    Ed, Oh horrors! I do hope that what that infusion is will be helpful. It is now a week later, I hope to see you back here again. Thinking of you and your wife. Janel
  3. Thank you marsto1, I appreciate hearing this from you. The members who post have made this forum a valuable resource. Janel
  4. Hi Ed, Sorry to learn of advancing flexibility issues. I am glad that you can still carve. I also have a way of believing that most of what disappears will show itself for discovery and return some day. I am curious about the backer that you are carving on ... is it leather? Well used I must say, and good idea. Happy New Year wishes to you! Janel
  5. Thank you Andrew V! Janel
  6. Hi Ed! Happy New looking forward Year! A leaf! I am looking forward to seeing what you do with this wood and subject! Janel
  7. Thank you Yoshii, Your creations are enjoyable and heart warming! Many good wishes to you this holiday season, and may you stay healthy and happily busy in the new year! Janel
  8. I apologize but I do not know how to answer that question. It would be good to be able to do so. Lets hope that they do not need fixing!
  9. I have two NSK micrometers. They are different from one another, though at the moment I do not have their descriptions at hand. The first was purchased new, the other used, purchased from another carver met through this forum. They both work well. I set them up to use different sized collets for the two main tool bit diameters. A time saver, mainly. One has a manual speed dial, the other is foot pedal speed controlled. The original machine I used for heavy waste removal. It has held up well. The other unit uses finer bits. That said, for the majority of days and hours I spent c

  11. On the forum there are topics and posts about extraction fans of all sorts, from built in with capture trays to a box fan with a filter the same size as the fan ... all designed to capture the dusts. Filters should have the best rating for smallest particle capture. Here is one among many results from a search (upper right corner of window) using "extraction":
  12. Welcome back! Janel
  13. Hi Rebecca.D, Use some search terms in the Search option at the upper right of the page. Using ' antler ' would be a good start. There has been much discussion about carving this material. Sorry to deflect answering, but there is a wealth of information already posted on the forum about carving antler, tusk and bone, in much broader detail than a singular response could give. Your first ' Search ' response will present a lot of reading material, and will launch your pursuit of answers and recommendations easily. Let us know how your concept is working out. Janel
  14. It is good to read that you were using water while drilling. There is good reason to not breath the dust from drilling or working with shell materials. There are topics and posts about this on the forum from past years' contributions. Janel
  15. Welcome to you Edward S, Folks check in from time to time. Meanwhile, you can find topics from earlier years about coin carving by using the SEARCH function or by using a search engine mentioning The Carving Path in the terms. I hope that you find some good tips in the knowledge stored within the forum. Janel
