  • George, I was referring more to the diameter of the teeth or nails themselves, but it seems that’s not critical if you’re just using nails, or drapery hooks as I've seen described in books. It seems to me that the diameter is more important when it comes to the transferring colour to the size. The pins or rods in the Cockerell video seemed to be about 1/8” in diameter. Brian

  • I have a couple of questions regarding combs and rakes. What diameter is common for the teeth themselves of combs and rakes? Also what about the diameter of the pins or rods that are used to transfer the ink to the size? In the Cockerell video they seem to be about 1/8” in diameter. Finally what material is best? I could use brass or stainless steel teeth, stainless being my...

  • Hi Iris, I will add a skimmer and it will work very similar to the combs. I now have a marbling tray from Talus with that extra compartment at one end. The skimmer will skim into that area. I could have one use skimmers like a piece of newspaper or the traditional board. I have not tacked the issue of laying down or picking up the sheet of paper, that’s a little more complicated...

  • Hi xxxe, I haven’t actually marbled paper on the machine yet so I don’t know how similar two different sheets will be, I’ll let you know. Brian

  • I've reassembled my prototype marbling machine and made a video of it that I posted on YouTube. A picture is worth a thousand words, a video even more. Just keep in mind that this is a proof of concept. I assembled it over a couple of days using materials and parts I had around the shop. I used film canisters for the ink pots. I welded together steel combs and rakes and sandblasted...

  • George, Well if your rakes and combs are dipped to 1/8” off the bottom of the tray, then the level of the size is much less of a concern however I still need a more or less constant depth for the gridwork of pins that deliver the colour (that jig we see in the cockerel video). Does that gridwork of pins have a name? I presume these pins just touch the surface or do they go deeper...

  • Hi Roger, Yes, another option is to have a separate reservoir and a valve that opens when the size drops below a certain level, similar to the ball float in the tank of a toilet. Brian

  • George, Thank your suggestion on the vat size. Since the size of the paper, the vat and all the combs are linked its important I get that part right. As I make handmade paper I rarely buy machine made so I'm not familiar with the most common sizes. Others have also mentioned that a one inch gap around the paper would be a better choice. I didn't see the plastic vat you mentioned on...
