I think you should have gone for two (or more) stories with a hinged dome roof and a hoist Smiley, although it looks like the dome isn't really intended to open.

My wife is also a weaver and spinner (why we ended up with sheep for nearly 30 years) from a family of weavers and spinners, although she's been essential ly inactive since our first kid, now a 35 year old mom, decided they were climbing toys.  Mrs. Moose's oldest sister is a very active weaver with her own dedicated weaving room and an impressiv e collectio n of yarn and thread for it.

The Mooselake Manor South's undersize d garage shop just gained a Jet 1221SP wood lathe, although it turned out to be too high for the workbench (way taller than the 10x15s at the turners club) and will require an expeditio n to the lumber store to build a new stand.  No bandsaw here either, and any more additions may require their own ceiling suspensio ns.  It joined a little 3018 CNC router whose second test cut was an eccentric Gearotic gear in cardboard (first real project was a plaque with Mrs. Moose's name) that should be suitable for milling PCBs along with wooden gears.  The managemen t has cautioned that the shop stocking spree is coming to an end.

Hope you find time before Christmas

I'd love to know what you put in your morning tea Kirk  Wink

When I paid a visit to the UK back in February my only 'must see' location during a weekend in London was the Heath Robinson museum, which didn't exist last time I was north of the equator. Best known for his wonderful invention s he was also a very accomplis hed artist and illustrat or of many more serious books.

My current CNC router design is much less "Heath Robinson" that the earlier wooden framed version and is all the better for it! With luck my finished clock will reflect that. I should have some time to make further progress in the coming week.
