I've acquired a large quantity of acrylic sheet. I'm looking for plans for a 2 or 3 bay steel hopper. I would also like any contact info or recommendations for someone doing laser cutting.

Thanks

Andre,

From your previous posts about the Aristo Mike, I'm guessing you are looking for a std gauge hopper? I may have a plan - will check when I get home.

Doug Bronson, at Bronson-Tate did a kits for our Masterclass and will do custom work. I imagine he can do acrylic as well as wood and sytrene.

I've located a local sign shop that has a CNC router they use to cut acrylic. If I can locate plans in the proper format they will cut them for me. drawings might work for them. I'll find out tomorrow

I know this is an old thread - did this ever go anywhere?
Brian,

You're not kidding about this being old. . .

I think Andre made some caboose bodies from the acrylic sheet, but never got around to hoppers. Perhaps because 2 and 3 bay hoppers are now widely available in 1/20th (Bachmann, Accucraft,) 1/22nd (Bachmann) and 1/29th (Aristocraft, USATrains) from those manufacturers.
