@tong_and_hammer
Post anvil! Here is a beautiful example of a wonderful tool. I’ve seen them as big as 200lbs, but usually 75 to 100. They don’t take up floor space, and have clearance all around which makes them great for #scrollwork. ...#anvil #postanvil #farrier #blacksmith #blacksmithing #antique #antiquetools #blade #bladesmith #hammer #tongs #toolmaker #staywild

“Make it work” Jobs that make you think outside of the box, this is what makes me love my job.. We didn’t have an angle plate big enough for this weldment so I used what I could from around the shop to get this job done.. #generalmachinist #toolmaker #instamachinist #cnc #fanuc #mastercam #weldment #fixture #mitutoyo #bosinnovations #thinkingoutsidethebox #makeitwork

Sizing the mortise width to fit the wedge. The blind side of the mortise is pretty well done, as are the bed and breast. Most material left his coming off the escapement side as shown, starting at the top and working down to the throat. I am using two small cheek floats, one that cuts on the pull stroke, and the other on the push. The pull works good to hollow out the inside surfaces of the mortise. This helps ensure a gap free fit at the bottom of the ramp and the bottom of the wedge. Gaps can cause the shavings to catch and clog the plane. The wedge is used as a gauge to tell where material still needs to come out. Lots of trial and error for the final fitting...#plane #planemaking #planemaker #handtools #toolmaker #handplanes #moldingplanes #sidebeadplanes #beadingplanes #sidebeads #cockbeadplanes #benchwork #woodworking #planewedges #craftsmanship #precision #floats

@greengirlstudios
This type of yarn is the reason for making this ring. Without some sort of barrier, the top of my finger gets raw ( I made a little knit tube that helped, but slowed the process since it wasn’t slick). I’m testing the ring here, checking to see if it works and where it could use adjustments. I find that I enjoy making my own tools, or using handmade tools, it somehow elevates the craft. .#handmade #octopus #crochet

@redrosereproductions
I lay the plane flat to work the mortise walls to size down to the escapement. It's easier to gauge my progress with The plane in this position. Here I am using an edge float to remove the high area between the top and the escapement. Although not shown here, flipping the float over and using the back edge as a straight edge is a good way to check progress...#planemaking #planemaker #handtools #toolmaker #handplanes #moldingplanes #sidebeadplanes #beadingplanes #sidebeads #floats #cockbeadplanes #handtool #benchwork #toolmaking

@capocoreyollo
First piece going in the new office. Most of UPS package handling, Westinghouse/Schindler elevator safeties, accordion roller conveyors, Twinkie filling machine, all our production machines, all our die sets and molds, and countless other machines, equipment, and tools came off of this board, and that's only the stuff I know about. Let's see if I can't add to the list by the time I clock out of here. If I have it my way, I'll die in this room. #engineer #machinist #toolmaker #draftsman

@emeraldmachinist
When a machine breaks, I get poked “hey man we need it going now” these are the little 660 bronze shear pins that run the power feed on the mill. They managed to shear all 3 x,y,z on one job lol#machinist #machinistlife #instamachinist #machinistporn #machineshop #machineshoplife #manualmachinist #manualmachining #jobshop#starrett #mitutoyo #toolmaker #toolanddie
