      Dust causes Rod's camera to shake uncontrollably and the focus won't work properly, which is why he can't use it for these pictures. I'll have to make a visit with mine someday.

        LMAO......Funny stuff

        I guess that if Baghdad Bob is a witness to the accuracy of events, that does it for me. The prosecution recommends dismissal of all changes and extends it's most sincere regrets to both the defendant and the Court. I extend my thanks to ATH, Solicitor Supreme.

            My new height gage at:



            Also answers several questions including:

            blade elevation per turn? Its .0833" per turn, very accurate.

            How much error can you get by not measuring blade height with a tooth at the very top? You can easily get as good as within .002" (about 1/512th of an inch for those into fractions) if you just eyeball the tip to the center of the arbor wrench slot. Surprisingly, if you pay no attention at all to where the tip is, the error this causes is no worse than plus zero to minus 0.019" (just a hair over a 1/64th"}.

            These and others discussed in detail at the link above.

              I've been needing one of these for a while, figured it was a good time to get one done.

              Clamp knob was made from a couple pieces of the 2x6, glued up, cut with Forstner bits and sanded. Stock clamp is made from a length of 5/8" all thread, knob is epoxied on and the clamp pad end is held by laminating pieces of 2x6 around a 5/8" fender washer.

              Front rest is reversible with two different radius cutouts, on for use with barrel resting directly on the rest, the other larger for a stock forearm resting in the cutout.

              Base was made by resawing a length of 2x6, edge glued together and banded with more of the resawn stock using mitered corners.

              Leather came from the cut-offs from my cycle leathers made about 12 years ago.



              2 coats of Olympic 'Ebony' stain and a topcoat of spray on shellac.



              Also, film canisters to capture those small loose parts that always seem to roll into the most inaccessible places. A cleat was glued on under this area and Forstner bit used to cut the holes.
