Answering a request

Several friends have ask me to do some background and how-to information on some of the tools on the site. I believe it's needed and I'll probably start on it this week. Maybe some step by step's and photo's better explaining the processes.

DIY Tools Back Drop/Mirror

Just added a new DIY tool to There are lots of mirrors and back drops commercially available. The designs are really good for vise with 3/8" shafts. I use a Nor-Vise and they just don't fit. I'm not all that interested in having a back drop attached anyway. Check out my idea for a recycled design.

DIY Tools (new)

Just added to two new tools under the DIY Tools section. The Threader was a idea that came to me as we were cleaning out some computers and throwing away some accumulated junk at work. The Deer Horn tools were an attempt at something traditional and cool for my tying bench. Traditional materials appeal to me sometimes. They work surprisingly well. I really like the feel and comfort.
