tool making *PIC*

john lucas
I'm doing a demo for a wood working club on tool making. Below are some photos of some of the tools I will bring so I can talk about things like shaping the metal, drilling and tapping, restoring, and heat treating. In the first photo I have a Router plane I built using a big allen wrench for the cutter. There is a small plane I use for cleaning up corners and leveling cut off dowels. There is a scratch stock tool for making beads made from a file so I can talk about using files for your tool making stock. Then a few custom carving tools for special projects. The second photos shows some turning tools I play with. This will allow me to talk about drilling a tapping holes along with shaping the steel. The last photo is a custom made hollowing tool for those really hard to reach places.
