I just bought this Davis & Wells horizontal boring machine. I intend to restore it and use it for mortising. Now all I need is an XY table. I’m also looking for a Jacobs 34B chuck (3/4″ spindle, 16tpi)–it has gone out of production. Anyone have an extra?
Yet another brick project that I have been putting off for too long.
Up until now, we have always put the bricks directly onto firmly packed sand (see brick path tutorial here), but this area will be used for parking and will bear a lot more weight. So we poured 3.5″ of concrete as a base for this brick driveway. Here I am sweeping the the dry cement mixture into the spaces between the bricks (above). My wife, Shannon came up with this pinwheel mosaic (below).For a tutorial on brick pathways, click here.
