  6. Great work on that brass body! It's a shame to hide those axles, but at least you're hiding them under something awesome.

    Those axles are a military secret, Dan. You need at least a secret clearance to view them and from at least 30 yards. I can send you some military paperwork so you can get to see them but I don't have enough refrigerator cartons to put all that paper into.

    5 ton military build
    Ok fellas heres the lates on the 5 ton..
    Made a wooden buck to form the copper over


    Than cut the reliefs in the sides of it.






    then added a block to the bottom so the vise would have something to hold onto.


    then after much pounding and cursing


    Then to finish it off

    Well Stu the camera doesnt pick up on all the dents left by the hammer, but theirs alot of them. Fortunatly their all small so alittle sanding 5 ton military build a little more beating with the hammer and some more sanding 5 ton military build should get out most of it. Im not to worried about getting every imperfection out since I will be weathering 5 ton military build it...

    That's great Crawler. Thanks for showing us how it's done. That's what I'm going to need to experiment with.
