This evening have cut holes in the walls with a circular saw.

Then milled them to a rectangular shape,
with a cutter intended for steel cutting held in my large trusty drill press.

Looks really awful but will be covered then anyway.

" This evening have cut holes in the walls with a circular saw "


Hi Gerold  :wave:


I may have just answered my question  ???  whilst Posting !  L:


To me, a 'circular-saw' is a machine with a large eg. 8" 'circular' blade ...

... I was thinking, how on earth ... ?


But I guess you used what I know as a 'hole-saw' ...  ???

... like maybe a 1/2" dia. cutter, with a 1/4" drill-bit in the middle, on a mandrel ?  L:





The woodwork ^^ is lookin' ACE !  :thumb:


:java::moose: :dt:


Si.

Si,

Yes, a hole saw.

To be honest, I don't even know exactly how this thing is named in German...  Lochsäge? 

Unfortunately, the downsized wooden model has been abandoned again....
When placed at the layout, it looked very wrong and out of proportion....  

Will start again with a blank sheet.

Stage III !

Went to club layout, full of frustration.

Attacked the mockup with a Saber saw...
Cut 2 cm from the bottom, removed the front part,
but stretched the left part that is supposed to hold the four boilers. 

Between actions, always placed it on the layout to check optics. 
I am rather happy with it now.











Now for the actual structure.... 

But, while tinkering with mockups, windows and corrugated sheeting have arrived.

So nothing may stop me now!

Gerold

Still an impressive structure in it's own right!

:glad: :glad: :glad:

" Lochsäge ? "


Hi Gerold  :wave:



I thought those were the special shorts, for wearing whilst drinking beer.  [toast]

;)


Your descriptions are 5***** BTW Gerold ...  :thumb:

... typically VERY late at night/morning for me probably ...
... I was probably considering Quantum Physics & square-holes !  :brill:



I once co-organized the transportation, of a full Austrian brass bands instruments ...

... to arrive synchronized with (loads of) them, for a boat cruise on the River Thames !  :shocked:


LHR airport customs ...  :dope:

" No officer, they are a traditional Austrian brass band, they don't smoke crack ...

... I've no idea what all the white stuff on the tuba is, 'Brasso'(TM) perhaps ? "

:time:

Last part of the journey from LHR airport customs, to Central London was the most fun ...

... in a Bedford Luton full of brass, the apex-speeds would have impressed Niki Lauda !


:mex:


Si.

Third edition.... 

Changed concept, didn't use a solid wood construction,
to avoid to have to cut a myriad of window openings... 

Left some pieces with no or only few windows,
but otherwise built a frame which will cover with cardboard,
and then wood siding or, mostly corrugated sheets.
