My penholder :)
I made it during my apprenticeship and kept it (^-^)
It was a great exercise as the instructor told us to weld 2 pieces together to form the letter L then after finishing this task he told us to make a quadratic tube then he gave us the bottom and told us to finish our penholder and to take it home :D
The welds are not as good as those of a welder but I like them :D
Especially the one that looks like a wave (2nd photo from the bottom :) :3
The material it is made from is 2 mm St33 steel plate :)
I left the surface untreated because I liked to see the welds and the colour of the steel and how it changed over the years.
The rubber feet are a good example for the German proverb “Nichts hält so lange wie ein Provisorium” (Nothing lasts as long as a temporary solution) :D
I made these in a rush but since I seldom look at its bottom I forget about it soon after I think about making new ones (^-^;)
I kept the sign from the time I woke up and had 100 followers :D
It was weird I had about 20 followers for some month and suddenly over a weekend their numbers exploded .*°\(^-^)/°*.
I really enjoy writing this blog even though I feel like I’m a little sloppy because most of the time I don’t proof read my articles (^-^;)
Things that happened and upcoming events :)
Most of my projects are on halt now because I need to focus on my exams and lab reports but vacations are near so I will be more active in about 2 weeks.
My router gave up today (; _ ;)
Also it scared me really good because the metal casting that formed a part of the housing broke, got caught by the spindle of the router and sent shards of the router bit and the housing flying through the workshop (>_<;)
Fortunately I wore an apron and safety glasses so I only got a few scratches :)
The router was a cheap “plunge” router that could only be used as a fixed base router :D
The router bit was a really good one though (>_<;)
I think that a router is a great tool for repetitive tasks :)
Most things I do are one off jobs though so I use hand tools most of the time (^-^)
Anyway I wish all of you a great new week and sturdy routers (^-^)/
