Hi Ruben,

How did you manage to wrap the veneer around the front of the light tray radius area? it seems like you used two pieces but I tried doing that can't manage to do it without getting rincles. Did you use more that 2 pieces?

And yes. I did read your veneering page.

Thanks

Use two pieces? How do the corner edges match up as far as looks (compared with the side soffit corners)? I apologize if you mentioned this somewhere, but I couldn't find it..

Has to be cut. No way you could do that wrap around with the curve and still look good. Unless of course there was some sort of special veneer

Aaargh! A bunch of the pics went missing last night. Looks like the domain that was hosting them expired. Can this be fixed please???

Thanks!

Well I have studied the sandmanx's pics of his radius curve front stage light trait and it only appears to seam at the center. almost indicating that only two large pieces were use. Half the radius being cover from one piece, wrap around from top to bottom. I tried replecating this with kraft paper but i get a couple wrinkles in the proccess. I heard of softning the veneer with special agent but I dont think the sandmanx went to that extreme. I have to tackle this project today and I think I can cut the whole bottom as one piece and the top bend as another and over lap them at the bottom curve and then cut and seam together but I would rather just find a way to wrap two pieces like sandmanx did cause otherwise the cut will have to be very straight and precise. Doing this on a curve keeping the same distance from the edge can be quite a challange.

If any body has any ideas please let them be heard now.

Thanks

Well it looks like the pics are gone. I haven't seen a response from Sandman and still no pics. Did anyone cache them? This thread was a wealth of knowledge for the AVS community but without reference pictures it's not much help... I could host the pics if someone has them....

Ruben is probably busy getting ready for cedia, hence the silence on this thread.

Man, I was only on page 8 of the thread when the pics disappeared! Now I'm kicking myself for not reading faster.

Ruben: Thanks very much for taking care of the images problem. It's greatly appreciated!!

Anyone know if it is possible to save the whole thread to your computer? I see you can save it as a notebook without the pics, but I was hoping to save it without individually saving each picture.
post #3642 of 3744
Yes...under thread tools you can choose Download this thread.

But the thread tools are usually hidden by the advertising that appears in that corner! Most annoying!

BTW auburnu008 is looking for the thread complete with pictures, the process you suggest only pulls down the text...

Yea, thread tools only saves text and not pictures. I just set me preferences to show 60 posts per page and used the "file save page as" in firefox and saved each page individually.
post #3646 of 3744
3600 pages, 60 posts per page, thats still 60 saved pages...I havent looked, but is 60 the max posts per page I take it?

I wrote the screen scaping tool in 5 minutes, so I doubt it is perfect but should be mostly there.

I am going to delete it in a couple of days so it doesn't kill my bandwidth...

Any update on this question?

I was registered over at http://www.smxscreen.com/forum, a year and a half ago and found Sandman's detailed write-ups absolutely invaluable. Anyone have an archived version, or does it reside somewhere else now?

I tried to look at the web archive version from 2008 but couldn't find any of the good writeups: http://web.archive.org/web/200805101...een.com/forum/. You can see some good threads but none of Sandman's detailed write-ups.

Any info you guys could provide would be really helpful...

By the way, I know it doesn't have to be said but Sandman: you have the greatest HT I have ever seen. Big congrats!!!
post #3653 of 3744
Lots of the write ups and details were removed, including from these forums after he founded his new SMX company! No wonder, no?!

Perhaps someone has an older saved version of the thread prior SandmanX removed all the details?

Those forums had all the same details that are in this thread except they were organized by category. If you have any questions, you can search this thread by using the "search within thread function" or ask me and I can answer.

Best,

Are you looking for the process(?) because the link above with the thread already converted to PDF worked for me...
post #3660 of 3744
Yes, the thread is still alive, just right click and save it to your computer. Be aware that it is 1227 pages long as a PDF.
