    I replaced the round bar with a square bar as Metal hero told, it won't slip sideways that way.

    And I sprayed some blue paint because I was bored with the crappy look. I'll probably have to wipe it out later but it won't rust in the meantime.

    I need to make pulleys, not sure what to make it out. So I ...

  2. a new brand is born

    Whether I really create a brand (something to get a headache in France) or not, I need to add some spirit to the things I make.I thought I had to create some logo.After some brainstorming and a few dead end I found this:

    I just replace the "P" by a leg vice, that is supposed to evocate the old school work's quality , plus this leg vice is an heritage from my great grand father, a farrier.

  4. almost flasks

    Well that's just a bunch of boxes I made this weekend, made me thinking on building flasks ( as soon as I get some petrobond ) .The disc sander was very helpful but to get a flush cut on the dowels, I also used a scraper.
