    That's amazing. If it were wood coloured I wouldn't know it wasn't an original. I like the idea of the wedges protruding to get a better grip for removal provided they don't get in the way when holding the sander. Do you know what the timber was for the stretcher? I note it just came out of the scrap pile.

    Regards

    Cheers Matt.
    The handles are 100mm high x 30mm wide and 35mm deep, minus the curved bits

    The distance between them is obviously set by the timber in this case it's @ 400mm in length

    For a small version i'd use something like i originally linked from thingiverse.

    Cheers
    Phil

    i've never tried to print with the wood filament and honestly the natural coloured filament was loaded.. The timber literally was a strip off one of the 19mm thick hardwood floorboards hence why it's only 19mm wide exactly what species of gum it is/was i have no idea.... damn hand tools... i like this and i'll make a proper width section of wood over the weekend.

    The wedges just need a couple mm each side, should never notice in use but will make it easier to handle putting in

    Careful Phil careful,

    Iíve heard on good authority that those hand tools are very very addictive.

    Cheers Matt.

    For me it will depend on how my ANZAC Day has been, I might be ready to crash by then after the early start.

    Best wishes for your unwell family member Matt.

    I am not certain if I will be there this evening either

    I too have a couple of health issues, with my back and other parts badly inflamed and painful. I have been running out of steam early in the evening as my body demands rest to assist with recovery.

    Lifting this new acquisition into and out of my trailer probably has not helped much either but for $250 for a 50-year-old 18" Woodfast with newly replaced bearings and blade guides was just too good to not take.

    It was a one on one with Doug tonight, although I am reliably informed that Pagie did put in a guest appearance, but left the stage by the back door early on when he assessed there was nobody in the audience.

    Yes, I had a one-on-one with Paul and a one-on-none with Pagie. Not sure what happened with Pagie. I could see him and hear him. He was watching New Amsterdam on TV or computer and either he couldn't see me or didn't want to. I did seem to have some issues with video so it was probably not Pagie's fault.

    The wife was watching New Amsterdam in another room, not me. I couldn't get a proper connection with Doug. I will try next week and see if it works better.
