Sadly, no real progress today. Health issues made me less effective than I'd like.
I hope to get some work done on a few commissions tomorrow, though the most important thing will be to help my student. Fortunately, there's a lot of polishing to do, and that's a good thing to work on with a student here, since it's completely interruptible!
On Wed. I'll set up the tack welder and see if that will help to position the bail bits onto my scent lockets. I'm hoping it will, but if it does not, I can go cback to the (annoying) positionaing method. The tack welding would be grdat since it keeps the components in place while the soldering happens; else, I have to set things up to do that, and that's really a hassle with these pieces. So wish me luck!
