Thread: Chrome Top Wave Pen Kit
10/12/2011 13:08:12
Many Thanks for all the replies, I think we have it sussed now as the picture will hopefully show.

I have left it this way round because rotating seems to make them look stubby. The one in the middle is the Chrome Top Pen. The one on top is the Americana 10ct from Axminster and the one on the bottom is just a simple slimline. Dennis, I realy like the micromesh on this stuff I went down to 12,000 grade and finished off with T-Cut. The instruction sheet for the Chrome Top says to push the mechanism in from the top thick end first but I think a better method is to insert it from the bottom and push it up till it touches the clip but a nice kit.
Thanks again Dennis.

Hi Ron - I will echo Derek, very nice indeed. Taylor made for the job and nice proportions. Julian

Hi Paul, Yes, Pound Shops are a good place to start, I used to get mine from the local camping shop but both of these are now gone. Julian

This does look like a good show but a little to far for me, I will wait until the Yandles show in the spring. Pitty

My favourite at the moment is from Wye Valley Brewers although I am not sure if it's the beer that's so good or the adventures of Dorothy Goodbody (you have to be a CAMERA member to appreciate this one)

Dennis -- You are a star, that's just what I was looking for. I have resized it and printed it out for reference. I am trying out turning acrylics for the first time and this was one of my first projects with it so will post a photo when complete. Thanks again Dennis - Julian

Hi George/ Ron -- Likewise with the latest Goodwood, maybe as this one was at the printers when Danny put the post out he meant the January one.

Hi Alan -- Pay a visit to the washing machine repair shop, you may have to file down a set to fit and put a different cap on the spring but this is an easy job to do if you have a soldering iron. Don't forget to put the correct curve on the end to fit the commutator

Hi Bill -- I haven't tried Corian but I know what you mean when using the acrylics for bushings. I have had to make a couple lately and the finish is not that good. - Julian
Thread: Setting a planer???
26/11/2011 12:05:58
Hi Drew, As has been previously said you need to ensure that when the planer is set to zero both the infeed and outfeed table are perfectly aligned. Do this with a straight edge, they also need to be perfectly flat (no warping). If there is a slight difference then you will need to pad out the misaligned unit. Once this has been done make sure that the blades are set level with the outfeed table. When you are planning don't put too much pressure on the infeed table, keep the pressure on the out feed table while pushing the work through from the infeed end. Hope this helps -- Julian

Funny enough there is a picture of similar cracker by George King in the Revolutions newsletter for December page 28. looks like a good project. Julian

Hi Danny, welcome to the site. It's good to have a mod on board again and yes there have been many postings requesting sparky's guides being mended as they are rather good. I too would like to know about woodworking live 2012 as it was so good last year I have already made plans to drive the 300 miles or so to visit again (that's a round trip)
Best Regards --- Julian

Thread: Frustration!
10/11/2011 13:29:35
Hi Richard this can be quite maddening when it happens although saying that in there defence I ordered a pile of smaller items back in the summer again to make up the value for free postage and it turned out that some were out of stock. They at least had the courtecy to ring me and let me know that the items were out of stock and delay the delivery by a few days till it was all together. Julian

Hi Sam, I had one of these also. As council worker I don't think I could live on that either.
