Hard to beleave, but actually, the trucks are more holes than parts… I cut the last planks for the bolsters and made some movie clips, showing how fast one can work with good preparation and jigs/stop blocks…

Next I drilled 200+ holes into the 24 wood pieces. Most of them are to screw the bolsters together with M4 bolts and nuts. Some holes and at least some hardware is still missing, but the trucks were making good progress.

At least, I drilled the spring pockets with a 12mm milling bit. Next I can pre-assemble the bolsters and once the last hardware is done as well, I can start to set the trucks together.
