When I was making sawhorses an old guy told me how to get them flat so they don't rock. You could use the same principle here. Place the whole thing on a flat surface about the size of the "footprint" of the object, then use a slightly thicker piece of wood and scribe or draw a line on each leg while the model is steady . Cut to these lines and that should make all legs evenly sit . Does that make sense to you? I will sketch it and scan (as I am away at sea and don't have access to camera/tools at the mo)
Cool setup, I have a similar setup tho with a mains pump, also in NZ we have the freedom to use our roof water as and when we want (I have 2 x 50,000 liyre tanks for dtinking/wash water as we are not on the mains) So much for the land of the free! ;-) (BTW I'm Royal NZ Navy shippers - regards to RCN (we send some of our lads to you for training))
Congratulations on the retirement, I am coming up to 40 years a sailor next year 4 in the merch ,25 in RN , 10 in RNZN. Hope to retire soon
Paying for stuff is so last century!! Good luck with your search
Once cleaned season it with oil and it'll be great
BBQ Refurbish Before and AfterView Instructable »
Good idea, I have several "dead" drills and this would be perfect for working in the paddocks/driveway rather than running 1/4 mile of extension leads (like I sometimes do!!!) The car even has 4 power points (front and rear cigarette and 2 aux in boot)
Thanks, harks back to the 1994 dispute with the wrestlers using WWF outside of the US (now WWE) and WWF (World Wildlife Fund) now the World Wide Fund For Nature
Sounds like a good setup
I would imagine that a good plumbing shop would have them. Places like Bunnings and mitre 10 tend to only stock whole units.

I found that the leg tab holes need a little adjustment so that it sits flat on all 4 feet, so cut them individually to suit (I drilled a hole and cut and filed them out) Basically do one pair and adjust as necc for the others
I really have no idea on lasers, all a bit "James Bond" for me but I would imagine it depends on the material thickness, you may have to adjust the slot sizes if you have thinner woodI would also advise that you don't cut the leg tab holes until you have had a dry fit to make sure it sits flat on all four feet See also my other one https://www.instructables.com/id/Winosaur-2-Winosaurus-Rex/
Oh and also good luck and post a pic so I can see
Great I'ble, Just a word of advice on fitting tight bearings (Step 6) If you put them in the freezer for an hour or two they will contract and fit more easily, then expand for a tight fit. Also rather than knock them in with a mallet, which you rightly say could break the print, try pressing them in using a G clamp or woodworkers clamp as the slower, more gentle easing of them into position is less likely to cause damage and also ensure that they will be located straight
Winosaur 2 - Winosaurus RexView Instructable »
Thank you, there may be a different one inbound in the next couple of days if I get time
I have started it this evening, hopefully first prototype should be done this weekend
The original was drilled into the brick, I have drilled into the mortar joint, As for height I have just put the hose away quickly, usually I roll it tighter so it will clear the ground. On the original bracket(first pic where the brick was drilled) which is a different location to the final pic I reused the holes rather than drilling more as they are solid engineering bricks

Or maybe an Applosaurus
I was thinking more a Cranberrysaurus Rex
Hadn't thought of that, I usually just disappear upstairs in my shed!
Maybe with all those gaps I should call it a "Holey Shurt" ;-)
My bad, have edited it - yes, nails, lots of them (8 kg +) TBH I was going to try thr power of positive thinking but shee are no respecters of that!
The Winosaur, or Dino Wino

Thank you, it appears to be working again now ( I logged in on a different device and than relogged on computer and it all workedRegardsSteve
Voted in all 3 comps for you, can't say I understand all of it, but voted anyway because it is awesome!
Yes it is crumbly and almost odorless, even when cooking in the microwave it smells a little but no worse than say a steak as it is cooked so quickly. The worst part is the washing up esp of the goop in the food processor as it is pretty sticky.
I know right!

In have edited however the trace amount of garlic will have no effect on a dog (1/4 teaspoon in 2LBS) it is mainly there for its aroma as the dogs love it Yuo are also only using 1 or 2 chunks so a quarter of an ounce of treat in total. This recipe was from a VET and we have used with our dogs for 20+ years with no ill effects.Anything in high concentrations can be dangerous, low concentrations not so much! (think Paracetomol - 2 are great, 10 can kill you) But thanks for your comment as I didn't specify the amount

Thanks, hope you find one
Thank you, have fun - it is quite relaxing destroying things before you repair them
Not sure how safe this is as lathe tools are usually made of carbide steel and files can be all sorts and are usually more rigid. There is a danger that this could shatter in use
Its not so much that it is more the forces on the tool in use. The metal in a file has less temper and thus give than that in a purpose manufactured turning tool. I'm sure it will work fine but just be careful
For a high polish use something like Brasso (or any proprietary metal polish) and cardboard - ideally corrugated box stuff. It is very slightly abrasive and gives a deep shine, without excessive wearing
Oh I don't get time to sit down, the mistress beats me when I stop.?

It's pretty controllable, my router has a "soft start" and I set and lock it to the depth of cut and then use it almost like a pencil to trace the image
