  1. A friend sent me a link this evening to this post on the Westlake Publishing Modelers' Forum. The link has a nice discussion about the restoration of a preac table saw. I like the discussion about electolysis as I have some blacking that I was not able to remove when I worked on one Saturday afternoon and of course it has been waxed! I did not try lapping the surface though, so more to learn. My preac must be different model as my switch in not "inline" of the power cord. http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?PHPSESSID=3643rk0k2j9t1sfne5u3mfhta5&topic=2977.0 I was won

  2. Thank you for the tip. That is a very pretty caliper, elusive but pretty. I had to google search it to find it at Lee Valley as I could not get any search result on the US website, initially. There are so many wonderful tools to buy at Lee Valley! I will try the flashlight first; if you here someone screaming over the weekend, it's me, and I blew out the wall. But days later.... I'm pleased with the rim. Rosewood is sooooo hard to hollow.

  5. This is a copy I've made in oil of Rembrandts "The Mill" - about 49mm x 60mm. Which I think is roughly 1/17th of the original.

  6. I'm posting a smaller painting I've made recently. Admittedly this painting is less a fine miniature than a novelty painting

  7. Here is my smallest to date. I used a a cat whisker to paint the rigging. I had read that this was done at one time. I had a hard time holding the cat down while moving his head back and forth to paint but eventually got it done. That was just a little joke. No cat was harmed.

  8. Painting I've made recently. I apologize to the original artist, I copied it from a google image and I can't find it now to give proper credit.

  9. I have been having fun working on miniature oil paintings for The Chicago International. I thought I'd post some here in the painting thread. I make my own frames, and still have to do that, but I think it is interesting to post them as yet uncut or cropped. They are not grainy, but this forum software/website blows things up to the point of distortion in my opinion. All are in the 2" range. This little girl is my favorite. Wire hair Fox Terrier after Arthur Wardle. This horse is from the first batch and so it is already cropped. In fact he is framed now too.

  10. Hello, I'm a new member and would like to show you all one of my paintings. This is a reproduction of Albert Beirstadt's "Cathedral Rocks, Yosemite Valley, California". The inside frame dimensions are roughly 2.25 x 3.25 inches. The frame is by John Hodgson. Thanks for looking.
