I don’t know if you guys want to see these kinds of things, most of the stuff I use the GF for is in conjunction with other tools or processes, this is an example.
I have been hired to build some period electrical lighting props for a TV show, set in the late 19th century. One of the components needed is a power buss, where voltage from a source is connected to 4 electric lamps. I made it by building the insides in brass, then I made a finger jointed box on the GF to hold everything while I cast it in Polyurethane. After that the box was removed & tossed.
Here are some photos: First, the insides. Doesn’t need to look pretty because it will be embedded in plastic:
Here is the box that holds every thing for casting. Unfortunately dummy me I forgot to take a pic of the box assembled. But you get the idea. The brass screws are slipped through the holes, so that the ends opposite the heads will be outside the box when the casting is completed.
Here is the result. There is some parallax in the photo that makes it look a little bent, but it is straight!
In case you’re still reading, here is a photo of one of the electric lamp props I made. I just threw it in for fun… The only use of the GF on this was to cut the felt circle on the bottom (which is really helpful, btw!)
