Hate loose tools (and accessories).

Boys and Girls, just a quick dirty little project to ensure dust doesn’t settle in the workshop… no long narratives (planned) nor videos taken (also not planned).

C19 has coerced me into the purchase of another tool/jig that came “loosely” shoved into a tubular package. (Click on the link and this might justy make some sense.)

Upon opening the package, several pieces must have been enthralled in completing the journey from England to Australia as they immediately rolled off the bench and kissed the concrete floor.
This idolatry of false gods had to be terminated immediately.

Sometimes a confinement box for tools may percolate some civil libertarians’ abhorrence of jails, however, banging about in the open would be considered offensive to some of our censors, so I compromised to make a rack for the components, to keep them together and out of mischief.

Typically the first port of call was a cask and the 2nd. was SketchUp…

followed by the laser.

The first cut… well not the actual cut, but the 1st. prototype,

omitted provision for the TCT bit(s) so a quick re-design with an addition of a “wall mounting” plate,,

New design was re-cut, glued, test fitted and finally screwed up.

For anyone owning the Parf Guide Mk.II that has lost their TCT bit(s) and may want my first “cut”, will be called upon to reimburse the postage or if you consider that too costly, fly over to Churchill and collect… anytime, as I’m retired and C19 regulations forbid me to leave the house.

Cool gadgets! Half of that I don’t know the purpose… Perfect storage racks… Good work my kangourou friend

I can only sell the top 6mm of my drill press… that’s the depth of my laser… that’s why I laminate.

That’s ok, because I don’‘t know the other half, so we have everything covered!

Nice organization. I now know what the Parf system is after watching 5 or so videos.

I probably could have been more explicit, however, there are so many good videos out there to inspire rather than me babling on. The fact that you now know has served it’s purpose as it is a great system… at least a useful finished product if you like to assemble.

LBD it is very interesting to see the bench you made with that system. I already have the Track saw The 75. So will think about this system. Thanks for posting. (what is the all in $) I,m afraid to ask!

I tend to go overboard and get up front, what I may need in the future and often never use… but I’d rather have and not use rather than need and not be able to get. It’s like the Bessey Revo KREV clamps, I had a chance to buy more than I needed at the time, and now when I could have used a few more, there’s none available in Australia and a lot of international availablity is only 1 or 2 per supplier.

Rather than duplicate, there is a link to Axminster in my review of the Parf. That should show all the accessories that can be used in such a project… I believe Lee Valley is the US distributor and may give you cost in Yankee $.
If you haven’t seen Dave Stanton’s videos on these workbenches there is a starting point link in the same review that can get you into all sorts of mind boggling trouble.

If you have a few local woodworking friends, an investment between the crew would be quite economical as while it is exceptionally accurate and repeatable, it’s not something you would use on a regular basis unless you were an absolute mongrel to your workbench with destructive tools.

Not sure why you’re worried about dust? You have to use the tools to make dust. Those router bits all look brand new!

Nice project though. I envy all your toys.

Damn, you’re right LRM, I thought those router bits were blunt when I handled them,

but it turned out to have some stupid plastic protective coat!

I have excuses for everything… it’s remembering them all which is the problem…

One clever duck with computer and lazer for sure.
Maybe it’s time to upgrade the lazer?

Duck, I’m curious about where you’ve stowed that new tool collection.
Is that a repurposed louvered door or window shutter?
If so that’s quite clever.
Be well,
Mike

Loose stools? Thank God you didn’t include any movies Alex!!!

It appears that this little project kept you out of trouble at least for a short while – though now I’m going to have to spend time researching exactly what those tools do! There goes my afternoon…

Thanks Naj. Was part of the decor of the garage when I moved into the house,

The concept I just blundered across between glasses of vino.
The slope of the louver give a natural ease of access to each piece.

Set of accessories for one “jig”. Follow the link (above)... and get into Dave Stanton’s videos… might give an extra potential for the CNC.

Holy crap… Initially missed the leading s... god works in mysterious ways… that’s why he made dunny booths too small to swing a iPhone in.
Hmmm, might have to buy a bent selfie stick!
