    looking for sum astronomy wood working patterns,
    telescope, observatory,


  • #2
    a little off topic but here you go

    Here is a link to build a telescope, some home made tripods, an observatory
    and finally a source of optics

    The MakeZine is a great source for this and other projects.
    once "wood" has seen the reply I will move the thread to "Off topic"

      I attached a picture of my 10" Dobsonian that I designed and built a few years back. It collapses down into a box (the size of the base) as I wanted it to be able to fit into my 300ZX along with my camping gear. I would recommend the book Building a Dobsonian Telescope by Kriege and Berry. This is only sort of off-topic, as it still has to do with woodworking.

      Here's a couple of links to get you started:
      http://members.aol.com/sfsidewalk/dobplans.htm (great site with plans to build a scope)
      http://observatory.lenaghen.com/ (plans for building a $300 observatory)

        by handibunny
        It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

        I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

        This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

        What a morning. The therapists were quite pleased with what he could do. He took the wrap off today and he can walk with the walker with very little pain. It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...

        If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

        I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
