Quesions I got questions!!
The horse is 8" deep. 12 would be unwieldy.
The heavy stationary sawbench is 12" deep and you are not carrying it
With the removable tool tote on top, plus the well underneath it, there
is plenty of room for long tools in the portable horse.
Yes its heavy (but I didn't load it up like its loaded now with every
single drawer stuffed tight hahhaah)
But with the gap between the tote and the top I can slip my forearms in,
and lift with my legs easily.
I was aiming for a station wagon tailgate, not a 1 ton 4wd monster truck
I didn't travel with the second horse loaded up with hammers and
axes either, btw. haahahah
The three legs were a nod to stability out in a driveway, but also
because I mostly work with my elbows in close to my body. Working close
to the bench meant splayed legs at 4 corners would be a tripping
hazard. 2 legs splayed and one straight worked fine.
The alarm signal was provided by a Smith and Wesson 36, Chief's
model. 38 special and a 2" long tube means its loud enough to make
everyone sorry when it goes off. haahaahah
This was all a long time ago. I had many tools and appliances in my
shop and Scott 'n me happily played like boys with toys all that day.
At that time --very-- few were making and customizing tools at all.
The delight he clearly showed in work I'd done was pretty inspirational
Many things you have seen me post over the years were designed and made
Landis, being definitely one of us, was tolerated at Taunton but not
Taunton sells ad space for a living. That's what a magazine does.
So articles on drawer pulls sell better with management, with a new
Powermatic table saw clearly showing in the background, if you see what
Stanley, Lee Valley and Lie Neilsen all take minimal ad space in FWW,
but 4 page full color spreads are bought by the bigger profit generating
outfits. The ones that go for 6 or $12,000 apiece sales.
Its not mandatory to use sponsors products in every shot. But the
more the better.
The kind of tools I make and alter can be tolerated in print
occasionally. But they would be much more welcome with a brand new
Laguna 26" spiral head planer showing and at least a few words praising
it,................... and I don't got one.
Speaking of print, there is a new book just released on screwdrivers by
Don Wilwol. It has one of my Perfect Handles on the cover. The book is
also peppered with my work all the way though.
At least I think so. He is not sending me a copy. :(
