My Dad used to work for John Deere back in the day. He has stories about a "paper shredder" that was build out the back end of a combine... Said the operators would carry out PALLETS of paper to be shredded- by dumping the entire load, pallet and all, into the shredder. Guess it was kind of a running joke to see what you could run through the shredder. Worked great until someone sent a *large* ball bearing through it...

Don't think this pencil sharpener's going to work too well for metal, although you would not believe some of the things I"ve pulled out of these things.

I'd put a grease fitting in that sharpener.

great idea but I think I'd opt for something more useful like a Daquiri machine.

I was really enjoying where this was going, until I read that.

Why the f*ck would someone even think to try such a stupid thing??!!!!

"I know, let's try.....THIS!!!" is extremely similiar to the phrase, "Hold my drink and watch this...."


I'll bet that was the end of the fun for everyone!!!

Show the intake, I just threw 2 of them carbs away, thay were part of some generic backpack blower. I don't think you need JD parts for that, don't think that one is even "Made in the USA". Couple of them weedyeaters at the dump here....maybe.

Have this Massey's Patent front vise:



...but it's missing the cam dog, visible in the patent drawing of the bench vise version, part "L":



The spiral cam on the lever shaft pushes the dog into the toothed plate in the fixed half of the vise, while drawing the vise tight. Here is a view from beneath the bench, showing the toothed plate:



The teeth on the new dog have to match the teeth on the plate. The teeth are 8 per 1-1/8", or .140625" apart.

Not a problem:



I made the maple pattern long, so I could have two dogs: one for a foundry pattern and one to test fit and use temporarily.

The pattern and the rough casting back from the foundry:



Cam surface and teeth are cleaned up with files:



Cam surfaces are greased and dog is placed in position on the cam:



Front jaw slides back into the housing and:



It works!

This bench has a vise on each corner. You can see the patternmaker's vise on the opposite side, and there is a nice quick-opening Reed front vise on the other end. You can also see two aluminum bench hooks that are part of an enclosed tail vise. I had a handful of these when I built the bench, and spaced them evenly, and intended to get and install more hooks later. There needs to be two more hooks in between each of the hooks that are already installed, based on the amount of travel the vise jaw has. Here is a shot of the enclosed tail vise:



So I found some vintage bench hooks for a good price, found they were 100% better than the aluminum I already had, and so I got some more so I can replace all the bench hooks with these much larger, stronger, cast steel beauties:



So the next step is to mortise in all these bench hooks so the enclosed tail vise will be usefull. Then all that remains is a drawer cabinet below for much needed additional chisel, gouge, and plane storage.

Was afraid of that, just figured the extra oomph might make up the difference.

Its not a JD, just a Weedeater brand. I have a thing for John Deere in my room though, mainly because I have a couple of students that like to bash it. That means my clock, the airplanes I have hanging from my ceiling, my computer, and just about everything else has a JD sticker on it, just to annoy them.

Pulled a carb off of a different weedeater, got it to *kind of* run. Need to find a better matching carb, but its complete and working-ish. I plan on re-doing the "driveshaft"- its a little offset and make the pencil sharpener shake. Pics to follow...

we DID have an interesting moment when the can vibrated off and hit the blades... Spun it around a few times and launched it across the table. A little DUCK tape, problem solved!





Nowhere near the right carb, but it kinda works.

Not a JD...color fooled me. Rosalie would have liked that, she's studying to be a teacher and big JD fan. They still do have pencil sharpeners at the teacher's desk don't they????

Carb for you? A Walbro. Free but $20.00 to ship.
