Today our local railroad (Caltrain) is replacing a short bridge over a street in San Mateo.
In addition to these pictures, I shot a bit of video showing the installation of the north abutment. The entire project started last night at 10 PM and must be done before the first train tomorrow morning (5 AM, I think).

Today I finished a holder for a 0.2 mm (about 8/1000") drill bit. I need the ability to drill such small holes in order to make gas burner for model steam engines. When the gas goes through the small hole, it atomizes into droplets that mix with air and burn very well.

+John Bump I spin my lathe as fast as it will go and push the bit with my finger using a linear slide.

A friend asked me to convert a novelty pencil sharpener shaped like an old lantern into a functional lantern. He plans to use it with his 1:5 scale model trains.
There's just enough space in the base for a small lipo battery, its charging circuit and a switch.

The lantern is done: It took a lot more work than I expected, but the result is worth it!

I'm converting a friend's model steam locomotive from burning alcohol to butane gas. These parts are for the valve that will regulate the gas output from the tank and a bushing (top on picture) for the filler valve.

It's a classic ice cream shop: what's not to like?

Not as good as it used to be. Maybe it feels that way because other shopping options are now available, especially online.

Great produces. Love the Deli and cold / hot buffet. Some employees have a bit of an attitude, hence the lack of a fifth star.

Great location, love the patio. Food is OK, service is uneven.
