Yes, I know, but is is as it is so let's se the little news:

Shapeways steel 3D interpretation of my Sketchup drawing provided the tiny two parts forming mold for the barrel tiles.

This is my very first try with metal prints. I had very serious doubts about but now I am sure I will use it again soon:

Yes, the room between the two parts is exagerated but since thisa is not going to be a stamping mold but just a forming one I thought I better avoid too tight precision and ensure easy work. Mainly because I would like to make an a bit les U shaped profile and instead gtet tiles with a more open curve as the older tiles had

The surfaces look rough and they do show some minimal grain but it is a lot less than it likes in the many times enlarged photos.
That would be a serious issue for a stamping mold but in this case I don't see any chance of the mold impressing it's tiny roughness on the aluminium...

The four holes are 0,8mm and must be enlarged to 1,5 or 2mm in order to take four steel rods which would act as guides so the two parts work properly aligned...

For 34euro is absolutelly worth. Specially if smae day when you get the molds this tiles appear screaming they need to be molded too...

ImageIMG_0196 (8) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

.... because this scene appeared brutally pushing to be modeled....

Life is nothing more than a mystery full of surprises!


----------------------------------------------------------------------


Also the 3D printed parts for the locomobile arrived.
I didn't clean them yet so the rugosity in the surface are the rests of the supporting material Shapeways uses for printing but they are no more and no less than I expected so I am happy with them...

Below you see more or les thepositions they will get once the locomobile is built:

The straight spoked ones are the riding wheels
The big one with curved spokes will go on one side of the boiler top moving the long nelt
and the small also curved spoked will be taking the belt at the side of the saw.

Work on the sled for the FET saw progress slowly at the moment but I hope will be already working next week.

It looks good. Have you tried your tilemaker?

Not yet.
I am trying to get a radical new order in both the workrooms.
The only truly valid form of order that I trust is a constantly shifting mix of chaos, attention, and freedom; so for two days now I've been toiling away in a confused cloud doing thirty or forty different things at once without having a clue what I'm doing.
But it is pleasant like an improvised dance of joy without the need for music and the results begin to be seen and they totally convince me.

But I've foun what may be a problem with the tiles making pliers: it seems that working with the two parts mold requieres a lot more force than working with the two pliers as I did before so I hope the Muses will provide de funds (Mr wallet is already empty and needing a lot of patience and care to reach next payment on 20 January to recover) for this beauty:

https://www.hbm-machines.com/producten/ ... gLRrfD_BwE

I have a very good press as this one...

https://www.hbm-machines.com/producten/ ... gIHQvD_BwE

... but it is a lot heavier to use and I should chose between making something as 40 tiles a day or getting back to the gym.
Anyway I couldn't find someone willing to make for me the intermediate tool to use it for small things as the tile mold, so we'll see.

May be once the mold is properly set on the pliers things goes easier.

It seems tomorrow, while I spend another day in the confusion cloud, one of the thing that may happen is that my old riveter jumps on the workbench and starts speaking, so to speak.

That is all PVC forming what I call the skeleton.
Tomorrow (or whenever the impuls for next step comes) all edges will be filed, the sides of the firebox added and filed and then the
'skin' (one or two layers with the rivets and other basic details) will be glued on. But now is snore time.

Things seems to well.
The firebox has got it's outer skeleton.
There is still a 0,5mm styrene layer with the rivets to come but first I must make the ashpan and the plate for the backhead

.. and, yes, the riveter jumped on the workbench...

First a couple of tries so be sure I get the shape and size of rivets I want...

... and once I get it...

Your riviting tool is interesting. I know I would use some sort of punch but I don't worry about rivits so much unless they need to be seen, but that is me. You have a lot of patience.

Oh, yes it is!
At least for someone with eyes as mine, unable to see where to put each rivet. With the proxxon crosstable I just ensure the alignement of the whole piece and count the number of turns I give the handle. So I can make a row of thousand rivets perfectly aligned and distanced without being able to set three of them by eye. Without the machine a rivets circle wouldn't be possible for me.
Nevertheless I see in the enlarged photos every day that the result of my builds must look as jokes for many of those amazing perfeccionists mopdellers. But I have a joker: I really don't care much about the result and never compare what I do because modeling is for me not about products but about the joy of doing.
Patience?
I don't think I have much of it. If something gets boring I am already gone.
That has also an own magic:
I paused building the previous diorama because it had become too evident for myself what should I do next to get it complete. So I started the other diorama and forgot. Yesterday, by chance, I got the paused diorama before my nose...WOW...! I like it a lot and will be there back soon!!!

I could have made 3D drawings for the locomobile and let it print. Actually that was my plan and this time, by rare coincidence, I had the money for it.
But looking at the photos I got tempted to do what I can and let print only what my eyes couldn't afford. And am happy with it even if I notice clearly that 3D printed would have been a lot more realistic. My point is that there is a huge difference between modeling complex parts and spending several days sitting at the computer for clicking and get it done by a machine. You see? The difference is the quality of the time one gets. This way I enjoy a lot more than drawing and I still have de cents for something I really need. For example a bottle of Vallejo primer for the airbrush. And then the issues is...
...patience!
I ordered the primer today but I konw I won't wait until I get the package!
No, no much patience and the little patient I have I need it for dealing with my abundant impatience. :oops:

I’ve missed a few updates it seems. WOW

So, I have tried the NRO (New Room Order) and found it doesn’t work. I can never find anything. But, while watching your posts I managed to turn on the camera in your computer and caught a bit of the happy dance you mentioned.

And for the tile press, you can make something like this for little or no money depending how your salvaged wood supply is. I have started dabbling in cheese making and found these examples of presses. Making the lever longer should give you plenty of power to mash the aluminum.

The first one is a little more complex, but I really think the simple second one would do it.

Are those 3D printed wheels expensive?
