Re: My first finger joint box.

Not finger joint made it a week ago, it`s a really good design for a napkin holder.
Used to have a metal one and the napkins stood on edge that didn`t work very well, the roller keeps them down so one rolls out perfect.

My first finger joint box.

Made a finger joint box today for the first time, used a regular table saw blade but have a Dado blade on order. It`s kind of a pain in the butt with all the flip here and turn there but we got er done. Plan on making a couple pistol boxes. https://i.imgur.com/LvR0zDkh.jpg https://i.imgur.com/XGy8cg...

Re: Home made electric motor.

Here`s what i have thus far, i just figured out that the armature has to be insulated from the shaft it spins on or it will be magnetized from the base.
So will have to drill a bigger hole in it and make a wood bushing.
