    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.

    Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

    Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
