I remember you turning down my offer . I've not got enough Ti foil 'in stock' ATM, I did then .
I didn't have the pot 'then'..
If you enter the appropriate parameters in the PostScript template, it will print the weight of the finished article on the template...
% foil parameters
/thickness 0.15 def % thickness of foil (mm)
/density 2.7 def % density of foil [Al=2.7, Ti=4.5]
i never realised cones needed to be planished?...
I'll call round at some point with a file and some sandpaper...
My cone has gone
And my reply
It was modded out as an offensive post...
Fret not Mole.... I have some Vias for you!
Dont think that was the forum maintenance. More likely the ugly police
AND now my feelings are so hurt I have a Ti cone on the way
Boy, that is fugly...
More importantly, I'd suggest that burner is way too big for that pot/cone setup.
I did my best CP
Yep - it was the burner I had handy...I have plenty of others....
Urghhh, stick to the day job
Wow, you guys are harsh!
I care not; form follows function
....and you can forget the Via's
They were all packed up too....
I can't get my head round this, either my paper tape is out (though it matches with a steal ruler i have) or the script ain't working for me
Every time i measure i get 410mm for cir, checked the script & i have 411mm writen down there as i thought i'd try it at that first for fit, but its still to small?
Does anyone have a toaks 900 130mm dia they can measure for me?
Wild guess, when you print the pdf, is it scaling it to fit the paper rather than printing full size?
I've not got a Toaks pot to measure, but Pi x D on a 130mm pot is approx 410mm, so your numbers look sane on the face of it.
@JimH no idea, but I doubt it as it was printed out over 3 sheets of A4 & the rest of it looks ok. Thought maybe i was lining the cut outs up wrong but counted the holes each side of the halfway line & they were good according to the first page of the pdf
Think I've sussed it, my script has 20 holes top & 23 bottom but the first page of the pdf that i was going by to join the pieces together only has 19 top & 22 bottom. I thought it was a draft of the finished piece, is it not?
edit: will try again tomorrow sticking the pieces together so they give the no. of holes I have in the script & wont even consider what i thought the halfway line to be as anything to see if that works. I think it will, cause it looks like its about that much out.
