  1. excellent idea, like bow ties in wood working
  2. These are small, low power, variable speed. Safer? Tough call, but you can slow it way down so it wont be as violent. But perhaps quicker than by hand.. https://www.amazon.com/OPAVIOC-Jewelry-Polisher-Adjustable-Polishing/dp/B09MNB2VJH/ref=asc_df_B09MNB2VJH?tag=bngsmtphsnus-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=80676783972125&hvnetw=s&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4584276312388278&psc=1 Wet/dry "sandpaper" here is an inexpensive pack with the finer grits you will not find at a big box store. Automotive finishes stores have finer grits, parts stores have some https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08JJ39YX8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1

  4. @SUP Just saw this thought it might provide some insight
  5. Does anyone other than me wonder if this post is a legit inquiry?
  6. The bearing on the shaft looks fine it the pic. just behind the the little protruding screw that the notch in wheel fits over. Did you fit the wheel notch over that?
  7. I would guess larger wheels are the key, this may give you some ideas... https://duckduckgo.com/?q=off+road+dolly&t=brave&ia=web
  8. I am sorry, I do not understand the problem, not do I see any screws. A wild guess, yes there is a notch that fits over the protrusion on the shaft, then the roller to the left must fit in the groove on the back of the wheel, as does the roller on the shiny bar above, that is what drives the machine. If you already know this, please forgive me, I am not trying to be snarky, I just do not understand your question.
  9. Should there be a pocket (or two, or a couple of straps) for the tabs to go into? Or, glue as suggested, then glue +/or stitch a thin leather piece (match or contrast, or a lining of some sort) over where the flaps are glued to cover that area, and it would as suggested above, create another pocket at each end.
  10. I putter at it. Years ago I had a radial arm saw when I built decks. gave it away. the things scare me! I have large contractor grade table saw, but I wish I had invested in a decent size band saw instead. I think, track saws and a good band saw is the way to go if you have limited space, which is my situation, too much stuff. I have a bench top sears, I like the thing, but... Also have lathes. Love going to woodworking shows. Call me a wannabe woodworker, and purchaser of woodworking stuff.
  11. Please don't be offended, I am sure you did this, but .... good magnifing glass, perhaps its a allen, just a very tiny indent? I had one, don't recall why, but I used a very small grub screw, it was harder than the belt tip, so by carefully screwing it in, it cut its own threads out of the slightly smaller threads of the tip.
  12. Nice woodwork. Band saw? Lots of sanding? and maybe a large forstner bit?
  13. A lot of work, and they look pretty darn good. Very substantial. When you tell someone you made them they will look at you with that dropped jaw stunned look, "YOU MADE THOSE?". That will feel pretty good.
  14. Ragweed Forge great store, I have a few Mora knives from them.
