« Part 3: the pieces become a sub assembly Part 4 of It was made to comb mail series Part 5: Putting draft where it's needed »

Here are the completed rib and finger assemblies ready, for the next step..

You can see the sides of the ribs have draft and the edges have been radius-ed.
Regrettably, i didn’t get any photographs of the method used to apply the draft.

I am going to try illustrating it in the next entry because it is a critical operation.

I also need to make an Editor’s note here: I made a mistake in describing the parting line of the ribs.

Hopefully, the images will clarify the correct parting location.

I would also like to say that if anything I type is not clear to you, if you have a question, or think I am full of bull, I welcome all comments or questions.

Well when you are making patterns I guess there are some ignorant people who may think so.

Great job. Some of us still have interest in pattern making. This is great!

I appreciate the positive feedback. I wondered if I would get laughed off the website for trying to imitate a writer, discussing an antiquated subject. Most people don’t even know where castings come from, let alone what a pattern is.

Have your say...
