Engineering Close Grain: Building A Moxon Double-Screw Vise My Moxon double-screw vise, based on Chris Schwarz's design. Chris Schwarz did several blog posts last year about building a version of Joseph Moxon's "double-screw vise". I immediately wanted to build one. He refined his initial design, resulting in an article in the December, 2010 issue of Popular Woodworking. The purpose of this vise is to secure and elevate the ends of boards when sawing dovetails at the workbench, so that you don't have to lean over. By now a number of people have built it. I recently built a bench-on-bench, another solution to the same problem. This can be made up from scraps around the shop. The screws were the main source of my delay in building this, since I had to work on developing my turning skills. This maple came from a co-worker's backyard along a stream in 2006. Trimming up one of the quarters for a turning blank. The blank mounted up. At lowest RPM, starting to rough it in with the skew. Now at higher RPM, planing with the skew to smooth, uniform diameter.

Last Drop : Pumping Up Till The Last Drop From The Bottom of A Bottle | Industrial Design and Future Technology – Tuvie The Last Drop concept derived from the inconvenience of pumping up the finishing liquid from the bottom of a shampoo or shower gel container to avoid everyday wastage. The bottom of Last Drop container is designed in a way that the finishing liquids are stored in a cone following by slopes both side where the dispenser can easily reach and let the user to have even the last drop of liquid. The container is beautifully designed to enhance the bathroom décor and lets the user to see how much more liquids are left inside. This product is very helpful for recycling and anti-water pollution with its useful functionalities. Designer : Seonkeun Park and Jinsun Park

Materials Guide Weekend With WOOD is back for 2014! One attendee of last year's Weekend With WOOD caught me between classes to thank the WOOD staff for planning and hosting the event. He told me how much he learned during the class sessions, how he enjoyed meeting the world-class teachers and fellow attendees, and more. Thoughts on CNC I saw a demo of a CNC machine last week and wonder the general thoughts on it. Author: kmealy Posted: 03-18-2014 Template Material In the past I have used paper bags, copy paper, recycled drink boxes. Time for a real Bench Its time, well it is long past the time to build a decent work bench.

Simple mechanisms explained Email Below you’ll find animated diagrams and explanations of how various mechanisms work. Some of these have been crucial to major evolutions in mechanisms and technology, and allow us to do anything from fire weaponry to make cars move with the press of a pedal. Maltese Cross mechanism powers second hand movement in the clock: Radial engines are used in aircraft. Reciprocating movements power steam engines in locomotives: Sewing machine: Manual transmission mechanism, also known as “stick shift” is used to change gears in vehicles: This mechanism is called constant-velocity joint and is used in front-wheel drive vehicles: Torpedo-boat destroyer system is used to destroy fleet in naval military operations: The Wankel engine is a type of internal combustion engine which uses a rotary design to convert pressure into a rotating motion instead of using reciprocating pistons: + Bonus – mechanism you can watch forever Leave your comment: You may also like these posts:
