    Minor Kermit Update.......

    Still need to get a new 5 step pulley for Kermit, as the slowest speed is WAY too fast, but I did get the knobs for the handles done, looks WAY better!

    Attachment 6486

    Next I'll borrow Dan's Drill Press Table design and build some thing similar!

    Cheers!

    The knobs look great... I just hope you didn't glue them on yet!

    Those handles could use a bit if rust removal and buffing, from here.

    Sorry, glued on, the handles have a kind of black coating on them, but the one that gets used the most has a kind of copper worn look. I'm not going to do anything with it right now.

    Cheers!

    Nice Knobs, Stu, and they've got "CHARACTER' too. However,.....now that you've got those Purty Knobs, you're just absolutely going to have to POLISH the RODS they're mounted on.

    Now, since you've moved the Relatives, refurbed the workbench top, and got Purty knobs on Kermit, the big question, ............. How's the Bandsaw Design coming along? We're Ready for the Action.

    The Bandsaw is on the drawing board, I've got a ton of stuff floating round in my head, bumping together every now and then, and I jot something more down.

    I'll be heading out to Joyful Honda (my DIY store) next week, maybe even Monday, so not to worry, it will happen fairly soon.

    Cheers!
