    My work (Tango)

    Hi Critical mind. I accept all critics, don't worry. Critics, if are well done, help to enhance the work. Despite I dislike a lot of details of my violin I am a little happy because one or two things are better comparing with previous violins and I sold all my violins. Now, my goal is to make a clean violin but I have to improve. Regards Tango

    Flatening a plane

    Hi Thanks all for the comments. I noticed I forgot to put in place the blade . So, I will put in place the blade and continue flattening some with sand paper in differents degrees but will let a little hollow to test. This plane I bought for the make the centre joint because is larger than my little plane. Ussually I do that with a cheap but tunned jack plane resulting a dificult job for me. Despite of this, center joint came up well because I am patient fellow (haha) however I want to do this in few strokes. Thanks all Tango

    Flatening a plane

    Hi all I am setting up a Stanley plane #5 (356mm). I planed over a granite surface with #80, #100and#120 sand paper. I am tired and can´t delete the original all factory marks. Does the plane need dead flat in all the sole? The present concavity seem to be a very little. All advices will be apreciated Thanks and regards Tango

    Extracting a yellow pigment from aloe

    Hi Uncle Duke I had no luck with the Aloe Socotrino leaves. Very few drops fell down from the cut I made on the leaves. And the worse thing I lost that few yellow tears I collected. So, I begin now by second time. I will inform to Maestronet. Regards Tango
