    Well, I guess there are benefits to working at a place that makes stuff out of Bosch Structural Aluminum...

    I shared my idea with my shop foreman, and he took it and ran with it.

    I think it turned out fantastic!

    Now I need to make one for him! :eek:


    What do you guys think?
    I may make a few tweeks to the design after I use it for a bit. Mainly the addition of a ruler to assist with setup, but a tape measure works for now.

    I'm thinking about having him price out the components and see if there's a market. Probably not, though.

    This stuff isn't cheap... :gaah:

    Very interesting, looks super professional! Are any of the parts purpose made? I recognize some of the parts from indoor screens for example. Should be possible to find at certain hardware stores.

    jig

    That's actually architectural aluminum used for storefronts and so forth. And your right it is not cheap unless you have a lot of cutoffs.

    Total?
    I bought about a dozen 100' lengths of various colors a few weeks ago and 60 3/4" whistle buckles.
    I've gone through about 300-400' so far and half the buckles.

    I need to check with my seller to see how many sold at the various craft fairs she's been to.

    We prototyped something link this in the past. It was pretty expensive to make.

    It was modeled off our production jig; the PPJ-16.
