  • Wacky Beaver Bird House

    I Have almost completed the wacky beaver bird house, Paul Meisel, Spring issue.

    Unfortunately like many US projects I am unable to obtain the plastic eyes needed
    # 3437 and the flush mount hanger #1262. I have tried ordering from Pauls website but it appears that shipping applys to only the US and Canada. I have also tried the web in the UK but eyes only seem to come in bulk orders, no luck either with the hanger. Does anyone hailing from the UK know of anywhere I can get these items. Maybe I will have to devise some sort of flush hanger and make the eyes from wood

    Harry can you post a pic? If it's what I'm thinking I personally prefer making the eyes.
    I may be able to help with the hanger if I could see what you need.

            Harry I think I would make a keyhole mount...

            Steve shows a vertical mount you can also do a horizontal mount...side to side across the top of your project. Your choice if you make and entry and an exit plunge.

              Harry, Mike had a good idea or maybe a back plate a little larger than the piece and that would give you room for mounting screws.
              I found a supplier in UK that can probably help with the eyes

                Thanks Mike looks like a neat tool, Could I not get the same effect marking out a keyhole and
                cutting out with the scroll saw.

                I will try that UK site Rob thanks for taking the trouble to look.

                  I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                  I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                  Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                  One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                  I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                  Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                  If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
