2 inch burrell driving truck kit 2

Post  miller on Thu 25 Feb 2010, 1:51 pm

yes we are still working on this but as you can see, it's quite a large kit.



but don't worry, as quite a lot of stuff has already been done, starting with the axles...





and part of the footrest assembly...



the foot rests are also nearly done.

this little lot will make up the leaf springs...



and we are steadily working out way through all the wood...









can you guess what these are Wink ...



it's been a hectic week but hopefully this kit will also go out quite soon and then all the new kits will be back on track.

just a few more progress photos...

top springs after forming...



foot rest sub-frames...



and a quick shot of the control model area. if you look close you can see the first set of springs being test fitted on the axle...

this kit should now be going out on Wednesday due to the springs needing to get back from heat treating.

the control model is going together fine and we just have a bit of countersinking to do, well 1600 holes actually Mad

here's some photos....

as said, the kit has gone. we did make one small mistake Embarassed we only packed one draw bar anti snatch rod in each kit instead of two Shocked we only realised this as the kits were actually going out of the door. all kits that went out today are being followed by the other draw bar in a jiffy bag, in-fact you may get that first, so don't be surprised when you only get one part Rolling Eyes all other kits will be changed.

as you will see, it's quite a big kit, and don't forget we had to make a batch of 50, so that's why it took a bit of time.

here we are testing the springs...

left to right: Lee (boiler making/welding), Ian (manual work/welding) and Me (CNC/production management/a bit of forum)



probably around 35 stone on there and the springs don't bottom out...



hope you enjoy the kit, feedback welcome as always,

Craig

It would only be fair to add Craig to the cast and he's the equivalent of the character 'The Verger' from the show. Pictured below Very Happy Very Happy

it would seem that there has been a typo on the packing list for this kit Embarassed Embarassed

part W20240 reads "turntable top leaf spring". it should really read "front top leaf spring".

you will find these in a bag marked "leaf spring sets", with all the other leaf springs including the "rear leaf springs".

the front top leaf springs have both ends open, the rears have one end closed.

it would also seem that a couple of people have had some items missing. please check your kits and contact us now so we can send any missing parts out.

sorry about these mistakes Embarassed
