Daily Bench Shot
  Re: Daily Bench Shot by Stwood_ (Post away. Give me a...)
Spent Saturday afternoon helping a friend's son with his Eagle Project - a rack for his high school ROTC drill rifles.  It is based on the CMP rack plans - double sided and designed to hold 30 Springfield M1903s.

Here are the pieces that we cut out over the last few weeks:

and the assembled rack (without polyurethane finish or casters):

Did a bit more with my Shaper Origin on Sunday. I've got a few table saw blades that need sharpening. Among them a Forest WW2. So they need some protection as they get shipped.

Decided to draw up a quick protector to be milled out of 1/4" MDF. Pocketed out a depth of 0.130" so that things sit just below the surface and all I need to do is add a nice piece of corrugated cardboard and slip everything into a box.

Took a little planning because this is a lot of material to pocket out with the 1/4" bit I had on hand. A better choice would have been to make a starter pocket with the 1/4" and then switch to a 1/2" with 1/4" shank and make some real progress.

Anyway, worked very well. Added some holes so I could glue in pegs or other to align a stack if needed.

About a year ago I helped the KU High Energy Physics (KU-HEP) get their little mitts on a 4-port Vector Network Analyzer. Suffice it to say that a brand new one with good specs runs about $150,000. So refurbished units hold their value. The one I secured for them was brand new in 1995 but even today goes for $40,000... Well, these little beauties have several little accessory parts and those tend to wander about the lab and get lost. So they are getting a nice little wooden box to sit next to the VNA and keep everything corralled.

And it was an excuse to play with the box-joint making ability of the Shaper Origin. Pretty cool feature. You give it the width of the workpieces and how many fingers. And you can specify something called "glue gap". Make the glue gap 0.000" and it is an interference fit. 0.005" and you can bash the parts together. 0.006" and they clamp together. 0.007" and it worked just perfect. One quick test joint in the material and I could make a dozen boxes that all go together interchangeably. 

1/2" poplar from the BORG, a bit of 1/8" hardboard for the bottm, a little hide glue and a dab of left-over poly and we are done.
