Just some photos of the main build:
hi all ; new tool! The Idea for this I have thanks to St Thomas’ Guild (http://thomasguild.blogspot.nl/) I got this idea from their blog a long time ago and I have had this in the back burner of my mind for awhile, and it stayed there until I needed it. So, i’m going to an event called Noisemakers in two weeks and need more tuning pegs. I used to buy good cheep ebony tuners for $0.25 each, now they are $3.60 each.So whittling!whittling tuning pegs is not exactly a “safe...
Another Lumberjocker asked for plans for my One-Handed Clamp (Picture #1). So far as I know this type of specialty clamp was originally devised for building lapstrake boats. In lapstrake boats the laps are clamped together for riveting which requires reaching across the full width of the new plank with the clamp. But this clamp also comes in handy at times for other deep-reaching, and/or one-handed clamping needs. I decided to publish a copy of my patterns here for anyone who needs them. ...
Below 20 pictures from making a jig. This jig is used on a router table to make notches in tractor wheels, but it’s also possible to use it on circle saw. You can’t see it on the the pictures but this jig glides between two guides. Thanks for watching
http://www.wackywoodworks.co.nz/blastgate.php While this a full PVC blast gate it can be made in the average woodworkers woodshop with ease. But because of this I have simply made a blog post and not a project post etc In the video I am making a PVC blast gate for my home dust extractor system. You can treat PVC like wood, and can cut it on the Table saw, mitre saw, band saw, use the sanding wheels etc. On the thicker pipe we use jigsaws However on the table saw and mitre saw cut slowly...
If you’ve ever gazed longingly at Benchcrafted's Moxon vise hardware kit for $149.00, get a load of this, Grizzly sells really nice cast iron hand wheels for as little as $10.95. You can get some threaded rod at the hardware store for very little, add a couple of nuts and bolts, and you’re there for a lot less money. If you want to get the Acme threaded rod, you can get a 3 foot length of 3/4” here for $16.95 ADDENDUM: Well there seems to be a serious “go...
A question I think we all should ask ourselves! https://merzkecustomwoodworking.com/2015/03/23/what-defines-you/
Finally got some pictures taken of the cutting process so here is the promised blog .This is the is the cutter I use ( CMT box joint cutter set ) This is the sliding jig riding on the fence cheek ,glued and screwed together and nice and square to the fence with no play which is very imported.The cutter installed and tilted to 45 DEG. and a insert just for this cutting operation.Notice the pencil mark on the insert which indicates the setting of the fence for the first cut. The indexing...
This time I used transparent epoxy glue for glueing the small dowels from 2,3 and 4 mm. Below the fixturing with tape on a flat surface. The glue is unilaterally applied. After two hours…............. Sanding wasn’t a problem. And I hope also varnishing does not give problems Thanks to all who came up with ideas, in particular Mike who came with the idea of fixturing with tape on a flat surface.
Hello all! Let me begin by saying that this is not an original idea, many have done this before…this is just my attempt of it that I have been tossing around in my head for quite a long time now… I’ve researched online, and I was looking for a way to do this without a forge involved…my friend has one, but I believe that I can shape the knives without losing the temper if I’m careful not to let the metal get too hot. I started with some vintage files/rasps ...
