It's not very pretty but it works. A few months ago, I bought the touch off tool on Amaxon. Finally, I got the other parts yesterday while me and the missus were ridein' around. From watching a few videos, it appeared all I needed was a resistor, an led and some soldering skills! UGH! I scratched around the shop and found a plastic box with some screws in it. They now have a new home. The puck came with wire and an alligator clip already installed so all I had to do was solder in the led and the resistor. Dang, it worked first try! See that pretty red light shining brightly. Before ruining a board, I will double/triple check the zero on the "z" axis. I measured the puck 9 different ways and seem to get some slightly different results so I will need to check it with a feeler gauge and possibly change the indicated thickness. By entering .758 in the "Z" Axis, it appeared to be at zero when I lowered the bit to the work piece. I will check it to make sure. Now I know this isn't an automatic tool, but it should help me get better results when changing bits during a project. I hope to try it out soon...maybe tomorrow after I check in on my mom.
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
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.
