Real nice work, love the new tracks. As soon as my hand heals up enough I will be back making me a set , or at least trying to come close to them.

Good progress. When people ask me about the sanding schedule I tell them that when they think they are done they need to get a couple more sheets of sandpaper and go over it again. Keep up the best part of woodworking.

You got that’s right hookfoot, and I use up a couple a sanding sponges along with the paper on the curves, really smooths them out.

I’m not sure which is the more impressive the tracks or that arm??

Maybe both deserve top marks Bruce!!

Thanks guys for keeping up with the progress, if you can call it that, as it seems to be a slow go for me but there’s a lot a detail that can be added to these nice plans.
