Yeah, I was thinking of that conversation from yesterday about how you cut better with a marples pull saw than your better saw.

Hi Dave. He is a clever fellow indeed and I admire his resourcefulness, but his methods are obviously the result of a limited range of tools and he isn’t necessarily doing things the best way. He should be a great inspiration to others in his shoes. I couldn’t help being very impressed with his ball jig.

Where there’s a will there’s a way. You and I, SuperD, havehad this conversation several times about how someone with the desire to make something can do so without having the latest and greatest tools. Sometimes you just have to work with what you’ve got.
Well, it seems this guy has taken that idea to an extreme. He seems have a passion for it. After spending about an hour watching some of his other videos, he also seems to have a limited amount of tools to work with. It hasn’t stopped him though. I’d love to shake his hand. I’m impressed.
Thanks for the links. I don’t go on YouTube enough to find this stuff without people providing links to this sort of thing.

Oh, man, does this guy scare me. The jigs he uses to make wooden bolts and nuts… shudder. I want to make wooden nuts and bolts for an upcoming project but I think I’ll try to find a safer way to jig these.

The ball jig wouldn’t be so bad if he had spent the time to make better handles instead of working with his finger sooo close to the collet of the router.

The whole time I was watching the video about the bolt thread, I was noticing how close his hand was to the bit and was thinking, if that bit only caught a small knot or something, he was [email protected]#$#@.
I wonder how many times he’s done that though? I could see in the video that he still had ten fingers. I wonder about toes.

I’ve watched tons of his videos before. He’s very impressive with his amount of creativity. I have made about 10 wooden balls with the router technique. It’s actually not that scary.

I’ve always said Po boy’s have Po ways. Knowing what and how you can do things with what you have to work with can achieve a lot of results. Although I think if he learned the word SAFETY he’d come up with a whole lot more ways to do some more cool stuff.

Thanks, some great ideas (some scary ! though) for me to make a nut for my ,finished big bolt
Cutting the threads,on the nut, the way he is doing it ,could be done with, a jig to hold the nut, and keep hands away from bit, with a foot switch hooked to the router also.
EEngineer , with ,,The Beall Wood Threader Kits,(jigs) you can make nuts, and bolts,from 1/2” up to 1 1/2”
Of course there are other ways also.

Ok, via Google translation…..

“If you are making in this way if you pay attention to hands, please work with glasses and wearing safety equipment must face guard and dust!

Ladies and gentlemen, if you try the demo tons of woodworking techniques be fully considered safe if I please, if you have any concerns at all please avoid. Thank you judge the safety of your own responsibility. “

That follows the demo on making the wood screw and nut.

Thanks KTMM. I wondered what all that meant when I seen it. I had no idea how to decipher t easily. I don’t have the computer skills that some of you have. When I done the Italianta Chandelier, it took me hours on end on several different translation sites to translate about five sentences of italian.

test. test. test.
Nope, I had to turn my whole laptop upside down since my keyboard is attached to my laptop. I had to hold the screen side in my lap while propping the keyboard side up with my coffee cup. Then I had to really try hard to figure out the letters since I had as much trouble reading the letters that way as I did when you posted above upside down.
It didn’t work though. You recon something is wrong with my computer?
Maybe if I remove all the letter from the keyboard and turn them upside down?

Making the screw seemed safe enough but I don’t think I would have the ballz to make that ball :-)
Regardless, very clever!

Thanks bentlyj. Before I logged back on here though, my daughter came home and she told me how to do it. Anytime I don’t know how something works on my computer I have to ask her. Sometimes if I could afford to pay for technical assistance, I would just hire her full time to help me figure my cell phone out.
I wanted to come back on and one up SuperD by typeing a reply sideways (like my daughter showed me how to do). The bad thing is though that she left again and I can’t figure out how to do it again now.
Oh well, I got a new idea. Next time I misspell anything, I’m messing with ya’ll like SuperD. I mean to do that.

I was up in the wee hours this morning and went back and watched some more of this guys videos. Somehow I had missed your link above for the weave pattern cutting. I’m going to have to set something up and try that one. It looks safer than some of the other things he does, and I can think of a lot of uses for that trick.
I wish I knew how you guys find all this neat stuff on YouTube. Anytime I try to find stuff on there, I don’t have very good lock. I’ll start out finding some pretty decent videos. Then after that it seems that the suggested videos it gives me is so far off the path of the type stuff i’m wanting to watch that I finally give up and go to HULU and watch Law & Order.
