    Those who have been watching Mossy's various NER Wagon Builds will possibly recall these:

    I too have a few kits from Medley Models/NER Days that contain similar buffers. A pack of them has been sat on my desk for sometime looking at me saying "do something to make me usable..."

    So today I took a couple of hours and turned them down.

    It was a really useful exercise in repeatability and working to the graduations on the lead screws. The slight differences in sizes over 20 or so buffer heads that I worked on kept me on my toes.

    Hi Rob,

    Are these the pack of daft buffers I sent with the two B1 open kits or did he send you a set as well?
    Steve reckoned you could file them down in a mini drill :avatar:.

    I think that's just wishful thinking.
