I have been talking to some of you at the HF about my "Hand shaping and Fabrication of artistic metalwork (with a Hammer)".
I am hoping to start the class off with a "Build your own English wheel" project. I am locating parts and assembly items and will have prices for parts packages and a cut list for 3 types of frame and footing styles.
How many people would be interested in Having their own English wheel"? With the caveat that: the Board may be paying for parts for a Group owned English wheel. It would become property of the HF and would (I assume) be available for anyone to use there.

I am hoping to have the first class the first Fri evening in February.

feel free to contact me with any questions or thoughts.


In service to the Craft

Justin

I am very interested in this class/project. But the next 2 month or so is simply packed for me.

:roll: Still searching for a supplier for the flat faced and radius faced bearings to get a price quote. Any help locating or dealing with a vendor will speed up this happening. :roll:

Come to learn how.. buy a parts kit and come to build yours along with me. Just show up cause English wheels are cool and you want to learn about them..... :roll: :roll: As soon as I can make it happen :roll: :roll:

Now I have not looked but both Ambel Hardware and Tull Berring is on Washington Ave just north of Broadway. Tull is a manufacturing company, but I see a will call door, so they must sell locally and in smaller quantity.

But that is just a suggestion.
