floriptoolworks It's time to get out the rasps and file for a couple days of handle shaping. Each handle will take a couple hours of shaping before any finish is applied, better turn on some tunes. #handtools #toolmaking #handsaw #woodworking #woodwork 7h

  •   calebjamesblog If you haven't seen it you should check out the saw handle makers rasp from tools for working wood. Just got one and am really liking it for making plane handles. Perfect shape. 4h

slojdpojken For this weeks #handtoolthursday, a homemade marking gauge. My first attempt to make one. Brass and birch, next time it would be nice with some dark hardwood. #markinggauge #tools #toolmaking #brass #birch #homemade #woodworking #woodwork #makeyourowntools 2d

  •   bergdalen Nice som tusan! Jag har smitt en liknande bänktving men dina var lite schnajdigare! 2d
  •   slojdpojken Tack @bergdalen. Ah vad kul, men bara de funkar så. Sen kan jag i och för sig lägga ner en hel del tid på att det ska se bra ut också. Men det är ju som sagt funktionen som är viktigast. 2d

  •   benson9design Very cool! Ever made a beer tap ferrule? :) 5d
  •   dpdubois1 Lovely little bits! I love seeing parts gathered pre-assembly. They glow with potential. 5d
  •   floriptoolworks @benson9design I haven't but I think it would be a cool piece to make. I'll have to give it a try. 5d

floriptoolworks Finished making a new setup for the readout on my lathe today. The previous setup required me to unclamp the tail end of the calipers and carriage stop in order to run the turret up with the die to thread my bolts. I milled up a few pieces of aluminum and cut a clearance on the carriage stop so the turret ram clears the whole setup. I don't know what took me so long to knock this project out but it is going to be a big time saver. #loganlathe #lathe #ghetto #toolmaking 6d
  •   wolfganggt Nice. What does the fixed end attach on to under the way? 6d
  •   carbidelabs Super cool! 6d
  •   floriptoolworks @wolfganggt there is a carriage stop that clamps to the bed ways. This keeps it adjustable and easy to remove. 6d

floriptoolworks I've been getting caught up on work this past week and it feels good. Come next Wednesday I will have a LOT more shop time so I'll be getting some more stuff in the mail. I'm excited because right after this posts I'll be setting up the turret lathe for copper and brass hardware. Life is good. #toolmaking #goodlife #handtools #handsaws #woodworking #woodwork 1w
