Lots has changes since, my life, the numbers of tools competing for space inside the till and me trying to own back my shop.
For whatever reasons, it took me 2 years to complete it, surely one of my most longer projects.
But, Heh, time to celebrate now,
This Saturday, I worked a shift at the Wood shop on the Wing, so I yet again dragged my Boring till and its tool holders.
Did some sanding, to erase my markings pencil notes
Did not take long to cut the slots on the bandsaw, then more sanding
I know, you are wondering what is that thing on the sanding bench???
I dunno, but guessing a presentation piece for 413 Sqn,
our Search & Rescue Sqn on the Wing
Slipped my tool holders in their designated places
to check for fit with some tools.
Once I was happy, I drilled and screwed Robertson wood screws.
You can tell by the screwdriver standing proud on the screw :-)
Three (3) behind and two (2) on each sides, should be plenty strong.
No glue. want flexibility
Finally, this is what took so long to get there
You know I had to try it...
The two (2) up front did not fit in these holders...yet
Also more work on finishing the pieces for a small hall table muck up (Tm of Brian)
Then I had both wood and time left over so I start mucking up the front of the boring till,
Thinking of putting pegs to hold one brace horizontally (wooden braces)
Of, course, the way I have it now, it negate the uses of the slots on the holder bar, so that wont do, But I just want to get a feel for some ideas I am working on... Sigh, It is never finished is it... ? :-)
The till is back at home, but before it does gets screwed to the wall, I and going to removed both holders, gave them a coat of some finish, and gives the whole till another coat of paint, it has been around for a while and it shows...
And then, hold your breath.... I put it on and load it with tools... OK take a deep breath out now....
Next up on deck is figuring out what to do with the space under the window.
Need some space for drill bits and etc.
Most used tools holder of some sort and whatever else tickle my fancy...Squirrels!
Bob, glad to finally see that project almost complete, yeah....
Oh, and I need another plane till, found a box of planes recently in my cleaning up :-)
