s8 love plan
« on: December 29, 2012, 04:49:16 PM »

i think i now have enough materials to start something i thought about almost as soon as i got my loves in the mail, i'm gonna make a body of a top that's either relatively normal sized, or oversized, depending on what you think normal is... and i'm gonna make it in a way that the s8 love fits into it and works as it's tip.

is 55dollars a lot for a bearing tip setup? well... it might be if it wasn't the best bearing tip setup you're going to get.

and i'm going to call my removable top body form a Glove...   ;D hehehe

cuz seriously... the tip setup is usually the thing i think about and what i dread to think about when i think about what i would do or how i would go about doing something with the making of tops.

i hope to make several differently shaped gloves for my loves, just to try different things...

this is a long term project so don't expect to see results soon, i just thought i'd present the thought to the community and encourage any makers to make some gloves.

(i haven't already said this have i? i mean, not here anyways).

Sounds interesting. I am seeing that the tips for me are the hardest part of making a top too.

Nice idea... I have in mind something like this, a one way bearing tip system with a normal s8 tip with normal bearings as final edge. This can be made only for big tops I think, I send some materials to Eric but we did not talk yet of my idea.

Haha!

Maybe you need a spintop to compliment your clothing! (Leather jacket with matching leather top!) :D

I wonder if you stacked pieces of leather and glued then clamped them if you could turn them on a lathe into a top? ...  8)
