    Miniature arbor press

    Another PMR model in dollhouse scale (1:12), this arbor press actually works. Both the rack and pinion and the handle extension adjustment are functional. The table rotates and has three different size slots to accomodate pushing out various sized pins.



    For a better idea of the scale, here it sits in front of its real world size big brother...

    Very nice work. Did you model the rest of the shop or is that a longer term project?

    I did intend to model the entire shop but life intervened. I got no further than building a test rig to work out the details of the overhead belt drive. You can see it here...

    The rest of the stuff you have the other link is incredible. Everyone should follow the link in your reply. Real life often intrudes, but you've got a wonderful start!
