I MADE a DADO JIG
What i nice idea! Solar lamps are often ugly, I think, especially the cheap ones, but you made it look like super-cool-expensive designer stuff. Now I feel inspired to try to do something myself: I have lamps and cement, so I´m heading for the basement....
Really great work! Do you know where one can get instructions for building a centrifuge like the one you used? `Cos buying that is too costly, and it´s more fun to make it by myself. The ring itself is beautiful! //Lotta
Nice instructable! I would like to ad a tip that might be helpful when doing multiple solderings on one part: Get silver solder that silver smiths use, it comes in different "hardness", from a low melting point up to a high, and one uses the high one first and when you solder the next piece the first one doesn´t melt. Very neat. Most tecniques used when working on silver or gold can also be used on copper and brass. Don´t let nasty comments get to you, if your way works, then it´s fine!
Absolutely beautiful, and yet simple enough for non-pro´s, like myself. Love it!!!
You´ve come up with a simple & elegant solution. Makes me wanna do the same even though I don´t really need it.... but I´m sure I can apply your solution to something in the line of silver smithing. Really nice!
