    3-D Printers

    Flashing LED circuit?

    looks very similar to the one I photographed, the capacitors might be a bit smaller, but not a big deal ... the default rate was about 1 flash per second .. the price is a bit higher, but not much either ..

    What brand of DAP to use for laying foam/ cork roadbed and track ?

    NMRA Standards Gauge

    I used an On30 Forney to accomplish much the same purpose , the only piece of On30 that I have, lol It was easier to use than the gauge, I have two or three of the gauges, I keep misplacing them...
