Nicely done, worked out well in the end

Thread: Double Spring Pole Lathe [Part 4]
31/01/2017 01:48:48

thanks, I am too. I'm glad of the opportunity to test it out the way I did, it meant that I was able to adjust my thinking regarding my own personal improvements to the design before going too far. I'm even considering at this point of not worrying about the springpoles themselves and just using the bungee hook straps since they worked so well during the test. It is a departure from my original intention, but I guess the folding upright support is also a major departure from the authenticity anyway, so why not!

Thread: Plant Pot from recycled wood
31/01/2017 01:46:12

Hello Derek, yes, it will eventually rot the wood, but this wood rots fairly slowly, and by the time that it is finally of no use the pine will need to be re-potted into something bigger anyway, so I'm not really worried about that. It's just been built to meet a temporary need, not a permanent one. In the meantime however, my wife and I are both enjoying seeing it, and in the few weeks that's it's been there the pine has certainly improved. I kind of see the pot itself as slow release fertiliser for the tree lol.

A few weeks ago I did some more work on my lathe, but I've only just got around to posting it due to work and study commitments. In this update I've finished the rocker arm mechanism, installed the foot peddle, and started on the headstock.

I spend an hour or so one afternoon making this plant pot. In the few weeks that have past since then my Norfolk Island Pine has been doing much better, so it must like it!

Beautiful work Derek!

Thread: Nice clock

Thanks Paul, I was wondering if it was a custom job. I've seen some tutorials on Instructables and other places for recycling old printers and scanners into CNC machines, was wondering if that's what you've done. If anyone else reads this who has built a CNC machine in this way I'd sure love to hear from you. I have three old printers ready waiting!

You made your own CNC machine, how?

Very nice, how did you do the coloring?

Thread: Nice clock

Wow, I've been dreaming of making a clock ever since seeing a basic one in the old Popular Mechanics Encyclopedia set Dad used to have. Would you mind sharing your experiences in making this?

Very nice

Thread: Need to replace switch on cutter
06/01/2017 10:35:28

Yes, I do agree with that advice. I am looking for a genuine switch, but just to have a backup plan!

I did by the way make a mistake, it's 7", not 7.5" lol

img_0014.jpgI have a Black & Decker 7.5" cutter, but it appears that the switch is busted. I could possible order a replacement, but since it is a simple on and off switch I think it might be easier just to bypass the original, hopefully remove it altogether, and just install a normal power switch into the power cable. My problem is that I don't understand the wiring configuration of this switch. Does anyone know how I might be able to do this?

I made this as a Christmas gift for my wife, she loves it!

Thread: Work table upgrade, a success, and a failure!
05/01/2017 05:41:26

I had decided to build a Christmas present for my wife, a jewellery cabinet, but I needed something better than my existing trestle table, so I upgraded it. The upgrade was definitely a success, but for some reasons it was also a failure.
