I reorganized my art work pages. So now I have different categories and projects.
Here are some quick links to them. You can get there in the header drop down menu too.
Last fall I built a work bench for this garage. The garage is pretty big but I didn’t have the room for anything big. It’ll work.
Now I need to figure out some legs for the 2ft. x2ft., 1/4 inch thick steel plate I got. This will be my welding/brazing table.
Well I got an itch to work on this raccoon skull I’d found years ago at a job site. It needed some dental work, so I got that done for the most part. Not sure what will happen next…..
I bent up some music wire and mixed up some concrete. Tada…… a little torch holder. Now I just need to keep working with it. It’s a little intimidating learning on my own but I’ll get it. Right now I’m mainly playing with adjusting the flames correctly. It’s been pretty cold in my garage so I’m not progressing very quickly.
Hey….Any jewelers or gas welders out there I’d love to hear from you if your familiar with this torch!!! This is the Meco Midget Torch available on https://www.tinmantech.com/ A very versatile torch from everything I have read. Popular with aircraft builders and jewelry makers. Flame can go from real small (#00 tip for jewelry) to pretty big (#7). I unfortunately don’t know what these flame sizes actually are. I’ve mainly played with #0 tip. The cone on it is about a centimeter. The cone is the part of the flame you work with near the tip.

Link to the 10 Years Strong thread…
http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/general-crawlers/479863-10-years-strong.htmlGood link to what’s out there, some amazing trucks…….
10 years running strong. For those of you who are clueless it’s a forum about radio control vehicles, mostly crawlers and scalers. From very scale builds to the kits you buy ready to run. All the information, ideas and help you could ever imagine. I’d say anyone into rc should check it out. Anyone considering rc should check it out.
They have forum sections on:
general tech (everything from electronics to painting etc..)
scale rigs (my favorite)
competitions and events
venders (some wonderful small buisness’s and individuals whom make amazing things)
regional (for your area-clubs, meets, just find people)
So head over there! Browse around! If you like making stuff you’ll like this site.
I got greatly inspired by Marina Bychkova’s dolls. Truly amazing…..but I wanted to do ones in metal. It didn’t work out quite the way I envisioned. 1. I don’t have the tools(someday, hopefully soon). 2. The mechanics of it are complicated when you get into the weight of metals. But I have ideas! Again I just need better tools to work it all out.
So here’s my “prototype”, kind of creepy! I like it. More Pictures on the quick link below….
