Restorations / Re: Restoration of Doll 365
« Last post by Hassellbear on 2 hours ago »
A bit more work on the Doll after taking a break. Since the boiler had to come off for repair, it made sense to change the color of the base from machinery grey with sharpie penstripes to a more original green with painted pinstripes. The straight striping was laid down with a Beugler pinstriping tool, and the curves were masked and painted with a brush. Not a perfect job by any means, but better than before. I intended to paint a light green stripe inside of the red one, but I’m gonna stop while I’m ahead.

Now on to the boiler repair.

Did something creative with the set holes in the plinth.  When steaming this will help prevent hot condensate from hitting your skin. Not to mention a bit more realistic for a whistle tower. [ Guests cannot view attachments ] [ Guests cannot view attachments ] [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

I am the proud owner of this saw from Geoff’s estate.

And it does cut wood nicely!

Here is a video I made:

I can’t believe Clinton would sell that! Another thing I should make for kids to try at shows…

Runs much better with the Jensen Boiler.

Thanks for sharing the video Travis.

I believe I bought this from Clinton several years ago.

It has set on the shelf gathering dust.

Thanks for getting it working Travis.

Thanks Nick. I’ll see what I can come up with.
I wish Cringle model steam would reply. I keep sending emails but no answer.
