Shopmade Luthier Tools #16: A few hole clamps

01-23-2017 02:06 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I made these in anticipation of someday being tasked to repair cracks in violins. I made them from a, (or a few) Pend-A-flex hanger frames (one is shown above framing the three clamps.) The U-shaped part is threaded on both ends, while the straight bar has a threadable through hole in each end. I simply bent the frames into a C shape as small as possible on my machinists vise and fit either a 1/4 inch bolt or a #10 bolt in an appropriate hole. The smallest of the three I had to flatted th...

Shop storage projects #13: Case work....

01-23-2017 01:25 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, I got all the frames done. Was stacking them up to get them out of the way…..and found a couple without the predrilled mounting holes done….PITA to do when everything is glued up. Got the first side up on the bench, and started attaching web-frames, using a framing square to keep things lined up.. Soon enough, had all the frames installed.. Then the fun part, I needed to get this mess OFF my bench, the second side ON my bench, and then the first side set on top. ...

Shop storage projects #12: Web-Frames, part 1

01-20-2017 02:51 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Mainly setting up jigs and stops..and more jigs. Had a lot of parts to make, and half of them had to look like this, on one end. The trick was how to get them all done…quickly.. This is what I needed to make…times 24. I had 12 short rails that needed a tenon on both ends. This one was done the old, slow way. Needed something a little bit faster, and..have them all match each other. I used the “prototype” to help set a couple stops on the mitre box.. mainly...

Shop storage projects #11: Dresser build: side #2 is done..

01-19-2017 04:35 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Plus a few other chores were started. Corner posts were hit with the stanley 45’s sash cutter.. First I needed to joint and edge, and flatten the sawn face. Then run the sash cutter a bit. Then some lay-out work I transferred rail locations from side #1 to these posts, I also found the angle to cut the bottom foot detail.. One was a hair off, took care of that later, time for a LOT of chisel work.. tools used, amongst of things. Square, a mallet, and a bandaid..Got...

Shop storage projects #9: The dresser build, side #2 is started...

01-16-2017 04:42 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

After a few other items were taken care of. Got an early wake up call this morning. Seems one of the Shop Cats caught a small Black Bat. She even brought it upstairs to show off her catch….squeaking all the time….of course, the bat got away from her. Finally trapped the little critter under a broom. And with the help of the dust pan to hold the critter, I did a Catch & Release, right out the back door of the house. Last seen, the bat was flying west, as fast as it...

Shop storage projects #8: Dresser build, side 1 is complete,almost

01-15-2017 01:18 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well spent one hour getting some things caught up….the second corner post was jack planed to remove all the saw marks, and the a Stanely#7c was run around a while..Until it was all flat and smooth. Clamped the new post to the old post, to do a bit of lay out work.. So I could transfer the dados’ locations better While I was down in the shop, and laying out parts.. I tried out the “new” bandsaw jig. Been having troubles doing resaws, so figured this could ...

Toy gun with working trigger

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

Shop storage projects #7: Working on the rails....

01-12-2017 11:40 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, last night, I snuck back to the shop…did a bit of chisel work. But wasn’t happy with the results.. And decided to “daylight” the mortise into a dado. I kept the waste piece, added some glue, and a clamp, and let it sit all night.. Then today, I removed the clamp, and worked on a few more dados. Nothing fancy to them, just a lot of chisel work.. laid out to match the tenon that will go here. Last night I had #4 and #3 done. This is for #2. Wide ch...

The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!
