In this case, no details have been provided but for what you see, as nobody knows what the heck this is. Perhaps one of you have just happened on one in grand dad's shop, farm or factory, and you may actually know "What's It!" Remember, "What's It" is not always woodworking related!

Community news A CNC shortcut has been placed at the forum links pane above. Sorry it took so long! Community upgrades are on the way, again. I know, seems like we are always upgrading, but we are staying ahead of the tech curve and we are staying ahead of the bad guys and spammers. We'll let you know when the upgrade is going to happen, and when our community will be down for maintenance. We will close our community for a short while, and we'll perform the upgrade late at night. The CNC Forums are roaring along fine, thank you CNC people! Soon, in the near future, we'll be announcing a new project we'll be embarking on, it will involve helping a veteran acquire the supplies and machinery for their shop. Our sponsors will be involved, so will you! Stay tuned! Featured gallery Welcome our new members The following members need a hearty welcome from ya'll!

Remember, the first accurate answer wins a one year membership to the awesome organization MWTCA!

The spikes on this item are around 5" in length. There are two mounting holes on the frame, and the part holding the spikes can freely rotate on the threaded shaft. Turning the handle raises and lowers the spikes, which can all pivot outwards.
  6. Well Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers! What happened in your shops over the weekend? What did you make, how did you make it, and what new techniques did you discover, or what old techniques have you perfected? Please share your weekend stories here! For me, my son and I spent the weekend in the shop and built a chair jig, the chair jig is used to drill the holes at the correct angles of the chair posts for the side rungs to be inserted into. Here is our chair jig. This jig sits on the Drill Press table with the chair ladder back assembly laying across it, and then the holes can be drilled in the rear posts. I also launched into tool building mode by building an ash mallet. You can see the pictorial essay here at My Big Ash Mallet Downloads I also uploaded a new (old) fun plan for you all over the weekend. It's a Bronc busting teeter-totter. You can download that plan at Bronco Teeter-Totter. It's a great project for the kids in your life. Wiki I am still working on templates for our wiki guests to use as they create their research projects on the many facets of woodworking. We also need your help, please see Machinery Categories, and Hand Tools Categories for your input and suggestions, we could sure use your wisdom and knowledge! Books If you are interested in tool making and diving into being a plane maker, I found a wonderful book that I ordered last night from David Finck, Making and Mastering Wood Planes. I am interested in plane making, after making my Ash Mallet, the satisfaction of making my own tools has grown in me over the weekend and I am excited to get my new book in the mail soon. Homes for Troops Fundraiser And please do not forget to donate to Homes for Our Troops for your chance to win some fantastic, high dollar tools donated by our sponsors for this project. You can see the details at Homes For Our Troops Fundraiser. Donate as little as 2 dollars for your chance to win! So that is it folks, how about you all, what's on your plate for the week ahead, and what did you do over the weekend past!
  7. Good Monday Morning folks! We hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a safe one as well! I was in the shop part of Saturday building a couple jigs for some up coming chairs I am making. The one main jig is called a Side Rung Mortising Jig for the back and front seat posts to accept the side rungs of the post and rung chairs at the correct angles. Here is a picture of the jig being used by the author of the book I am using as a guide called "Chair Making Simplified" by Kerry Pierce. We also want to know in this topic, what did you all get done over the weekend! In life and in the wood shop, share your time with us here, and post some images of your work, or your travels! Charles Nichols Site Host Charles is still in the hospital and recovering from his surgeries, he has been plagued by issues for years and we all pray and hold him in our thoughts. He is not making it here too often these days but he is communicating with friends and family via Facebook, if you'd like to leave a message of good thoughts you can do that at his original post at Hospital Round Two or at his Facebook Page. Our Wiki The Patriot Woodwiki is shaping up, I am working on some templates that are pre-filled out for research page starters for each category. Our members and guests only need to enter the title of the research page they want to create, then click on the ready made template with headers and directions for creating a great wiki page, and that template will populate their article, and then they can manipulate the article as they see fit. We also installed a wonderful interactive map for our wiki at Geolocated Wiki Pages. You can click on a red icon and see the link to the related wiki page. The red marker is placed in a specific location according to the wiki page content. If the page is about a person, the red marker will be in either the location they were born, or the location they died. If the wiki article is about a college for example the red marker will be in the location of the college. If you go to the map, see the red marker in Northern California, and click on the red marker to see a link to "College of the Redwoods". Our Member Map Our Member map has a new default look to it, you can see the satellite imagery of our world at Member Map. You can still view the world with borders, countries, and streets, but the new default imagery just makes it fun. MWTCA We also have a new MWTCA "What's It" for the month of July, check it out and try your hand at historical research into these fascinating old tools and implements, and win yourself a membership to the MWTCA while your at it! I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and be well, and be safe!

  12. This 4th of July has a bit of a different feel after spending some time recently in Williamsburg, Va. It was quite special to sit in the chambers where the House of Burgesses met. Knowing that in one of those seats, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and others made some of the decisions that formed our Nation. To walk the streets of Williamsburg and listen to Jefferson tell you what was going on and about to happen in 1776. After listening to this person in character for a while I almost felt as if I were transported back to 1776 and hearing all of this explained as it was happening. It gave me a different look at our government and the interpretation that we seem to see today. When Thomas Jefferson explained what he was writing into the Declaration I realized how far off track it has become today. Before the end of the day, standing at the gate of the Capital was Patrick Henry reading to the citizens of Williamsburg the entire Declaration of Independence. Wow for the first time it actually came to life for me. I hope you take time to enjoy the 4th and celebrate the Freedom that those men and women fought to give us. The pledge their life and their own fortunes and their sacred Honor to make Independence Day a holiday for us. For them is was a beginning that would be long and hard and many would not see or enjoy the Freedom they dreamed of. Yes all men are created equal and endowed by the Creator unalienable rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happenings. But those rights didn't come free or cheap. May we never forget from that day till today those that have given it all to make Freedom available to us all and may we never take it for granted. The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
  13. On behalf of all the folks at The Patriot Woodworker Woodworking Community, we'd like to wish our members, guests and supporters a wonderful and safe 4th of July weekend! As we fire up our barbecues and enjoy our friends and family on this very special holiday, please let us not forget those men and women who have paid the ultimate price during the struggles and protections of the very freedoms we take for granted each and every day. From the beginning, as George Washington crossed the Delaware, to our current struggles with terrorism and radicalism, our men and women have stepped up for us, so that we may have the life we have today. May God Bless our great nation, and may HE always have a special place in His Kingdom for those who have paid the ultimate price while serving their fellow countrymen. Thank you again for your support of our woodworking community, we hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!
