Small Machined Things

The original plastic timer knob cracked. The shaft coming out of the timer is an unusual 3/16" diameter D-profile. Instead of buying another one that would crack in three years, I machined one of white delrin. Stainless setscrew.

Below is a picture of the second operation on the drawer knobs. They will be installed soon.

And some machining-area ventilation I rigged together. The air is still in the basement, which does not go well with machining and tool repair. If I open the door the air blows inwards along with mosquitoes. This is the solution:

Here is a pretty humble V-block made mostly with hacksaw and file. It holds 1/4" shank boring tools in the Taig toolpost at the correct elevation.
