Print article: "A CNC Pocket Knife"

For those interested, there is a nice article in the current issue of Home Shop Machinist (March/April 2005, page 30) by Steve Archer about how to build a simple folder using a CNC mill and custom jigs. Even if you don't have CNC capability, but you have a mill, the jigs, fixtures and setups are interesting and illustrative, especially for beginners.

Unfortunately, the article is not available online, but you can subscribe to Home Shop Machinist here , or you can pick up a copy at a well-stocked news stand or bookstore, or at your local library. (I am not associated with the magazine in any way other than as a subscriber, so this is not spam.)

I have also posted this message in the General Discussion forum for wider dissemination.

Frank, you don't really need any jigs or fixtures to build a knife using a milling machine, my good friend.

Send me that knife!!!

Good to see you here again.
