  • A lit'l help from my friends...

    PLEASE! I am working on a box design for my SO's birthday and all is coming along nicely until I got to the artwork portion. I want to include artwork of our dog, D.O.Gee, (sssshhhh, he doesn't know he is a dog - lol!) Anyway, I have never created a fret pattern before and really struggling trying to get this into a usable pattern. I converted the color photo to grayscale, and cropped out all the background...but still cannot get the results I want....arggghh. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! I am not looking for a very complicated pattern, as it will be reduced down to fit into roughly 4" oval shaped plaque.

    Thanx again in advanced!!!

          I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

          Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

          I did a...

          Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.

          Partly because I have trouble seeing small letters with my one remaining eye and also because my existing wireless keyboard gave up the ghost a couple of days back I went out this morning and bought a new wired keyboard from our local Oice Depot.

          I chose one with really big blue illuminated...
