Howdy! I completed one of my first real projects; a vise stop:

It is based on other people's designs, but works great! You guys have been quite helpful; I've asked a few questions, such as what horizontal bandsaw to get, and it has made my life much easier.

Very nicely done!

How did you like the split cotters?

Bit fussy and overkill perhaps, but I enjoyed making mine.

Best,

Looks nice....
If I may....if you haven't already, get rid of those tall bolts holding your stop to the vise. Get something short .

Hey Bob -- it is your site that I found and based things off of; my hat goes off to you -- it was an excellent way for me to learn new things; a big thanks!!

The split collars are really cool -- I discovered I didn't need to machine the little shoulder; instead, I just compressed the things between two nuts on a threaded rod, and it worked great to hold it steady. It saved one machining operation. The collars work well with a larger diameter knurled wheel (say 0.800"), but not so well with a smaller diameter one (say, 0.650).

Oh yeah! They are *very* temporary just so I could bolt the thing on (they were what I had on hand).
