More bender stuff


I spent some of my time in Tucson (and yes, I'm back now) making some more bending forms with the help of my pal Erik (who has the super-dope woodshop). I had to do the last bit (cutting the proper size/radius grooves) on the mill, though, and that's one of the things I managed to get done today.

Getting back into the swing of things over the next few days. I'm mostly caught up on email and should be shipping out a whole load of crap tomorrow or Monday as well. Feel free to email or call if you need to talk to me.

Sheesh! One day back from vacation and I'm getting hassled...

Seriously, I'm working. A lot. It will get done.

I hope you didn't work too hard today and got out to ride. It was fantabulous.

Actually, Eszter, I have food poisoning right now...guh.

Enjoy WP this weekend - I sent a few brews with RC (Chris gets first dibs).

Mounting the wood mandral on the rotary table like that is super clever. Nice mandrals!

Professa', those curves look much cleaner. What is that, solid Pawlah'?

Schweidy - if you mean poplar, then yes, it's poplar.

Erik runs the architecture dept. machine and wood shop at U of A, so he helped me take a rough block, plane it down to a nice even rectangle, and use the bandsaw to cut those pretty curves. Then I just hit it with the ball-end mills on the rotary table here at home.
