    Thanks for the warning! I watched at half speed (just change it in settings at the bottom of the youtube screen) and enjoyed it. I'm impressed at how effortless it's made to look.

    My favourite was a visicook with a glass pot, which lasted years. I wish I'd bought a couple of spares as when the electrics gave up, I found they no longer made them.

    I currently use two - one...

    Cookson do a number of these. My preferred option are NVF M024, which lie flat and are very neat but if you really want small, these are fine - NVF M053. They also do some round versions, but for...

    Dennis, as has so often been the case over the years, I'd love to be part of your family :) And not just for the bling - though those are delicious!

    I think that's very stylish Caroline - definitely wear it more.

    I also suspect that's the sort of design that would do really well as a tutorial for the many keen wirewrappers out there.

    At least they were your own pieces - I dread it when family and friends turn up with things they need repairing and I have no idea of their history!

    Elegantly done - and both pieces still look...

    I would be inclined to agree with Dennis. Put a little bit of a bevel on the outer edge for appearance, and glue in place, which will look much neater than a rubover on a flat top.

    Just buy a piece of fine silver sheet cut to the width and length you want. By far the easiest way to buy bezel strips, and lets you choose your preferred gauge as well - I think most of us would...

    The flattened curbs have been hammered and then filed to flat. There are several youtube tutorials on this (mainly in hefty gold!)

    I think I'd go for an endcap (just a basic bezel) for the top, with a jump ring soldered to the top and just epoxy into place. For even more subtlety, you could just use a small disc (not too thin or...

    Most of the information out there suggests you can solder gold filled. This is, in fact, rarely the case, especially with fine gauges. You will almost inevitably burn off the gold outer layer,...

    Very nicely done - clear, concise and with the addition of gauge (and perhaps mention of presoldering rings), very useful.

    Fantastic as ever Dennis. I love the addition of the hair pieces - we've seen your barrettes before, but the hairband is inspired!

    What a lucky recipient :)

    Wolf Tools wax carving set - unused

    I had to get something out of the drawer of shame, and found, amongst other things, this set of unopened, unused Wolf Tools.

    They're much too nice for someone not to be making use of them.
