    If you've built any other homemade tools, we'd love to see them. Please share them by posting directly in the Homemade Tools subforum. We'll add each one to the database, as well as to your builder page on the site.

    Non-tool items may be shared in the Not a Tool, but Homemade subforum.


    Thanks Champy for the submission! I've added your Champytool to our Woodworking category, as well as to your builder page: Champy's Homemade Tools. Your receipt:

    Hi Ken, my english is not good at all, but I try to do my best...

    I've some others 'home made' machines to show, if you want.

    First, a rotative 'up and down' sander, same as some commercial article, but with a large working area, and cheaper... :
    See demos here :

    Then a 'sanding machine' (in french, it could be a translation of 'calibrator', but I don't know the english word for it). It makes a 1/10 mm accuracy width (down to 0.2 mm !):
    See demos here :

    Another one, my next machine, not already finished, but with a lot of incredible abilities (linear, angular, concave and convex working, and so on...)
    I will make a video when in order, but I guess it will be the most capable machine never built (since routers exist...).

    Friendly yours, Champy
