I have needed a tool post grinder for a long time… So, I made up a simple tool holder last week to fit on my QCTP (quick change tool post), and it uses my old Dremel flex shaft.

Right after this photo was taken, I shut the lathe down, but did not shut down the grinder… When I rotated the work piece, my pinky found the grinder…

Here’s the jig for the top of the chair. It’s all 1/4”  A36 plate. Still need to make the bending dies, and a stand for the whole thing… The chair only uses two pieces of steel rod, hence the two part jig.

So, I’m in the smack-middle of building a jig to bend steel rod into chairs. It’s a two part jig, the base (shown), and the top. Look close for the awesome joinery at the corners… Many more posts to come on this project!

After a week of trying to troubleshoot a crippling problem in the amazing automatic torch height control (ATHC), and having to order a new one, I spotted this… Two tiny little resistors that look a bit crispy! $.80 worth of parts had left me sleepless in worry for a week!
