Thread: Project Bezel from special metal

  1. #1

    Default Project Bezel from special metal

    And so, I asked Henry for a drawing of the bezel. He was very kind and gave his them. Having made a model based on his them, we made a small change - we added meat to the teeth so that we could add 1.5 x 6 mm tritium capsules to this structure without weakening the structure.

    At this stage, we checked the quality of the thread, it fits well. Now we will make a few pieces, at the moment without slots for tritium, since we need to interest the turner/milling machinist to continue.

    While it looks like this:

    Thank you for your interest, a little patience, unfortunately machinist is slow, I am waiting for this to fall into my hands. Price with delivery 95, why - when I have it, I'll show it)) Black will be too - black and shiny, hopefully.

    In a study which makes sloths look recklessly hyperactive, divers documenting the movements of olms (also known as the proteus) in Herzegovinian caves found that over a decade, individuals tended to move less than 10 metres in total.

    However, one extraordinarily inert individual was found not to have bothered moving once in over seven years.

    Can you make a slot in the bezel for slide-in film filters (eg lee filters)? just above the lens

    Everything is possible, but there are a couple of points - how thick and hard is this film? If there is a distance between the glass and the film, then it will play like a membrane. If just make a circular slit, then when it gets there, you won't be able to remove it without damage without removing the glass. Or make notches to hook it and take it out (right, blue), then the edge of the film will be visible. Or make a bezel on the bezel to press.

    Fascinating creature!

    Controlled experiments have shown that an olm can survive up to 10 years without food....

    Olms are gregarious, and usually aggregate either under stones or in fissures....

    The male can start courtship even without the presence of a female. He chases other males away from the chosen area, and may then secrete a female-attracting pheromone. When the female approaches, he starts to circle around her and fan her with his tail. Then he starts to touch the female's body with his snout, and the female touches his cloaca with her snout. At that point, he starts to move forward with a twitching motion, and the female follows. He then deposits the spermatophore, and the animals keep moving forward until the female hits it with her cloaca, after which she stops and stands still....

    Longevity is estimated at up to 58 years. A study published in Biology Letters estimated that they have a maximum lifespan of over 100 years and that the lifespan of an average adult is around 68.5 years. When compared to the longevity and body mass of other amphibians, olms are outliers, living longer than would be predicted from their size....

    Also, plain HDS bezels look great.
