Default Aluminium Bells

I bought them (Mike Reader, Aluminium Bells). They are great. I should have made them in the first place but the resins I made look very good when compared side by side.

Thanks for the compliment Taz. I did spend a bit of time on them.

If anyone is interested; I would sell the resins (would have to be careful shipping) and possibly sell the silicone tools.

Default Resins To Be Cheerful.....

What a stunning piece of work. I know from bitter experience just how much work has to go into all of the Eagle components, regardless of the material used, so to see these cast / moulded bells looking so good is a real joy. You must be getting excited about the prospect of another big step along the way!

Kindest regards

Patrick

I am getting excited, thanks Patrick.
I know how it has happened and it feels good, I am going to make some more brass work!
Apart from being a little short on material; this got done surprisingly quickly (machining out 5/16 tube to fit over 1/4 for the spine is still a chore).

Hi Todd
Eagle 1 is in paint.
Eagle 2 is planned - I don't know what pod to do; I have three standard type pods (in different colours) but thinking something else might be in order.

Started making the feet.
Bit of CNC work, marking out and even used some hand tools.

A bit more work done.
This was so difficult I must be doing something wrong; not sure if anyone can advise but I couldn't find brass channel at the correct size when I looked, making these from sheet is too time consuming. So much so; that it cannot be the right way.

If I continue with sheet and cannot find channel; I think I can do better with the soldering but to improve the general shape and to save time I will get these laser cut. I did offer this to the group to help meet the minimum charge, I am just going to get them done. I don't care care too much what the cost is! Give me a shout if anyone wants a set.

Feedback from elsewhere.
Machine the central channel from solid - I will do; that sounds much easier to deal with.
