First attempt making a two arms Carp net

Post by Evert van der Plas »

Hi Gents
After a long time thinking how to make the spread block parts for a two arms landing net i finally made it.
The parts are difficult to make without a milling machine but with a few modifications on my lathe and with the use off a self-made part for the use of a 3 claw chuck that i have on my lathe i made it possible to make these parts.
Image
First i made the holes in a long aluminium flat bar and saw the parts out
Image
Made a 19mm hole with a round head end mill to put it in a height transport that i bough special for my lathe after a few modifications i was able to use it very well
Image
Image
Now i have the T piece that can be turned on the lathe, the problem was that i have a 3 jaw chuck and have to solve the problem with a piece that i made to attach the T piece on to turn it on the lathe
Image
Image
Image
i don't have a miling machine so i drilled two holes in it to make the slots, this way i did not have to file much, saw them out and the rest i did with a file :-)
Image
made two holes for the bolts with thread on both sides
Image
wood from my old table was good enough for the spreader to make and burned a little kingfisher on it
Image
Image
All the parts i made
Image
Here it is ready for a few arms and pole
Image
With this the net is almost finished and again i learned a lot from this project and only can be better with the next one i going to make, what i try to say that there is always a way to make things if you want

Very impressive Evert, even more so as you dont have a mill. I like your clamp on the carriage :clap:
My wife has an English Longbow that I keep eyeing up as a potential source of arms for a landing net project but I am certain that wont be happening for a very long time.
