    Making a .30-06 Pen

    When making the .30-06 pen with the Zebra F-301 pen I start by taking the pen apart and removing the stainless tube. Take the pen apart and remove the tube with the logo on it. There is a detent on the tube so a half twist before pulling works best. I use a small pair of end nippers to grab the tube. I slide them into the hole the open pliers make and they clamp around the tube just enough to get it off. The lower ribbed part has to have 3.5 ribs turned down to fit into the shell where the bullet was. This makes the length right and the nib protrudes the correct distance when the clicker is pushed.  Mount the drill chuck and hold the ribbed section in it while the ribs are turned off. The Easy Wood Tools Ci1 square cutter works wonders for this. Next pull the clicker piece from the top of the pen. Mount a 9/64 drill bit in the drill chuck backwards and push the clicker onto it. It is a loose fit and needs pressure from the tailstock to turn it without it spinning on the bit. I have a Oneway live center and found a pencil fits into it with the center tip removed. I put enough wraps of some plastic tape on it to keep it out a small distance and turn the clicker until the chrome is sanded off to the brass underlay. I start with 220 grit and sand through 400 grit and then polish with 0000 steel wool. Be careful not to get the piece too hot as the plastic will melt. For the pen nib I took a plastic dowel I had and turned the end until it fit inside the threads and used a pointed live center to hold it in place while sanding the same way as described above. A 5/16 wood dowel can be used as well. The end of the dowel should be perfectly flat. For the .30-06 shell I remove the primer and mount it in the chuck and take the letter "O" size drill to drill through the end. To mount it for sanding I took a 5/16 bolt that was long enough to have a shoulder above the threads and cut the head off. I took a nut and ran it up to the shoulder and tightened it with a wrench so the shell wouldn't slide between the nut and bolt threads. Might want to do that before cutting the head off so it is there to hold onto. Now it is time to put the pen together and write all the love letters you been meaning to write to your significant other. I took one of the pens and made a stick pen and holder. I ran a drill bit through the bullet end of a shell to get the crimp section straight and turned the rib section as described above until it was a press fit into the shell. Put it together and found the ink cartridge was too short. I found a nail that was a tight fit into the cartridge after removing the plug and pushed it in until the right length was achieved. I DID NOT remove the primer for this one. And there you have it. No rocket science involved and a nice pen has evolved. I've already made over 80 of them. Everyone loves them. Enjoy

    Miter trimmer sharpening

    Some of us have miter trimmer knives and sharpening the knives accurately can be a chore... I saw this iron sharpening jig elsewhere.. add drawer casters to it and adapt to hold the trimmer blades/irons and I believe you have solved an issue.. to add the caster.. ''wheel well'' for the caster wheels w/o the bracket and drift pin the wheels into place... twin keyhole/T slot the jig's face to make for adjustablity...

    Make a wheel

    In making my lift for the router I need a wheel that turns a small Lab scissor lift. How would I manufacture a wheel say like the Delta one pictured or something with some holes in it? Tools available are a lathe, bandsaw okay just about any tool but the skillset may be lacking with the lathe.

    Sharpening question

    I know there are 2 different type of bench grinders. High speed and low speed. Plus jigs to get the correct angles. Are you able to sharpen on a high speed bench grinder too?

  9. Web-frames. What I use in a case to let drawers slide in and out. Made long before those new-fangled metal thingys ever came along. last episode, I had all the parts cut to length, to make 6 frames. Today? Well first a "prototype" was sawn out.. Yeah, a tenon. The problem today was how to make about 24 of these tenons, without a lot of time being used up. Hmmm, I have that Mitre Box, and it has depth stops I can adjust.. Right there, under the guide, is a brass collar. Loosen the set screw, and slide up until you reach the depth you want to stop at. Did both the front one, and the one in the back. I used the prototype under the saw blade, to set the depth. while the prototype was sitting there, I screwed a stop block to the deck. so, I could do the other 23 tenons' shoulder cuts, and wear out my elbow, at the same time. Slide up to the block, cut until the saw no longer cuts, flip to do the other side, flip again to do the other end. Next, needed a way to cut the cheeks of the tenons...re-saw jig on the bandsaw was slid around a bit.. I pushed each side through, until the waste just fell over, rotate or flips as needed...soon had 48 of these little scraps laying around. As for the tenons? 24 tenons were soon done( the other ends look just like these) Next, I needed another jig. Had to go and dig it out...and then "up-date " it.... The side pieces were too tall, made new, lower ones. Spacing was too wide...ok, I clamped a part and the two new sides together in the vise Drilled a few new holes for screws, and screwed the base in place. Need this attached to the bench top, right over a leg.. With a few screws. Now, I can use a pair of Visegrips finger clamps to hold a rail, while I abuse it for a bit. Chose a tenon to use for the layouts. Used a backsaw to make a couple cuts.. Sawn at an angle, so as not to overcut too much, Have another way to dig out the waste.. The mortise chisel chops down at the back, then I can just pop the waste out. The wide chisel to fine tune things as needed.. Plan was to fit each tenon to it's new home. I also marked on all the parts, which part goes where. After a few chops, I could check for square.. Let's see, that be 4 tenons fitted in place, a lot of flipping going on here. I also cut some old, nasty pine into a kicker.. A kicker is to keep a drawer fromtipping down, when you pull the drawer out a bit. While the M & T joints will get glue and nails later, the kickers will get a screw on each end, and a spot of glue. So, shop time started at 1130 hrs, and ended at 1500 hours....what did I get done? Three frames are ready to be assembled with glue, nails, and screws. First, I had to get these off the washer, before the Boss sees them. Will try to get the rest of these done, so I can clear the bench and do a lot of assembly work. Been a long afternoon...stay tuned..

    The K.I.S.S. Jig

    That to thr GrandBRATS being here and wanting to go places.....work on the Cherry Box has ground to a halt...almost. Needed to give the brain a rest for a day or two, anyway.... Jig? Well, I needed a way to plough a groove into the frame's skinny and thin parts. Hard to hold onto them AND the Stanley #45......router table? Nah, I'd have to dig it out, set it up and listen to it scream....not. Laid down a scrap of pine. Two screws, countersunk to fix it in place on the bench. Some small brads to add a couple little piece to make a square corner. Used one of the frame's parts to make sure I had clearence along the outside edge... Something like this. The screw sticking up "in the way"? Well, it helps hold things in place... I think I can run a plane along the edge to dress it up a bit. All set up for the short ends. Then I can move the screw a bit, and set up for the longer sides. Should be able to run the 45 along the edge a few times. Not talking a lot of plane effort needed to plough these grooves, Maybe 3-4 swipes per piece. I have to double check to make sure I am grooving the TOP of each piece. When I get back to the shop, we'll see how this goes. Jig is a one time use thing. I will need to build a different one when I am working on the lid's panel. Might take as long to plough four grooves as it did to make the jig. Not that I'm cheap, or anything.....I intend to re-use the jig's parts for the panel work...

    From the album: Turning Jigs

    This here is the start of my idea to make a paper pot plant maker. Using a piece of apple for the base and a piece of maple for the cup. Thanks for the idea Lew.
  12. John Moody and I were talking today about dovetail jigs. We both have the Peachtree version and the discussion got around to replacement bits and it looks like the Amana bit for the Keller system is identical to the Peachtree bit. I heard that Keller's patent ran out and Peachtree copied it. Any input on this? Anyone have a Keller system?

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.
