A Jensen never made...now Made, Jensen #200 workshop
« on: January 29, 2023, 01:32:23 pm »
Hello fellow Jensen enthusiast.
This Jensen #200 workshop video is dedicated to Howard Shoe, & friend & mentor.
this is a direct replica of a Jensen #200 workshop that although had an advertisement, was never actually produced other than just a mockup model.  I tried to faithfully recreate as much as I could between the model pictured in the flyer and the written text on that same advertisement flyer, they differ quite a bit, there was also some  changes that just had to be made from a common sense aspect, for instance it was not practical to drive the hammer press & shaper tool from the rather large diameter pulleys shown in the pictures, in the Model #100 workshop they used very small drive pulleys (& for good reason) the large pulleys drove those tools at a frantic speed.
as per the flyer, it does have a 20"-line shaft, 3 stanchions, 10 (adjustable) drive pulleys, a 6th tool (grinding table) a brass plate with serialized No. & signed by Tom Sr. on a hardwood (Oak) base. power take-off line shaft.
everything is positioned similar to the picture given (although the clarity is poor)
this replica Model No. 200 workshop is 5.12 1/2 lbs. 25 5/8" long & 7 3/16" wide on an Oak base. the stanchions were supplied by Brent (Parallelmotion) & are the perfect size for this application.
the drill press proved to be the toughest tool to customized, several hours were spent in its modification. 2nd was turning all those pulleys for use, i had to make a special jig (3 total) for the 3 sizes Jensen offered & then be extra careful when turning.

Wow, Bruce, that is amazing!  :o  You never fail to impress with your clever projects!

Excellent workmanship, as usual, and the base looks really nice. Did you put a clear finish on it? My favorite wood for bases.

And, thanks for linking to the original thread concerning the ad. I never knew about this offering from Jensen.

Bruce, you successfully made a working tool setup from another's "dream".  I didn't know that Jensen were even considering doing such a piece years ago.  As always, a thing of beauty from SPS.

Hi Paula, thanks for the nice comments.
Re:base I tried Minwax polyurethane (spray) on the bottom , it took lots of passes and still looked naked, I use/like rustoleum clear spray (3) coats the best, it dries fast, I'm not very patient waiting for polyurethane to dry.
Re: the article, I've been working on and collecting Jensen's for 12 yrs. And never heard of this workshop until Carl posted it.😊

It's wierd that about a week ago I was planning to call you to see if you had made any progress on this project.

You have done a wonderful job on this one Bruce; and a wonderful tribute to Howard (who I am sure would be trying to talk you into making one for him!).

How tall are the Stanchions?

I wish you had called  Charlie,  it would have been nice to have had a chat with you.
The stanchions are approximately 7.1/2" tall. The flyer called for 8" tall, but honestly that would have been to large of scale for the rather smallish Jensen tools imho.
Re:Howard (who I am sure would be trying to talk you into making one for him!).
Yes , & I might have too 😊👍
Howard Shoe & Tom Rumley have been collecting Jensen's for many decades & have a collection of them that is quite extensive.

Great work Bruce, as usual. Glad you could use those stanchions; have a few more if you want to make another one.

Looks great Bruce! Where did you get the stanchions? Those look like they would be great light posts for my PMR power plant.
Best Regards
