Those dimensions don't seem correct to me. Maybe I'm misunderstanding. First it says the full length of the blue tube is only 8.5 inches long?
Then it says it's a foot and a quarter inches from front to taper. To clarify can you fill in the measurements on the illustration below. --Ed
For starters, I'm making a small model to work out how to make the big one.
I'm using a 4 1/2 to 5 inch Christmas ornament for the sphere part. I tried to mark off a grid using a compass but, every time I check my measurements, there off an 1/8"th of an inch.
Anyone know of any tools I can use or videos on YouTube that describe how I could mark a grid on the ball? I want to make sure my rod caps, AKA in the case of this model, 1/2" PVC pipe, to be equally spaced around the ball.
can anyone guess the rod combination from this pic? unseeing the single center rod on the top as level 1
example: level 2 any first rod, level 3, 2 to the left of the first pulled rod, level 4, 2 to the right of the first puled rod
Now I look at it again, I can't make out were the center rod is.
