Miniature Bicycle Scroll Saw Pattern.

 Download the Pattern below

This miniature bicycle is only 4" tall. It was made from 1/8" Baltic birch plywood and 1/8" diameter wooden dowels. I also included a large pattern cut from 1/4" which would be double the size of this small bicycle. 

I did not try to make it functional but it would not take too much effort to correct that. The wheels and pedals do turn but the front fork is stationary and there is no rear drive sprocket. As it is I just intended it as decoration for bicycle fans.

I forgot to mention: 

The brackets on yesterday's shelf pattern can be attached in two directions. The photo I posted with the pattern shows each bracket installed in a different orientation. Of course, I was just demonstrating how they could be installed either way. That's my story and I'm sticking with it. Luckily, no glue was used. :)

This pattern had a high number of day one downloads. I kind of expected that because it is a pattern that many people can use. What did surprise me is that no one pointed out the bracket mixup. You guys are obviously looking forward to warmer weather because normally my email would overflow with an error like that. You guys keep me pretty informed. :)

JET DC-650BK Dust Collector with 30-Micron Bag Filter Kit (708642BK)

I have owned the older model of this Jet dust collector for several years. I have put hundreds of bags of dust through this unit and it has performed well. This is a small dust collector intended for a small shop. It also comes at a price that won't break the bank. $449.99. 

If you are in a garage shop and have a table saw that needs dust collection then the Jet is a reasonable choice. I have blast gates on mine and it is hooked up to my table saw and planner. Those are the two tools in my shop that need dust collection the most.

Dust Collector with Bag Filter Kit
  • QUICK-INSTALL COLLECTION BAG: Emptying and re-attaching is a snap.
  • QUIET OPERATION: 1-hp motor produces just 65 to 70 dB of noise.
  • PORTABILITY: Includes four casters (two rolling and two fixed).
  • FAN-COOLED MOTOR: Permanently lubricated, totally enclosed, and rated for continuous duty.
  • EFFICIENCY: Captures 96% of 30-micron particles.
