Teagus,
This is fantastic to watch, but I am left hanging for so long between updates. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas.

Kirk,
I second your problems with machinists. I wanted to get a table milled flat and fitted to my linisher like yours but it was going to cost nearly as much as the sander.

I second the desire to get that PDF file - PLEASE. Judging by your pictures, you are making a bit of income from this and therefore I expect that you may wish to keep the plans as a closely guarded secrets. That being the case, I will just have to start from scratch... :)

Made it to Mike Quinn's Hardwoods. Mahogany, Brazilian walnut, local walnut, figured cherry (quilted-hope it goes through the planer without chipping out).

His mahogany shed.

Mike in front of shed with walnuts, cherrys, zebra. He has about four sheds like the red building and a big barn.

This would be an awesome project to do for my dad! I would like the PDF as well.
I think you have ruined me, all I wanted to do when I started this crazyness was shoot a moose with a sharp stick. Now I have to think like an evil scientist and huddle in my dark lab doing millions of esoteric calculations to squeeze that last fps out of my diabolical inventions.ARGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!! Ain't it fun!!

Just finished designing the side plates and a safety. Machining will start next week.

Decided to tig the axle to the side plate.
Thinking about a third screw to hold the plates together.

My new 2 burner propane forge is finished. Next step is operating lessons from the builder. Also need to finish the cart for it. Then the 100lb gas tank......... Trigger and stirrup. Done :roll:Forgot the front sight.

Stirrup design. Heavy and wide for a huntin boot.

Just got my hands on a Horton fiber optic pin sight. Starting the bracket design. Mounts with two smaller vertical holes at the front end. BTW, twisting bar stock with a mouse is a lot harder than a twister bar.
