  1. You appear to have gotten a bargain, the prices on this model are now over $4k delivered to Adelaide. This is from the same people you got yours from @dikman. Funny how a year later I find myself looking at the same thing.
  2. Not that I like to drag up old threads, but after doing the sums and chatting with the supplier, you folk here have put my mind at rest with the decision for me to go ahead and get the 4500, over the smaller versions.
  3. It does indeed, i'd never played with that part until you asked. I'll have to start using it now. I drew a complex shape and used the 'linked offset' feature. It allows you to drag an expanding (or shrinking) copy of your shape away from (or towards) the centre of the original.
  4. I use inkscape for all my 2D design work. Ivydraw is a good mobile version for tablets (when you just have to sketch it right now)
  5. Love the lines of this one, the moulded area breaks it up nicely.
  6. That's one heavy duty tool bag. Very nice.

    It may lose some of it's shine in a day or two, but that looks amazing. One of these is definitely on my list to make, maybe with Bluetooth headphones for use in the workshop
  8. Nice combination of colour and pattern. That tri weave is an eye catcher
  9. I should have cut and stitched it back together to make it look patched!
  10. Sketch book cover from Veg tan, hand dyed and stitched. I had an issue with the left inside piece, it had shrunk enough after dying that it no longer fitted, so a patch was made and attached. There is a little residual wax on the surface that is visible in some of the pics.
  11. Nice work! i'm about to take pics of a sketch book cover that has a pretty similar closure.
  12. The tab idea is quite clever indeed. Very well executed.
