Toymaking Workshop - Saturday Nov 14, 2009

A group of 175 car bodies were prepared for assembly on Thursday and Friday. They were sealed with a coat of sanding sealer and then sanded with 320 grit sandpaper in preparation for installing wheels and axles at the Saturday workshop on November 14th, 2009 at the RCWA Shop at 910 Wood in Rapid City, SD.

Thanks to several donations of materials and money, we have axles and wheels in place for installing on the completed car bodies. So, beginning at 9 am at the RCWA Shop, the toymakers began putting axles and wheels on the car bodies. By noon, the entire set was done, and ready for the final coat of laquer. As soon as it warms up in the backyard green house/spray booth, they will be sprayed with a coat of DEFT laquer spray. They they will be sorted and placed in boxes in preparation for our TOY DISTRIBUTION exercise on Dec 5, 2009.

Harley, Willis, Kathie, Ron and Gary pulled wheel and axle install duty today.

Here, Grant is drilling holes in 1" wooden balls. So next Saturday, we will be assembling Basketball games...
