Part 1: The dark forces unite.... not really.

12-31-2011 07:23 AM by MSlumberjocks | 31 comments »

Today marked the beginning of a joint Mississippi lumberjocks project…. For now, I just want to take a moment and ask that if anyone happens to figure out what the project is, please don’t spoil the fun and post what it is….. So, after a bit of delay on KTMM’s part….. (SWMBO hit him with a honeydo list), he was finally able to make it to William’s shop. SuperDav721 beat him getting there…. The three started the project out with a cup (or thr...

Part 2: Four days later and a post...

01-05-2012 11:18 PM by MSlumberjocks | 10 comments »

Monday, (the 2nd), William and I (KTMM) got together again for a short while to cut some circles. William had already done a dry fitting of the frames for our top secret project, which looked great. The two that we’ve cut look great. William has done some more work on a few triangular pieces that fit into the frame, that part isn’t pictured. Here’s my backside as I cut some circles…. A simple router jig and a bit of measuring is the easiest way I...

Part 4: The Parts Department

01-18-2012 04:16 AM by MSlumberjocks | 23 comments »

Ok, the cat is fighting to get out of the bag, because after this post, everyone should know what we’re building. So I guess our top secret project will be only a bottom secret project, or no secret at all. Anyway, although it’s been rough the last few weeks for me, I’ve gotten some work done in the parts department. While this project has a very well thought out design, some of the parts are headscratchers. I am learning a few new techniques on this project. So here we go. ...

Part 5: The Assembly Line

01-23-2012 06:21 AM by MSlumberjocks | 95 comments »

To keep things seperated nicely, this post will start into the assembly process. I (William) have started assembly of certain sub-assemblies. The assembly of the entire thing cannot begin in earnest until KTMM gets back to Vicksburg to do some of his magic on the frame. Some of the sub-assemblies though that are already to a finished state, I’m taking the liberty of going ahead with some of them.So,I ended my last post with the for trunnion assemblies already partially done.To assemble ...

Part 6: The Wheels On The TSP.......

01-26-2012 01:17 AM by MSlumberjocks | 100 comments »

The wheels on the top secret project go round and round, round an….... Ok, I’ll stop that since the one I’ve worked on so far isn’t going around too well.I (William) am making a seperate post on the wheels since it has been my biggest fiasco of this project thus far. We (KTMM and I) changed the design of the wheels from the plan to use the material we had. I had this grand idea on how to true the circumference up balance it on my lathe. This post will start with the...

Part 7: The Race To The Finish Line

02-20-2012 03:33 AM by MSlumberjocks | 51 comments »

So now that KTMM has his band saw at his shop, and I (William) am left alone with mine, all that is left is for each of us to finish up the details.I must admit, if you’eve kept up with the blog, that I am ahead of him already. So it really isn’t a fair comparison. Still the same though, I though I’d start a new blog entry for the seperate finishing. I’ll post mine here, and I hope KTMM will do the same. I mentioned yesterday, way down at the bottom of the last entr...
