    Gouge sharpening

    Interesting idea, however only useful for spindle roughing gouge or a bottom feeder. And that would be a lot of setup for gouge not used that much.

    Now the question is how many years have you been harvesting off this tree?

    Lie Nielsen No. 51 Shooting Plane

    We John I just decided to collect the original Stanley and have at least one of each even number from 3 to 8. And then there all those others like plough planes , pattern planes. one transition plane (one is more than enough) and some more stuff I put in the plane category.

    Thanks for the video. I could only afford one of theirs and one LV. Both Christmas presents.

    Pine cone pen

    Two of our club members do it some and it is stabilized in a pressure pot
  8. It is amazing how difficult it is to find the correct bulb if you do not have the number.
  9. Dan those are only 1700 lumen and therefore about a third less bright that the ones I bought. That also affects the price. @Dadio Your bulb is 3900 lumen and almost twice the brightness of mine . Seems the price goes up rapidly with lumen increases
  10. THIS is the place I get mine , but I see 8 foot can be expensive. Cheaper to buy a cheap 4 foot fixture at walmart and take the ballast out and use LED lights in it. I usually pay between 11 and 13 dollars for the no ballast lights in 2400 lumen and 4000K color temperature. Have most of the shop rearrange done. Now to finish the new drawer unit for lathe tools and get some turning done.

    New chuck

    Sounds like a great deal with all those jaws alone worth over 100. But I prefer SN2 and can get those for 119.

    Nice idea but did not see any hearing protection or dust collection

    I think it looks great like it is. Make it in maple with the same colors. Maybe just me but looks like a pregnant woman upside down.

    Steve my experience may be the opposite of yours. I did not sharpen enough and still have all those cheap Harbor Freight and mini Benjamins. I was able to get some good tools not long after I started turning and did not do much turning to start so maybe that is the reason they lasted. Only recently have I started to sharpen often the way I should.

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.
