  • 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 .

      There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

                      The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                      Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
