Now that the Proctor House is constructed (though not painted yet) I will be starting the Tool Shed. Since there are still four buildings left to model (Tool Shed, Grainery, Sugar Shack, & their Garage) I will use this thread to do all four, because they are not vary large nor complicated.

The tool shed is very similar to the barn, actually it is the upper portion of the barn roof sitting down on a foundation. There will be one challenging area of the tool shed, which I will get into soon enough. I think you will all get a laugh out of this one. Or more likely you will think I have lost my mind.

The real problem is, after building that Silo, I really think I can build anything! So stick around and watch me more than likely make a fool of myself.

Wayne

The Tool Shed will begin this thread. Here are three photos of the prototype. It is used to store lawn mowers, truck, tractor, boat, and a catch all for junk. Don't we all have that stuff to store?





If you could take off the top portion of the barn roof and set it on a foundation of some sort, that would be this Tool Shed. So most of what I built for the barn (knowledge) will be used here.

In the beginning there was a foundation, and here it is. The flat stock at the bottom of the door openings will ultimately get cut out. It's there just for support right now.



The trusses! The one at the bottom of the photo is the front truss. It is made shorter because it has been requested that I make that door a roll up garage type door. One that will actually roll up. The owner of the Tool Shed wants to put one in and would like to see what it looks like with it installed. (Our son)

Has anyone ever seen a roll up garage door that rolls up, in HO Scale? Well here's my thinking, I will design it (already done) and build it, and if it doesn't actually roll up, well I will glue it all together and just model it closed! Should be fun getting to that point at any rate.


Starting to assemble the trusses.




Well it's a beginning.

Wayne

More assembly on the Tool Shed's roof.










The basic shape is now done, but I now need to go inside and do some reinforcing of the flat panels.

How are you going to trim the overhang between the two roof sections Wayne? Looks tricky to get into and get a straight line?

Marty,
I think what you are seeing is just a figment of the camera's imagination. The edges of the roof's metal are actually very straight. They do over hang the lower section just a little (about 1/32") because that's what they do on the prototype. I guess that helps to keep it from leaking water.

In looking at that last photo, the edge looks like it's in a long arc. The model doesn't do that, so it's got to be the lens of the camera. Maybe I had it set on the "Fish Eye" mode? :mutley

Wayne

Here we go, i just love these things your building. This looks really interesting and listen mate, we dont do half measures on here, so that door has to roll up ok. What about useing one of those table mats you can get, they roll up. So maybe you could cut to the size and then fix it to a some sort of rounded wood? Just a thought, but i am no modeler like you, :thumbs

I hear you Phill, and I'm working on it! I will give it my best effort.

And in that tone, here are several photos showing the production of the hardware for the back of the overhead door.

The assembly on the door is just sitting there for show purposes, to give you an idea on where it fits. There will be one assembly at each joint of the door panels.


A closer view of the hinge assembly.


The roller shafts must have a stop at the ends to prevent the roller from rolling off. I drilled a tight fitting hole in a flat strip of styrene and glued the shaft in place, then trimmed it off the styrene strip.


The "stop" had to be smaller than the diameter of the roller, so some trimming was required. The three in the center here have the roller slid on.


Finally here are all the pieces required for the backside of the overhead door.


Now comes the tedious part, locating and bonding all of these parts on the door, without bonding the six "panels of the door together.

Right now I need to rest my eyes, maybe go look out of the window and focus on something far away!

Wayne

This is more interesting than i thought and i never knew you have so much parts to build and fix on, :shock:

I told you that you would think I had lost my mind!

Actually so far it seems to be going along quite nicely. I have only bonded one roller to it's shaft out of 24. I'd say that's not too bad!

Hey Phill! Take a look at the second photo here, it will tell you where most everything goes!

I decided to wrap the door around a one inch diameter dowel rod to help keep the panel joints opened up so the solvent wouldn't run between them and bond them together. So far it seems to be doing the job quite nicely.




One thing I have learned with these very small pieces, when the solvent is applied, I apply it to one surface only, rubbing it in to the point where you can actually see a depression in the styrene where the bond will take place, then place the two pieces together. This method prevents the capillary action because there is really no liquid left to run around.

Now after looking at these pictures in the preview mode, don't anyone say, "It looks like your building a Gatling Gun" :mutley

Wayne

OK, here are the final pictures of the back side of the overhead garage door. At this point I think I will have problems with the hinges staying tight enough to close the gaps between the door panels. Only time will tell. The first photo shows all of the parts bonded in place on the door, while still on the dowel rod.
In the second photo you can see where there are gaps between the panels. that is because I did not drill or make every bracket exactly the same. It is very hard to do considering that each bracket is small than a bee bee.





Maybe I can find a way to compress them down when the door goes down? OR---Maybe I'll just glue them all together! :brickwall:brickwall:brickwall

Gatling gun, roller door - what does it matter - it's still far too small for me !!!

Are those hinges fixed to both panels Wayne ?  If you look at a roller door in real life, some of them sort of concertina into themselves when they close (once the bottom panel has hit the floor).  Will yours do the same or are those gaps held open by the hinges ?  Maybe, even if there is some "flex" in it, there won't be enough weight to close the gaps when the door is down. :roll::roll:

Gaps or no gaps it's a brilliant build.

I expected nothing less from you Wayne :shock:

Every 20mins refocus on something 20m away for a minimum of 2mins.

... and the little rollers actually roll do they!!!!!

Did you give your nurse a day off , she obviously wasn't around when you needed her. :mutley
