Scroll saw projects #1: Wooden Pad lock #2

09-08-2020 11:53 PM by htl | 8 comments »

Looking for another project for the scroll saw and found an interesting lock to make.Here’s what got my attention. I figured out a size I liked and then printed out some copy’s and tried to come up with something that would work. I had built one before so still had the plans I had used for the insides just had to move them around to fit the shape I’m using this time. I tried to keep the body and arm as close as possible so there wouldn’t be to much space showi...

Peter Bilt Trucks #1: One mean looking PanTech is started!

08-07-2020 06:16 AM by crowie | 4 comments »

One mean looking PanTech is started! I firstly started with a engine and cabin on a chassis… It looks okay well a good start! Take the roof off to reveal the insides! And it even has a gearshift and a steering wheel for Aussie roads. Now to cut out and glue up the back…. Used most of my clamps to get that done! WOW! It looks big! And the back doors worked out well… The top of the PanTech Box or lid was tricky for...

Wooden Models #285: Indy Car Scratch build Fair weather tires

05-29-2020 09:21 PM by htl | 2 comments »

I was told my knobby tires just wouldn’t do so today I made the tires I should have made to start with but just wasn’t sure if this car was going to be worth the extra effort. So here’s my step by step for making the fair weather tires or slicks.Scraps of walnut, now I know why I’ve been saving all those useless chunks a wood. My 2” hole saw makes quick work for the shape, see how I drilled the holes right at the edge of the wood so the saw dust could g...

Wooden Models #282: Indy Car Scratch build #2

05-25-2020 07:45 PM by htl | 5 comments »

Getting the feel of how it needs to be. These parts will be glued one on top of the other so need to have the parts shaped and sanded before they are added. I usually don’t build models this way but seemed like it will work for this small a project. Got the back end figured out.If I knew what I know now I would have had the rear end as part of the frame parts it would have come out much cleaner looking. Next up need to play a round with the front. This...

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #13: Ebonizing the tyres, first timer.

11-20-2019 08:48 AM by crowie | 14 comments »

Ebonizing the tyres, first timer. And mistakes were made, yes. You have to use Super Fine 0000 Steel Wool as the standard hardware steel wool doesn’t devolve. After watching a couple of videos I decided make a brew of strong black tea to prep the timber. I let the tyres dry then applied a coat of the white vinegar and steel wool solution.

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #12: Trying to get the front view correct

11-10-2019 02:47 AM by crowie | 13 comments »

Trying to get the front view correct I’ve add some timber to do the inner flare on the front mudguards, then did a lot of hands free shaping. The headlights position was too high but with some more shaping I’ve managed to lower them.

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #10: These headlights look way bigger

10-31-2019 08:15 AM by crowie | 4 comments »

These headlights look way bigger so on went the thinking cap again. I found some 1” dia headlights on Bearwood but shipping to Australia isn’t cheap along with a very poor exchange rate. Make them! A craft bead + a tiny wooden spoon + a piece of dowel. They still need some shaping and sanding but they’re okay
