Hello logging railroaders,
what would be a logging railroad without loggers and their tools? As I model in a scale of 1:7.2 (42mm scale) I’ve to build most of the details parts on my own as well.
Today we’ll start with a pair of peaveys, used to handle and load logs in the woods. The needed parts are made from steel by using the lathe, milling machine, angle grinder and files.
To get the trees down, I made also two faller saws from a real saw-blade and some husks to hold the handles. These parts are soft-soldered, which is strong enough for “detail-display-use”.
Anyhow, all these tools are fully functional. This will become a bit more difficult when making axles. Therefore I’ll show you the latest upgrades on my logging flatcars next week ;-)
