Shop projects

So there’s already a thread for woodwork projects
http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,49361.0.html

I thought we should have a thread for other projects
Anything interesting you have made in your workshop  :tu:

Let’s not have any “health and safety”  whining If you don’t know how to do it safely there’s plenty of health an safety advice out there on the net or ask an adult for help
So don’t come running to me if you cut anything off or boil your own head in the microwave  ::)

So I wanted a chop saw, I’ve seen some made from 4” disc cutters on you-tube,
All you need is a hinge and some kind of spring  :think:  :think: wonder if I can find a big hinge combined with a spring then it would be easy....

 ;) Door closer
 


Bend this bit to 90



Screw it to a square of ply, add a bit of ally and mount the cutter using the second handle hole  :)

That works  :D

Slick little setup! :tu:
I miss my little shop(a shed) I didn't have much room so I made a all in one table, only took up 4'x2', but it was a router, a jigsaw, and a table saw, which was a circular saw mounted to a 11"x12" piece of wood that dropped in place, just like the router and jig, I also had a drill press that was a simple drill mounted to a system that sat on top. I do have a pic but it's just me cutting a large she of ply so I don't think you see much. Sorry..

Many years ago I worked with a Guy that used a lot of spray paint in rattle cans (no not Banksy   :P )
We made a ‘shaker’ from an old motor/gearbox, he would load it up in the morning, it rotated very slowly and be ready when he needed them
He would do a little spraying and put them back in the stirrer

Broken microwaves are full of useful stuff, (see opening paragraph)
The power lead on mine had crimp connectors that fit the little turntable motor  :o  :D
mine turns at 4rpm so its no good if you don't have half an hour of prep work first

Take a book end, add a piece of PVC pipe and....




 
Might save someone a little wrist action  :shrug:

Here's something I've just knocked together, an attempt at making my version of snowshoes. :D  No idea if they'll work but as they basically cost me about £3 I thought it was worth a shot.  All I need now is some deep snow to test them in.

Cheers mate.:cheers:  I'll probably get a chance to test them next month on one of my overnight hiking trips.  If they don't work then they might just end up as fuel for the fire. :D

Where did you find the hardware for them? 
not the sort of thing you can pick up at your local shoe shop  :think:

I was wondering that myself.  This straps look like they are worth more than three quid.

All made from bits and pieces I had kicking around.  None of it was ever intended to be used to attach a boot to a plank. :D

Actually it was the wood that I spent the £3 on. :P

The basic shape you created is amazingly reminiscent of water skis.  If they don't work as snow shoes you might try them out on the nearest lake, but you'll need a friend with a boat.
