I know... the old guy has too much time on his hands!!
I think it was Chuck that bought a new drop cord and posted a thread the other day... Well I tripped on my extension cord to day and actually said a very bad word!!
I was just finishing up the router fence and a though came to me... an image that goes back to the farm days! So I drew up a quick "reminder" sketch and got the fence pau (finished in Hawaiian pronounce pow) and went right into another venture! I'll have to make this into a couple of post as I think the pixs will say more than the words.
The only think I need to work out (and I have a good idea already) is stop mechanism to keep the cord extended all the way and not retract.
I cut 4, 8 1/4" discs out of 1/4" hardboard and 2, 6" discs out of 1/2" ply. Beveled the edges of the hardboard to 45* and not quite to the edge.
I forgot to mention, we used this same system in the milking barn to automatically close the door.
