Hmmm... :huh:


... I think this is a very, very good idea and it could be a really interesting section! :thumbsup:

 

To see pics of what someone is making would help people to better understand what's happening and how they may be able to help out, and it may even inspire others to have a go at their own projects.

 

We could also have a bit where we could recommend local 'hobbyists' who would be prepared to help out with little jobs that may need specialist equipment or tools or skills, but where the cost of these are too expensive to buy for a one-off project - maybe a place where skills could be exchanged instead of (or as well as) cash.

 

Off the top of my head I'm thinking maybe where a bit of welding or latheing (is that even a word?) is required.

 

It might even encourage more people back onto the forum as we are all nosey and like to know what other people are up to.

 

Seems like a 'fun' idea to me, but I suppose on here it would only be a matter of time before it was abused, and people started posting that they needed help to construct their water-powered push bike or their perpetual motion dog-walker... :roll:

We already have an existing crafts group . Look under sheffield interest groups.

Yep - I've seen that, but I think the OP had in mind (well I certainly did anyway) a sort of sub-section for ongoing projects, where progress could be seen in photos and people could chip in and exchange ideas...

 

... a sort of WIP place for small 'engineering' projects and 'inventions', as opposed to having to wade through masses of "what's the best way to stuff my cushions" type of threads.

 

But it would appear from your reply that you think the existing crafts group is adequate so it looks like it's another good idea that's been rejected...  :(

That would be my view, I've just made something to hang my welding helmet on, most of the talk in the craft section is pretty much for paper, fabric crafters I might make the odd scented candles now and then, I'm not sure bending 22mm copper pipe fits in with those that already frequent the craft forum as it currently stands.

I have some copper bending springs, somewhere in my shed, certainly..,I could help with that...

 

 

I was meaning Initially, maybe a Sub Section within Crafts: like the OP suggested - Work in Process, like the other Crafters have like Needle Point, that would work well..

Maybe A separate 'Unfinished Projects and WIP Pics' section for Metal, Building etc...

Or 'My Projects' section.

I use cheap metal bender, as 22mm i find 22mm to be quite tough going using springs.

 

todays project was a simple pallet one, I made a basic strawberry crate, it should be big enough to hold 18-20 plants.
