Thus I have come to the "make stakes" for the teapot project. One of the prep items for this was to talk to Kevin Potter of PotterUSA, when I pass through Tucson, Az a few weeks ago when coming back from Texas. He said he would make the stake heads for me and to just send him the drawings.
Which brings us to to now. I have to do four drawings: The planishing stake, the rounding stake, the upper top curve, and the lower bottom curve.
I use QCAD to do my drawings so I can then print them out - or send along and get them made. I have templates for the curves but I must measure them, several times, before I actual enter the information into the program.
