Here is a few shots of what I have managed so far.

For the wing nut threads I have used those double ended threaded units that are often found on beds and table legs in the corners.

I have used she oak for the two end brackets and tumblers.

The main body is of good quality redwood.

The top bar is swivelling on self centring pivot blocks that you can buy for rod end bearings, without the threaded part.

The handle is captivated by a roll pin in a groove and another on the opposite side so the blade holders dont spin.

In the ends of the tumblers I have used olite sintered bronze bushes and the upper rod pivot self alighning bearings to let everything settle where it wants to if you move the end plates for tracking.

Main.frame timber is hickory with an ebony knob.
Just the clamping bolts and bolts to buy tomorrow and I will give it a trial run in the vice.

Then onto the rest of the machine this week.

The blade holders are made from 7/16” silver steel bar which has been cyt half way to create a ledge, then using high grade gauge plate I made the clamps to hold the blade using high tensile bolts which thread into to bar itself.
The two bars can be turned and fixed in any position if needed.

The frame brackets that hold it onto the lower slider bar were turnde at the junction where they enter the end rail and glued and screwed from the inside ege for strength.

The handle has a captive nut inside which is drilled the same size as the nut a pulled into the hole with a bolt and washer, the

nut cuts its own shape as it goes.
After gluing.the double open.tennons together I added two through dowels using the she oak as a contrast.

Final mock up of the head unit before I make the bench and vice section.

Pictured are the she oak tumblers and turned English holly pivot bushes rather than the floating bearing types, these seem to work the best so far but time will tell, she does
glides effortlessly up to now.
I created slots in the top section of the tumblers to enable the them to grip better, instead of pinning them through the bar like I was going to do and tightended things using a countersunks allen bolt and washer for added tension.

Here is a couple of shots of my second head unit, English oak side plates and a main body of high quality redwood from Norway.
The tumblers this time are made from aluminium stock bar and fitted with precision Olite oil retaining PB1 bushes.

I carefully clamped the tumblers together and line bored them in the pillar drill and engineers table vice for accuracy.

The side plates also have PB1 bushes fitted and the two tublers are spaced away from the side plates using two brass tube spacers, so when everything is fastened together each part secures the rest, this glides beautifully and tracks exactly square to the body.

Here are a couple of handy links to those venturing into the marquetry arena.

The new Lee Valley Chevalette looks remarkably like the much earlier Yannick from 1993 including the reversible jaws.

Check out Yannick’s antique chevalette.
