    Default Newbie from Lismore

    G'Day All,
    Please allow me to introduce myself.
    I'm Don & live in Lismore NSW. I have very recently found this forum & looking forward to participating on it.
    I am a retired fitter & turner & I am currently working on a 1.5" scale Aveling road roller that is I.C. engine powered. More on this when I start a thread on the roller's build.
    Thanks for accepting me into this forum.
    Regards,
    Don.

    Welcome Don.

    I am looking forward to seeing the build. I have to make a road roller myself sometime. I need to get my drive built up a bit as well as some of the tracks, gateways etc around the place. The drive leading up to my carport has been under about 100mm of water for a distance of about 10m most of winter. This is a circular drive. The main drive is about 150m long.

    My build will be along the lines of a frame to mount a 1000 litre container on, with a row of 4WD wheels underneath. I need to work out how many wheels to use.

    Hi.
    If you get up to Brisbane you should come out to Petrie Town and have a look at our Aveling.
