  • Finished Handcuffs

    here is the handcuffs from Pop's pattern....
    they are cut out of 1/4 oak...

    the pattern was right on the mark and very easy to cut...
    this might be top secret...but the hardest part was trying to get the spring the right length so it wouldn't bind up...

    Thanks again Pop's for the time you put into making this pattern.

          I love them too, and I do hope he strikes a deal to get them in the magazine! Its a great project. I am curious Trout on grain direction. Any reason you chose the direction you did for the smaller half? Dale

            I hope he really enjoys them as much as I did working on the pattern for you. They do look great! The spring I used was actually smaller then the 1/4" wood locking pin and surrounding framing so I didn't have too much trouble with it. I'm glad you chose the round links too. It makes a world of difference.

                  Excellent craftsmanship there Trout.
                  Pop look forward to seeing more or your projects. Let us know then the pattern is ready for sale. I am a retired LEO and have 3 brothers still on the job. They would make great gifts.

                        Amazing! I'm another one who'd love to have the pattern for those.

                          Trout, Pop, excellent collaberation, well done. I'm another one who'd like to try my "hand" at the "cuffs".

                              Very cool Pops,
                              I'm really interested in a pattern myself. I have a good friend who's a guard at a prison and I know he'd love them. He's hard to buy for and I know this would be something no one else would be getting him. Looking forward to seeing the pattern published in the magazine.

                                My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                                Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
