Re: Spatzier

Here I am again, It took me a lot of time to figure out what the speed of the wheel is, with the different pulleys on the motor and Spatzier, but I think I find it. I also build a watertowerbox to cachs the splashing water from the wheel. I get it out of the book from Merker and was thinking that it...

Re: Spatzier

Last week I recieved my spindels from Merker, and start to put the lathe on the table with the motor. spindles.jpg I made a quick set-up of it, and make it running so I can count the rpm of the different sizes of the trapezium pully and motor. Next week I am going to make the box behind the wheel to...

Re: Spatzier

Thanks Pat for responding. It is almost 2 months ago I begin with the Spatzier. I took a long time to figure out what wheels I can use on the smaller machine, and what different spindles I need. The spindles for this machine are mk2 so they can handle some bigger wheels, but not too big. So I can us...

Re: Spatzier

I cleaned the Spatzier in and out. All the boults are replaced for new ones. There was a lot of slurry in the reservoirs to remove. I think it is years ago the machine was open, to look at the oil! The spindle I polished by hand. I only don't know if the oil must be special? Or can I use synthetic m...

Re: Novice glass chipping (build chipping/drawing table)

Re: Novice glass chipping (build chipping/drawing table)

Next stage: gold leaf. After looking at the pannel for 20 min. ( I was nervous to start) I had no idee where to begin. You work from the bottom and go up, or from the top down? It is diffycult in one hand the tip with the goldleaf, and the other hand the brush with the gelatine water. But I started ...

Re: Novice glass chipping (build chipping/drawing table)

I put on the lights of my chippingbox and let it warm up the glass. In the meantime the gluepot warms up the glue. The mix of the glue i did now by weight, and not by volume. I put on the glue with a squese botlle. When I was ready with filling the patern, I shut of the lights in the shipbox, and wa...

Re: Novice glass chipping (build chipping/drawing table)

Thank you for your comments Pat. I also think that the temperature of the glue was not right. I was guessing about it. A few days ago i recieved my order from the US included a gluepot with termostat. So I picked a logo from my doughters waterpolo-club. After frosted the patern in my sandblastcabine...

Re: Novice glass chipping (build chipping/drawing table)

In one of my tests, I let the glass heat up in the box while i was making the glue above the candlelight. When the glue was ready (I think) I put it on the glass and leave it in the box. The next day not everything was come of. I think it was because after I put on the glue, I had to take it out of ...

Re: Novice glass chipping (build chipping/drawing table)

The first tests i made is on 3mm float-glass, and i taped it with sandblast-foil. Its only to seperate the lines. I used silicon-carbid 180, to 'frost" the glass. I blast it in my cabinet for getting grip for the glue. IMG_2798.JPG IMG_2797.JPG I was guessing about the temparature of the glue. IMG_2...

Re: Novice glass chipping (build chipping/drawing table)

To make some tests I used floatglass 3 mm and to mask the glass, sandblasting foil. The mask is not so important right now, its only for testing. The chipping glue i bought a few weeks ago, says not how much grade it is. I understand it must be 165 gr., only the sticker says "chipping glue". I know ...

Re: Novice glass chipping

After I drilled the 100mm holes in the lower-box, I made an slide to control the heated air from the central heating. During the test I see if it is useful or not. Sometimes here in Holland, whe hang a little porcelain pot filled with water against the CV, because the warmed air is very dry. For me ...
