Is the "turntable" base across the wagon frames made from metal (7 individual pieces?) - or is it also wood?
...Sorry Ex-Pat, this is a misunderstanding: the only wooden parts are the four pieces forming the main frame.
The rest (except the wheels, axles and a piece of brass rod for the axle of the brake wheel) is all 3D printed (Shapeways) from drawings I've made using Sketchup drawing program.
If I would be ever able to make from wood or even brass such a set of identical components I would be famous and probably not as poor as I am!
No problem - I didn't really understand what the "disconnects" were and just assumed they were everything on the cutting mat in the photo.
