Spinnekop (windmill) #4: De koker

09-27-2020 11:18 AM by JobK | 3 comments »

This part of the mill is called “koker” and can be translated as tube. It is part of the bottom part of the windmill and allows the main drive shaft to go from the upper part to the lower part. It also allows the top of the windmill to be turned to face the wind with its wings faced in that direction. It is made of 8 pieces and is held together by the “boven tafelment” and some iron bands. On the drawing are some comments noting that the tube has been replaced at the wrong dimen...

Making a (Very) Small Dovetail Saw

12-17-2017 09:15 PM by summerfi | 19 comments »

Making a (Very) Small Dovetail Saw I recently restored this 1840-ish British 10” dovetail saw made by Richard Groves & Sons. I like the saw so much that I decided to make a copy of it. I’ve made quite a few saws, but I’ve never made one like this before. My newly made saw is a 0.60 scale copy of the Groves saw, with only minor differences. Why, you may ask, would I spend the time to make a saw like this? With a blade that is a mere 6” long and a handle you can only fit one finger in, t...

Mini V8 Workbench Build #1: Beginning

04-17-2015 03:50 PM by Ocelot | 5 comments »

A borrowed photo of Paul (Shipwright) Miller’s V8 workbench. I’ve been admiring Paul (shipwright) Miller’s wedge-driven vises and, honestly, all his other work for some time. I have been thinking about building a workbench. The other day, I suddenly realized a wonderful benefit of having an entirely shop-built wooden vise: It’s scalable. So, I decided to build a child-sized version of the V8 bench as a precursor to building a full-sized one for me. Paul g...
