WeekendMiniaturist Posted November 21, 2014 Share Posted November 21, 2014 Sorry for my late night confusion; the photo of the watering can had a cone shape sprinkler head so I couldn't figure out where the dome shape was used. Referencing post #54, (I think) tin was used to create your tubes. What is a recommended source for tin? I will attempt to download and print the beginning booklet, as I'm having difficulty reading it online. I've experienced that things I think will work, ie lacquer thinner from Lowe's isn't my best option in terms of quality outcomes in fine miniatures; it is better to purchase lacquer thinner from the woodworking store or to find it in an automotive paint store; so wondering if tin at the hardware store is / or is not the recommended source of supply for tin to make a tubes. I have also been frustrated with my draw plate. A miniature friend gave it to me from our club; but it doesn't work as easily as I imagined for dowel rods, and I've never tried using it for metals as it was probably intended. If only I had worked in a machine shop for the last 30 years, instead of sitting in front of a computer... at 2544 views this morning this seems like a very popular thread.
