To be able to attach my future hardware I need the ability to make nails. The nail is forged to a taper and then a tool called a nail header is used to make a nail head. I have been unable to find a lot of material on the headers construction. So I made it with the information I could find. It was a fair attempt.
After further research I have discovered I had the taper on the wrong side and did not have a square hole in the top. I will make another and try again.
My stop dogs have improved a lot. I have them at a good tight 90 degrees and they will sit flush with the bench.
These were used in a larger plane stop. I will be building a new bench soon and this will be implemented. For now I show how to install the dog in a one inch dog hole.
My new grand daughter was born this weekend. Ayrabella Rose Jones. After she was born Friday her Pawpaw had the next two days to make her something for her bedroom wall. I forged a letter A and a hook to hang it with. I hope this will last her many years and give her something to remember me by.
I have been trying to get the site to load faster. So if you see something you do or don’t like let me know. Leave a comment anywhere or send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have the time let me know what kind of ole tools you would like to see me make.
Thank you for your time.
