware that the way I build my models are not the only one. I’m sure that in a lot of situations there are better ones! For that reason comments with orther techniques are more than welcome. Thanks to the work of SouthavenToyMaker you already can see the end result.

How did you undrill it?

Could have been an “Australian side” drive…

No hook and loop sandpaper?

With an undrill drill, AKA a beech dowel from 6mm

- LittleBlackDuck

I have considered this, but than I have to think mirror wise for other parts and I’m afraid I have than to make twice as much parts than I need.

No hook and loop sandpaper?

No. From time to time I get a piece of sandpaper (grit 80) from a window frame factory from about 1100×2200 mm2, good for 8 new pieces. A verry good quality, but without hook and loop. Gluing a new sheet on the disk takes less than 10 minutes of labor.

Gotta get one of those undrill bits! I presume being from Dutchland they come in metric…

I can see economies in paper from the factory, however, consider…
a couple of hundred paper changes and you could build an entire model in that time… a couple of thousand and you could be younger again.

Very nice Dutch. I’m enjoying the step by step.

Nice work. I am glad that I am not the only one that undrills holes. If it works do not change it.

Have your say...
