Non Anglican, 19th Century Preacher Neckwear

Started this discussion. Last reply by CoastConFan May 16, 2013. 11 Replies

Meeting Other Makers

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bryan Paul Sullo May 15, 2013. 4 Replies

I have the design for the fingers worked out, and I've got one put together, which seems to be working. I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out what to attach all the fingers to, and I finally came up with the idea for using a PVC structure for the hand/palm.This structure doesn't need to move or…See More

Chief William Brown replied to Bryan Paul Sullo's discussion Working with Sheet Brass
"Bryan, you did not mention if the edges are straight, or irregular. I suggest using a metal shear for straight lines. If the work is curved, you can buy Wiss brand curved "aviation" shears. They come in left hand and right hand curve. Wiss…"

Mark Eliot Schwabe replied to Bryan Paul Sullo's discussion Working with Sheet Brass
