Its very nice Denny but couldn't be done with what I call garden shed tools. I take it you have a lathe and a furnace?

Well I do excellent work without the lathe and the propane torch! Guess you havn't seen any of the restorations I have posted here.

Yes! I have a drill press but I doubt that anyone could make that punch on it.. and as to the propane torch... How many times in my life am I going to need one of those?

The hobby is about electronics and I've been an engineer, in so many fields, for 50 + years. If I need a few washers I can normally buy them from AES. Sure nice if you can make 'em but no big deal

Hi Denny

As Bob said dont apologise, its a good tip if you have the equipment to make it. I just commented that I reckonned it needed a lathe (and something more than my 'blowlamp'), which I still think it does. Cant see it being a an accurate enough job with my bench press and bench press vice.

Got the files and grinder so no problem with that.

As to a 'torch' that over here is 6ft bottles and rubber hoses, as used by movie safe crackers!! Here, we call 'em blowlamps and mine has a small gas cylinder, it might just be enough.

I'll try to keep my mouth tight shut in future. Why bother?

Gary

Precision work yes, for me only manual tools in my shop/retreat. I take metal tubing called EMT in the electrical world. Electrical Metallic Tubing. Comes in different sizes, grind end to knife edge and slam away on a piece of 2x4. Doesn't get much simpliar then that. :)

This one happens to be for 1/2"x 3/16"x 1/16" rubber washers that I needed for a motor mount. It's a slug of cold rolled drilled on center to the diameters required and then an edge turned. The cutting edge was then case harden with some Kasenite.

Well that's a very nice tool... but I have no means (or a lathe or lathe skills) whatsoever on making one... so where could I buy one.
I see it for making felt knob washers.

Denny... why don't you punch out a couple hundred felt washers and let us buy them from you via the classified area or something.

I'll take 50... or maybe 100 if they're cheap.

I went to your web page and was looking at your best dang tool for the bench. What is it? no description. The computer?
