ROCK CRUSHER


The project for March was a model of a vintage Jaw Type Rock Crusher. It is a tough little bugger and will actually crush real rocks. However that takes more torque than the little electric motor provides, so I just use it to crush cough drops.

To prove it, these rocks were crushed during the testing stages.



Here it is munching some cough drops.

Your work is incredible! I was just searching around google for model engines and came across this page. Not only are the models absolutely gorgeous, but you seem to craft them at a prolific rate, too!

Are any of your models for sale? Or are plans available?

Being a gold miner I find this very cool. Is it for sale? If so my contact info can be found on my site as listed below. Thank you for keeping old fashioned craftsmanship alive!
