    Our Patriot turners were really active this past week with more projects, questions and ideas! @Ron Altier's wife got him a really nice turner's smock. I'm pretty sure the other turners were jealous considering the ribbing he took. I think it will provide great protection from flying chips (or sparks)! Some of the good natured comments are at- Ron also posted a neat little "chip deflector" that he made. The simple design lends itself to virtually any tool manufacturer. Ron explains how he made this in his post- Ron was having trouble with his lathe tailstock not locking securely. Many of our members offered suggestions and ideas. Ron was able to devise a way to repair the problem. The following two threads discuss the problem and what Ron did to get it fixed- @Cliff lamented about some roadside wood treasures he managed to pickup. Unfortunately, the tree held a few unpleasant surprises. @Gene Howe sent me a link to an article by Mr. Davide Reed Smith. In this particular how-to, Mr. Smith provides detailed instructions on how to make pen turning jaws for a 4 jaw chuck. Follow this link for the complete tutorial- http://davidreedsmith.com/Articles/WoodAuxJaws/WoodAuxJaws.htm @Steve Krumanaker has made a few more of his Cryptex Boxes. Steve's combination of turning and laser engraving produces fantastic results. See Steve's post for more images and information on the engraved symbols- @Gerald posed a question about using "colorply" for handles in kit type projects (i.e. bottle openers). Several of our members offered their thoughts and ideas- Rick Turns posted his March list of YouTube woodturning videos- The Woodturning OnLine newsletter came this week. There are some interesting articles and a video from Mr. Richard Raffan on "Understanding Catches". The newsletter can be found at- http://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php Here's the video- Carl Jacobson turns a resin/burl piece in his mobile shop. Check out the Easy Wood Tools and chuck! ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools) The EWT tools make turning resin a breeze. The curls just fly off of the piece! Safe turning

    Face book doesn't have my data. On FB I am a Russian Alt. They tried to check me once demanded a state or Federal ID so I photoshopped one and that was that. Stupid moronic leftists.

    Got 'R Home

    it's off the trailer and inside out of the weather Not in it's slated final location but in. That location is down 30 feet one step down turn a corner then up a 6" step down another 25 feet turn a corner and down another 20 or so feet then up against a wall. Come on by, bring your strong sons. Beer Whisky and pretzels. https://photos.smugmug.com/Rockwell-14-x-40-lathe/i-RFDXVMK/0/e66373ff/1920/20180411_141750-1920.mp4

    Big Scteen Tv 1950

    Dad wouldn't buy a TV until the color ones were affordable. Then he watched old B&W Gunsmoke reruns. We only got 3 channels. Had to rotate the antenna for each one. For a while, only one broadcasted in color.

    I Bet Just Guessing,

    Nah, I just took your 5" and extrapolated. The "give or take" should cover such contingencies.

    We had a 2 story house with probably a 10/12 pitch so we had a pole that ran down the side of the house...one of us boys had to go out and rotate the pole while someone else yelled out the window "more, more, back OK RIGHT THERE!"...always would forget the limit of the 75 ohm cable slack.

    or...wait for the tubes to "warm up"? having to use a "rotor" to turn the antennae up on the roof to just the right direction, to pick up a signal? BTDT...

    Have You Seen 'First Time Flippers'?

    When I read that, I had to look at the date you posted that. I was sure it was an April Fools joke.

    I detect the channel may be a bit fuzzy now....remember in B&W days when the picture would ghost over itself, then flutter a little bit? Yeah kinda like that now... I guess that's OK though as long as the Test Pattern and long beep tone don't come on and stay on

    6 loads to the Firepit! found a framing square and another try square in the mess... Didn't have any thing to "roast" over the firepit....or anything to hold the hotdogs with....down to embers now.....tomorrow, I can haul another batch out...weather permitting. Tried a bit of rehab on that OLD plough plane.....made down in Cincinnati, OH back in the 60s......1860s that is. Tote was snapped off, might add a #5 tote for now. Needs a LONG screw to hold it. Going to take quite a bit of rehab.....may wait on it. Maybe I can start cutting finger joints for a box build? Right now? It is Gin & Tonic on ice time....stay tuned

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
