  • carousel horse 'hardware' sources

    ???
    hi, I'm not a woodcarver (but I do build fine wood furniture) -- just sending out a message in an electronic bottle, trying to find sources for poles and bases used to display full-size carousel horses. I've just acquired a Luis Ortega horse, partially clad in tooled copper -- very unusual -- but can't seem to find places that supply the gizmos to mount him on. Sources offering other-than-brass poles would be particularly welcome, although I'll be grateful for any leads.
    thanks!

      Ever thought about having a blacksmith make you some hardware? Yes, blacksmiths work in copper, brass, aluminum and other things besides steel. Go to www.anvilfire.com for a link to the Blacksmiths Webring. There is a growing number of Artist Blacksmiths who could probably do the job.

          New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

          It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

          Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

          I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
          on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
