Adopted a sumitsubo
John, very much looking forward to seeing the sumitsubo! Thanks for posting a topic, I'm still working out the details of moderation.
I reduced the number of posts needing approval per new user to one from five (default setting).
I also tried to edit the post to show the photos, but no such luck.
Back to the sumitsubo, this one came (and was properly photographed and documented) without a pin. So I'll need to fabricate and fit a suitable replacement. I'm thinking a steel rod with a small wooden knob. Friction fit would be simple or else I might embed a small disc magnet in the closed-bore end. I'm not sure whether that's a brilliant idea, or heresy...
Nice example, especially considering the age. It's looking pretty good for being nearly 100 years on at this point.
I think a friction fit pin is probably best.
Glad to hear that the linking is fixed or wasn't really problematic. I am working on the documentation, the company that creates this software is Gvectors and they have a forum. So I'm waiting for approval on my post on their forum.
