I suppose I could depress myself by doing the math and figuring out how much money I saved and then convert that into an hourly wage

LOL

Nice knobs? Sounds wrong saying that but i like the design.

Well if nothing else it kept you busy and off the streets.

When I have to fix artwork that people send me for a particular job, I charge $60.00 an hour and based on that rate it would have been $7.50 a knob. ;)

Very nice. Although if you have time to be making knobs, you have time to keep your work bench moving along... ;)

I was moving things around my shop yesterday, I had my Longworth chuck in my hand that's when I realized why you were  making those knobs. Hope to see more of your build, it was fun when I built mine.

After I completed my Longworth chuck the action wasn't very smooth so I sanded plywood to 320 even slots, paste waxed every nook and cranny slots and all put 3 nylon washers on each bumper assembly between knobs and disk, between disks, between bumper and disk and between disks on center bolt once I did that that the action was smooth as glass.

I'm going to have to try this mines not to smooth at the moment.

Picked them all up at auction for cheap when a cabinet maker downsized their shop. Not pictured are 4 more 1000 count boxes of each size.
