Brand New Hammer Ring!

Recommended Posts

Allll right.........................so i might have told a porky pie!

 

 

I have been quietly (probably not so quiet according to neighbours) working on a brand spanking new track, i kept it quiet for about 4mths whilst working on it off and on.

 

I asked someone else for a bit of advice and the cat was out of the bag as his lips flapped to someone else what was going on!!!!!

 

So here is the first piccy of many of my new track,

None of us know anything about a rumour of a new Hammer Ring. <_<

 

In fact, what was/is/will be a Hammer Ring, and who is that "tacker maker" you're talking about, I've never heard of him.... :D

 

4 months . . . . 4 months . . . . . and the MDF is still naked...... get a wriggle on, we're waiting for results - too much talking on forum and not enough woodworking, that's yer problem mate. I could recommend you a good power tools salesman if you're short in that department. :lol::lol::lol:

 

 

Hey Slider, good to see you stranger, you've been quieter than a churchmouse in recent months

Gday slotsnz!

 

about 4mths ago my wife had number bubs no #2, this has somewhat haampered my time in the shed, its been a big job just getting it to this stage!

 

 

As for you Rob, there wont be any calls of under the bridge unless your car fails there or the track does, theres no squeeze under the bridge, theres no corner leading into the bridge.

 

 

 

I really didnt want to show anyone the track or design until it was almost complete, just didnt want a whole host of "helpful comments" to distract me from building a track that i wholly and solely designed, also didnt want certain people pointing out mistakes or the rest of it!

 

 

 

No doubt in my mind there will be whining as always tho...........eeeeewwww............you made that corner toooo tight...............eeeeeew i dont like the bridge................eeeewwwwww you need to do this or that...........................Brian knows exactly what i mean seeing as he was the last track builder in the club.......

Will Fly Racing Trucks fit under the bridge? Both directions? And upside down with downforce (or upforce) equivalent to an F1 car?

 

If not.. FAIL!

 

Nah, all jokes aside, looks very good mate, and just keep building at your own pace, and the hell with everyone else! It's your track, you're designing it and routing it for yourself.

 

You should have gone 4 lanes though..... I'm kidding! :D

 

I look forward to turning some laps around there whenever.

Looks to me like it should be a track with plenty of room for fun.

Relax and enjoy the build.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

Worked on the track over the weekend! Got more little inconsistencies out of a few of the corners where bog had come away during routing of the recess for the braid.

I suppose thats the good thing about undercoating, it shows up pretty quickly where you need to do more work before the topcoat goes on!
