Planks and Plating step-by-step link

Wow, that's a great start!

I'm looking forward to seeing that when it's complete.

I like the idea of using the gear to get regular rivets. I wonder if a metal gear would be able to do a similar thing on thin styrene sheets.

I am still toying around with it, a metal gear would certainly take the pressure better, this plastic one is bending when working on card……..come to think of it I have an old wind-up alarm clock around here somewhere, might be a decebnt source of gears!

There's actually a tool used for getting embroidery evenly spaced, it's more or less a pizza cutter wheel with teeth on it. Just a thought.

Excellent stuff! Thanks for the name-drop!

I've used strips of rivets before – you could consider brass sheet instead of card. I get mine from tubes of tomato puree. It's nice and thin and holds its shape when 'rivetted' very nicely.

Keep it coming!

Pounce wheel used in making sewing patterns

Lion and Ming is that device going to make impressions or holes?

I confess a complete ignorance of all matters sewing.

I am looking forward to the next installment. Especially if you solve the problem of rails.

John the Greater,

I am working on, and worried about, that exact matter.

I think I may have a solution but need to do some prototype work before committing to the whole thing.
