  1. Greetings Mr. Lew Seriously, I am going to say BOLLOCKS, your turnings are good as any other top turners around the world. You pieces are well done, love seeing photos of them so mate "You Rock On as woodturner", don't put yourself down.
  2. I just took truck load of it to local council tip as we had it just laying around. I just wish I had some of your guys Northern Hemisphere woods here in Australia, or we do but it will cost you arm and leg.
  3. Greetings All Eucalyptus wood is also especially resistant to rotting and decay. It’s got a high oil content that makes it stand up easily to moisture. Eucalyptus furniture also needs to be sealed annually to protect it from moisture and keep it looking fresh. This part I had to Google up. "eucalyptus patio furniture will lose some durability after prolonged exposure to extremely cold temperatures. If you live in a cold climate and, you should consider some other materials or find a place to store your furniture when winter arrives", so depending where you live, h
  4. And if you got luck, some people pay seriously big dollars for those pieces, they don't want perfect shaped pieces. Heaps of people want natural edge pieces.
  5. Greetings All I bought this machine for myself but my son, 15 years old, has taken over it, he prints some "junk", practise items but he has done some useful items too, like brackets to hold window curtains which I broke a while ago, couldn't find similar ones from local Hardware shop. He figured it out what kind it should be, printed out 1, bit too small, added few millimeters to the size and top job, curtain is up again, wife is happy again. I paid $383 aus dollars to my unit, great way to start 3d printing. His latest prints are copying photos, printing them out and 1st t
  6. Greetings Mate I leave longer waste piece to the bottom, where chuck attaches, when piece is done, turn the piece around either using chuck with late jaws or jam piece inside. I did make a mistake with this piece, 3 legged piece is more steady than 4 legged. Been so long time since I did 1 before and just didn't remember that 3 is better. Then is just turning the center to same shape as rest of the piece is, nice continues curve. Then I just used Dremel to cut pieces of between legs. Sanding and more sanding. It is far from perfect piece but it was good start, wife likes it and it
  7. Greetings Mate, fwe weeks ago I finally had time and felt good, so I went to the shed and got this piece done, simple Camper Laurel 4 legged bowl, danish oil finish. Good practise piece to start with.
  8. Greetings Gerald The lathe comes complete with an electronic variable speed unit, got 3 belt settings and variable speed control unit.
  9. Greetings Mate I just want to get in there, put lump of wood on, turn lathe on and get all the dust flying again. And not to lose any fingers awhile doing all this. My daughter got into making ear rings, jewellery so I was going to make like a mushroom, drill small holes to the edge so she could display/hang her jewellery off it. Easy simple job 1st.
  10. https://vicmarc.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=productdetails&virtuemart_product_id=94&virtuemart_category_id=13 Local Lathe maker here in Australia, get quality product, I have seen blokes in wheelchairs to use it and they loved it.
  11. Greetings Mate Lets see who can make something in their shed 1st, I haven't been in my shed for so long, battling PTSD issues, finally getting it under control so I can trust myself with lathe and other tools.
  12. Greetings Gerald I haven't seen any pro turner on their videos or Youtube clips or live demos or private demos seen anyone sanding off the lathe, they do all their sandings on the lathe, like Lewis said, turn using safe fast speed but sand with slow speed. Only pieces I sand off the lathe are natural edge pieces, top part where you got gaps and sanding disk can bounce around and leave uneven surface.
