Popular Mechanics Shop Notes Highlights 1968

Got the shop notes file done early this week, so we will get it up tonight.This weeks file starts off with a plan for a shop indicator that measures to 1/1000 inch. There is a double stroke bandsaw blade sharpening jig, a plan for a nice utility trailer for a garden tractor (I need a version of this one), a triple screen for the rock hound or general use around the yard. For safe work around the house there is a nice plan for a mobile scaffold.

There is an article on the ins and outs of knurling in the shop, another on sharpening irons and chisels, info on making and using boring bars, and a torch attachment for better cutting control. Theres a plan for a 2-way machine-vise clamp and we finish of with a nice article on filing in the lathe.
