Here’s some of the working locks I made when I first got the scrollsaw. I needed the saw to cut out some of the small parts and springs used inside the lock body. There were 2 books written by Tim Detweiler. They were Making Working Wooden Locks and Making More Working Wooden Locks. The locks inthe books are quite large, typically 10” like the locks pictured in the same picture. I cut everything down to just below half size because I wanted my grandsons to be able to play with them without knocking themselves out. They’re grate for hand-eye co-ordination. The handcuffs were a project for a buddy who’s son was graduating from the police academy in California. I sent him the plans after cutting them out and making sure they worked, and he then did a fretcut of his son’s badge and hung the cuffs from it for a graduation gift.
