Nice job and good looking project. I like that you admitted it wasn't done on the first take. It helps us mere mortals not to get discouraged.
Pretty "cool". I'd suggest using industrial type denatured alcohol (available in hardware stores) for cleaning. The type you show is only 70% alcohol which means it's 30% water.
It doesn't really remove rust unless you use some kind of abrasive with it. It mostly best for old caked on oil and grime and general dirt.
Not really. It mostly for caked on dirt, old oil, grease and grime. I use it with a brush-old toothbrush, kitchen brush, etc.
Sorry, it was "simple green." It's a non-toxic cleaner/degreaser. I buy it by the gallon and dilute it in spray bottles or for washing. I use it to clean bicycle chains, tools, plastics, countertops; great for getting pitch off of circular saw blades etc. After cleaning I rinse with very hot water so the metal will dry and then follow up with appropriate lube for whatever I've cleaned. I've been using it for years.
Nice info. If you have a "gritty" feeling chuck, instead of disassembling it, you might want to try cleaning it first. I use very hot water with Simply Green cleaner and WD-40 to flush out the grit. Then some 3in1 oil to lube it after it's dried off.
Very cool idea. Nicely done. I'd use a Sharpie pen to color in the dots for some contrast. Another idea is that they make a long threaded hex connector that might work, but I think your idea of separate nuts looks better.
Welcome to Bread
Very nice and very professional looking. You give all the steps, but the details that make it so appealing are months of experience in the learning. Good job.
Very nice work. If it wasn't for your hand in the pictures, I would've thought they were full size. I'm impressed.
Pretty cool - I'm thinking up upgrading to LEDs in my shop. BTW, if you use lamp cord for wiring and it's not color coded, look closely and you'll find one wire has a ridge and one is smooth. That way you can tell which to hook to plus and which to negative. It's probably obvious, but it was quite awhile until I noticed it.
Great project. Nice and simple.

My cans don't last that long. A person could write an instructable about the uses of paste wax; I coat my table and band saw tables with it, on my wood planes and other tools, use to lube wooden wheels and other moving parts on toys, as a final finish over lacquer, etc.
