Brian O’s Tank shop

Post by Brian Ostlind » Fri Jun 28, 2019 9:02 pm

Hey everyone!

Sorry I have been MIA but I am moving my shop into a new area. Can’t wait to work on my models in this fantastic space. Here it is. I will keep posting as the move progresses here and my other build threads across the board.

Nice Brian! I’m hoping to build a workshop to! Makes working on any project so much easier with a large clean space!

Looking forward to it.

Hope your new area does not end up like mine with hardly any room for me to move around.

Thanks Steen, Tiger is going ok. Just frustrated worked on it all morning and keep throwing the track off. I think I bent the swing arm on one side with too much force now I am trying to bend it back into shape.

At least it’s in the shop but I’m having some problems with alignment if I can’t fix it in the next couple days I am going to tear it down all the way to the last nut and bolt then rebuild it.

Sorry to hear you are still having problems. Did you try checking wheel alignment with a metal tube or rod like Phil did (https://www.armortek.co.uk/Forum3b/view ... 7&start=30)? If the problem is on one side did you try swapping around the sprockets?

Just a thought.

We are good to go. Got the tracks straightened out and I’m showing some of my most handy tools off too.

Some shop details...

Purdy paint brush for dust and my beautiful Futaba radio.

I am leaving all the internal components out until I finish construction.

I hope to store parts in this plastic drawer.

I have a pre made copula waiting to go...
