Handplanes #2: Cap Iron, and Lever Cap Positioning

08-19-2009 08:04 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Hi, I’ve seen these questions raised on several threads, and for many years didn’t know the answer to these myself. I just stumbled upon the “answers” which reminded me of the questions, so I figured I’d post it here for anyone that might be able to use it. I stumbled upon these on Lee-Valley website which is a golden fountain of knowledge if you know how to find it (some of their articles and tips are not visible, nor easy to come upon unless you stumble upon...

When I started woodworking I have three aims. achieve make beautiful boxes in wood and with mechanisms.This is because when I was a kid I loved them.My grandma had a box that my uncle made, and I never tired of playing with it. Now, my grandma and uncle had passed away, this box belongs to one of my cousins (I have 42) This is the box that started it all You can notice that this is a two parts box. The upper side has a mechanism to open the lid (that will be another entry of this blog),...

Wooden Mechanism for Book Box

06-01-2010 02:07 PM by Triumph1 | 8 comments »

After posting the pictures of The Rising I was asked by a couple LJ’s to post more information on the mechanism I designed to lift the book. Since I do not have the box anymore I took some screen shots from the 3D modeling software I use for initial designs (SolidWorks if anybody is interested. It is the program I use at work). Below I show the mechanism in its lowered position. Here it is half way through its motion. And here it is at the top of its motion. I think t...

Box of Chocolates Mechanism

06-01-2010 07:42 PM by Triumph1 | 8 comments »

I know this is a little past its time but I found this video I had made when I was designing the lifting mechanism for Box of Chocolates. In the video I am just using my finger to slide the bottom cam plate. On the box that would be done by grabbing the handle under the box and pulling it towards you. Also, the cans of paint are sitting on the dowel lifting plate. i just don’t have the dowels glued into it yet. Hopefully this helps everybody understand the mechanism better. Well...

Micro-Adjustment Mechanism #2: Improved alignment of the threaded rods

11-06-2012 03:21 PM by DaveFFMedic | 6 comments »

After sharing my micro-adjustment mechanism with my dad and discussing its shortcomings, he suggested epoxying the two threaded rods together to achieve better alignment. So I gave it a try. I began by creating an alignment jig using two V-blocks and some rubber bands. I notched out the V shape in the end of a piece of scrap MDF on the table saw. Next I drew a few lines on a scrap piece of pine and predrilled some holes in the bottom. To ensure the two V-blocks are lined up, I clampe...

As I tell you...
