  • looking for compound feather patterns

    Howdy All

    Finally sort of put the garage back together last week.
    Been trying to do a birthday present for the misses, changed the design about 20 times in the middle of it......but
    almost done ill post pictures SOON....!!!

    ....anyway

    Anyone know where i can find a compound feather pattern
    I found a couple of fretwork patterns, but i'd like to see what one would look line as a compound cut. Or i suppose i could try to carve one out.

    thanks...pete

    compound feather? That sounds simple. I would take the regular feather pattern, and put it on 1 1/2 inch thick wood, and mark on the sides of the wood the shape i want the feather, the curves can be freeforms, it would look nice. Then I would cut that line, before turning the block and cutting the other. I think it would look good. Sorry, thats all the help I can offer. Dale

          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.
          My dream was to buy a TIG so that...

          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...
