I have great faith that all will go together neatly, after all, look at Frank. :thumbs:
Now, I heard a rumour that Lazy Susan likes to swing... :mutley2::mutley2:

Cheers, Gary.

Mr Flounder kind sir, I think they are being very unkind to your great selfness, there is yourself with the body of a God - pity its Budda :avatar:

Great progress

The underside of the bridge piece and the top surface of the lower support section, may be worth sanding smooth, and varnishing, then sanding again to reduce any friction before assembly.

Thanks for the comment and suggestions. The turntable will be getting fixed down today and I'll sand down the bridge bearing as well. The whole lot shall be varnished to seal it but the bearing will get particular attention.

On another note, I am flabbergasted that anyone could be less than astounded by my fine physique. In fact my flabber has never been so ghasted. My wholesomeness has never been at such heights before. Ah well ........ Looks like the minions have much time on there hands. More homework needed I fear.

:scratchchin:

I'll catch up again later.

Cheers

Toto

Some things are easier undone than others. I must admit now that you have seen my handsomeness in a better light, you are in with a chance. :avatar:

Well the heavens have opened and it's gushing it down. The patio slabs were just drying out nicely as well. :scratchchin: a rethink of today's activities is on the cards. At least until the rain calms down.

:hammer:

Get the airbrush and paints out. You can always weather up the track. Or perhaps start building some platforms or structures... :thumbs:

Cheers, Gary.

Ok so had no luck making a diagram Toto but was able to use your diagram to sketch in the way the preload works to make the lazy Susan bearing stable using a bolt through to the second bearing
You will need side girders along the table deck as well due to the weight of the O scale Locos the ply will flex some ply strips would do, also becomes the saftey sides of the table to protect from unwanted trips to the floor

Thanks for that Chris,
food for thought. Todays progress has been zuilch due to rain but I;m looking at a few ideas for parts that could maybe be used as per your sketch.
A disappointing day but I don't want to expose untreated plywood ( or power tools ) to the elements. I'll make up for it next weekend even if it means buying a cheap gazebo to work under. After all, rain is no stranger here.:avatar:
cheers

Hi,
well the rain went off and the baseboard build continued. here is what I had to start todays exercise,
a load of unassembled bits.


it all has to start somewhere, so I started from the joining end and progressed.



First layer of ply nearly there.


ahhhh getting there.





and another  


a board joint from underneath.


looking not bad.


pretty sturdy stuff when the strapping starts going in,


and more,


and some more.


The finished item really not counting the bridge deck and bearing supports.


All sides on now,


and from another item ........ and enter stage left baseboard 1. 


its a big sucker as Gormo would say. :avatar:


and the last shot for today. Apologies that the bridge bearing did not get underway but it was a very late start by the time the rain went off.
all comments welcome.
cheers
toto

Just thinking .........:scratchchin: this needs legs........... and the obligatory naming ceremony ......... or is that just tempting fate and jinxing it. :avatar:
I have the ideal timber for the legs. Could be one of next weekends tasks. As for a name ...... anything to get the ideas flowing is welcome.
cheers

Will the legs be fitted solid or will they be hinged so that you can take the layout to exhibitions ?? :scratchchin:

Cheers, Gary.

They need to be flexible Gary as it cant stay assembled. It will be taken down after every session.
There maybe the odd occassion where it could be left up in the house at the weekend ........ but the very odd occassion. I'll hold judgement as to if it will be up to exhibition standard. It may make the odd appearance at a church fate if welcomed.
we'll see. maybe underestimating my ability a bit. fingers crossed.
cheers
Toto

Its Luib Bridge.
Luib is an area beside Glendochart where they had a couple of sidings off the main Crianlarich line. They had an old carriage where workers would stay over night when working on repairs on the permanent way.
There was an old water tower and a bit of a platform.
My layout will have the platform and maybe a water tower albeit a bit bigger than the original prototype. I will subsitute the purpose of the sidings for goods sidings.
There was also numerous bridges crossing small hill streams and old sheep drovers track / landrovers tracks.
thats that.
cheers

Luib Bridge - is that slang for the forth road bridge, as them baseboards look big enough to put it on.

The boards look really good, cant wait to see track on em
