    This was a fun little project, I learned from it and gained a bit more experience on the lathe and milling machine. I also really enjoyed nickel plating which turned out fantastic.

      Well done.
      This is one of those simple straight forward projects that many people can easily do with quite a few things that can be used on all sorts of projects. Its the first time I have seen that type of nickel plating demonstrated.

      I'm very excited to have entered the hammer giveaway!
      I did just want to mention that there are a couple of odd things in the Ts&Cs of the comp, though (just in case it makes a difference with the powers-that-be who make you put things like this into raffle terms). The 'value' area is blank, and the dates look odd (in that the comp is theoretically over as of 3 months ago).
      Anyway, I assume these things won't affect the comp, but I wanted to let you know in case it makes a difference.

    Aside from the usual fantastic craftmanship, ingenuity, and attention to detail, the tools you have been making lately are not just tools but pieces of artwork too. Fit equally well in a toolbox/drawer or a display. Watching the process is a real treat too.

      He said its "free-machining", that means it is easily worked on the lathe. Though the double meeting of free-material works too I suppose.

    • Pask Makes
      Pask Makes  4 months ago +8

      Glad you enjoyed it! The steel is off cuts from a local CNC workshop and while there were free as Ashley mentioned they are free machining meaning they machine well. :)

    That was just beautiful. I really enjoyed watching that thing being made from scratch in a workshop. Very well done!
    Ps, I went to school for metalwork, (yet I didn't finish the third year, and chose a different career for some reason), so in theory I know how to make that with such tools available. But, even though I am a perfectionist when I make something, my result today would not be as good yours. You got great skills and a steady hand! 👏

The way you seamlessly combine your metal and wood working skills is a true testament to your talent and dedication. This project showcases your remarkable craftsmanship.

Keep pushing the boundaries and sharing your expertise with the world!

  • Christopher Jones

    I actually made this with a slight modification, essentially instead of needing the two external plates I milled the anvil into a t shaped piece and bolted a top plate onto that so the sliding components all take place in the slot. It was a very fun project to make.

Whenever you say, "I'm gonna give it a go" I know we are in for great machining, wonderful education, and a lovely good time. I wish I could get to Atlanta to see you, but the distance from me to Atlanta is similar from you to Perth.🥹Thanks for this and have an awesome trip.

    Quick tip: use glass jars instead of plastic in the ultrasonic cleaner. Plastic absorbs a lot of the vibration and therefore attenuating the cleaning.

    My Dad has one in his tool collection never knew they stopped making this tool😳 well with all the modern tools that can be bought to do so much of the fine detailed work. When Dad is better we are going to have to go through all of his boxes of tools. Some of them he designed and made 40-50 years ago. Some of his tools were second hand when he bought them so they are well over a hundred years old 😹😹he spent as much time working on engines as he did at night school to advance his knowledge. He and Mom wanted to come to Australia as early as 1969 but he decided he wanted to learn more on the mechanical side of engines not just how to service them but how to rebuild from the ground up. So he crammed 10years of study into 5 years passed with honours and one of the top 10 students in the country. Because of this when they applied to move to Australia finally they actually paid to bring us out we only had to pay for our personal belongings.
    Goodness knows what tools he has in his kit 😹😹I do remember helping him make some of his tools with howlers of sanding metal to the specks he gave me😹😹umm okay that explains why I always revert to hand sanding the closer I get to the finish of anything I make now😹😹😹old habits die hard😹😹

    Wonderful video. A tap wrench that small is something not many probably need, but if you need one, there's really nothing else that will work as well. You could have easily knocked this together in a crude fashion and it would have worked, but you spent the time to make it with craftsmanship and care so you'd have something to be proud of at the end, and you should be.

    I've used one of those Tap wrenches when I was at the Apprentice Training centre, Newcastle Steelworks Australia, back in about 1977. It was great for 1/8" taps, it gave you very good "feel". Very well done, There are certainly a lot of steps to build this, but it is worth it, if you tap small holes.

    Every one of your videos drags me somewhere new and interesting. I initially started watching your scrap wood challenge videos when I was doing the same and I haven't ever really been into metal work but it is very cool! It's always been interesting to me that a fair amount of woodworkers transition to metal, but maybe this is just a natural progression of a curious artistic person changing medium. I came to woodworking via being a tileman of all things - the tile pays the bills and the wood makes the gifts and feeds the soul.

    This isn't merely a tool. This is a piece of useful art. If I could afford such a tool, after seeing the care and love that went into making it, I'd cherish it and hand it down to my grandchildren. When I was 14 years old, I made my grandfather a phillips screwdriver out of carbon hardened steel in 8th grade metal shop. When he passed away at the age of 93 nearly a decade ago, he still had that screwdriver in his toolbox. I'm now 56 years old and that screwdriver now resides in my toolbox, and my son will some day have it in his. It's the care and love that goes into making such a tool which makes it special, not merely its usefulness.

    I've been wondering why I haven't felt the same enthusiasm about your videos for while. I can say for sure that it has absolutely nothing to do with you or your work! You keep blowing my mind. Rather, I think it's because I have a small woodworking workshop and cannot set up a metal workshop. I'm in a basement and neither the noise nor safety could be handled in any satisfying way. So I guess I can't relate to your projects most of the time now-other than I would love to have a metal workshop! I would also really like to do some basic black smithing, but I can't see how or where. So it's me, it's not you 😅 You just keep doing your stuff and I will watch all of it! I just hope I can do some metalworking some day. I think I could as minimum do some lathe work.

    I'm sure someone has said this already, but if you weed your vinyl before applying it and use proper transfer tape, you'll have a much easier go of it.
    Great video as always! I learned a lot! That "electroless" nickel plating is really cool, but now that I went and bought myself a benchtop DC power supply, I'm not sure which approach is better.

    V nice little wrench, both the original design & your making one! :) I hadn't realised this design was no longer available; I guess the fully enclosed movable jaw & nut was a bit fiddly to mass-produce for cost reasons, which is why you only seem to get the knurled nut/adjuster on the end of the wrench nowadays..?

    The camera work must be a challenge with details that small. Thanks for recording this, it is fascinating to watch!
