i made a cookie cutter
« on: July 26, 2014, 05:50:56 PM »
I made me a bracket to cut cookies and short logs/firewood pieces. I saw another members setup on here a while back and realized I had all I needed for to build this. I made a few changes to fit my needs. I plan on using it to cut billets for my shingle attachment. I haven't cut any on it but I have no doubt its going to work without a hitch. it is very adjustable for very small short logs to as wide as my track and 4 foot long.

If you don't mind, I may copy your design.

That is a great short log jig! I may scrap mine and steal this idea!

Anxious to see how it works for you. When those blocks are standing tall, takes a pretty good grip to hold 'em.

Yep, I thought that looked familiar.  That Unistrut is handy stuff.  I have cut cookies with mine but it really shines on short 'logs'.

the top is unistrut but the lower part is slightly different. it is a thick aluminum track. its 1/4 inch thick and reinforced lip. i feel it will work well. i was hoping that being able to widen the base would help when the log is taller. also being able to swivel the clamps to fit irregular shape of the log might help too

Tom, thanks for posting that pic a long time back when i was looking for a jig for small logs. as soon as i saw it i knew i had to build it! it only took around 6 months to get it to the top of the list.

I like it. Let us know how it works as I may copy it and make one for my little mill to cut cookies :). I make them with a chainsaw but most of them come out looking like potato chips.

I didn't notice the terrible accident in the background of the last picture. it appears my dump truck has overturned. I guess I better get my backhoe in the left of the picture to try and upright it. how else will I haul my sawdust away. :D

I was about to comment on this but you beat me to it.  I keep my trucks under the table saw in a fresh pile of saw dust. There is a lot of trucking going on at times.  :D

How are you securing the jig to the saw?

I drilled through the bunks in 2 places per bracket. 1/2" bolts total of 4 bolts. my bunks are 4 inch channel.

 :Dlots of sawdust moved around my mill by dumptruck. luckily that's just the small truck.

I had a guy that I buy logs from, who also has a big circle mill call me and ask me to saw some cedar cookies today. he brought one big 26 diameter one and one a bit smaller. I put the bracket on and start slicing them up. I am totally happy with how it works. I didn't get any pics while cutting but here is the ends from squaring them up. I kept one mid sized one to do something with???don't know what yet.

I've never been able to air dry a cookie without it breaking in two or opening up an inch or more at one point.  Any secrets to keeping them together till dry?

I wish I knew the secret... I have had amazing luck though. I have only had one fall apart and it was a small 3/4" thick cedar coaster that I left in the van with the windows up on a hot day. I cut them in the morning when the sun is not on the mill.  I take them in the gravel floor shop and lean them against the wall. the shop is not air conditioned and I never put a fan on them. once I set them in the fans path and instantly heard checking start. took them out of the fan and all better. tomorrow, who knows I may have a stack of crumbles.
