The_Samples.jpg
The_Samples.jpgThe Working Ends117 viewsSix examples made up using the supplier's standard whisk broom and cake tester designs, with corn straw packed per my request. The supplier is wondering whether buyers would want the somewhat decorative wrapping, as losing it might knock of a dollar or two in price. I say keep it, as it is comfortable in use.Charlie Driggs

handscrew_sawscrew_remover.jpghandscrew clamp modified for sawnuts319 viewsThis works for nearly all sawscrews, and significantly reduces the risk of breaking off medallion screws. Drill a hole in one side of the clamp that is large enough to go around the saw nut -- and allow a screwdriver in to either loosen or tighten. I used a 9/16" Jennings bit on this one, and that works for all but the largest saw nuts.Charlie Driggs

IMG_2799.JPGGalootaclaus 2016 27 views11 items, two for chunks of Bodark and Mesquite from Texas, two for chisels needing a boatload of care, a bit holder also needing some help, a box of #7 slotted flat heads from Sweden of all places, dual sheave blocks, a mystery #593 Stanley hammer without faces, a NIB set of 6 Greenlee Irwin style bits, some acid brushes, and a tubular thing that apparently grows that way - never saw anything like this before, but I'm guessing that grew in Texas too. Quite an assortment.Charlie Driggs

IMG_2083.jpgCloseup of the "introduction" to Issue #1 Mortise & Tenon31 viewsWhy, it's even written in 18th century English! Remember that "f's" are often "s's" ..Charlie DriggsFeb 27, 2016

IMG_0715.JPGMoxon vise 38 viewsThis is build to drop into the dog holes along the east edge of the bench. With a 20" opening between the screws and a 6" capacity, it can handle most all drawer boxes I would likely work on as well as any dovetail joints.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016

IMG_5122.JPGsouth end of workbench35 viewsthe upper end of the two leg vises are visible in this shot. The advantage of being able to work from any side of this bench is particularly usable when making up panels for furniture, as being done in this shot.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016

IMG_6685.JPGdetail of the older leg vise screw mount32 viewsThis may look a bit rough to some, but it is definitely a cleaner installation than the way it was mounted on my grandfather's 80, 90 or more years main bench. This one works quite wel. With two leg vises on the south end mounted 'in plane', it is quite easy to hold short sections (3-5 ft) of lumber for sawing to a line, although the height isn't ideal. Also very useful for holding items when needing to run round tenons with one of the hollow augers.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016

IMG_1740.JPGbench -- looking from north to south, with general purpose bench35 viewsthe GP bench is on the right (grinders, etc); the neanderbuddy and occasionally used contractor size saw are both on rolling bases, which helps a great deal in this tight shop.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016

IMG_0799.JPGhold down storage along the west side of the bench35 viewsThe stretchers were a major stiffener of this bench, as until these were added it would rack a bit when planing large boards. Adding them created storage for items otherwise awkward to fit close at hand.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
