Usefulness of Articles

Are there some articles you look at and then go, "I'm sure that is useful to someone." And then start to wonder who, if anyone is going to use it?

I just read back over the new article I wrote and thought the same thing.

has anyone else thought that? Have you thought that about a method that you yourself would post but don't think anyone would need it?

Sorry, I just feel the need to be vindicated for that article.

lol, then just ask if people like it honey, don't go fishing for compliments! Wink Actually, I find your article very useful. As long as I've been mailleing it never occurred to me to split FP 6-1 into two chains from one central chain like you have, but now that I've seen it my head is busting with ideas I want to try now.

I think every article here will have something for someone. If not the whole article, then maybe one key point or minor technique in it that someone hadn't thought of, but sets their creativity spinning off in a new direction once they've seen it or the idea has been planted in their head.

Congratulations on an article well written and thanks for the inspiration! Coif Cool Smiley

It's a nice article, though not a groundbreaking technique. I used a very similar approach to split the FP chain of my first watch chain a couple years ago, though I never made a tutorial for it.

Regardless, every contribution to the knowledge base is a welcome one Smile

Deirdre:
I wasn't fishing for compliments actually. I was just wondering if there was really much point in having the article. It was just something I did one day without throught on if it'd have a practical use.

Phong:
Then I see your watch chain and see it has at least one practical use. That never occured to me before.
BTW, how does the watch chain hold up at the split on yours?

Anyone interested in knowing how to put belt loops on a Piece of E4-1?
Another thing I worked on without thinking that anyone would want it

NB#2
The method I used to extend the chain is a quick method of construction. Anyone else do that?

Well, I stopped using that chain after the rings started opening (18swg 1/4" stainless) but that was in the rest of the chain. The split held up just fine.

That would be awesome! Belts are a very popular project and unless I missed it, we have no articles on them.

I highly agree a belt article would be excellent.
If you add that article maybe others might make articles about different patterns for belts.
good luck Laughing

not an actual belt as such, more like the loops like there would be on your jeans.

The great thing about this art is that one person can miss something that is completely obvious to another -- so sharing information is extremely useful!


The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.--Bertrand Russell
