stripperguy is homeless

Well, not in that sense! But MDB and I have been squatting at my daughter and SIL's house for a while, and will continue to do so until we build a new house.

So it's difficult for me to work on projects with no dedicated space and limited tooling. Even so, my son and my nephew both need paddles for their strippers, and my paddles are approaching 20 years old and showing their age (like I'm not?)

We decided to do a batch of bent shaft paddles. Nothing fancy, pine shafts, cedar blades, phenolic tips, 4 oz glass on the blades. Blades will be 8 x 20, angle about 12 degrees.



I'll try to document as I go along...

I'm sorry you're homeless and I hope it won't be for too much longer, but I'll enjoy learning about how you make bent shaft paddles in the meantime. I've made a couple of double paddles but the bent shafts have always looked a bit harder to execute, and I'm especially interested in how you do the phenolic tip protectors.

Hey Stripperguy,

I like your taper jig- looks a lot safer than the store bought one I have.

I have the same table saw- do you cheat and use 10" blades in it like I do lol.

Good luck with the new house!

I joke about being homeless and squatting over here, it's too easy to hang out here with our daughter, SIL and the grandkids. I just don't have much space for projects.

I'll post some more pics showing the shaft assembly, it's pretty simple. The main design goal is to have ALL of the angle joint within the area that will be glassed. I have some drawings that I whipped up if you want them. The phenolic tips will be epoxied on the bottom of the blades before they're glassed.

Gene?,
That's one of my SIL's table saws... I dunno what size blade he has on it! Most all of my tooling is packed away in one of the rental property garages. I have a 10" Delta, haven't seen it in a year. I think I still have it!
I was gonna buy a taper jig, but decided to just cobble something together quick. It worked just fine for the 60 cuts I needed to make, took about two minutes to make using scrap wood.

A quick photo update. It'll be a while before all of the gluing is finished...
