‘Minnow’s’ Yuloh – Part 9

Things didn’t work out as I expected, because I lost my nerve. Instead of leaving the support pin in the epoxy, I withdrew it. I had visions of the pin being trapped in the hole. I took the view that it would be safer to form the epoxy paste with a spatula. While I was about it I filled abrasions on the shaft. I also filled gaps between the pin and the wooden block into which it was fixed.

Greetings Bill,

Not to fear the next time: applying heat to the pin with a blow torch would have softened the epoxy enough to pull the pin out.

I know it's been a while, but I'm making my fist yuloh. Where on Earth did you get that pivot pin?
