Workshop update – pen organisation and disassembly
Workshop update – pen organisation and disassembly.
Have been turning some different pens recently and found that I didn’t know what blanks I had worked on; the plastic drawers as below are good to keep kits and bushings in but also including blanks was a bit messy.
I saw something similar the the stand below on Instagram and thought it was good as you can see the quantity for each type. Looks a bit fuller now plus I need to add additional categories; a bit scary seeing all the types of kits and bushings I have.
Unfortunately now I have a problem with keeping track of the kits I have as I have more pen types than drawers available.
A while ago I bought a punch set to disassemble pens but found that I couldn’t hold the pens tight enough to remove but not too tight that would damage them.
Just received this clamp from PSI to hold blanks when disassembling, works great.
I am an accountant who uses woodwork as a way to escape computers. I work in the back half of a tandem garage under the house; effectively a basement that also houses my wife’s car. I have a reasonable set of tools and am getting more into hand tools, mainly due to the lack of noise and dust minimization. I live in Sydney Australia and am a active member of The Shire Woodworking Club, Cubby House Turners & Woodies Inc and The Traditional Tools Group Inc Why Hugo’s Woodshop? All decent website options with Gary were taken so I had to look for something else! Hugo is our 3 year old Ragdoll cat who is very nosy and likes investigating the garage / workshop:
