« Part 14: Back window, Chapter 12 Part 15 of VW Bulli camper bus series Part 16: Front window parts, Chapter 14 »

.
This is the blog of the building of the VW bus according my pattern.
.


.
.
This build is from the prototype and after this is done I always do some changes in the drawing where necessary. So the final plan is a little (better) different. I used mostly Chery and Ash for the build.
.
. Comments are much appreciated.

I have a heavy disk sander with speed regulation and I get high quality sand paper for free.

GREAT JOB on the doors, the spacer underneath the doors is a great touch for lining things up,
I’m defiantly going the use this door hinge on something one day it’s such a great solution for making the doors work..

That slower speed on the sander sounds like a winner to me.

It’s the Free sand paper that makes all the difference, free makes everything better. LOL

One thing I really like about this hinge is, if something happens with this hinge and it gets damaged it’s all on the outside where it can be easily repaired.

Dutchy, Do you guys in Dutchland actually have a 4.2mm drill,

or were you too lazy to type the long 27/64” (4.219mm) actual size?

Here in Aus. our metric only exists in .5mm increments and I don’t have a metal lathe to shave that .3mm off a 4.5mm cobalt drill bit.

Sickenning isn’t it. When I sand, I wonder how can anyone sand curves into a straight piece of wood using a flat disc… That is why I continually quiz Dutchy about his sanding techniques!
Once I even tried sanding wearing a pair of clogs, to get in the mood, but all that achieved was unevenly ground toenails… through my, now open-toed clogs.

Darn, You (Dutchy), crowie, rc and far too many other LJ’ers getting free goodies… Why is it that I have to give goodies away for free to make/keep friends?

Yes we have, but only as a HSS metal drill bit

Dutchy from the look of Ducky’s shop he’s got more tools than he can use now. LOL

He’s probable got a set or two but can’t find them in amongst all the toy’s he’s got!!!

I could be wrong but I don’t think so!!! ;->

Thanks buddy, your gesture is greatly appreciated. I will turn down your kind offer only because I just don’t work to that precision and would never use the in betweens (.0 and .5 sizes). Unfortunately your kind gesture would be wasted though greatly appreciated. If I did the Bulli, I’m guessing the 27/64” would suffice.

Smartie! Yes #4, you are closer to the truth than you thought… I have (at least in metric on the last count a few years ago, but in .5mm increments) a set of cheap bits I use as setup blocks, a good set of HSS, a set of cobalt and a set of bullet points… OOSP nearly forgot the set of brad points, the metric and imperial forstner bits, small set of tapered drill bits, countersink bits, spade bits, SDS masonry bits, TCT bits … and that’s not to mention the sets of imperials… I must be suffering from Gender dysphoria as I cannot resist a ”For Sale” tag… even in a tool shop.
Look as I might though I couldn’t find my 4.2 bit… I’s probably in my collection of 1.2mm to 13.2mm (in 1mm increments) but borrowed by the missus without telling me.
