  • Another little project off the list

    Made a new knob for the shaper. Just free formed it looking at the cross slide handle on the lathe. But it came out nice.
    Wow... where did the time go. I could of swore I was only out there for an hour.

      So, are you going to describe the process?

      (meant to be humorous, not up on the smilies)

      Need to make one for my mill, and i've been looking at it trying to figure out where to start!

        Gotta make one for my shaper too. The same handle is busted. Nice job. Mind if I copy it?

            I have made a number of those handles, for and on various machines.

            I usually freehand them to rough but mear final shape using the slides (no gravers and toolrest) and finish by filing them smooth.

              Sorry no picture of the process. I just chucked a piece and removed anything that did not look like a knob... using the carriage and cross slide in echo sketch fashion and a few cutter changes. A bit of filing and emery work. Evan... sure. I'm sure you'll do a finer job then I.
