Thread: Next Project

    Next Project

    Here is the project fro the next few days.


    I want to mount the feeder to the shaper top without drilling any holes through the table. I have to make some T-bolts and drill a few hole. Hopefully I can get it done in short time so I can use it soon.

    tod...down the center between those slots is a cast in tunnel for the dust collection. The walls, even though pretty thick, I don't think would support the feeder. So I am going to put down 1/2" plate steel, drill it for the feeder base, and drill it for holes to bolt it to T-nut that wil slip into the T-slots.

    reg,
    put a tongue on the plate to keep the base from rotating in the slot, that and make one long "t" nut so that you`re applying pressure over several inches in the slot.
    remember that`s a 24" (or longer) lever that you`ll be prying with and it`d be a real bugger to rip out a chunk of cast along the slot

    I have 2 slots in my table. about 14: apart. I will be haveing a 9" T nut in each slot
    Heres the start





    I don't have any square stock but my friend dose so I'll be stopping by his place later to get it to make the T-nuts....Its an odd size so regular T-nut won't fit

    .....well heres one of the T-nuts. I will have to fix the draw bar to finish the other one. It came apart at the hex nut so I will have to pin it or weld it

    Well I had to make a little gizmo today to make sure I got the T-nuts threaded perpendicular. Ita used in the drill press to put downward pressure on the top of the tap so I can get the tap started stright. It only takes about a 1/4 in travel to have enough threads to finish the hole






    I will drill and tap the holes maybe tonight and try to get some pics of how it works

    heres the result of the tapping gismo






    That made tapping the holes sooooo much easyer. I hope to get the holes drilled in the plate steel today and mounted on the shaper getting ready for cabinets this spring
