If this topic gets your juices flowing, after watching this video,
the title may be on your lips as the included link at Taylor Tools list these items as “SOLD OUT”! However, don’t despair as there is a link for “Email When Available”… so I assume they are expecting a delivery (on that slow boat from China) sometime in our future.
I purchased a pair of each (152.4mm, 203.2mm, 304.8mm), except the 254mm ones which were out of stock,
Unfortunately I wanted to make a review a few months ago, however, while waiting for the facility here, it seems that others may have been impressed with the video in the meantime and gobbled up Taylor's stock.
I plan to do a blog/video on the build, starting with a SketchUp diagram, if only to help with a scaled drilling template(s)... the plans are not to scale.
While drafting this blog, I went searching for the instructions on Taylor Tools WEB site but looks like it has been deleted... assuming no stock as the message at the end of the video was "CLOSEOUT". But do not despair….
to the rescue… I have uploaded all the plans to my Cloud Storage. Also Peter Parfitt has made a video of making your own using your hardware,
however, I do recommend you make the above modifications (in the top mentioned vide).
Before you freak out as a waste of time, you can assemble your own hardware using threaded rod, this type of Cross Dowel Barrel Nut
You can make your own handles and ferules.
Choose your hole sizes in accordance with your hardware.
I am planning on making a few build episodes based on this SketchUp model,
Feel free to try and beat me to it as it would be an ideal novice project to create a useful shopmade tool… or even a veteran one for those that just don’t have enough clamps… which should be everyone!
If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
