Default Wooden Padoccks

Has anyone made any wooden padlocks?
If you have, how did you round over the shackle?
If you used a router, how did you hold the shackle safely?
I've made two locks and luckily I still have a complete set of fingers.
I could use some advice.
Thanks

Hi - just how big are these critters? Can you post a pic? The outside might work OK with a small handheld router and a fixture, the inside edge could possibly be treated as a stopped dado using a roundover instead of a straight bit. Again, handheld with a fixture. Safest, to me, would be to use drum sander kit on the drill press but likely wouldn't be as consistent as using the router.
Best wait for some of the gurus to weigh in, interesting question though

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi The locks are about 4 by 9 inches the shackle is 3/4" dia and about 2 3/4" center to center between each leg.
I routed these free hand. This was frightening any suggestions as to how to do this more safely?
Thanks

I do mostly wood turning. I have a few articles on construction so one day I'll knuckle down and start one.

Hi Guy:

You'll find that an ideal job for templates. Lots of info, just do a search. You're looking for threads from Tom O'Donnell and Harry Sinclair. You can also do a Google search for Tom O'Donnell.
