On The Cutting Table: Something

Posted by Beano Boy on 19 Dec 2015, 14:01

It is true i could afford to buy one,but where is the fun in that.
One could be knocked up using wood.

So here`s a tool well worth the making.
However i wonder if there are those that could figure out what a scratch build something this is.
This is something I need or there would be no point in making it.


Everything on the table is needed,and it has been designed for my needs. So it may not suit others. However like the last drop of water that finally overturns the bucket ,this too will certainly turn.

(1)

Image

Great stuff paper card so strong

I need a few of these ,this shape.
(2)

Image

And i need others a bit smaller.

( 3 )

Image

The large Size. I need two of these. Square ones would work too. Or even oblong ones.

(4)

Image

A Smaller Size, I need two of these. Square ones would work too. Or even oblong ones.

( 5 )

Image

There are 16 pieces of split up the middle card stripes.
A Something made from the smaller pieces is checked for square , and so one part is finished.


A clue is, i need it for a Sci Fi Project,and i think it will need spraying.

( 6 )

Image

This might well help the Something to Work.

:read: " Well it`s certainly got my head a spinning just thinking about what sort of something it might turn out to be." Said Book Worm with his eyes out of true.


(7 )

Image

That`s fixed in place fine.

:cowboy: " I can`t think what that stick is for." Remarked Sid the Rodeo Star.

:joker: " I bet there will be some wings added soon." Joked the fun faced Oracle.

( 8 )

Image

Magic, that went in place easy, but will it be strong enough?

:shock: :read: :cowboy: " BB,Don`t do it." They all said in a most alarming way.

( 9 )

Image

Four heavy book`s from my library piled on the top of what is the bottom.Yes great stuff is paper card. The glue is still wet,and it is so strong. I reckon when it`s finished it will take any amount of my heavy books heaped onto it. Buy a flimsy plastic one? Oh No.

:joker: "I bet floats will be added." The Oracle Remarked. :-D " He`s just a crazy red herring Joker." :cowboy: "Yah, Who`s ever heard of a tool with floats?" Asked Sid.

( 10 )

Image

Now it is a good solid fan shape.

:shock: " I`m thinking this is a water wheel. "____ :-D "I believe BB,is having a laugh."____ :drool: "You mean that Something is in fact a Nothing?"____" :read: ___ :drool: "YIP!"___" Well according to this book its a water wheel."

( 11 )

Image

To finish up this simple project in applied mathematics two 34 X 24 inch sheet of paper card,and another piece with slots cut into it. These three pieces make the bottom , curved sides and supporting bracket that house the something in place. A Something that because the fin like design incoporated is so simple at the touch of a finger,it helps turn it like a windmill in a breeze. I did rub candel wax on the pivate.

( 12 )

I guess It always pays to listen to an Oracle. :joker: "See i said Wings and Floats!"

Image

A brand new spanking tool and spraying booth. It took 5 hours to make mainly due to waiting for the glue to dry. I dismantled my photo shoot table recently,because i am replacing the background sheets with new ones. So i used the old sheets of paper card to do this project.

Image

A LAZY SUSAN , Mrs B,works far to hard to name it that. So this is my LAZY PAUL. By the way the spindle goes through that old box of mine,and all that was needed was a little hole.

:read: :cowboy: :shock: :drool: "Well i never ." they all said.

Image

Well I hope,
you have enjoyed a Something Upon The Cutting Table,from an Old Timer. :-D BB

This is designed to spin on a pivot. That`s the whole point in making it,and the Spaying Booth. No need for a motor that`s share and utter nonsense. save your money and make one.

My design feature makes it possible for one finger to move it . It Spins like a well oiled Spinning Top especially after i rubbed Candlel Wax on to the Spindel Pivot.

I Buy Bulk on E Bay or Amazon Dalibor.
My History Sales on Line only go back to 2013,so i have no address.
Any Big Arts & Craft Store Should Have It in Stock.
It Is Paper Picture Mounting Card 34 X 24 inches . BB

Go to a picture framer.

These guys use quality card as mounting boards for their framing.

