Re: 1940s Groechen IMP trade simulator

No resistance from the compressed air in the piston. No seal, no compression, no resistance.

My wife wasn't resistant to my purchase either, but that was just because she didn't see it until it was already operational again :HaHa:

Finally found a good source of chain

For anyone that is restoring a digger, you know how hard it is to locate chain that matches what is originally in the machine. Or I'm just really horrible at trying to the correct chain.

Re: Gold Mine - Winter project

Great job. Looks a good end result of the effort that you put into it. Those side slots look tough to hit. Do you win more if you hit them?
