  2. Thanks Lew, still trying to get my next chair back on the bench and assembled, the parts are all ready just need to get motivated! Thanks again Lew.
  3. Holy Cow Gene! Now that's a compliment! Although I think once you coveted the chair, it would be a one owner chair after that.
  4. Don't delete the entry Ron, take a picture of the project and post it here regardless what it looks like! Part of us learning from others is seeing what a disaster looks like because we all have em! I'd be very interested in seeing the turning either way.
  5. Gene, I own the F style Jorgys too, I literally used channel locks to turn the handles for troublesome clamping, problem with that is my handles are getting destroyed, never thought of drilling holes in the handles to insert a dowel or steel rod, thanks!
  6. Steve, what belts did you go with, standard engine belts or the fancy ones with links?
  7. Great job Steve, and thanks for the tutorial. You would not believe it, but in today's disposable world we live in, folks actually throw a saw away when it becomes dull.
  8. I guess you had not choice but by hand on that one right Steve! Those types of joints should be called Eagle tails, too big to be called Dove tails.
  9. Time for new belts, or is it just the way it is at this point?
  10. Let it have an honorable death John!
  11. The project is looking good Cliff!! Nice and clean and professional. A thought about your Bessey's, I just got done Googling and looking for any complaints about the Bessy's not being strong enough I was hard pressed to find any. My first instinct when I saw your clamping was that first off, those clamps are better fitted to panel and case glue ups, the handles are not made for max torque, because you cannot get max torque from spindle handles, the grip is just not there, those C Clamps you are using are waaaay better suited to provide the clamping power you would need for small bulky glue ups
