Had the time today to put together a simple jig for aligning the hinge pieces when gluing. Only using cracy glue/cyanoacrylate for the moment, will try to get hold of chloroform later. It dissolves the acrylic instead of gluing, so it will both be stronger and look better. And it’s a bit more dangerous to use.
Getting some new ideas on how I can tweak the design so it’s easier to put together. I’ll post new drawings later.
So, Happy New Year! Late February there will be a new purse… hopefully =)
Jig in use.
Finetuning holes before making threads.
Gluing second part of hinges. Each hinge consists of three layers.
Testing treads made for a set screw and that I had a small enough unbraco bit.
