2021 Tool Swap / 6 Pack 2021 Tool Swap or should I say 6 Pack, of items that I wanted to make and which I will use in the shop myself. So, Yes, 2 sets were made.Pic #1, the main item, a Gauge Set-Up, made from Cherry, hat a magnet behind the ruler to hold it in place. This can be used to either set the height, or even set the fence. Also could be used as a depth gauge for a mortise.Pic #2, a Marking Gauge, made from Piquarana, a very straight grained South American wood (left over from the last plane swap). The ruler is held in place with a maginet. I sharpened a masonry cut nail and a 16 penny nail to score the wood, locked in place with a knuckle nut epoxied in place and a machine screw. On the other end I drilled a hole to fit a pencil, just pressure fitted.Pic #3, my version of a Shop Hammer, turned Piquarana and Bloodwood (again left overs) expoxy into the brass fittings. And an Awl, turned Oak, I took an old drill bit and ground it down to a point then sharpened further with sharpening stones. Expoxy to the handel and inside the brass compression fitting.Pic #4, A Beam Compass, a little Cherry and an 5/16” Oak Dowel. And a Center Finder, cut from Wenge and Brass Pins, set to find centers for up to a 6 by stock.Pic #5, everything laid out prior to assembly.I mentioned left overs, well I have a lot of those in the shop, so it worked out. I had to find the thicker brass stock for the wear areas on the Setup Gauge and the Marking Gauge, along with the Brass Pins.I drilled all of the required holes (some pilot only) prior to making any cuts in the required block. That turned out to be a great decision, so much easier with a square block. I think I used every floor or bench tool I have in the shop, and some hand tools.The complete set was finished with about 6 coats of Natural Danish Oil.Note: as I was packing the items up I ran out of packing tape, hense the Tyvek in the reveal photo. I was laughing at the time and on the way to ship it out.Thanks for looking LJ's And a ShoutOut to Keebler1 for running the Swap.And if any of you want to jump in on these Swaps, you should, it is a lot of fun. This project kept growing, and if I did not stop, there may have been a few more items. Bonus, I have my own set this time.
