  7. Hungarian style saber

    First i ground one fuller. Secound fuller must be convergent to first (you have to lose thickness on the edge between fullers) Now it's time to bend our fullers and grind thickness. Now we see that our fullers don't have dimensions what we wanted. We lose to much width of the fullers, so it's time to make them wider. Using stuff like this you make them wider. Later i used (secound picture) turning insert. So it's done ! Now grinding, grinding, ........ I've made bar with velcro and it's perfect

    Yea it's lost wax tree i didnt take a photo when it was made of wax. I carved elements and casted them in silver (picture on 1 side), using castaldo rubber I made mold to wax injection. Here is movie how it looks and what is next: Im using centrifugal casting machine like this: Don't know good books but everything you can find on youtube. Buy jewelry wax and practice carving it will be perfect at the beginning.

    Finally i want to make it in bronze, its hard to buy bronze plate. I don't have good experience in bending bronze (crack). Also i think it can deforme when will be bended 90 deg after pressing (stretching etc.). When you made rubber form next wax models are made in seconds. In 1 cast you can place all. I think it's good way If i don't forget i will add more pics from casting.
