Hi,
Thanks for all the great creations in our previous, salmon leaping, challenge.

 

This week, we start with an old workbench. What story can you tell us with this?

The “rules”:

  • Use the starter image as at least part of your own image entry.
  • Anything goes, as long as it meets the forum rules on decency, copyright, etc.
  • Anyone, and everyone, is welcome to have a go, whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert. This is not just for our forum “regulars”.
  • There are no prizes apart from the chance to practice, show off your skills, or bring a bit of humour and fun. Don't be shy, join in and have a go!
  • The starter image is made available for you to use in this forum challenge only.

 

To download the image,  hover over the image and click on the circle with the arrows at the top right.

Then, when the image opens in its own window, right click and choose “Save Image As/Save Target As” (or similar depending on your browser).

When posting back your image — please use the blue reply button in this first post and use the 'Insert Photos' icon at the top of the reply box. If posting a comment on someone else’s entry, then please use the grey reply button next to their image post.

 

Have fun!

 

Dave

I modelled it in 2019 Jane, it has been lying around untouched on the disk since - hence a bit of rust 🙂

Wow, Dave.  This is my favourite starter image for a very long time, and another amazing render.  I especially like the 'Precision Square'  I bought one just like that from Bangood, and the inside and outsides were not even parallel, yet alone square. Note: It is possible to rotate the inside and outside squares to each other and still be relatively accurate, but it is not a good look, and does not inspire confidence.  In this case, I can say for sure that the 'Precission Square' was not accurate.

 

II think the engineering square is a Moore & Write, and I tested that against a Starrett and they showed to gap.  The gap below is not huge, but it certainly isn't 'precise'.  I used the planner because it has a ground cast surface.  I did clear the sawdust from under the squares btw.

I set up the panel saw at my Menz Shed a few weeks ago, using a framing square that belonged to the shed.  When I double checked with a DTI it was miles out.  I am talking a full degree!  I looked around and found several more squares, and they were all hopeless.  I have at least a dozen different squares at home, and I found that one of my big woodworking quares was not great.  Way better than the Shed's though.  My framing squares were pretty good, and my engineering squares all as near spot on as makes no difference.  

 

OK, now I need an idea for this 🙂

Thanks Trevor, it is an issue if you get two 'precision' measuring tools and find they are different. Do you go for best of three? 🙂  I suppose you could check them by marking out a square and checking the diagonals, but you can't really adjust the one piece square.

In my youth I took the gearbox out of a car to replace the clutch. On re-assembly, I had one bolt and one hole left. Sounds good but the bolt was too long for the hole. Back around them all looking for a short bolt in a deep hole! 🙂
