slojdpojken Ahh, almost forgot it's #handtoolthursday ! My contribution for this week is a homemade gouge. I remember the steel was really hard to forge (SKF, ss2258 ball bearing steel). #forge #homemade #gouge #elm #brass #tool #toolmaking #woodwork #woodworkingtools #steel #ss2258 #makeyourowntools #woodworking #forging #woodturning #shiny #skf 20h

  •   knivesbylars Verkar vara typ samma som 1650 och det verkar vara lätt att få tag på 20h
  •   manismide Är tydligen ingen helt exakt översättning stod att det var närmst jämförbara. Men drivaxlar som sagt, några kronor kilot eller lite fika! 20h
  •   knivesbylars På skroten eller? 20h
  •   manismide Jajamen! Allt ifrån 20mm till 50 har jag hittat. Går att göra många verktyg på axel @knivesbylars 20h
  •   thebarefootforge I need one of these. Want to make another? : ) 15h
  •   manismide I could do that! @thebarefootforge Shipping is boring thou... Like your damaskusrings alot! 10h
  •   thebarefootforge Ah, I forgot you're over seas. Ya that's cost prohibitive. I just shipped a tiny ring from USA to France and it cost over $100! So I can't imagine what a larger and heavier item would cost. I appreciate the offer though and the interest in the rings. Looks like I'll have to put a nail header back on my project list! 6h

floriptoolworks I'm trying to get myself reacquainted with my marking gauge design this morning. I had an original set of plans that have now become a scribbled mess of notes that I wasn't able to cleanup before the relocation of my shop and family. I know it all means something...but what?? #toolmaking #markinggauge #saws #puzzled #makestuff #brass 1d

slojdpojken Finshed up this mallet yesterday. Made it a long time ago, but waited for dry conditions in the workshop. Its really simple with three layer head and weights inside. Fast and fun project. #mallet #heavy #hammer #wedge #elm #ash #woodwork #woodworking #woodworkingtools #makeyourowntools #tool #toolmaking #smashithard 2d

  •   isaacskulturbygg Var i klubban har du lagt tyngderna? Riktigt fint! 1d
  •   slojdpojken @hannaaahah :) Tänkte något liknande med. @isaacskulturbygg Om du tänker dig att huvudet är i tre lager, ett på vardera sida om skaftet (hela längden), och så två bitar på vardera sida mot slagytorna (de lämnar ett vinklat hål för skaftet. Jag har även möjlighet att borra ett hål på varje sida innan sista långsidan limmas. Det kan fyllas med hagel, och i mitt fall 35 mm rundstång. Lite luddig kanske... 10h

jj_rides Made this arbor and pieces of #tooling today here at #theGEAR. This will be setup in a @haas_automation indexer and they'll be cutting gear teeth on the segment section of the part. Pretty neat part too. #machinist #toolmaking #machinistnerd #cnc #machining 3d
