    Why is it always Victoria?
    Oh crap that was this weekend.... sorry to hear you didn't escape in time, hope to see you tomorrow, i'll even wear a mask just in case

    It doesn't feel funny to make jokes at Victoria's expense this time. I'm truly sorry that you're having to go through this again. In this instance, it won't surprise me to find other states having to follow suite though.

    I talked about the mallets I made for my Veterans' group and the provenance of the timber used.

    I mentioned that they were loosely based on a Paul Sellers design. Here's a link to the first of the three videos on how he makes them. I scaled mine down somewhat because I used heavy timber so I didn't need the size he did.

    Only Paul Sellers could make an hour and forty minutes of video out of such a simple project, but he does not miss a single detail.

    Todays topic about jigs was largely stuck to once we agreed that a jig could also be a template

    I showed of a draw slide spacing jigs i printed up specifically for the 5 draw cabinets under the new bench, all draw spacing is set in 100mm units.

    These provide an easy way clamp the slide in place as well.
    Consider the benchtop as the vertical side of the cabinet

    P6040058.jpg P6040057.jpg

    The white ones were designed based on the Goliath slides from Bunnings that are 45.4 wide, the bulk lot i got from ebay are just a little narrower at 43.6 so new set is being printed

    Speaking of the cheaper versions... I ended up paying @11 per pair, they seem just as smooth as the Bunnings ones, have the number and style of ball bearings but definitely had a slightly oily feel when unwrapped so may be slightly better lubed.
    Due to the "free" shipping the seller has shipped in multiple deliveries, so i got 10 pairs today with 10 pairs to come and no screws yet so before i link a source lets see how it pans out. they did message that they would be doing that.

    Cheers

    GAH! So sorry for missing today. I was in the shed, but forgot to set an alarm. I remembered at 12:46. In the off chance that you ran late I hoped on, but too late.

    I expect to be hiking next week, so may see you the week after.
