finished doll

Finally got the doll finished. That's pushing it too close. The head,hands, and feet are polymer clay. The body is a coathanger bent appropriately and epoxied here and there. The Clothes were all hand sewn except for the hat which is the tip of the thumb of a glove.

That is a great looking piece of work. Just confirms my suspicions, your a man of many talents. Suspicions my eye, I knew it the first time I met you here on the forum.She will love it John. BTW did you ever harden that chisel you milled a while back and how does it cut? Mitch

Mitch I did harden it and put in a 5/8" shaft. I've used it a few times while roughing out some things. It cuts fine. I didn't use it enough to see how well it holds an edge. I did use it enough to know I still like my Thompson gouge better. I'll have to play with it more to figure out why.

John
I am sure I am not telling you anything you don't already know here but,it is the superior cryogenic steel he is using and your using a carbon steel. There is a whole lot of new technology in steel making since carbon steel was the new kid on the block. I have made a couple since getting my mill and they cut good but I am not happy with the end mill I am using, the bottom is flat and I want to have it round. Need some type of bull nosed end mill for this but don't see any in the Enco catalog.




going to stand the rod up vertically and drill a hole in the rod and then lay flat and mill one after the holidays to see how this works. Far as sharpening I sharpen mine even when cutting good to see how it keeps an edge and am disappointed. My hardening of the rod is not good enough . Again John, that is a great job on the doll. Did you make the clothes too? Have a Happy Holiday. Mitch

Mitch They may call them Bull nose or round nose mills. They have a ton of them in all sorts of sizes. I think I bought mine from Grizzly. MSCdirect is a good place to look for odd shaped cutters.
