    I jst finished my scratchbuilt pile driver that was sitting in a box unfinished for about 3 years:


    It's entirely scratchbuilt with no comercial castings except a handful of grandt Line NBW castings. The dokey engine is a mix of styrene shapes and clock gears. The boiler is a cut down rifle shell with a homemade spark arrestor on it.



    Now I can go back to finish my sawmill project...

    No the pile driver has nothing to do with the sawmill, except that it's on my logging spur. It is used for driving , of all things, piles for trestles and other structures.
