Toy gun with working trigger

01-14-2017 10:42 PM by ShaunMeighan | 0 comments »

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

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!

Shop storage projects #4: Dungeon Remodel, stage 1

01-05-2017 02:39 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well really two stages today….the main event was this afternoon. Then I went back down to do a wee bit more, as a stage 2….....didn’t quite work out. Leg was having issues towards the end. Sitting here with an ice pack on the leg, and a Norco pill in me. Anyway…here we go…. I removed the brace till from it’s perch, and placed the electric grinder in it’s place. I needed a couple other toys to move aside….and then try to remove the...

Shop storage projects #1: Overview

01-01-2017 09:30 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, not much for a picture today,maybe later on. Need to move and remove a few things in the shop. Can’t do a whole lot over by the Lathe bench. Too much other junk in place. However.. I can empty out, and clean up Tool Chest #1, and have it taken upstairs as a Hope Chest. I can remove a couple power tools from one spot, place them where the plane til is. Then place the power tools where the til used to be. I may have enough room to move the brace til over beside the pla...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #82: It's been a while!

12-27-2016 01:06 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

I hope everyone had a Festive Christmas, and I wish everyone a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! I didn’t realise quite how long I had been out of the game, until today. I seem to have spent all my time with Medical Specialists. I have had the operation on my right knee, and that is progressing nicely, at least I am no longer walking with a stick. Unfortunately the second spinal block, did not work on my back, so what happens next, I have no idea, and I am also waiting to see if th...

Musical Instruments #6: Marimba Getting ready for final tune

12-26-2016 03:51 PM by johnstoneb | 1 comment »

The keys and resonators are made and have a rough tune. It’s now time to get everything ready and do the final tune.We need to drill mount hole in the keys before we can tune, first we need to locate and install the suspension components. The glockenspiel taught me that location and spacing of the suspension is a critical step. Space the suspension to close and the keys rub against the suspension causing vibration noise and affecting the sound from the keys too far and there isn̵...

Musical Instruments #5: Marimba Resonators Time to build

12-24-2016 06:17 PM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

Time to start on the resonators. These are the pipes that hang below the keys and give the instrument its signature sound. The keys when struck sound like a musical note but they sound more like a piano than a marimba.I went with as thin wall PVC pipe as I could get locally. I believe for the 2” it was about 140psi and the 1 1/2” about 160psi. The plans give the length to cut as I cut them i wrote the note inside the tube to keep them straight. Once they were all cut glued th...

Musical Instruments #4: Marimba Tune Time

12-23-2016 11:45 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

I have all Christmas presents ready and time to work on the Marimba again.When I left last I had moved the lower keyboard over an 1 1/2 for clearance. After final tune and drilling the keys I didn’t like the gap so I moved everything back an 1 1/4. It looks way better. I applied one coat of lacquer. The old adjustment The final. Keys are closer to the upper frame and just looks better. I need to quit over thinking these things. Time to rough tune the keys. the keys were ...

Tongue Drum #1: Tongue Drum Help

12-07-2016 01:07 AM by Raymus | 0 comments »

I am in the process of making my first tongue drum. Got the Poplar box and Red Oak tone board made, needs lot of work still, and a bottom yet. But the 3/4” red oak tone board doesn’t make much sound and three of the 12 keys sound dead. Don’t understand what’s happening? It doesn’t rattle or buzz, just thump, no tone, well, not a pleasant one anyway. Sure could use some insight or help figuring out what’s happened? It’s funny, the two keys along one...
