    Being down is the low side of being up it shows the road ahead is a steep climb but at the top the view is always special. Then we just coast along till we hit the trough again. Sometimes when coasting we pick up speed and the steep climbs pass by like your on a plain.

    Off to a great start, Ray. The index wheel looks manufactured. Did you make your own cams/rosettes?

    great effort Ray.

    is this kind of thing difficult with the right equipment ( by difficult i mean is it any harder than turning wood normally? )

    cheers

    Stirlo no once you have the equipment its easy working out what patterns is the hardest

    I did what anyone could do with a sliding compound vice set up on any lathe with an index plate

    its the other type of work using the rocker which becomes more involved and the full need for the Rose Engine
