I have been looking for ideas of how to discreetly (hands-off) move wagons off a wagon turntable into a building, I think this is the solution. Like Charlie I think I might be 'pestering' you for more details.
Thanks for sharing

A thoroughly absorbing read, truly amazed at how it all fits together in such a small space.Charlie Stewart wrote:I've just consulted the "Button Expert" and her answer was a rather curt " what a silly question to ask...... of course the buttons are mined complete with their holes already in them... if they didn’t have holes they would simply be DISCS !!!!
Whist I hasten to query the " Button Expert's" wisdom on such a matter, but...
"Buttons with shanks have no holes in the button blank (the main part of the button) itself because they are not needed for sewing."
So it would in effect be feasible to mine buttons without holes, and they technically would still be buttons......
Look forward to seeing more on your project...
