This project is the reason I was testing suspending objects in resin. Unfortunately, the tests showed that a witness line is unavoidable once you turn the blanks. So, instead of fighting it, I used it to my advantage!
In this video I go through making the blank as well as turning it on the lathe. I’m really happy to be able to share a plan of attack to deal with that witness line. This was a fun project to make, and I want to thank John for hooking me up with a T Gauge train car with my logo on it to use for the video. How cool is that!!
