With the CC Sled (nearly) completed, in the last blog entry, it was time to put it to use.
However, it was not safe for human (or my) use….
There wasn’t a “Blade Guard Box”, nor did I have any hold downs.
This left fingers in serious peril!!!
ALL of that changed today….
I was able to attach the “Blade Guard Box”, for where the blade exits the sled.
I feel sooooo much safer now!!! ;^)
But that isn’t the reason for this posting….
I was also able to fabricate some hold downs for the sled.
This really does complete the sled.
Unless I decide to add some more attachments….
Like guides for miter cuts!!!
The design, for the hold downs, was stolen from many a LJ.
So due thanks are given!!!
I’ve seen many of these posted here….
These are just my version of someone else’s design!
OK, the REAL reason for this post….
I FINALLY put my DW788 Scroll Saw to use!!!
Before scrolling, I did use the Drill Press for the hole.
C’MON!!!! This was the first time I ever even used a scroll saw!!!
I only used it to “rough out” the shape….
Then used my Ridgid OSS for smoothing to final shape.
Dowels were drilled for T-bolts….
Then cut to length….
Then drilled the hold down for T-bolts.
Those holes were elongated to allow the dowel to pivot.
As you can see, I used more of the engineered bamboo flooring….
Gotta love the scrap bin!!!
Two of the four hold downs have longer T-bolts….
allowing clamping of thicker stock.
Oh, I almost forgot….
The “Blade Guard Box”
Although these did get fabricated in the Lair….
I don’t consider these a project….
Like the title says….
“I’m Not Worthy”!!!
Thanks for lookin’ in and readin’!!!
What did all y’all accomplish in the woodshop today???
