  1. It’s the mileage not the age. I’m a one owner higher mileage dude.
  2. Actually, it is a mock chicken leg forming tool. They were made in the 30’s.
  3. Looks like it is in Lebanon which is north of Cincinnati. Yike, the 20% buyers fee scares me off.
  4. John, this saddens all of us. We all knew your dad through you. Your love and respect for him flowed from you. These days are difficult but take peace in the fact that dad is resting now. This is not goodbye but rather, “See ya later”. Our prayers are with you, brother.
  5. So very sorry John. May our Father wrap you in his arms.
  6. Ok, last post. I built 2 walnut and an oak. Here’s the oak case.
  7. I can honestly say that I’ve never used that fine adjustment. Easier to bump the fence with my hand.
  8. Not yet but I have replaced the brass lockdown device.
  9. So, the hardest part of these cases is the back. I rout a 1/4” x 1/4” groove and inset a 1/4” thick triangle to retain the flag. I keep the inset triangle in place with turn buttons. Cutting the triangle inset can be a challenge because it wants to slide on the saw top and there wasn’t a good way to secure it. I built a jig to clamp to my miter to hold it. MInhave a piece of double backed carpet tape on the jig and I get perfect cuts now.
  10. They don’t. They aren’t capable.
  11. Here are the joints after the glue up. I didn’t mention it before but I I cut a 1/4” x 1/4” recess on the back for the inset panel before glue up. I also cut a groove for the glass a shade over 18” and 3/4” from the front edge. After the glue up I open the groove up from the bottom with a 1/4” spiral up feed router bit. ,
