Making A Candlestick Handle
Build a gauge to cut the slit of handle the next stage is to cut a slit in the base for the handle. For this, the need for you’ll to build another gauge. The cone on the bottom of the base is pretty of almost 28. Our gauge will have a slope 28 and will be enough with far from adapting to the base of a router. It must also draw aside the legs the candlestick (20). My turn has a rail of tube, thus this gauge is designed to adapt above the rail and the index to a bed plate which is maintained with the table on which my turn is assembled (21).
The various turns will require a different design for this gauge, but the common elements are that the top of the gauge must incline 28 and the slit in the top of the gauge must be in the exact center and must be classified to adapt to a casing of guide on the bed plate of router (22). This gauge is made of plywood, “and”, and “MDF for the top. I chose MDF because the slit in which the casing of guide functions is smoother than it would be so laminated of cut through. The gauge is basically a box with the cut of slits in before and the back thus it falls the surplus the turned candlestick. Before gauge faces the headstock and with the slips above the collar of plate before thus it is behind the front plate.
The back of the gauge slips above the candlestick below the cup candle. The tilted top is higher with before (23). However you build this gauge with your installation of turn, it is imperative that it not movement. ND there must be approximately 1/8” release between the top of the gauge and the base of the candlestick. Mine is a gauge in two parts: the box and a bed plate. The bed plate slips under the tube of turn and has four “of the holes drilled inside.
