I found these 3 violin type Padlocks on the net, so thought I would try and replicate them.

First the picture , then the replica, each are slightly different. This one has the shackle on the left.

I cheated; I blew it up.
I think Herb cut it out of a piece of flat stock then carved it into a round profile (in cross section).
Is there a prize for the right answer?

Herb, it's hard to judge the size of those. Is that a placemat that they're on?

Thanks for all the good thoughts and comments.

Allen, these are only for working padlocks.
Russell, I made the shackle out of a flat board, you will see it in one of the pictures below.
Dan, you are correct,good detective work.
Yes the pictures are taken on a standard place mat.

Here are a few pictures I took while figuring these out.

I first made a template out of 1/4" MDF, so I could transfer the outline to the pieces, because everything in the body is cut out and assembled and the sandwich is glued together before the body is cut out.

The body is made from 2 boards the same size,in this case approximately 4"W 5" long. the center board is left full thickness and the other resawn equal thickness to form the front and back.

Here are the pictures the first ones of the first padlock with the shackle on the left, then the second or third one with the shackle on the right.

The other thing about Herb's work. He doesn't have to buy much material.
