Toy Construction #96: WS Tractor Semi #3

09-03-2016 12:02 AM by htl | 9 comments »

Finally got back to building my truck.Using oak and walnut for this build just love the way the grain in the oak shows up in these models.Needed to cut out the engine compartment. Wanted it cut in one pass so it would be nise and smooth so the clamp keeps it from being able to move. Next up was the grill and made some doors.. Then on to the dash board and finish the inside so I could close it up..

An adventure in making toys - Old Time Farm Truck #7: Wheels

05-25-2015 08:05 PM by George_SA | 3 comments »

Making the wheels was a bit of a head scratcher. Since I have a lathe I thought about turning the wheels on the lathe. I had a problem however, because I don’t have a chuck for the lathe and I wanted to do some face turning on the wheels just to make them a bit more interesting. I thought about making a homemade chuck and seeked some advise in the Woodturning forum. I again experienced the brotherhood of LJ’s with quite a bit of good advise. In the end I decided to leave the la...

An adventure in making toys - Old Time Farm Truck #2: Chassis and Axle housings

The plan and dimensions Chassis components Chassis glue up Axle housings. – Due to the runout on my drill press (which is quite old) I can’t drill a straight hole thru a long block. Thin pieces of wood is ok, but as soon as I drill a hole in a block 100mm and longer, the drill tends to wander a bit. Therefore I split the blocks in half and cut the grooves with my table saw. After that I glue the two halves together.The following photo shows the 4 halves ready for the g...
