    Inside of jaws covered with leather to protect work.
    The vice handles are smart. Where do you get them.

    Default Drawer system

    Iím loving this time, DIY projects every day is bliss ... just as long as I donít think about the money Iím not earning. 😫

    Something Iíve been wanting to do foe a while is a drawer system for the back of my Pajero. Had to make do with what materials I had lying around for some parts, and still need some more ďcarpetingĒ to finish the inside of the smaller drawer, but Iím fairly pleased with the outcome. Weighs in at around 20 to 25 kg (guesstimate). Will also add lights that come on automatically when a drawer is opened, and cargo hooks on the deck.

    We do not and have not seen cars rust up here on the highveld since the late 90's. I thought the new dipping process and chemicals used nowadays, totally rid cars of rust in the last decade or two......

    These are the parts for the vise. Handles and even Nuts and Threaded washers and large knobs all made on 3D printer. (ie large bolt with no flat edges)

    And for the skeptical a 14mm thread plastic nut is stronger than most of us. Other parts are CNC milled Masonite coated in Dark Copper Rustoleum Paint.

    There is also a 3D printed special tool to ensure the drill is perpendicular to the wood surface in horizontal and vertical planes.

    Are youprinting the nut and then tapping or are you printing the thread as well. Damn this 3d stuff is awsesome. I just wish I could draw otherwise it would be useless to me. Thats really nice. That rustoleum Ive heard of but didnt know you could buy it in S A. Its good looking stuff.

    Im a bit slow and my school never had technical drawing. I would love to take your offer up.But I just learnt how to wassap so techie gizmos and stuff like computers is definitely not my strong point.

    At long last we got that veggies afspoel wasbak right in the kitchen. We just never got it right, but ja.

    Old brass geyser, top cut off, we polished it with tomato sauce and Chemico, and my panel beater tjommie but some "glaze" on it.

    Looks nice, this time, I think, matches the "old look" copper pipes that's outside the walls, and matches the opwas kamer's pipes and old white trough.

    Very nice. Canít quite make out if you folded over the edge or is it just a very thick copper geyser. Must have been very old. Imagine what that would cost today!

    Stunning project, my wife bought myself and a friend of mine a knife making course at Herbst Knives in Annlin for my birthday. There were 8 of us in total over a two day period. We made folding knives and afterwards both of us were hooked.

    I know what goes into making that, enjoy it to the max, but then, I only made one to date, you must have done many more.
