Today, I added another piece of tooling that cuts down on my fabrication time and increases the quality of my product. It's something I've needed for a while but just have not taken the time to make; today was the day.
So, let's see how intuitive y'all are. The first one to post a comment that correctly describes the intent of this item and how it works will win a free Groovy Tee and sticker, mailed to your door. Of course, you gotta be a registered reader/follower to play :)
Here we go...
The first pic shows the ingredients for the item, can you visualize what it is to become?
Some quick fabrication time elapsed and we have the finished product...a view from the side
from the top, note the lateral slot and the small nub on the inside end.
Bottoms up... an enclosed end cap and a mitered plate to note in this shot. The other end of the tube is open.
I'll use this little guy every month, so those of you that are familiar with what goes on in the shop will have a head start. Have fun, we'll do the big reveal later tonight :)
PS...Hubby, you don't get to play as you heard about it on the phone last night ;)
