  1. 2018! Seem like just a couple of months ago I was starting up computers hoping they would function after the Y2K Bug scare! @PostalTom showed us a sweet bowl he made for his daughter. It is made from poplar! Check out his description here- @Steve Krumanaker turned an awesome natural edge walnut bowl but it was not without its' problems- Here's Steve's explanation of what happened- @Ksvet06 asked a question about searching the turning forum for specific information. Gang, this just reinforces the need for us all to add tags to our posts. Tags make searching for information much easier and a lot faster. @Gerald is turning more Beads Of Courage boxes and was looking for advice on a special piece of wood- He was inquiring if anyone had turned a vessel with a natural edge "side". Head on over to his post and see if you can offer some help. Probably all of the turners here are currently in the grips of the "Ol' Polar Vortex" (I hate the Weather Channel). Anyway, if you find it's too cold in your shop, pull up a chair, grab a warming beverage and enjoy a few extra videos. Tim Yoder turns a garden gnome (part 1, part 2 linked from the video)- Rick Turns posted a video of regrinding a parting tool to make cleaner cuts- I came across this group of videos from Stuart Batty. I'll give you the link as there are quite a few of them. https://vimeo.com/woodturning/videos/page:1/sort:alphabetical/format:thumbnail And if that's not enough videos to keep you warm, Rick Turns added his list of YouTube videos for the month of December- Finally, I was looking for an idea for a lathe jig and stumbled upon this site- http://www.docgreenwoodturner.com/index.html Lots of neat ideas and some beautiful turnings. Safe turning and keep warm
  2. Dust collection issues

    Hi all. I hope you can provide a bit of advice. I just started using Alumilite full time in my shop. Love casting with it, love turning it, but my dust collection system hates it. I have an Oneida Dust Deputy with its own dedicated shop vac. Up until this point the system worked flawlessly, everything in the bucket and little into the shop vac itself. I was going to build a shop vac silencing box last weekend and took the system apart to measure the shop vac. I opened it up and was surprised to find it full of long, thin ribbons of Alumilite. So I set the system back up and did some testing and found that the ribbons are so light they just spin at the top of the dust deputy and eventually find their way into the shop vac vice falling into the bucket. Of course I did what any respectable tinkerer would do and attempted to fix it. I found some screen door material and put it over the center suction of the dust deputy and voila! No more ribbons in the shop vac. Now they gather on the mesh and clog the suction limiting the suction at the point of collection (lathe). So now I have to stop every 5 minutes or so, stop the shop vac, smack the dust deputy (or worse, take it apart again) to clean it, then go back to work. Am I the only one having issues like this? Wood, acrylic, and everything else works as intended. Alumilite seems to be so light and thin that it just goes right up the top suction and out to the shop vac.
  3. Christmas without a father is not something most folks can begin to imagine. No Dad for a kid is tough enough but at Christmas it is heartbreaking. I know. We cannot allow these kids to have anything less than a super Christmas. With a little over 3 weeks to go, we still need $500 to meet our goal. Please head over to our raffle and give what your heart says. http://thepatriotwoodworker.com/topic/21082-the-patriot-woodworkers-with-op-ward-57-adopt-a-gold-star-family-for-the-holidays-2017/ On another matter, our administrative staff would really appreciate it if you could add tags to your post topics. It makes it easier for site users to search for information. I have gone back one year and added tags to all of the Turner Forum topics where tags were missing. If you see something I tagged incorrectly, please feel free to change it. Just today we had an excellent question posted by @Lissa Hall. Lissa's question is about which turning tools should a new turner purchase. We've all been there and most of us have made mistakes in those purchases. Please head over to Lissa's post and give her/us your ideas and opinions. This is a great topic for discussion so let's keep it going- @Steve Krumanaker created a sweet little puzzle- a cube within a cube- Check out his post and the discussion about how this was done! With Christmas just 4 weeks away, here are two videos from Carl Jacobson where he turns some neat seasonal items that would make awesome gifts. A turned Santa- And some Gnome Christmas Carolers- Check out the Easy Wood Tools he is using!! Tim Yoder is also in the Christmas spirit. This is a two part video where he creates a mixed medium Christmas angel- Notice the patent date on the one on the left. At one time these blue (and green) glass insulators were sought after collectibles- at least around here. I have been working on some Christmas gifts myself. Highchair is finished and delivered tonight. I have two "cake platters" started. This is the top of one- I'll use acrylic paint to highlight the texturing. Safe turning
  4. Glue question

    OK as a lot of you may know, I am a huge fan of Titebond and its family of glues. I use it quite a bit when I am making pieces to turn, especially for the tops I make. This does not require a lot of glue though, so the glue sits around for an extended period of time, which causes it to age and get clumpy, or at the very least, thicker than it was when I bought it. Can you add anything to the glue like say water, to get it flowing again without destroying the glue properties?? Thanks.
