Here are acouple of photos of a music box I made several years ago, the box holds eight movementsimage.jpg each one is turned on or of by twisting the knobs, there is a thin rod that allows the movement to start or stops the movement by stopping the rotating gear.

Thread: copying from one mag to another
25/09/2012 19:58:11

Hi Guys

Richard is correct, nothing for loyalty, since cancelling I have an email offering incentives to take out a new subscription. I agree with Ivor the site has gone downhill, It has lost a certain sparkle or Sparky always showing us what he was doing, searching out answers to questions posed .

On another site I look at the editor has a blog as have the other writers for the magarzine, it would be nice if now and then someone from the mag wrote a post if only to put forward their veiw on any subject being discussed.

I have just cancelled my subscription to Good Woodworking,I found I was not looking at the last issue before the new one arrived,

I tried to recall any project I had made from the articles in the mag? I can't, I may of course have used some information gleaned from its pages.

As for repeating articles they must be pushed to get out 13 mags a year, and it must be a job not to repeat over the years.,

I still look at this site regularly but I don't sign in. George

It's some since this was shown on the site, I have not seen any more about how the set up was achieved I may have missed any more about it . It looks so perfect I wonder if it is turned .

Where has Dennis Wake been I have not seen any of his work on the site since?

Dennis What a wonderful piece of segment work, it must be one of the best i have seen, I agree with all the comments, and like Richard would like to se a "How To"


Thread: HMSTrincomalee

We have followed with interest your work for the The Trincomalee, without knowing anything about the boat, how old it was and it's naval history.

It was interesting to find she is the oldest floating ship in the UK being built in Bombay from teak, launched in 1817 at a cost of £23000.

if any of you are interested take a look on the web site and you will find the full story.,if like me you had not heard about the boat you will find it very informative,

Carry on the good work Dennis,

Hi all
Has any one tried to derust using mollases, I saw an article on derusting using malasses( forget comming to a sticky end Ron) I am going to give it a try, I don't think it is a very quick process, but it's cheap.
I also saw a method using a galvanised bucket and a battery charger, any one tried it, any information greatfully received.

Hi Steve
It sounds like you have play in the headstock bearing, as it only occurs when pushing towards the head stock and not in the spindle mode,you say it happens with the face plate and with the chuck so it can't be the spigot mounting.
Years ago I had that trouble with a cheap aly face plate that flexed under load, does it happen if you are scraping and not rubbing the bevel,

I am sure you can be trusted with credit, and know when the "TIME" comes you will "HAND" over the correct " NUMERALS"" you will "FACE" up to your commitment and not try to "M" BEZEL" any money from the supplier, this way you will "CLOCK" up a good credit rating for future. any body else wants to "CHIME" in be my guest.

Thread: HMS Trincomalee
10/01/2012 20:19:45
Hve you thought of cutting some of it up to make pens , it would raise more money and make the wood go further, a nicely presented pen in a cse around £29-£30 each at least.
P/S Like what you have turned so far.

Thread: My new shop

It's good to see you have plenty of work lined up for the new year, I was always told if you want a job doing take it to a busy workshop.
Or have you built a centre for American sports?is it the club headquarters?as Ron asked are you not telling us all?

Isn't it Ironmongery Direct that have just sold out to Travis& Perkins/Wickes group. Screwfix are part of the B&Q group, I don't know if it will make any difference to their service.

Good luck in your new workshop for the new year, it looks like you are well on the way with the relocation.
Thread: HMS Trincomalee
01/01/2012 12:02:07
Good effort Dennis
I hope you raise a lot of money , charge a good price for the treen you turn, it has the history of HMS Trimcomalee in the wood and is one off and irreplaceable.
I raised a lot of money for a restoration of our local water mill using timber rescued after the fire and new wood used to rebuild the mill, the story of the rebuild can be seen on the Stotfold Mill web site.
Good luck George
