Resistance Soldering Outfit FOR SALE

Dave Powell <daveydiesel@...>
 

100w, 110v SOLDERING OUTFIT WITH TWEEZERS:
Resistance Soldering -- the Easy, Professional Way to Solder

This will be one of the most useful tools you'll ever purchase for
model building. It will save you countless hours and make soldering a
far less tedious and difficult task. How it works: Just hold the part
to be soldered in the handpiece and depress the foot switch. The power
supply passes a safe low voltage, high amperage electrical current
through the part, instantly heating it to soldering temperatures.
Apply solder, then release the foot switch. The bond is complete -- in
just seconds! The heat is generated only in the workpiece, so other
pieces you've already soldered won't fall off. And since you choose
the amount of heat you need at the power supply (from 15—50—100
Watts), you can solder everything from the tiniest etched parts to
heavy castings. A resistance soldering unit concentrates heat at the
joint, so it will heat larger work than will a conventional soldering
iron of the same power. Use for soldering power feeds to model
railroad track (the fast, pinpoint concentration of heat won't melt
nearby plastic ties), brass trestle construction, turnout fabrication,
rail joining, brass scratch-built items, ship model railings, fittings
and more. Works on any material that can be soldered. Use for delicate
work: fine wire, chain, etched detail parts, RR rail. , castings,
brass structural shapes, etc. American Beauty brand made in the USA to
heavy-duty industrial standards. Buy it today for the fastest,
easiest, cleanest solder joints you've ever seen. This is a used unit
that I have had since new. I guarantee it still works just like the
day I purchased it but it is being sold as is.. Comes with the Power
Source, Tweezers and foot switch. I also have about 4 new pair of
extra tips for the tweezers. Pictures upon request. New
$465.00/Micro Mark $380.00……..my price $285.00 + shipping. Please
contact me off list at daveydiesel@netamumail.com if interested.
Thanks,
Dave Powell Iowa

Re: color photo NWX reefer

Tim O'Connor
 

I weathered my Overland Milwaukee URTX reefer with a wash pattern
over the reporting marks, but I just didn't like it even though I've seen it
many times on many reefer photos. So I traded to Byron Rose for his
undec version of the car, to start over. Sometimes you just can't shake
the preconceptions... This time I'll make it REALLY grungy. I've have to
anyway because I can't find any more of those excellent decals to do
the fancy 4-color paint scheme.

It actually looks like my truck did when I let my 7 year old daughter
wash it for fun last weekend. You could obviously see how high her
reach was limited to and she just rearranged the dirt in those areas
she could reach.
Excellent point. There are a number of reefer photos, for various
reefer owners, which show this kind of ineffective partial washing,.

Re: color photo NWX reefer

You may have hit the nail on the head with your comment about your
seven year old washing your truck.

No reflection on your daughter - I suspect that a half-hearted
attempt had been made to wash the car. Given its existence in 1967
it was unusual, so perhaps it received some [incomplete] attention.

Don,
I was thinking the same thing. The weathering pattern on the car is so unique that it would probably not look "prototypical" when modeled. If you modeled this weathering pattern, it would be in your best interest to be the purchaser of that slide so you can prove that it is prototypical.

Tim,

Thanks for the point in that direction. It's still
surprising how many of those wood stem winders were
still floating around at that late a date. If you knew
where to look they could be found in a number of places
in the Chicago Area. While there were a host of Mather
cars at Chicago Ridge they were behind fences. On the
other hand near Ashland Ave Yard there was an open light
repair facility that appeared to have been abandoned
in place. Some of the cars had ladders tilted against
their sides but I never saw anyone working on anything.
The MC yard at Kensington was also wide open. The light
repair facility was still going but at a very slow pace.

While I know there may be some of those "color shifting"
experts out there that will be ready to diss that photo
it matches my mental image of the colors used on those
cars at that point in time.

Gimme some time to find it, but I'm pretty sure I do have a shot
of one near Everett WA on the GN... I think I stored that photo
together with the shot of the N&W hoppers on Sherman Hill that I
sent some time ago to Mike Brock.

Hi,
FWIW, this will be my last attempt to sell these.I don't want to
break up the set so that is why I am selling them all at once. I have
them listed again as eBay didn't like my last listing as I said I
wanted 3% more if bought through PayPal and I found out that is a
no-no with eBay.
Thanks for your interest. Dave Powell Iowa

Good news, You can have as many as you want in O scale thanks to Sunset 3rd rail.
