Alan, with my iMac20 desktop, photos 2,3,4 and 5 didn't appear, nor did photos 7and 8. Am wondering whether anyone else had same problem. Anyway, thanks for a fascinating post!

It's amazing what can be done with 3D printing.

I'm wowed . You and your father are as much excellent to work wood as metal You are both artists and I'have learned quite a lot about casting through those pics and comments. I think it's a real chance for the WW&F to have guys like you.

Very impressive. For those who may not know how air brakes or in this case vacuum brakes work, these controllers can be extremely tedious work. Job well done to everyone involved and I look forward to seeing the finished product.
