  1. Those are beauties, Don! May I ask how you attach the curved handle to the staff? Tenon, dowels, metal pins??

    Steel wool

    I use it on oil based poly but not water based. Also, I tend to shy away from it on very open grains- red oak or wormy wood. The tiny fragments are really hard to remove from the recesses.
  3. Sounds like a tremendous shop! I envy all that room!!
  4. Hey, Jerry, Welcome! Love to see some of your projects! Lew
  5. Sweet little project, John.
  6. Hey, Richard, former Airdale here. Looking forward to seeing some of your projects.
  7. Here's a link that may provide some help- http://www.ehow.com/how_6301706_remove-black-stains-oak.html
  8. Super having you here, Lee! I really liked the pix of the little cars and your walking cane series. I've made a few knives- love to see yours.
  9. I have heard of folks using a bleaching agent- Sodium percarbonate. I think it is hydrogen peroxide based. I have never used it. I imagine that the stain has penetrated the wood pretty far because of the open pores of red oak. Sorry I'm not more help.
  10. Glad you're here, Mike! Love to see some of your projects.
  11. I know there are a lot of Scroll Sawers here and maybe you all have seen these. It was new to me- Website: http://www.bigfootproducts.ca/Click-N-Lock.html Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4-ko4DBsYI&feature=player_embedded#t=70
  12. Looking Great, John! I think building the cabinet is the "easy" part. Getting them to hang square and plumb in the home can be a real challenge!!

    Hi to all

    Hi, Mahendra, and welcome to the site! I am looking forward to seeing some of your projects!
  15. Sweet! I like the way you did the "gang" operations. Also like that little combo square. I have a little 4" Starrett square- they are so handy.
  16. Great looking piece, John! I know it's not "hardwood" but natural pine sure is beautiful.
  17. That's a beauty! Wish I had one like it. Lew Kauffman- Wood Turners Forum Host Time Traveler and Purveyor of the Universe's Finest Custom Rolling Pins!
  18. Great looking projects in the works- the cabinet and the young helper!!
  19. I like it the way it is now. Question- does the "wing nut" lock the blade at the desired angle?
  20. You might check the auto parts store. I think there is a high temperature paint used for car engines.
  21. Been wanting to have one of these for my lathe and finally got around to making it. Had almost everything lying around the shop. Scrap plywood ~ 17" x 48" and a piece ~ 10" x 10". Hardware is all 1/4 x 20 machine bolts/nuts and fender washers. I may replace the wing nuts with knobs to make it a little easier on old hands. The cam action hold down has been in my "extras box" for a couple of years waiting on a worthwhile project. Got it from Woodcraft. The wheels are from an $8 pair of In-Line Skates bought from Goodwill. The "circle" is made of 3 layers of 3/4 plywood. The wheel holders are made of Maple. There is a Maple "guide" on the bottom of the base that helps trap the assembly between the lathe bed rails. I works pretty well, the wheel holders need a little sanding and bees wax to allow them to slide a bit more freely. The base may be a bit too wide although my large tool rest can allow access to the edge of the turning. Thanks for looking! Comments are always welcome!
  22. Neat! Did you take any pix during the clamping phase?
  23. Found this. http://vintagemachinery.org/PhotoIndex/detail.aspx?id=19 This too. http://vintagemachinery.org/photoindex/detail.aspx?id=6661 But neither had the same table as yours.
