I'm building a factory of sorts.

My son really likes the beats: https://youtu.be/h9pVuevRinw

Very nice Chris!  8)  They do look a lot better and more authentic with the overhead lineshafts, just wish permanent workshop setups didn't take up so much shelf space...

Chris, loved the workshop, but really enjoyed your son's discovery process...what a curious boy and an engineer in the making for sure.

He's helping me belt up the third line. :) Not as simple as it seems since the pulley ratios must be correct. We do testing with an electric Gilbert motor as a stand in.

Looks great and I do like overhead line-shafts as was mostly done traditionally. I think I like it near as well as Ethan does!!!

I like models like this. Your pole barn is really cool.
