    How can I "destatic" the grass and tools?

    I built a static grass applicator and it all works fine, except for one thing............How do I get this grass not to stick to "everything" ? This stuff goes everywhere and is hard to clean up due to the fact it wants to continue to stick even after the power is turned off. I know women have...

    Train room electronics question

    Yes I did, I also tried DigiKey, All elect. and a few others. The one bulb is what they call a "fuse bulb" the other bulb looks more like a large grain of wheat bulb. I thought about just putting LED's in but I don't think they work on AC ? Also regular size grain of wheat bulbs are to small and...

Now the kids are grown and I have time to resume the layout I started way back when, so I am looking at...
