  • And Then There Were Three

    I finished the third Clayton Boyer "Bot" today. This is "Theo's Walking Bot". Building these was a very fun project. I had a hard time stepping away once I got started. Going to miss working on them, but, it gave me the confidence to try a wooden gear clock. I will be starting that soon. Darn Spring, I really need to get outside, but can't get past the shop..

    Funny mechanisms. True, there is still a lot of work for the engineer. Ragged rhythm of movement looks unnatural. Probably choosing a gear with a variable gear ratio could make the foot work more smoother. But I'm grumbling with envy for sure. I watched this and other your videos. Great job!

        Wow! That is fantastic! Where did you get the pattern for that? I would love to make one.

          I am NOT showing the picture of that to my 10 year old grandson. He would be all over me to make one right away!

                I'm pretty sure the blade was in right. It was an 1 3/4 piece of poplar. Once I was done cutting I couldn't even get the piece to come apart out of the block. Which as I remember it, indicates to much pushing and making the blade bend.

                For what it's worth I cut an ornament out of pine and...

                My wife got the vaccine shot in 2011 and 4 months later came down with shingles. It wasn't a light case either.

                My aunt said she found a cure for shingles: She heard that rubbing Dr. Tichenors antiseptic on it would stop it. She got in the tub and poured some on. As she tells it: "When...

                I also cannot perceive making that many of anything. I just finished about 30 of the mini birdhouses and am ready to start something new.

                I also have used the alcohol and shellac method. It really speeds up the finishing process. If the surface is left a little rough, a little touch up...

                I had trouble cutting once with a new blade and then discovered I had it backwards.
