    EeZeBilts From Keil Kraft
    My son has a couple of 3D printers and has made me several slot car chassis, guides and even gears, a motor pod for an RC glider, a camera pod for a flying wing model and a dummy Ford Model A engine and
    for a Peitenpol high wing model aircraft. Painted and attached that today. Motor pod is on the glider, waiting to go. I just wish I could design in CAD for him. We have to go with free files off Thingiverse. Martin

    Casting a lead bulb keel
    Your experiences with mould-making make for interesting reading. I have never used plaster for casting lead but I do have extensive knowledge of using surgical plaster to make female moulds for vac-forming polystyrene sheet. My moulds are far smaller than yours but I have found that they MUST be thoroughly dry or you have problems. As a result I dry moulds for up to a week on top of a
    or the hot water tank. I test it by tapping with a small hammer. If I get a ceramic 'clink' like hitting a modern house brick, then it is good to go. With the sort of volume you have there, the drying could take much longer.

    "In all the years that I have been model making I have never done this or know of anyone who has." You do now Martin๐Ÿ˜‰ I've been doing it for years, still do when I use brushed motors. Also on brushed pump and auxiliary motors; radar etc. Oh! But connect to the prop tube (aka stuffing box) NOT the shaft ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Also note his comment about a single earth point. This prevents so called ground loops (no- not pranging a plane on the runway!) These loops in the earthing wiring can act as
    s and are often the cause of humming in audio amplifiers, hi-fis for instance. Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
