Compass to Dividers

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

I wanted a good set of dividers for laying out my dovetails. Lee Valley sells a set for ~$20.00 US, but instead of buying them, I decided to make my own from what I have laying around the shop.

I ended up substituting the pencil in a compass for sharpened threaded rod and saved ~$20



I took a small threaded rod and, in my drill press, I used a file to form a sharp point.  This worked out really nice.



New Hat for the Melon

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

I finally bought a new hat.  The old one was getting pretty tired looking after much abuse in the woodshop.  Don’t forget that you can show your support for the Garage Woodworks podcast by getting your own GW gear.

I also bought a few stickers and I think I’m going to give most of them away!
