Re: Wabash War Emergency Boxcar Part Five
So I suspect I know the answer to this question, but just how much magnification do you need to do this kind of work? And what jigs to drill the small holes in parts for each “pipe”.
Taking the time is one thing, but just getting the tools to bite in the right location and make useful holes . . . Looks like quite the challenge. All hand work, or using a rotary tool?
Love what you are accomplishing Bill!

When assembling the brake system on a house car my goal is to make it look accurate when viewed from the side and take as a given it is always in shadow. I want to be able to "see through" places where there should be daylight like the
chain links, rods, and clevices and that components are generally the correct shape and in the correct place. When viewed from the bottom of the car I don't much care how it looks.
