2012 Foot Powered Grinding Wheel #1: Concept, Design

02-09-2012 07:22 PM by Will Mego | 3 comments »

So one of the other projects I wish to accomplish this year (towards spring/summer) is a foot powered grinding wheel. gives you a vague idea of what I’m going after. The image, btw is from http://autonopedia.org/crafts_and_technology/Wood/Wood_Harvesting_with_Hand_Tools.html which might be of some interest to others. So the main choice facing me is natural stone, either harvested around me or from a stone yard, or to make a wheel using concrete/abrasive sands, several recipes ...

WWND- What would Niki do? #2: Mitered foot jig for small boxes

07-08-2007 08:25 AM by Douglas Bordner | 4 comments »

I laid out the edge opposite the chamfer with an approximate 30° taper, each foot section about three inches long. Having cut each...
