Boreing out a hub a water-wheel
« on: September 19, 2017, 05:29:42 PM »
I'm getting really behind on posting my videos, lots to edit, just very overworked! At the moment I'm working on a feature film, making all the "iron work" and some more for a film set in the 1830ies.

here is a brief extract of the many things I have to do!

I don't think Elf and safety would approve!


More coming later,  regards, Matthew

Sounds very interesting but I have no idea what you are making, would you explain a little more?
Thanks!

Well, it's the hub from a waterwheel that  built for a feature film that is being shot just outside Paris at the moment. I made the metal parts, I also made a drive with an electric motor to make it look as though it actually works!

Sorry I've been a bit too busy to post any more videos about this.

All the best, Matthew
