Re: "Dremel" accessories

Thanks Stephen,

I'm a bit scared by that particular tool. Great website though. I'll probably buy some of the nice proxxon bits and build up to buying the handset.

Cheers

"Dremel" accessories

Hello, I've worn out the bits my Dad gave me (nice small cones of grinding material). I'm now struggling to find somewhere that will sell me more of those rather than huge sets of stuff I don't think I want/need. What do you gurus use? Please could you recommend supplier/manufacturers? Are diamond b...

Re: Tiger 1 QA and QB tracks advice please

Some failed links that didn't have the square bit removed:

(about half way down)

Of the ones I've done so far some are quite stiff and don't have limited movement. I might work on those more if there really is a chance of them snapping.

Re: sturmtiger build at last

The texture is very impressive. How do you do it? I need to put it on my Dad's todo list.

Re: Tiger 1 (Early Variant) 2004 #98 build

Many thanks Peter,

I'll get my dad to check.

Also I'm watching the very helpful video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RzPtX2w7gQ

Some amazingly talented people building these tanks.

Cheers

Tiger 1 (Early Variant) 2004 #98 build

My Dad is building the bulk of the tank in the UK NW, I'm doing the elecs/tracks in SE and we promised the original buyer to share our build progress (or otherwise). I've laid out the electronics to try and understand what connects to what. DSC_3482.JPG With the help of lots of labels I think it is ...

Re: Tiger 1 QA and QB tracks advice please

Thanks Adrian,

That is the bit I'll attack first. On some of them there is a big bump on the other side too that I might reduce.

Presumably the steel sprocket will grind away any bit and pieces, hence the need to smooth the sprockets.

Thanks again

Re: Tiger 1 QA and QB tracks advice please

Adrian,

Doh. I have the 2003 Tiger, sorry.

I'm leaning towards just removing the square bit mentioned in the instructions. It is definitely going to be a muddy tank.

My Dad and I have been lusting after Armortek tanks for years so I'm a bit anxious before making the first cut.

Thanks

Re: Tiger 1 QA and QB tracks advice please

Thanks Adrian,

This is a 2013 Tiger so it has that fault.

Tiger 1 QA and QB tracks advice please

Hello all, Before I make 200 mistakes is it reasonable to: * File off the square bit where the outer sprocket goes? (I think this is in the instructions) * Dremmel off the small round casting marks * Bench grinde any large bumps on the round bit? DSC_3481.JPG (two QA at the top then two QB at the bo...
