Blade Holder

Post by Robert Beverly » Thu Jul 18, 2013 5:51 pm

Hey

Anybody know who got Rick's stash on these?.....

I would rather buy them rather than tool up to cast...

Thanks

Robert

Castings you say? I've figured it for a straight forward mill and turn job. I've been planning on making a set of small.. medium and large for a while now. But been using pieces of dowel rod slit on the end with copper tie wire and some glue to hold blades.
Sure I paint thing for my amusement and then offer them for sale. A brushslinger could whither en die from lack of creativity in this plastic town my horse threw a shoe in. :shock:

I had one of those years ago and I remember the blade was always loose in the holder. Also you could only use it with a whole blade. Here is a photo of what I've been using for years.

Thanks for the input all....

Tyler...the tips are cast but if you can tool up and cut them, I would be interested in some....

Roderick, I just modified mine and they are now quite snug...but do use the xacto holders for finite work...as you demonstrate.

Well here is a working prototype of my designed blade holder.

Seem to hold well both small pieces as well as whole blades. I placed some masking tape down and used the tool to remove it, doing some with both blades... work very well.

Aluminum construction.
Will make a couple of refinements as this was a proof of concept to see if my idea would work and it does. 8).

So it's coming along... and I'll be glad to make some for those who would like one or two.

So let me know what you think.

Hello Tim

Yes...if your device holds the blade, I would definitely be interested in a dozen or more...:)

I have pics of this holder we have and like it a lot for larger applications...I know Roderick has his method for fine trim work and it is perfect for that when no real power is needed.

Just let me know.

Thanks

Robert

Roderick

I did assume...but the larger jaw helps to hold the entire blade so that I can gut pretty fast...

as there are other applications I use them for as well ..but i agree , the modified xacto works well for my gold work.

Thanks Tim....

I have often pondered what I would do without and it immediately points me into the direction of making some as their purpose has become more and more important to my work.

Thanks
Robert

Tim

Gotta tell ya....YOU DA MAN!

My foreman came in laughing after seeing my pile of handles on my desk...as the art department was turned upside down looking for one of these handles one day a few weeks ago, 1 of only two I had and have threatened to fire anyone who used them without my knowledge!

As most know, I like my toys but this little guy has become integral in my work and I pulled one of your handles out and it is a HUGE improvement on the ones I got from Rick! These are great!

THANKS for making them and move forward with the new request....

Robert
