New Project....Barber-Greene Paver

Recommended Posts

The changes you made certainly add a new level of realism and I'm sure a great deal of satisfaction!

Could you share a link to the chains 

Hahhaha see what I did there ?? 

Good one............................nice job "linking" to the thread!!!! LOL! They are by MicroMark. Find them here, and the sprockets are also available on that site. https://www.micromark.com/Miniature-Drive-Chain-Price-Per-Foot

Thank you! It also has me tearing my hair out trying to figure out how to pack five pounds of chain and sprockets into a three pound paver! Making all sorts of diagrams trying to figure where to route everything!

Thanks for the link :)those are exactly what I was planning to use on the conveyor chain in sander...and they note it's the same sold by Grant .

Awesome work on the paver

Made up the main transmission with the electric clutches and the crawler drive dropdown gearboxes and the drive sprockets for the countershaft drive.  Installed the main drive system. Installed the crawler drive frames as well as the crawler drive hub supports and the driver and driven sprockets. Still have to add a whole bunch of detail nuts and bolts. This is a pretty complex drive system. The engine drives a belt driving the transmission that is connected to the main gearbox, which is offset to one side, which powers a cross shaft. On the cross shaft there are two electric clutches that run the countershaft sprockets. Outboard of the clutches and sprockets are two gearboxes for the crawler drives which drive shafts that go through the main frame and are supported by outboard bearings that have a sprocket drive dropping down to the crawlers.  It’s finally taking shape!

Ditto that x 10 outstanding work 

I spy OD green parts..I fear some military tank got robbed  !  Funny cause I find all sorts of useful shapes in armor and AC kits perfect for sub assemblies

Got some time at the bench today so got a bunch done. I added the bolts to the crawler drive shaft extension supports, added the feed conveyor front shaft and sprockets as well as the driven end with sprockets. Added the augers and the support structures and sprockets and shafts as well.  All of the shafts, sprockets, crawlers, augers and conveyors will be operable with their own chain drives. A little bit of progress with lots of tiny parts and lots of work and engineering. Now have to add the countershaft that transfers the power from the main transmission to the conveyor and augers, as well as the support structure for the feed conveyors. Gotta say, I'm learning about how a paver works!!!

Added the feed conveyor hopper floor and conveyor chain supports.  Made up and installed the countershaft for the conveyor drive. (The transmission is supposed to be offset to one side.) Made and installed the two hydraulic motors for the auger drives.  Installed all sprockets and chains.  Still have to make up the drag chain cross bars and attach to the conveyor chains. So......the entire power train is made up and installed with the exception of the belt drive that powers the whole thing from the engine to the main transmission.   And.......everything works! Lots more to go!!!

Details , details and more details, it looks awesome Tom, the chains look also great and are a good fit related to the scale.

Keep going!😎

Brings back memories of working on Blaw-knox pavers.

Looking exceptional.

Assembled the main structure of the screed along with the heater box and the tamper and it’s eccentric drive assembly. Made up the leveling arms. The tamper shaft will be driven by a hydraulic motor. This is becoming a pretty sizable piece, being just over 10 feet wide in transport mode. Still have to attach the tamper to the eccentric connecting rods and install the camber adjustments to the screed. It seems the farther I get the more I realize it needs!

Finished installing the eccentric drive for the tamper along with the hydraulic motor snd shaft mounted gearbox.  Also made up the screed heater blower, burner and ductwork.  Also installed the crown control adjustment screws, leveling control screws, and started installation of the leveling arms.
