  • 1/64 Trolley Jack

    At long last I got this little fella sprayed up, and tonight I put him together.

    Worried about paint thickness, I didn’t use any primer. Paying for that now as you can see in the photos, the paint is already starting to rub off. Oh well, gives it a weathered look I guess.

    17 individual components. A bit of milling and turning, but most of the parts were filed down to fit by hand the old way. The axles were turned down from tiny finishing nails. Rest was just scrap brass and steel.

    Looking forward to delivering it to the garage later this week, and seeing it put to work.

              You must have a great amount of creativity, sharp eyesight, and nimble fingers to be able to create something so neat yet so tiny.

                Thankyou everyone - for taking the time to look at the photos and leave comments, really appreciate that.

                If you are interested in seeing more photos of the jack being used (and miss-used), it was just delivered to the garage this morning - https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/1...979#post180979

                      A brain surgeon with a diecast hobby. Imagine that.

                      Just incredible.
