Hello to everyone.
I just signed up here. I am not a lumber jock. I am looking for advice here.
I have a small (very small) project.
I want to make a “watch mandel.” At this time no such thing exists. I run a small watch manufacturing company – Stuhrling Original. Our website is www.stuhrling.com.
We need to put the size of wrist that each watch can accommodate. For instance: fits sizes 7-1/2” to 8-3/4”
There are a couple of inexact ways to measure and even if they are exact, it is quite difficult to measure using even the best of calipers.
In the jewelery industry, they make “mandels” for telling the size of rings. This is a long “conical” shaped tool that you can slide the ring onto and there are markings on the tool to tell you the size of the ring.
I would like to make a large conical shaped piece of wood with scores in it for the sizes that will range from a five inch opening to a twelve inch opening. I have drawn a schematic which shows the width and length of the overall finished piece with the scores in it as well. This is not something that would be used for any type of prototype for making an invention of some sort. I only want it for our own internal use for measuring the sizes of the watches with the straps.
I figure this is something that would be made on a lathe. Willing to pay for it or even trade a watch for it.
Anybody out there interested in helping me or any advice, please feel free to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all!
