Default The Notcher

Hi,
Here is some pictures of the notcher I made and used on the chair project. The wooden one I made for a protype. The first one I made out of aluminum and then one out of steel. Gave the aluminum one to a friend of my that has a welding shop that gave me the aluminum stock. They are adjustable up and down on a dovetail to cut a notch off center. Then I made 2 more, gave one to my son. They are solid mounted and only cut on center. They will all notch up to 2" pipe. I got the idea for them from http://www.medfordtools.com/notchmaster.html

Later,
Dave

Default The Notcher Indexer

Hi,
Here are some sleeves I made to slip over the pipe and you can index some holes if you need to.
Later,
Dave

Very nice Dave! I've wanted to add one to my available tools and now have one to copy.

A set of dimensioned drawings e-mailed to me would be appreciated

Mark

Dave, that is very nice. I have had thoughts about making a notcher off and on but just have never did it. After seeing yours I am glad that I have not built one yet.

I saw that in that thread and wondered where you got that. Now I know!


I have the one from HF. It does the job, but it's no where near that nice and always comes out just a tad off. Nice project for sure.

It would be a much nicer project if all the elements were in one thread so they won't get all scattered.
So I believe I will make it so.

Good looking deal, Dave.

Thanks Cutter,
I didn't think about that. I guess I should have made them replys instead of threads.
Later,
Dave

Neat Project.

In the first post pic #2 there are two versions. Am I correct that the first one is 'fixed' height and the second one allows offset holes?

What kind of sleeve did you use for the drill shaft?
