What’s New?

I see that traffic has picked up both on my YouTube channel and here, so it looks like people are starting to get back in their shops and are looking for something to do. Ever since I made the project tutorial on the Micrometer Carriage Stop, you guys have shown a lot of interest in the clamp type knurling tool that I used, so I went ahead and designed one and just finished detailing the drawings. It should make a very useful project and will be fairly easy to make since it only has four unique machined parts. It’s been a little painful getting back to this webmaster stuff after being off all summer, but I managed to build the page and get links posted to all of the drawings. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to shoot the first video, so that will come later in the week, but at least you’ll be able to take a look at the drawings to see what’s ahead.
