  7. Dust collection issues

    Member @Cliff built a dust/chip collector for his lathe. I think his dust collector is so powerful he needs to wear a harness, anchored into the wall, to keep from being drawn in
  8. Dust collection issues

    I'm lucky in that way. My shop is in the basement and the lathe is off in a corner area. I can usually just clean at the end of the day, except when turning bowls- man, they make a pile of shavings!

  10. Dust collection issues

    I haven't turned many acrylic items. I planned on trying my hand at Alumilite casting/turning in the near future. Truthfully, I don't attempt to use my dust collection system for the lathe shavings/chips. I found my collection setup wasn't efficient enough in collecting the chips and any collection hood seemed to get in the way. I do use the collector when I sand on the lathe.
  11. Online calculators for just about anything dealing with construction.

    I Love It! Did you use one of those "pencil sharpener" tenon devices on a drill for making the tenons?

    Both are really nice, Dale! I like the chalk idea!
