This method allows the gap between the disk and the table to be bridged so that the piece is held securely as it moves into the sander. 13. If small or tiny pieces must be drilled with a drill press, and larger drill bits or center bits are used, the work piece must be braced to the table with clamps or a vise. Use an underlay (particleboard or plywood) to avoid drilling into the workbench, and also to prevent splitting the opposite side. In any case, the piece must be held securely and firmly.

The placement of the massing of a single building or a group of buildings on a model base will affect the weight of its orientation. Through its shape and size, the base can either reinforce, neutralize, or contrast the design scheme. The “center” of a design (as in a city square, a central space, the main focus of a building) can be further highlighted by a similarly shaped base. Areas along the edge will stand out clearly from the center. The shape of the model base also influences the direction of viewing: while regular polygons, squares, and circles can be easily seen from any side, directional rectangular shapes and free-form shapes will emphasize a particular direction.

Special tools are needed to work with metals; precise handling is especially important with these materials. Consequently, sharp cutting without nicks and precisely cut angles are necessary, as are the right pliers and shears used for bending and cutting. qxd 36 11/12/07 8:55 AM Page 36 3 MATERIALS AN D EQU I PMENT Protective goggles must always be worn while operating saws, drills, lathes, milling machines, and grinders.
