Yeah, I was thinking of that conversation from yesterday about how you cut better with a marples pull saw than your better saw.

Hi Dave. He is a clever fellow indeed and I admire his resourcefulness, but his methods are obviously the result of a limited range of tools and he isn’t necessarily doing things the best way. He should be a great inspiration to others in his shoes. I couldn’t help being very impressed with his ball jig.

Where there’s a will there’s a way. You and I, SuperD, havehad this conversation several times about how someone with the desire to make something can do so without having the latest and greatest tools. Sometimes you just have to work with what you’ve got.
Well, it seems this guy has taken that idea to an extreme. He seems have a passion for it. After spending about an hour watching some of his other videos, he also seems to have a limited amount of tools to work with. It hasn’t stopped him though. I’d love to shake his hand. I’m impressed.
Thanks for the links. I don’t go on YouTube enough to find this stuff without people providing links to this sort of thing.

Oh, man, does this guy scare me. The jigs he uses to make wooden bolts and nuts… shudder. I want to make wooden nuts and bolts for an upcoming project but I think I’ll try to find a safer way to jig these.

The ball jig wouldn’t be so bad if he had spent the time to make better handles instead of working with his finger sooo close to the collet of the router.

The whole time I was watching the video about the bolt thread, I was noticing how close his hand was to the bit and was thinking, if that bit only caught a small knot or something, he was $C@#$#@.
I wonder how many times he’s done that though? I could see in the video that he still had ten fingers. I wonder about toes.

I’ve watched tons of his videos before. He’s very impressive with his amount of creativity. I have made about 10 wooden balls with the router technique. It’s actually not that scary.

Thanks William and Pick, once again safety. But I will try some of his processes but with a little more space between me and the spinning thingie.

I’m surprised he still has all his fingers. I admire his ingenuity, but some of it is an accident waiting to happen.

I’ve always said Po boy’s have Po ways. Knowing what and how you can do things with what you have to work with can achieve a lot of results. Although I think if he learned the word SAFETY he’d come up with a whole lot more ways to do some more cool stuff.
