I did manage to come up with 34 pages of projects that may still garner some interest. The first is a nice little sheet metal former (slip roll), it requires some machining, but if you incorporate some of Vincent Gingery's methods in his slip roll build, you may be able to get away without it (message me for more info). There is a plan for a nibbler attachment for your jig saw. For the wood turner a beautiful antique reproduction of a vertical spinning wheel, a very useful shrink plate for the shop and a self reading O.D. shop gauge. There is a double duty sander setup for your drill press., a plan for chip shields for milling machines, and a versatile lathe brake that can be operated from 3 positions.
Xmas is coming and for the artist in your life, there is a plan that will make any artist very happy. I have seen many plans for easels but this "Ultimate Easel" tops the list.
