When I made my Wood pipes and wood scroll holder I made many circles with the hole saw. It took some time and I was forever holding the lever and applying pressure. That got me thinking,what if I could add a weight and let the lever do most of the work by itself!

The video shows a step by step how I made and use it. It worked out great but think it is
best for holes.

Neat idea Jack, I like your wooden vice jaws for cutting the threaded rod as well.

Another pragmatic idea! Seems like when I run into some type of trouble I first ask myself ‘How would Jack handle this problem?’. Really like your YouTube videos.

Oh, and it’s nice to have you over here at LJs. I’ve seen quite a number of your videos on Youtube by the way and enjoyed every one of them :)
