    The motor was just some old gear motor someone was throwing away. It's 24v but I am running it from 15v and less. The magnet is a "rare earth" one I picked up from a place that no longer exists. IIRC it is around 3/4" OD and 1/2" thick.

    It's inside the aluminum part that mounts to the motor shaft below the steel mandrel (with heat shrink tubing on the tip for traction).

    When I first tried it out it cut a straight like like this ~~~~~ because there was runout in the motor shaft, so I added the bearing over the aluminum part and all is well.

    Went 20 years without it, can't imagine what I would have built by know with it early on. A Handyauto torch is nice for some things, a track torch for others but the pantograph is the most helpfull for the things I have done.

    yeah, photobucket used to have a frame their URL links were in that looked kind of 35mm so you could tell it was a video, now you just have to tell people to click on the photo.

    The zigzag pattern was for some targets I built.

    These are videos too.

    How it works




    Edit you can see the difference with old uploaded photobucket videos

    When you set it up in a match you block the bottom part, so the shooter is presented with this.

    Didn't make this one but did restore it and change the gauge.

    It was originally made to check corner weights on race cars.

    The round part is exactly 1 square inch surface area filled with oil where the gauge is threaded into. Incert a lever into the hole and lift to level. Gauge shows pounds per square inch.

    Pretty handy scale and super simple. Use mostly for trailers and such.

    From left to right.

    A 13/16 socket welded to the back side of a 7/8 socket so you always have the right size to remove lugnuts. You have to use it with a short extension.

    Using a bolt welded to a socket to make an Allen wrench, the one shown was built instead of making a 24" 22mm allen wrench that cost $200 from Yamaha.

    The last one is a bent wrench, that has a socket modified like the allen one next to it to remove Ford oil pressure senders, that they mount in places where you can't get to them. Think of it as a deep crows foot. The radiator hose and big ziptie is to hold the new one in place to install it.

    These are another two that get used a lot.

    12" disk sander from an old 3/4 hp motor 3/8" aluminum and other scrap.

    And one even the most budget minded guy will like, 1'x42" belt sander made from an old clothes dryer motor. The belt even runs where the dryer belt did, with idler pully. The top wheel is from an old roller skate and the stand was borrowed from a dead John Deere hay bailer.

    Great stuff, jwmorris. I like the 2 sockets for lugnuts and the 1" belt sander. Thanks for posting them.

    Hydraulic press out of 6" channel iron with homemade press brake, note the drilled bolt for an easy way to release pressure.

    A 2" receiver mount for a bench vice so you have one where you need it.
