The epoxy cured overnight, and this morning I sanded the yuloh’s shaft in preparation for varnishing. I also started sanding the blade to give it a better finish. I’ll paint the lower part of the yuloh.
Until I receive a stainless steel pivot pin from the firm that is manufacturing it, I am reluctant to drill into the shaft to form a cavity for the pivot cup. I shall use the pin to shape a cup in an epoxy base – that is my plan. I’ll coat the rounded end of the pin with grease to prevent it from sticking to the epoxy. The reciprocal pieces should fit together perfectly.
I shall have to devise a means of suspending the pin in the epoxy so that no more than half of the ball is submerged in the epoxy. If that were to happen I would not be able to extract the pin from the cured epoxy without cutting into it.
