Michael

I'll need to get to my downstairs workshop to make it,
so that is on hold for a bit.

I'm looking for one of those plastic drink stirrers,
that might do the same.

Regards, Dave L.

A new company I've discovered that has interesting vehicles is The Yorkshire Co. 

This 1987 offering of a 1927 Ford Model TT in 1/25 is a nice model,
and was a promotion of Bell Telephone. 

The Bell logo was a sticker and peeled off easily. 

Sadly, my model arrived damaged with a broken front wheel,
which will be hard to repair. 

These are available on Ebay and would work well on my Gn15 layout. 

Regards, Dave L.

Well, Dave, you got me thinking.

I kinda needed something to stir paint with also.


So I came up with this:





Made out of scrap pieces of brass. 

And it works!


Only one question remains... how long will it take me to loose this.

That looks like a neat device. 

Do you slip it over the hole in the cap or just stir without the cap?

I just take the cap off, stick in and let it spin!

Never thought of having it go through the hole in the cap. 
I suppose you could using a smaller diameter rod. 

But, I'm wondering how much of a hassle or mess it would be,
removing the stirrer after mixing the paint.

Might be worth a try just to see how it works.

I envisioned a huge splatter if I stuck it in the jar and pulled the trigger. 

Never thought to spin it slowly.  

Must be brain fog.

Often during construction projects weight is needed to hold parts in position while glue dries. 

One day, needing something quick, I grabbed a few rolls of pennies that were on the desk. 


Thereafter I kept penny rolls handy on the work space to aid in building  projects.

Dave,

Interesting idea using coin rolls for weights.

I use a variety of large nuts (like nuts and bolts)
that I've picked up at Home Depot, for weights when gluing things together. 

They're cheap, and I'm all about being cheap when possible. 

You can lay them flat or on edge depending on the circumstances.
