GNRi Class VS Machined Rods in Gauge 1

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


Here are a few photos of a set of Coupling & Connecting Rods for a Gauge 1 GNRi Class VS, fresh off the bench. They were machined from mild steel EN8 flats & sheet,  the coupling rod axle centres is 103mm, I thought I'd photo them up against my trusty Gauge 00 171 for scale comp. The tapered route in the connecting rods was a bit of a task, it required a jig to allow the rod to swing a bit to allow cutting the taper route in the mill. Little lengths of .8mm NS wire are loctite-ed in a drilled hole to imitate the plug on the oil boxes on top of rods- ready now for their owner and I look forward to seeing them run......
