  • No more lock troubles thanks to forum family!

    I took all my new found lock knowledge out to the shop with me tonight and was able to produce this:


    It does work!! I just kept working with the springs until I had one that fit good and held the shackle firmly. I should have taken a picture of the inside, but was so excited I got it that I put it together. Of course I don't have the finish on it yet and it's just "pinned" together for now. Just excited to show you that I did it.... thanks to all of you!!! This place is the greatest!! Thanks so much!!!

                Celtic knot-shamrock cross
                by Ennobee
                My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                Hi Jim.
                glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
                by jim_mex
                I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
