    Default Playing with the laser cutter

    Playing around with the laser cutter at work. Made an ID plate on the fan shroud (it's between the coil and the air cleaner). It's a whole 9.5 mm wide X 4 mm high. Also started thinking about the interior. Here's an inner door panel idea, it's styrene, need to fine tune the laser cutter settings for this though.

    Tried to make it like this one.

    Sherman looks really neat in those seats, nice attention to detail.

    Well, rather than work on the car my boy convinced me to go out crawling at the Blackfoot RC Park again. Didnít take too much convincing I must say. Besides, had to see the new bridge.

    I was cleaning off the bench today and found a teeny, tiny spring from an N scale train. Figured what the heck, I've got a set of micro drill bits and I've never used the #80 bit, or anything close to that small for that matter, let's see if I can't drill a couple of holes and attach a throttle spring. Here's the result. Might try again where I don't bend the spring too much. Not sure what's missing a spring now though...

    Thanks! Now to see if I can get one on that's not all stretched out of shape.

    Not too much going on these days. Did a bit of work to get ready for last weekeend's GCM Adventure Series at the Blackfoot RC Park. Just added a cover behind the seats to hide the battery and lighting electronics. You can see it here in a few of these shots taken this afternoon over at BFRC.

    Out to the Blackfoot RC Park again for another GCM Call to Crawl event today. This park rocks!

    It was pretty smoky from the forest fires in British Columbia.
