I've made a new hand gate in smaller diameter brass.



Using f 22 has made a big difference, Phil - although it takes forever for the exposure.  :lol:

I'm only taking about 20 shots now - and using the middle nine.

I can't see any artefacts.

It depends on how much light you have Max, my shots take just a couple of seconds if that.

"Using f 22 has made a big difference, Phil - although it takes forever for the exposure.  :lol:

Max, if you use a SLR, you might have a DOF preview button, this shows the DOF and is not the same as the picture you see on the screen, you will notice at f22 that a great percentage of the shots are in focus, so there is no need to take 20 pictures, 8 is probably all you need, if that.

That only applies if you can see if it's in focus.  :lol:

I only use the screen to get a general idea if I'm pointing it in the right direction.     :???:

I always find that pointing it in the right direction is easy as long as the round glass bit is in the front and not the square ;-)

Moving right along . . .

There is to be a shed erected on the other side of the winch motor.

First I have to clear the ground.



I've made a dam around the space for the footplate of the building.



And back filled the earth around it.

Next I drilled a hole through the base plate of the building and through the base board.



And then the holes were enlarged to take the RCA jack and styrene plate.



Ralph seems happy with the job so far.

Now we go in two directions.  Fairing the back fill up to the base plate and constructing the building.

The edge of the MDF base plate is sealed with sticky tape, and then the gap is back filled.

The mix is the same as for ballasting - 60 - 40 PVA but using sieved dolomite.



I'm doing one side at a time.

So, now we have the carcass of the building ready for finish sanding and cladding.





I rather fancy breeze blocks.

The next step is to make the base plate for the roof.

It's important that it's flat, so when I attach the stiffeners, I press it on a piece of plate glass.



The stiffeners also act as locating lugs, so it drops neatly on to the walls.



So far; so good.

Now for the pointy bit on the top.





Now for some breeze blocks for the walls and some lights so that the tradies can do the second fix.
