Re: Happy 35th Anniversary Jake and Elwood

Gadgetman, You noticed the inlay direction huh? It's amphibious. It can be played as a lefty or a righty. I like to look at it as though the player needs to be reminded they are on a mission from God and not so much the audience, but really, after I cut the fret slots I said, "Dammit! I should have ...

Re: Workholding with Threaded Inserts

It's not a clear shot of the hold down but it's the only one I can find at the moment. I'll take another shot and share later this evening. Jake and Elwood - Hold Downs.jpg You can see the holes through the waste board have been tapped and the threaded broom stick with a handle and hold down in the ...

Re: Workholding with Threaded Inserts

I have a 1" 8 TPI tap and thread box like this one from Highland (http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/manualwoodthreader1-126tpi.aspx) that I used to make one off and disposable chucks for my wood lathe. Instead of buying the inserts, I drilled holes in the waste-board and tapped them, I make my hold...

Re: Happy 35th Anniversary Jake and Elwood

The inlays aren't perfect but they're close enough for government work. It's just a positive and negative v-carve toolpath in contrasting woods. I then glue them together with Titebond II and after 24 hours drying time I used a bandsaw at the glue joint to separate the two pieces. I then ran it thro...

Happy 35th Anniversary Jake and Elwood

Thanks for "Putting the band back together". Here is one of my recent projects that included a considerable amount of Shapeoko work. A cigar box guitar with Jake and Elwood sound holes, a cop car license plate bridge, inlaid and fretted fretboard, and custom headstock all thanks to the wonders of CN...

Re: Shapeoko 2L

Thanks for the education. I knew someone would straighten me out on my nomenclature because I figured any ME or machinist was cringing at my poor attempt at explaining what I'm looking for. I tend to do better with color glossy pictures with lines and arrows and descriptions on the back of each one....

Re: Shapeoko 2L

I'm looking at controlling the spindle too Jim. I'm going to use an old Dunlop ironbed lathe for the base of the build and want to be able to do the work around a wood spindle. I'd like to be able to manage internal and external threading as well. Just starting my homework for the project so your tw...

Re: Shapeoko 2L

Excellent Jimf. I would definitely want to be able to do threading. I'll take a look at the link. Thanks.
