Re: HO Truck Bolster Clearance Hole

Denny,
Consider making some "bushings" with the proper o.d. rather than
drilling out the bolsters. This is a quick and dirty method to
resolve the disparity between the screw o.d. and the truck i.d.

Well, I would certainly agree, but in my experience fabricating
bushings of the proper depth and diameter is commonly much easier said
than done, and it is just one more one-off part to lose. Slicing off
rings from reamed-out styrene tubing might work, if it can be done
without crushing the tubing in the process.

H-mmm.
