  1. Provential WCO 280

    Bought some of these kits from a company named Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. They sat in a drawer for almost 15 years. When I pulled them out, I found that this company seems to be out of business. You suggested I call Berea Hardwood, and they did send some bushings and some Parker refills for the old kits. I have run into a problem: How do I install the refill? It doesn't seem to fit into the part I believe to be the correct one. I pulled another kit I have in stock, and the refill is the same as the one in the kit. It seems that it might have to be pressed into the pen part, but I am afraid that is going to ruin the point. Anybody turned one of these pens; if so, do you have any suggestions? Thanks!
  2. You guys helped me find pen parts from Berea Hardwoods, Now, if instructs says to press parts into wooden pen parts, do you use super glue on them?
  3. Skew Angle

    I watched the video on proper use of the skew chisel (lew posted) and noticed how he had his sharpened with a slight curve, rather than a straight edge. I haven't see the curve before and it looks like a better way. I don't use the skew much, when I first started I ruined things, didn't know how to properly use it. Is your skew edge curved?
  4. Colorply

    Wondering if anyone has tried making kits such as bottle openers , pizza cutter, ice cream scoop from color ply. My thinking is the drilling the end for the mounting bolt would not be as strong as solid wood. Has anyone had experience with this or have thoughts?
  5. New Modern Turning Apron

    My wife surprised me with a brand new leather turning coat. A modern design with a smart phone pocket with flap cover. Velcro behind the neck fastener and expandable straps in the rear. Fits nice and works great NO, I didn't tell her
  6. 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.
  7. I've Been In The Scraps Again

    I hate to toss scraps of exotic wood and usually find some use for it. I just kept goofing with the pieces and glueing. I ended out with that block that I turned to what you see
  8. Need Help With Pen Kits

    About 15 yrs ago, I bought about 100 pen kits, all different kinds, from Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. I finally got around to wanting to make some pens, but I do not have instructions for any of them. Has anybody heard from this company lately? I can't find them on the internet, and Wood Craft Supplies has not wanted to help me with the problem. The particular kit I am trying to work with is WCO 280 Provential Twist Pen. Anybody got any instructions or know where I can obtain them? There is a long list of kits on Woodcraft.com, but they do not show pics unless you click on each one, and it looks like there must be 100 different kits! Thanks!
  9. Then in a mere tiny instant it all went to pieces Read it. Remember it http://lynneyamaguchi.com/index.php/2014/10/06/my-tale-of-survival/
  10. sphere within a sphere

    any one know of a good instructional on this? Some would call it Chinese Balls . I know it's possible there are even special tools for it that look weird but the only way I could pull it off is the band saw box trick where a thin kerf becomes a reassembly glueline.
  11. yup I got some ideas about bending and turning. . First though is a big bowl I started and then put away to dry and it warped so badly that I can't turn it right. So I'm going to try to unwarp it. The box is huge 24" on the side but it's knock down the clamps are just so I can carry it around to get some paint on it. The paint is just so i can see my magic marker well . HERE it is collapsed for storage
  12. Experimenting With Epoxy

    I got some ideas about using 5 minute epoxy and glitter. I made some mistakes, but learned a lot in the process. You can see the upper ring. It looked really good until I tried something else to smooth it. I think I am going to try again, I have a couple more things I want to try
  13. The second cryptex

    This is the second cryptex I've finished. I re wrote the border file and I like this look much better. This one is a five ring code as I'm going to use it for the demo at our next meeting of the NorthEast Indiana Turners and Chiselers(NEITC). Anyone care to guess what is the code?? The first one actually works smoother, I didn't dry fit the rings before gluing it up and I should have. Oh well, someone said in another thread, it's how we grow. Steve
  14. chopping block bowl

    This is truly a magnificent bowl, there is so much waste of wood. I saw a video where a guy used a curved cutter to remove and save the center wood to make smaller bowls.
  15. Somehow I missed this in yesterday's "Wisdom" Click on the image for more information!
  16. some gozillion years ago I was given a twin state Sgt Welsh rotary vein vacuum pump that fell of a truck. No really it fell off the truck & got damaged ( just the belt shroud) but there was an insurance claim and this one was unclaimed so the shipper gave it to me. And a decade or so later I'm finally trying to put it to use. I got a small air tank and welded bungs to it so I can run 1" piping to it. It is the vacuum reservoir in case of power failure. Then mounted it and the pump together around a corner on the other side of a wall and ran 1" copper to the lathe with a parker needle valve and a vacuum gauge and LOOKY MA I can hold a great vacuum and even lower the hold to what ever HG I want with the needle valve . AND When I shut it off it holds the vacuum for a good long time. The reason for the large piping is over a long run ya gotta have a big pipe a small one just doesn't work well
  17. First for me

    Needed a hollow form to display flowers in new booth . Had a piece of spaulted magnolia so started on it . The first for me is to turn a hollow form from beginning to parting off on one day....actually 2.5 hours.
  18. Blank prep

    This is what I have worked on since Tuesday . This is only two cut off a beech log about 20 foot long. Then there was little cherry and what we think may be hickory. Then I did a first turn on a cherry vase. Plan is to carve this vase to look like a flower bloom
  19. Longworth chuck

    I have never posted into this Wood Turners area, so I guess this is a first. A friend asked me to cut him a 16" Longworth chuck so today I tested my drawing that I did in Fusion 360 by cutting a 12" chuck. Looks like it came out just fine so I thought I would offer them in our Etsy shop. You can click on the link in my signature and see the offering but I didn't want to post a link like I was pushing it, just thought you lathe guys might want to see this - I used to turn a fair amount and still have my Oliver 8' bed lathe but it's not being used 'cause it's 3 phase and I don't have time to do any turning anyway. So if y'all see something in the Etsy listing that doesn't look right or that I have worded incorrectly I would appreciate a heads up. Thanks! David
  20. First box

    Made my first lidded box. It is salted maple. It is around 5.5 inches wide a 4 inches high. The only finish I put on was Shellawax.
  21. Sanders for turners

    These look really handy. Any one use them? http://vinceswoodnwonders.com/palm-sanders-and-sanding-paddles/
  22. turned this today. will give it away.
  23. Segmented bowl

    I don't do turning, but have some friends that do. Here is a recent one that one top honors at the local Woodcraft store. In the last couple years, he's gotten into segmented turning and has some neat fixtures to help glue them up. The ghostly stool is a reflection in the glass display case.
  24. Made this today. Oak, cherry, lacewood and walnut, cherry, oak. Present for a friend. House warming gift for his new place.
