    Help please.

    Thanks, Dan, I was thinking it was pronounced "step" when it really is "steb".

    Help please.

    I bought a step drive (I think that is the name) and I can't turn without it catching. It is stopping when it shouldn't. How much pressure can I put on the headstock with the tailstock? My lathe is an old spindle lathe with a 1/2 HP motor. I was practicing turning a small leg (8.5") and getting nowhere. Oh yes, I was turning pine.

    Jewelry Chest Finally Done!

    I really do like it. I have not seen anything you have made but I am looking forward to seeing more. Now that you have made one you can make plans for the others. If you are like me you will forget.

    Hey Larry, I didn't have to do anything except clean some dirt off it. What little I have tried on this lathe it seems to do better on the next to the highest speed. I hope I can learn enough to turn 4 legs about 9" long before Christmas. I am building my daughter a small table that you eat from while laying in bed. I don't know what you call it. Why she wants it I don't have a clue. WOMEN !!! LOL

    For my spindle lathe is this something I need, and if I do would this work or maybe I can get by with something cheaper. I finally got my lathe going late last week and I see right off you guys make it look a lot easier than it is. https://www.woodcraft.com/products/nova-g3-woodturning-chuck-bundle-teknatool?trk_msg=15VJHDAQTL24N3TTFFLR31K50C&trk_contact=H5U8HIFMO58CJKFU635VCUHNUG&trk_sid=Q5TDA8LMRVILK5VF0OGAEKA3Q0&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=NOVA+G3&utm_campaign=Let's+Talk+Turkey

    What brand scrollsaw do you use?

    I have an Excaliber 16 and love it. It's very smooth and easy to operate. The only downside is the dust collection, it is useless. I use the Pegas MGT blades. These blades are different than others. You feed your pattern line straight into the blade instead of at an angle. https://www.dndsawbladesonline.com/page/79818204

    Man, I am loving this. You are doing such a great job of telling your story with pictures. It's like being at the movies. I bit the end of this movie is going to be great.

    Air dried VS kiln dried wood?

    We have a lot of Eastern Red Cedar in Tn. but I have not built anything with it. I really like Western Cedar but it cost a pretty penny to buy it at HD. I sometimes buy the fence planks which are dirt cheap and plane them down.

    If it was not for bad luck I would have no luck at all. LOL

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.
