Long Board Support / Support pour planche longue

Cette astuce peut être utilisée à différents outils, tels que perceuse à colonne, mortaiseuse, scie à ruban, etc. Soyons imaginatifs !

This trick can be used to different tools, such as drill press, mortiser, band saw, etc. Let’s be imaginative !

Fixer un serre-joint à barre plate à l’établi ou une table de travail adjacente à l’outil.

Attach a flat bar clamp to the workbench or any worktable adjacent to the tool.

Ensuite pincer une équerre triangulaire sur la tige du serre-joint vertical.

Then clamp a speed square to the vertical bar clamp.

Et voilà, simple et efficace.

And here it is, simple and effective.

Pour certaines situations, un serre-joint à mâchoires parallèles seraient tout aussi efficaces.

For particular situations, a parallel jaw bar clamp would be as much effective.

Quelques fois aucun gabarit spécial n’est nécessaire !

Sometime no special jig is required !

    Salut Serge

    Cette fois ci c’est un gabarit mais sans gabarit

    Alors là tu es trop fort !!!

    Perso je fais le tour de mon atelier et cherche ce que je peux superposer pour atteindre la hauteur requise (et cela me prend beaucoup de temps lol !!)

    Au plaisir

      Salut Jack,

      Je faisais exactement la même chose et parfois j’obtenais des résultats du genre ‘Pise’ !
      Maintenant tout est réglé en une minute.

      Au plaisir…

    Serge, I like this tip very much. It’s just what I need for my drill press. This will replace the blocks of wood I normally pile up on my mitre saw table, which is a pain in the you know what!

      No doubt you like it Mark. And I believe you were talking about the lower neck, right ? Ha-ha !
      PS: It’s been a while, where were you ?

        Serge, I have been very busy trying to complete my outdoor deck/gazebo project that I started last year. Last Dec. 6 I got enough done to have the hot tub delivered in the unfinished gazebo and put a temporary roof up with a tarp on it and wired up the tub. The gazebo is a post and beam construction but I only got the portion of the deck that supports the building done and the posts up.

        By the spring, all the posts had twisted and warped so I spent a lot of time getting the top beams up and straightening all the posts. I got all the raters cut with their decorative tails but only got half of them up when I left for Turkey for 5 weeks. I thought I would at least finish the roof when I got home but we had 15 cm. of snow 2 days after I got home, which was the day after I cut the grass! Our weather has been terrible here so once again I put temporary raters up on the unfinished side and covered again with a tarp.

        Every piece of wood I have used has been sanded and stained and my energy level is not what it used to be so it’s taken much longer than I thought it would take. However, I always made time to read all of your posts even though I didn’t respond to them. We have been without power for 3 days after a bad wind storm but tomorrow is going to be nice so I’ll get the winter tires on our vehicles while I can!

          Hi Mark,
          As I can see we were quite busy, working on your project, travelling and dealing with the weather. And for all that I’m forgiving you for not taking the time to comment!! Ha-ha!

          For sure you began quite a huge project, particularly because of all the details you wanted to add to the structure. However the final product should be stunning. I beg you to sending me photos of the final results, perhaps in a decade from now!! Ha-ha!!

          Post are notorious for twisting because most are made from the center of the trees. Left unsupported for winter long is another important factor.

          I also heard on TV that in 2018 Eastern Provinces got their share of rain and winds form down the East coast. I’m sure that sometimes you miss living in Toronto!

          Good luck my friend completing your project, which you will enjoy for many years, particularly in the hot tub enjoying looking at nature. According to the details you mentioned added, this may be ‘the’ project of your live.

            Serge, I have done bigger projects than this in my life but I was 30 years younger with lots more energy and needed very little sleep. But this most likely will be the last big project of my life! I definitely will send you photos, and yes it might be a decade from now!

          • Serge says:

            Mark, you’re a hero for having started such huge project knowing it would take long. You’re a dedicated and patient man buddy.

    L’oeuf de Colomb, merci Serge ! Maintenant, je sais à quoi utiliser ma barre télescopique à plein temps: https://www.manomano.fr/etai/2-x-etais-telescopique-support-barre-tiges-traverse-de-plafond-set-115-290cm-30kg-1370421?model_id=1370421

    • Serge says:

      Très bonne idée pour cette barre télescopique.
      Cette barre me donne des idées !! Merci également.
      Au plaisir…

    As usual, great idea! Why haven’t I thought of that years ago?
    Thank you once again, sir.

    Excellent! I’ll try it on my adjustable-height sawhorses with 2×6 tops. Looks like it will be flexible in multiple situations.
