  1. Turning Tool Deflector

    I like the carbon steel tools, but they didn't have a dust/chip deflector. Most of it hit me and my mask/face shield. My solution was to use goop and attach a super magnet on the tool. Then I got a squeeze type paper clip, (larger example shown) removed the outer finger clamps and goop a small piece of steel to it. Then goop in a piece of plexiglass. It is on an angle and perfect for deflecting. If there is a drawback it is that the magnet attracts other things too, but not much of a problem. I have magnets on all my carbon steel turning tools. The shield quickly goes from tool to tool.
  2. Has anyone here had any experience repairing small chips in granite counter tops? I have a corner that is missing about a 1/4" section off the top corner. It's rough to the touch, not too noticeable, but it needs to be repaired, how do I repair this? Thanks guys!
  3. A long time ago, in a galaxy far fa....oh, wrong track. Maybe a couple years back, in a forum that shall be nameless, Ralph raised the question about how to see the cut line on a bandsaw, when the dust/chips kept collecting on the line marks. I thought at the time that LED lights would help. They did, a little, but not enough. I then looked into a chip blower setup, but found that BS either had them or not, depending on how the motor housing is configured (to bleed off vent air). Mine don't, so I tried Plan C: install something. Turned out too expensive, I couldn't find the right parts, etc, and I gave up. New galaxy: W-smith tips show a product called Loc-Line, a hard plastic channel, bendable, nozzles, do-able. So I went with it: I got the tee (insert x insert x NPT) at HD for $5; Loc-line (the blue and orange), $8 (amazon), hose $13 (a), shutoff valve $3 (a). Had to get a F/F coupling for a few bucks. Voila, per W-S idea, blue block has magnets on the back, stick to both BS and drillpress. Also is handy for just blowing off the tools. Neat-nick (OCS lives on!). I didn't need a pressure regulator (valve does that). The Loc-line kit comes with three different nozzles, which i'll have to try (I suspect air consumption will be important). Not shown, but turns out needed: Loc-line pliers ($11 from Am). Of course, already had the air hose passin' thru. It be slick.
  4. My latest Rube

    I have a Jet mini and wanted to use a vac to help with the saw dust problem. However I have very limited space. I got some cutting board plastic and some quarter inch styrofoam from the dollar store. I used some left over tape from a furnace duct job. The kind that has real aluminum. I sized it for my limited area and put in a support with an adjusting clamp. It turned out OK and I am anxious to start a new projedt.