They cut out the centre of a sheet in order to fit in whatever they're framing (photo, painting, certificate etc).

This square becomes waste. I found if you ask nicely, they'll give you lots for free (only once have I been asked to pay a nominal amount).

All the cardboard you'd ever need.

The stuff I`m using will melt plastic that`s why i made the thing in paper card. Experimentation using wood dyes and acrylic paint. To melt in special effects rather tan paint it. You see there are those who do ,and those who do nothing. I know which one i am.BB

Some more display stands; some rotating some not.

I like the one with lights in the base.

I think you could do something with that:

Have you just thrown your toys out of the pram?

I find most of your posts very informative, and quite useful.

I was looking forward to this thread.

Shame.

So why not continue it?

Looking at various dioramatists (I'm talking about you, Santi) I've started thinking of displaying a *bit* of my stuff. So display stands were in my mind.

Another area is the carved wooden pot stands you get for Chinese vases. These can be found in dollar shops & would make great display stands. Non-rotating of course.

The cheap prices of stuff from Asia REALLY should be looked at as there are loads of options & it is just an internet purchase away.

Hi guys,on a lighter note. The Links to E Bay shown here show the products which are all fine ,and good for simple jobs,but upon looking into it further they do not post to the United Kingdom. Well we are talking post from OZ! I dare say popping into your local Cake Shop might pay off,by gaining more info on the subject of obtaining one. Of course you can always make a cheeky offer to buy the biggest cake they have if they throw one of those things in for free. If you don`t ask you don`t receive. If they do, save me a big slice. BB

I must Apologies,for not being able to finish this post. I made the MK1 Lazy Paul,a few days ago. I have managed to post these pictures in quite an indirect way.I have managed to post indirectly from my Blog. I moved pictures from File,______to Picture Gallery for editing._______ Then placed pictures on my Blog,_____ Then onto tinypics,and_____________________Then here onto the Forum. It took a while but,Phewwww! I made it. :read: " You did it BB." ______________ :cowboy: " Yah! Now you`ll sleep sound."


Image

This project is not a Lazy Susan whereby you present work for show. This is a heavy duty designed for my needs Turntable for the simple Spraying Booth I made. I was hoping to have lots of fun on this topic,but the end result was not to be the case. The Plane is a sacrificial Lamb so to speak,because i have never attempted the likes of what i intend to do. So this is going to be very interesting and cutting edge for me me.

Image

This is of course upside down and i designed it to be moved simply by a mere finger or if stick with paint a sort wooden dowel. I am currently working on a Mk 2,version that will highly improve this rather large tools performance.

Image

It will be a few days before i can spray this part built model.

Image

I certainly did need a good prefabricated Spray Booth.So that`s why i designed it. i`ve got stash a plenty and by the hundreds to paint with undercoat.

Image

So this is going to be a very useful tool indeed. I`ll post the result of what is on my painting table as soon as possible. One thing i do know this thing certainly spins. :-D BB

A new year and my first little scratch build. I have designed chimneys that have been rendered up.

Image

Image

The shapes were cut out,and glued onto scrap paper card. Then left for five minutes then a heavy book was placed upon them. This waiting avoids pieces skidding around. Once dry they were cut out around the edges and then stuck onto card again. Four parts in total make this section up.

:read: "Sorry BB, pressed submit by mistake,"
i believe the pictures are a good guide.It is only a matter of assembling the parts.
One thing i will add now ,is once the four pieces that make the main chimneys up have been finally cut out the facing paper is peeled off to give that rendered look. Where the lines are down the sides,is no great problem,because each side must be stuck onto facing paper that has been peeled off. Of course the flat side is the sticking point,and when glue is dry the paper is trimmed around the edges leaving a good rendered finish all around.

Image

Here are the two painted with S Matt Paint this makes then very hard and the next stage is painting the chimney pots and then dry brushing overall for effect. If a rougher job of render is needed,simply stipple a base colour of emulsion onto the sides, then dry brush. I will be placing many a project here, On The Cutting Table :-D BB
