    Universal Router sub-base (Blank / Preform) group buy.

    THE PREMISE I want to buy a disc of aluminium to make a router sub-base but the minimum order is too much for me so I am looking for others to spread the cost. THE BACK STORY (NOT IMPORTANT) I have recently bought the UJK router lift and am much in love with it however …... My trend T9Es...

    NVR switch and remote control

    The back of the NVR generally has 4 contacts, 2 positive and 2 negative - if you can identify them (it usually says it on the NVR) then you can link them through and put your NVR / remote somewhere else. small contact is the auxilliary (for an indicator) Safety issue is that you might be able...

    Scroll work on a bangle

    Thank-you; I did fear that that might be the case - as I could not see anyone else having done similar-it did seem likely. I am not completely put off though - there must be a cunning solution - I just need to find it. When I did the hand work, I did it atop a partially open vise so I can...

    Scroll work on a bangle

    I have a design idea which i would like some assistance with if you fine peoples would be kind enough. I want to take a plain-ish turned wooden bangle and then scroll-saw out some shapes from it. I have a much-beloved Axi SFS scroll saw which will scroll happily through a churchill tank but is...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    I think a lie down in a darkened room, and getting on with all the other chores I've been ignoring. Thanks for the support- it's much appreciated. Woodgears.ca did faceted balls at some point so I think I'll give those a miss. An extension on the boys' play area is on the cards I think...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    I did myself down to other day – I cut a piece of stud as well as drilling a couple of holes – 25% increase in productivity – how’s that? And here we go, big day today – I am breaking out the mitre bond again! – lots of typing but a couple of days over the weekend with assistance in and from...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    I am so down with the Kids! – Last night I sorted out the rest of the small pieces for the project including drilling the sphere which took forever! 1 – centralise the table on the drill press (I’m not actually drilling through it!) 2- cut clearance hole in support piece (using a plunging...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    I did wonder about this when I made my test piece. Being a CA glue I am hoping it will be alright. Everything is sort of braced from at least 2 directions so barring dropping it, I am hoping this will not be a factor. Time I guess will tell where we will fall on the art-firewood spectrum.

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    So; last night was a bit of a hiding inaccuracy kind of job. I spent a fair while sorting out the router table whereupon it gave out its magic smoke and that was the end of that. Pressed into service, the big hand router (which I thankfully have guide bars for) which was then clamped to the...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    Today I move to lots of little bits of wood rather than a few big bits – very exciting – but lots of checking to do before that point. My chop saw is not the very finest so I will have to check over everything first. At least with a lazer on this one, I can make a cut and set the laser, turn...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    This next phase was in equal measure pleasing in its rhythm and annoying in that when I had finished, it looked like I had done nothing. A chamfer round the front of each hole-remembering which side was the front as well! Rebates on the back of each hole (remembering to hide the tear out from...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    Having achieved for myself something of a reputation, a friend partook of a little skip diving for me (with the owner’s permission!) a while back and brought me an old table top which I think is mahogany. Onward we go then and let's attack the old table, cut into strips on the band saw and put...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    Well, the easter break gave me a chance to zoom on with the project and parts actually arrived on time for once. (installment 1 of BH weekend workings) Plastics Online (to whom I am unconnected other than as a customer) can supply pre-cut discs for 50p each, but seeing as I know a chap what has...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    Just to clarify, this is to be for a baby a bit like a mobile (but I did one of those for her big sister!) Naturally it shall be well-enough constructed to spin in gyroscopic balance. I am going to make the panels thinner so it looks a little less like a wrecking ball and there are going to be...

    GeoBall – An exercise in (faking) accuracy

    (My apologies - moved into projects from the wrong section previously) Having recently been interested in geodesic shapes, I thought I would try something a bit different (to my normal stuff) for the impending arrival of my best man’s second daughter. For once I think this might actually be...
