Would love to see these, but it is not going well for me :-(. Downloaded multiple times and on different machines using different browsers and nothing for PDFs will open them, not even acrobat. Even booted wincrap to see if that would do it, nope :-(. Anyone else have this problem? Also the site intermittently fails to load at all: The connection was reset The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. Different browser: An error occurred while loading http://www.bubbasville.com/tutorials/Wave_Pen_Creation_and_Variations.pdf: Connection to host www.bubbasville.com (http://www.bubbasville.com) is broken. Thanks, Vikki.

Toni

Thanks, that was helpful and it inspired me to give the bushings a go :-).

Made a set of bushings for my home made mandrel for the PSI 10mm Traditional Kit. Very simple ones to be sure but it was fun. Put pix up I shot over my shoulder in the process.

Made them out of steel, wonder if that is necessary? Guess I'll get a chance to see once my starter kit arrives.

Having done some research at this point I am not sure the starter kit was the wisest move I made with all this, I suppose it is part of paying for an education, the chisels in the kit are not even listed on the site that I could find.

Also got an idea of what to do with the cue stick wood, it may not have any character, but that doesn't mean it has to stay that way :-).

Cut out a couple blanks and drilled them out on the lathe. A "W" drill bit seems to be about perfect since I don't have a 10mm bit (yet :-) ). Waiting for the Gorilla glue to set up so I can start turning them down.

First I'll probably have to square them up / trim them using an end mill on the micro-mill. Or wait until Friday when I get the starter kit and can turn a 10mm adapter for the mill it comes with. Patience? Heh :-).

Having fun!

Take care, V.
Testing inserting emoticons, dragging and dropping them doesn't work - or does it ?!??!

All I see are the links, how does one do this? If I type the text ones, they come out with an exta ")" not necessarily the one that I wanted, arghhhh...

Hi Vikki

And with the ones you are typing that come up with the ), are you using the ) when typing it, you don't need to for example type : U without the space for this :U, clear as mud or what

Homebrew AMD64/3800+ / 2G PC3200 / Abit UL8 MB / 320G SATA / DVD/RW (Liteon) / Nvidia 6600GT / Ubuntu Linux / m$xp for when I absolutely have to :).

Probably creeping up on a year old now more or less.

Clear as mud, yes :U in that the ": U" doesn't make any sense. We'll try clicking on them and see if that helps, seems to put it after the title, hummm. So much to learn :U.

It's a start, I am sure I'll get the hang of it in due_time();

Thanks & take care, Vikki.

Yes, Firefox under Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04).

That may well be it, using the other editors seemed to require a lot of html programming so I went to the quick / simple one. I get enough html programming at home :U :U :U.

Thanks & take care, Vikki.

Thanks! I guess I need to experiment with the other editors, I just hate to use everyone here as a guinea pigs <frowney_face>, LOL.
