They paid by themselves

Hi to all of you.

Almost at the same time when I posted this thread here, I sent the same pictures to WOOD Magazine since they were asking for some tips used at woodworking. Few weeks later I recieved an e-mail from the magazine´s editors offering to buy the rights on my non conventional tools.

After a tedious paperwork, the taxes and bank comision, the money was reduced by almost 50% but I am happy because my non conventional tools paid by themselves.

Aaahhhhh, they will appear in some magazine´s edition but here, you won´t pay nothing for them.

Best regarsd.

Hi, Rogers.

Thanks a lot for your comment.

Pop rivets are handy material for this and others applications. They are in several kind of metals and, even coloured plastics. Just to remove the stems to replace them for nails and you will have a centering dowel jig, a marking gauge and so on.

Using some soldering you can fix the nails to have a permanent tool. And they are cheap!!!!

Hi, Bobj3.

Thanks a lot for your comment.
I copied the wooden knobs from a post that you wrote in this forum. Soon I'll show something I'm preparing, inspired in another one.

Best regards.

papasombre I forgot to metion another non-conventional tool. May be all of you have one of them. You can't drive a nail, cut a piece of wood or, even put it the tool box. Nevertheless, it has become a dependable thing: a camera!!!

MEBCWD Hi Alexis,

Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention!

You needed tools and you invented tools with your imagination and the resources on hand.
That is why we have most of the things that the human race has today ..... LIKE ROUTERS!

Good job!

Mike

papasombre Hi, Otis.

You are right, my friend. I forgot to include a short description in each picture. As I wrote, I'm not in my garage where I have all the necessary tools to do this job, so I tried some tricky ways to accomplish it.

First, (pictures 1 and 2) I made a marking tool using a C clamp, a nail and two scrap pieces to draw the line to place the dowels.

Secondly, I removed the stems from the aluminium rivets and replaced them for nails to use the rivets as a dowels centers. (pictures 3 to 6)

Finally, to put all the pieces together, I used threaded bars as clamping tools. At home I use wooden knobs, copied from somebody in this forum, to delete the hex wrenches.
