Adjustable Flashlight Stand Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download the Pattern Below

I saw someone with a flashlight stand. That looked like something worth having so I designed one. I thought I might as well make a pattern out of it so that is the pattern post for today.

This stand is not for very large flashlights. The one in the photo is 7" long. It is rather heavy at almost .75lbs.

The pattern has three different size yokes. 1.5", 1.25", and 1" opening. You can play around with the size of the opening if needed. 

You could also change the length of the base if you needed a taller stand.

This is the only rubber band I had. It is too thin. I will add a 1/4" band as soon as I find one. It needs to be just a little stronger. I will also keep a couple of extra rubber bands on the base just incase one breaks.

You will need a 3/4" thick board, 1/4" diameter dowel, rubber band, and 3" bolt with a wing nut. You can use a normal nut if you like. Once you get the yoke snug you don't need to tighten the bolt until it loosens up over time. The wing nut just allows you to tighten without a wrench.

Skilled Craftsmen Handle a Dangerous Project with Expert Technique.

This video has nothing to do with the scroll saw. 

I have always enjoyed watching skilled craftsmen work. If I am at a craft show and the glassblower is working, I will stand there watching until my wife grabs me. The type of craft is almost irrelevant. I am just fascinated with skill.

This is a video that got my attention simply because these men and women are skilled to the point that they make this dangerous and challenging job look easy. This log probably weighs over 2,000 lbs. Maybe way over. They turn a hallow vase on their DIY two-speed lathe. 

I have used a lathe just enough to know that you don't want to 2,000lb log coming off the lathe. Steel-toed boots are not going to help much. :)

I have no particular reason for sharing this video. I just found it interesting and thought some of you may like it also. The video is almost half an hour long so if you have time take a look.
