  • Another lock from PoP..

    Thought I'd do a different lock this time. A bicycle lock works different from other padlocks where as it's shackle is totally removeable from the lock body. So I thought ...why not try to make one of those this time. Body and shackle are maple and walnut. Shackle is a piece of 3/4 x 3-1/2 x 7-1/2" maple that I cut out and rounded on my router table (scary). Each section (5 total) of the lock body contains a part of the locking mechanism. The shackle can be inserted any way and still locks (not from the bottom of course). I off-set the notches in the shackle legs so it locks in more positions. Everything is wood including the lock tabs inside the body.

      Very clever .

                      Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                      So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                      Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                      Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.
