I see some more progress has been made since yesterday. Looks great, Al!


Hmmm.... how about a BWA chassis jig sometime in the future?

If I made a chassis jig,no one could afford it.It would be good though.

Yes,it is Aluminum,but,there's a trick that I will show as the jig progresses.

Cool stuff, Al. I'm having a hard time getting spares for my Saturn V soldering equipment these days ( any suggestions, EM?) so I look forward to finding out what your cunning plan is...

By the way, did you notice my subtle plea on Iceman's Scarab pages?

Well, you could always use a variant of a scheme I devised some time ago to cure an elusive short in my old Scalex track - I removed all of the electrical connections to the affected lane, attached my auto battery charger and turned it on! A small report and a brief flash denoted the vaporization of the offending object and. after reattaching the wiring, all was well.
