The title of this blog might get the site banned!

The quality of my woodwork might also be criminal!

In my defence, however, I have seen some fairly crude loco stands. I had a bit of spare time this Sunday afternoon so thought I would put some offcuts to good use to make a stand for painting and working on the loco,

I have used MDF for the bases and an old bed slat and some off cuts for the vertical and the pivot and have used a coach bolt for the pivot point.

I now need to measure up the gap between the buffer stocks and put on some studs of some sort – probably some round headed screws.
