    Guys

    Mistake
    I noticed that in the video, I mention creating a new axle for the second metal gear after the pinion using a cut down 3mm drill bit. This is a mistake. In the final version, I...

    Hi Hurricane

    Doing good. Not too much snow though in my neck of the woods so sledding has been limited.
