    Ive been studying globes that are hand made, so ive now made my first globe for my D D AUSTRAMAX 2/300. Im impressed with myself and my ability to fettle. 20191022_140540.jpg 20191022_140548.jpg 20191022_140610.jpg 20191022_140639.jpg 20191022_141018.jpg

    Good job, Darryl.

    What gauge brass did you use?

    You bought mica in Germany ?
    Is there not a stove, gas heater, company in Australia who sells it ?
    I can buy it here at the local stove shop. Where they sell gas, wood pellets stoves. If mica is to thick you can split it.

    hi tony I used 0.29of a mm. I don't know what that is in gauge , I had read on the Coleman page the fella used 40 gauge sheet metal. I figured that I have a few early Austramax with no globes I would make some to suit the time period, I have a couple that have the mica globe, I made this with some basic tool it would be nice to have a fold/bender guillotine, but how would I hone my skills
