You do have to lightly slam them currently. They have 3 TipOn models for different weight drawers. These are a little light right now until loaded and until I get the solid fronts on them. If you push them closed there is a slight amount of back pressure to get past the reset of the TipOn.

If they have pulls on the drawer and you just pull open the drawer like normal, the TipOn is not activated and then it self closes like a regular Tandem without the resistance of the TipOn.

Makes sense. Loading the drawer will give it some inertia. That would help it get by the resistance of the Tipon mechanism.

I did the ones rated for 44-88lbs. These drawers are 32” wide and will have solid 3/4" oak fronts. I used Salice glides on the last ones I did and they just barely kicked them open and didn't want that problem again.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


Had to fix a bastardized set of dresser drawers. My clients mom thought it would be a good idea to put ball and claw legs onto the dresser. I assume it had some type of bun foot on the front, probably about 6-8" long. So at one time they cut the bun foot off and put the ball and claw legs on.

I'm not sure who put them on backwards the mom or the woodworker commissioned to repair it after the moving company screwed it up. Either way I was told the legs were on backwards. The front legs needed to be on the back and vice versa.

So I didn't have a thin kerf saw so I went out and got a Japanese Razor Saw which has a .02" kerf and sawed the legs off.



Then I measured the stubs and one of them was a 1/4" shorter than the rest. The legs were close to about the same size as each other, one was about 1/8" longer, the wrong one.

So I took my belt sander and got three of the to the same length and the other shorter one I just left. I corrected it for the slight angled cut, but that was all.

That was yesterday. Wanted to let this filter through my brain overnight so I could come up with some sort of attack to put these back on.

So this morning I resquared the top of the legs back up as the saw made them uneven. And I think the other guy also didn't do such a great job of squaring them up. When I did it I made sure that I made one of the rear legs 1/16" longer to take up the stubbiness of that post the leg would be attached too.

Drilled a shallow 3/8" hole in the center of the leg, the previous dowel wasn't even close. Then I drilled a 1/4" hole about 1/2" deep and I put a dowel center finder into the hole and put the leg in place and gave it a whack. This put a corresponding dimple in the leg where I would drill the hole.

I free handed the holes in the dresser. Started with a 1/4" hole and went up through the bits 1/16" at a time til I got to the last row where I went up 1/64" at a time. Did this to try to keep the hole from wandering much, they always do. I was shooting for a 5/8" hole about 1 1/2" deep.

I made a jig for my drill press to do the legs. Did the same thing on the drill press but skipped a lot of bits because it was more stable and the jig made it square.

You can see otherS were here before me because of the two different set of dowel holes, mine make the third.



This was the first one I did on the drill press. I used two squares taped to the sides to make it square. Wasn't very stable and chewed up the entry hole a bit. That's when I decided to make that jig.



Made my own 5/8" dowel and put 2 saw kerfs in them to let glue escape as it was pushed into the hole.



Glued the top set of legs on first and then worked the holes for the rear legs as they dried.



Here's the glue up of the rear legs. Front and rear required different clamping methods because of access.



Took it out of the clamps and stood it up. Nice and stable, so I got the leg lengths right.



And now I have to do a bit of finishing on the parts that I had to remove some wood from.

And now the touching up is complete. Came out nice. The color stain I had was damn close. Gotta love that Mohawk Precat Lacquer Spray. I started out with satin and I think it was a bit shiny. Last coat was done with a matt sheen. Really can't tell til it dries for a day or so when the true sheen comes out.

That's a lot of gutter. At least you could see your work in action with the rain.

Had to take the old gutter and leaders down too. I still love to see them in action. Even after doing this for so long.

Yup, but usually decorative (not just a block) and capped with same material in most cases...

Yup, it's called a foot block because that's where everyone puts a foot when leaning on the rails.

Finished this up a few weeks ago. This is just the vanity I made and Leo made the drawer. Beautiful work Leo!
I'll get some pics of the rest of the powder room next time I'm back.

Wall tile border, wainscot, crown molding, new paint, etc.

She wanted something that looked old. Her cleaning lady mentioned making it out of pallet wood and she liked that idea...so I knew she really wanted something rustic.

I found some of the nastiest, dirtiest poplar with worm and bug holes at the lumber yard. Stuff I wouldn't use to make a chicken coup. Didn't do a thing to it except cut it and join in together. The cabinet is made from 3/4" birch but everything seen is this poplar

She loved it. I put a coat of boiled linseed oil to darken it up.
Made a mirror to match...all lap joints on the joinery...simple and old construction.
