Re: More corrugated aluminum
- If anyone is really keen, I might be persusaded to part with my
exact-to-scale set of rollers for 9mm scale corrugated iron.
There was a lot of machining time involved, so it wouldn't be cheap, but
it might be viable for a supplier to the hobby.
It was used with 0.004inch thick aluminium foil precut in strips to
provide sheets up to 12 scale feet long. It can be used for other
thicknesses of material as bearings for one roller are cam mounted.
- I thought some of you might be interested in watching this
