    Totally unrelated to ShopBot but same customer. The wife had this old garden planter that was falling apart and she was going to toss it. So I looked at it and immediately thought train, (I know big surprise). So did a rebuild and ended up with a neat little water tower for the tracks. Russ

    Really liking the realistic roof Russ....what material and how did you make it?
    Kinda expected John Wayne double swinging Saloon doors for dramatic entrances(and Exits
    BUT then remembered your snow...and models probably have to be buttoned up pretty well.
    Looking forward to church also

    Thanks Scott. In our hobby most enthusiasts are machinist hobbyist not wood workers. So one of our members made a machine that has opposing rollers machined to those ripples. Think old time washing machine rollers. The material is off the shelf aluminum flashing. I cut the size I want plus 15% for width and feed them into the machine. For this particular model I didn't want the shiny look, so it's been rattle canned. Iv'e used this method before. Russ

    Russ, great job bro. I love that someone made a tin roller. And interesting factoid about the %15 reduction. Looking forward to the church.
