For this mortiser I used a lot of design aspects from Woodgears. The
main difference being the X,Y tables. Instead of drawer guides, I used
polished steel shafts and sintered bronze bushings. It slides around
This was the most complicated jig I have ever made. It took me a
little over two weeks to build.
If youd like to build your own, you can find plans at Woodgears for
sale. If you choose to use the polished steel shafts and bushings as I
did, there is a CAD drawing on my website.
Looks nice Brian. I loved the wood handle for your mortiser.
It looked like a wheelbarrow replacement handle I had to carve as a kid on
the farm. No fancy tools. My dad handed me a chunk of wood and a knife and
told me to carve it. I complained that knife was dull, He told me to sharpen
it. So I carved me a replacement wheelbarrow handle. Your cute little handle
brings back memories.
Do you make your own tenons?
What a blast -- both watching it, and seeing how smooth and functional
Why do I have the feeling that -- for about thirty five bucks worth of
parts, at Radio Shack -- you could remote-operate that, from your
living room ?
Verrry cool !
You're having fun, ain'tcha? <G> Isn't this what this all about?
Those vids are getting more pro with each issue.
