    Default Well not gun related but still fun

    Im into machining and I love steam locomotives, so here is a pic I took of some parts of a live steam locomotive I am building. Used mainly my southbend 9" lathe and a Harbor freight micro mill to do all of this.

    Looking good. Is that the frame and wheels for the tender? I have a lot of H.O. scale, and a little bit of G scale stuff. I just drop my jaw at some of that live steam stuff, and would love to have some myself.
