  1. bending jig

    This is a bending jig I just made, not my design but I don't remember where I saw it . If someone knows...
    Basically a gap between two tubes, put the flat bar on and hammer it, the more you hammer, the more it bends.



    Crude but effective as you can see, I made one carter for the sander and the other for the grinder. Both came well. It's a quick and easy way to make the curves you ...

  2. quick and dirty polishing machine

    I quit buffing with a drill press, I had to stop often and it was noisy. So, I put together a salvaged drill chuck, a washing machine motor and a coupler I made. Here's the result:



    The motor is silent, I really appreciate, and a lot of tools fit on the chuck. I've to work a little on it to make it look less rustic, ...

    Maybe some Thor effect but I made 2 hammers recently.
    This tiny one (6") is for my father who's a judge:

    I brazed a 20 cent euro on each side, it's figuring "Marianne" a French symbol (same as on the coldplay vivalavida album).

    This hammer ...

  4. homemade lathe tool

    Not my own design.
    This tool is a great help for beginners like me. Push it gently against the loosely tightened piece while the lathe is running and it will center itself. Stop the lathe, tighten the piece and you can start machining.

  5. disc sander upgrade

    I made this disc sander 6 or 7 years ago. I put together a 2hp electric lawn mower motor, a 7" wooden disc and some metal plates. Ugly but effective:

    It was time for an overhaul, it's now a pedestal 10" sander with a tilting rest.

    I just made a shaft coupling ( from ingot ) to make all the hand grinder's ...
