  • 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.

                              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.

                                This looks something like your saw? I bought it at lowes about January 2008. It was listed at $170 then, but mine was a demonstration model without the cardboard box, so I got it for $120. I recall they had a cheaper brand listed for $119, which was what I originally planned to buy. I don't recall...

                                Not quite carved, although I did go overboard a bit using my Dremel to smoothen the edges of the 'ropes'. Still they were cut out piece by piece, sanded/smoothed and glued into place....

                                While still trying to summon the courage to finish the final version of my Gotha bomber, I got sidetracked and stumbled upon some plans from two years ago: a giant four-engined brother to my earlier Fokker Trimotor... The ultimate 1930's dieselpunk engine.

                                THe plans were designed for 1/2...
