Hello! I just wanted to share this great project with everybody. I don’t quite remember where I saw this but I remember the concept and well here it is.
first the list of materials:
1/2 copper tube 6 inch long ( I got it at lowes for $6 / 20 inch tube) and I had the guy cut for me.
3/8×1/2 router collet or fitter or reducer (depends on who you ask)
two 3/8 bearings.
wood for the handle.
first turn the handle with a dowel (1/2) try to make it so it is snug.
then assembly the main part of the tool. like this.
The small wood dowel on the bottom is to support the cutting bit so it won’t sink inside the tool.
the tool should look something like this: (sorry for the bad pic)
just slip the tube in the dowel and you are done!
I hope I did a good job explaining the parts and process. please let me know if you have any questions!
