Default The Making of a model Railroad "ebook"

Very, very informative and needs time to digest. I have one quick question though and that's to do with your soldering gun. I have been bought one as a present, a 100 watt job, and I was wondering do you have to tin the end of the gun or keep it clean and just use it as a heat source?

Hi Ceedee and welcome to AMR, my solder gun is a weller instant heat gun and the solder I use is 40% tin/60%lead needs no flux. When I put a new tip in, I just tin the end with the solder. Also I do keep the tip clean.

Great articles with usefull tips. I think I will try your ballasting method. Does the Jarvis scatter have a part number as I want to order the correct item?

Hi All !
New to the forum here hence the name, (Rookie) :P My real name is Dave.
Just wanted to add my praises for Pauls website/pics.
Outstanding. :blink:
I dropped him a line saying so, and told him he was the inspiration for me getting into
building a layout. I was and am going to do some diesels. But after seeing his logging layout I just had to do a logging layout of my own.
He was also generous enough to send me a copy of his sawmill plan which I am using to build a sawmill.
I'm doing it in HO so I resized it and realized I had better get a magnifying glass too!
I am in the process of putting up drywall plaster in a room I have built in the basement and getting it ready to start building the layout.
I am doing some scratch building on the sawmill when I am not working on that.
Hope to get some pics up as I get it going so ALL of you excellent modelers here can critique it for me and perhaps give some guidance along the way.
CHEERS TO YOU ALL!

P.S. Terrific forum here!

To all who are interested, this ebook will be available soon as a complete download in Zip file as soon as I have it arranged. So it will all be on your own hard-drives for future reference.

Thanks Paul that will be a load off my mind as I was always worried it would disappear before I got to get the full potential out of it. Pat
