I love the compass Herm.  Always wanted to make something like that but never got around to it.  I've made "one time only" compasses by drilling a hole in a narrow board to hold the pencil and located a screw  at the proper radius to provide the centering point. I'm sure your club members will cherish them. Great design and craftsmanship :)

Those are heirlooms indeed Herb! Simply amazing. You come up with the most useful, thoughtful and creative gifts for the members each year...

 

So, now a jillion questions for simple un-creative minds like mine...

(1) First & foremost...you did sign all of these, right?

(2) Where did you purchase the brass stock? width & thickness?

(3) What method did you use to adhere to the beam? Superglue? Expoxy? 

(4) Where did you purchase the brass screws for the pencil lock & beam head?

(5) Assume the pivot pin is a brass trim nail cut to length? Local source for it?

 

Alas probably would do me no good to possess one...I'd just lose the pencil and well, since it's attached to the beam arm all would disappear.:P

How do I join this club?   Very nice.

 

 

I always look in the background of people's photos for ideas.   I see a Zyliss vice -- do you use it often?  Someone gave me one and I sort of always forget I have it somewhere under the work bench.

Kieth ,I bought my first one in 1969 at the county fair, and had it in my tool box  to use for years clamped to a saw horse. Then at home clamped to my work bench. I lost it in the fire, so bought another  one for this shop. I use it it constantly more than my bench vise because it sets up higher and I can do so many things with it I can't do with the bench vise. Also can be removed when I want the space for flat work.

I can clamp things any length, I clamped a set of cabinets 20' long once on the job by attaching it to a 24' 2X4.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
