My Tenon Cutter is Now Set Up.
« on: March 09, 2015, 08:40:44 PM »
My off bearer is a really good welder and metal man / mechanic.
We went to the local scrap yard today and got a few odds and ends and Kirk welded up this rig where the drill will slide into the log and cut tenons.
After building a sturdy Pine table he welded everything up. We went to Lowe's and got a clamp for the log and welded it on.
Bolted the whole shooting match to the table and now we're ready for business.  :)
My thanks to member Yukon Cornelius for advice before buying all the cutters and drill.
Hopefully before log I can post some pics of our log creations.

Neat looking jig!   It should keep the drill from slapping you in the face.

Poston,

Hopefully, your offbearer is straight grained.  You are about as spiral grained as that elm log.  Even a diesel edger won't straighten you out.

That's a fantastic setup! I cant wait to hear how it does! I just redneck manhandle my drill while my log is clamped in a pipe vise bolted on my bench. on larger stuff I have a big jawed vise I clamp it in.  sometimes I get them a bit crooked. sometimes I drill my mortise hole crooked so its a wash. ;D I sure cant wait to see what you get going!  8)
It seems I am a coarse thread bolt in a world of fine threaded nuts!

Nice fabrication. Should be much safer then my two-man setup where my helper has to sit on the log to hold it.  :D

I wanted to see a tenon as well. Like the forum says, if there is no picture it didn't happen.
