    I got to log in a little late, but there was nobody there when I did. I left the app running while I was posting on the Forum. I heard a noise and Pagie was there, but there was also background noise and I could not hear him, although I could see he was speaking. I don't know if he was having the same trouble as me.

    Not to worry: There will be another day.

    Regards

    Once I realised you had returned from daylight saving I was there!

    This is the McFarlane bow sander.

    MacFarlane Bowsander - Dunstone Design

    It was designed primarily for the curved components of chairs so it works very well on saw handles for example (and plane handles), It allows you to place the work in a vice and use both hands for operating the sander.

    I will liaise with Phil.

    Regards

    Theory and practice are the same in theory, but different in practice.

    Another Sunday Jabber done, for those concerned, chainsaws were spoken about on no less then tree occasions.
    But we did also attempt to stick to the proposed topic of Hand tools, even if some participants ďnewĒhand tools were missing bits.
    Also thank you Julies for once again being the overseer,[emoji6]

    An announcement!!!!!!!

    Paul AKA Bushmillar after much prodding, threads of fingers severed, an his wife being told the full worth of his massive Simions saw collection.
    Thought he might like to give us Talk on the history of Simionds Saws, so stay tuned ,Thank you Paul.

    Cheers Matt.

    Sorry i missed last Sunday but was exhausted after a couple of days of working on the main bathroom fixing the shower, basic re-grout and reseal it all.

    Going back two weeks though and the bow-saw sander I got some spare time on the 3D printer
    P4210153.jpg
    P4210150.jpgP4210151.jpg

    The wood is a little bit narrow but it was all i found that was close in thickness in the scrap pile tonight, to cold to actually think about machining a proper piece up

    Well it actually works, no sign of flex in the printed handles, the wedge seems solid enough.

    Couple of design changes will make it better though.
    - make the insert slot for the sand paper deeper (ie longer)
    - make the wedge both thicker and longer so it can be grabbed from the edges.
    - round the handle some more to make a more ergonomic grip
    - and for adaptability to different wood bows, make the hole larger but then do inserts for thinner or narrower bits of timber.

    anyway it does work
