  • Has anyone done one of these?

    What i am looking for is doing a whirlygig. Just a simple one because it would be my first one.
    What would you suggest to do?

    I'd just order a pattern and a kit from somplace like wildwood or cherry tree. Looks to me like they are a snap to build, it's the painting that takes some skill.

      I've always thought they were neat but have been a little apprehensive to put one in the yard for fear the high winds we get in the hollow would have it off the stand and running across the yard. Just did a quick look for any patterns and came up with this site:

      These are pretty basic but mightbe worth a try. They're FREE...

                After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
