THIS IS A FEW PICTURES OF MY WORKSHOP AND SOME PROJECTS I'VE BEEN WORKING ON.

THE PICTURE OF THE BREAD BOARD WITH THE ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS AND LEDS IS A PROJECT I'M WHERE I'M TRYING BUILD A CIRCUIT THAT WILL CHANGE STREET LIGHTS AUTOMATICALLY.

THERE IS ALSO A FEW PHOTOS OF AN N SCALE TELEPHONE POLE WITH A COBRA HEAD STREET LIGHT ATTACHED. IT HAS A RULER NEXT TO IT IN ONE OR TWO SHOTS TOO SHOW IT'S SIZE OF 2 INCHES (5.1 MM). (THE RULER IN THE PICTURE IS SLIGHTLY MISLEADING BECAUSE IT HAS AN EXTRA 1/8TH INCH BETWEEN THE EDGE OF THE RULER AND THE ACTUAL MEASURING AREA) I AM GOING TO SCALE DOWN THE SIZE OF THE COBRA HEAD LIGHT HOUSING AND THE CURVED BRASS TUBE IT IS MOUNTED ON. THE BRASS TUBE IS 1.5 MM IN DIAMETER. I AM CURRENTLY EXPERIMENTING WITH 1 MM DIAMETER BRASS TUBE TO USE FOR MOUNTING THE LIGHT HOUSING TO THE TELEPHONE POLE. IT WILL CUT DOWN THE DIAMETER BY 1/3. I'M ALSO WORKING ON A SMALLER COBRA HEAD LIGHT HOUSING AND I THINK THE LENS NEEDS TO PROTRUDE LESS. WHEN I FINISH WITH THOSE CHANGES;I THINK IT WILL LOOK A LOT MORE AUTHENTIC. THE FINAL TOUCHES WILL BE DUPLICATING THE CERAMIC INSULATOR DISKS THAT (ON ACTUAL LIFE SIZE POLES) ARE BETWEEN THE POWER LINES AND THE PEG THEY ARE ATTACHED TO ON THE CROSS BEAM AND FINISHING THE PIECE WITH SOME DARKER FLAT BROWN PAINT. I MAY TRY GRAY IN PLACE OF THE STEEL COLOR FOR THE LIGHT HOUSING AND MOUNTING POLE OR MAYBE A COMBINATION.                                                                                                                                                             

I ADDED A LASER BEAM I GOT ON E-BAY TO MY ELECTRIC CHOP SAW FOR BETTER ACCURACY. IT WORKS BETTER THAN I'D HOPED.

I'M CONSTANTLY ADDING TO MY COLLECTION OF CLAMPS, VICES AND SPECIALTY TOOLS.

THERE IS ALSO A FEW PHOTOS OF THE LATEX MOLDS I MADE TO FORM VARIOUS LIGHT HOUSING AND LIGHT SHADES.

HO AND N SCALE BILLBOARD.

THIS BILLBOARD CAN BE REPRODUCED IN HO SCALE (SMALL, MEDIUM AND LARGE)

N SCALE (MEDIUM AND LARGE).

THE ADVERTISING SURFACE CAN HAVE ANYTHING YOU WANT PRINTED ON IT AND IS COVERED WITH .005 INCH CLEAR PLASTIC AND HELD IN PLACE WITH 1/8 INCH 90 DEGREE ANGLED STYRENE FOR HO SCALE AND 1/16 INCH 90 DEGREE ANGLED STYRENE FOR N SCALE. THE LEGS ON THE BILLBOARD CAN BE MADE USING A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT SHAPED BALSA OR STYRENE (SQUARE, EYE BEAM ECT..)

I WILL BE MAKING A HOW-TO VIDEO ON BILLBOARDS AND WILL PUT A LINK TO IT ON THIS WEBSITE WHEN IT'S COMPLETE.

DO YOU HAVE A UNIQUE LIGHTING IDEA. YOUR OWN DESIGN YOU  CAME UP WITH AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT ON YOUR LAYOUT! LET ME BUILD IT FOR YOU. WE CAN WORK TOGETHER, STEP BY STEP, BY E MAIL OR BY PHONE EXCHANGING IDEAS ON HOW TO GET THE PIECE YOU HAVE IN MIND ONTO YOUR LAYOUT. I WILL SEND YOU PICTURES OF THE PROGRESS THROUGH EACH STEP.

   WHEN I FINISH A CUSTOM PIECE I SEND IT OUT TO YOU, THE DESIGNER/CUSTOMER, FOR YOU TO INSPECT BEFORE A PRICE IS MUTUALLY   AGREED BETWEEN US. THEN AND ONLY THEN, WHEN YOU ARE COMPLETELY SATISFIED AND YOU HAVE INSPECTED THE PIECE FOR ANY FLAWS OR CHANGES YOU MAY DECIDE YOU WANT TO MAKE ONCE YOU ARE PHYSICALLY HOLDING IT INSTEAD OF LOOKING AT A PICTURE AND IT FITS YOUR LAYOUT JUST AS YOU WANTED IT, THEN I WILL  I ACCEPT PAYMENT.

   ANYTHING LESS THEN COMPLETE SATISFACTION FOR YOU, MY VALUED CUSTOMER, ON ANY OF MY PRODUCTS; CUSTOM MADE OR ORDERED FROM THE PRODUCT PAGE, IS NOT ACCEPTABLE . IT WAS MY IDEA FROM THE START FOR FRANK'S MODEL TRAIN STREET LIGHTS TO STAND FOR QUALITY AND DETAIL.
