Has anyone here ever built the Western Scale stamp mill in S-scale ?

I know the machines are out of production,
but Wild West Models is now the owner of them,
and has started making them again in S-scale.

Just wanted to know if anyone has ever built the mill in S.
I have seen lots in O.

I haven't seen one in S scale, I have in HO, O and 1:20 scales.

Have you purchased the Stamp Mills book from Western Scale Models?
That is a nice book that includes beyond the great information on stamp mills,
the 20 Stamp Mill complete instructions for the HO scale model kit he used to sell.
I imagine one could always just rescale the plans from HO to S scale.

I too have heard that Wild West Models is coming out with them eventually.
I see the stamps and Wilfley tables, ore crushers, etc. are slowly making their way into production,
and are being added to the website in various scales.

Bill Gustafson is still selling the books on eBay,
that is one item he apparently kept the rights to sell after selling off WSM to WWM.
 


Edited to add this:

A really nice video by Jerry Wilson,
and his Sn3 WSM modified Stamp Mill, that operates and has sound!

It's for sale too, as of 2 years ago still available.

Only $7K but it IS art IMO.

My O scale version.

Build the stamp mill battery first.
Takes time but is great.

You will learn a lot about stamp mills while you research how to build an accurate mill.

The stamp mill battery will make a great piece of detail work even if you never build the rest of the mill.

Hi Jerry, Chriss, Darryl, Ken & all !  :wave:



As well as Jerrys recent S-scale 'Western Scale Models' inquiry Thread ...  L:

... there was previously, also Darryls O-scale 'Western Scale Models' Thread.  :cool:



BOTH with interesting comments from Members as usual ! ...  :thumb:

... & relevant perhaps, to building the kit in HO, S, O, or ANY scale for that matter.



Chriss said ^^ he has seen a model in 1:20 !! scale.  :shocked:

More details please, if you have them Chriss.  :)



I have joined the 2 Threads together & the Posts appear in date order as normal ...

... it may make things on the same subject easier to find.  ???

The 'merged' Thread has been moved to here, in the 'Kitbuilding' Forum as well.



If anyone has anything that would be interesting, or aid builders in ANY scale ...  :dt:

... please add any stamp-mill stuff which may be useful to the Thread.  :)





I'd like to know Darryls 'secrets' to getting ^^ that  C :cool: :cool: L  wood weathering, on his model.  L:

Got any more pics. Darryl ?  ???



Thanks Jerry & Darryl for bringing these stamp-mill kits to our attention.  :thumb:

Si.

My method of staining wood is the lazy man's way.

I use Franklin Brand leather dyes mixed in alcohol.
I use both black and brown dyes.

I don't mix according to percentages.
I just pour black and brown together into a bottle of alcohol and stain a test strip of wood.

If it is just right, I use it.
If too light, I add more dye.
If too dark, I pour some of the mix out and add more alcohol.

The hardest parts to build are the two feeders.
They sit behind the stamp mill battery and cannot be easily seen anyway.
