    A wish

    I know everyone is busy with the holidays quickly approaching, but I just wanted to take a quick moment to wish everyone on Patriot Woodworker a very special warm, peaceful and Merry Christmas. God Bless.
  2. Well, I purchased a Spartan 180 grit CBN wheel...what a difference it is from the white wheel! You mentioned about some people saying you should clean the CBN wheel with trend lapping fluid. When I got the spartan wheel, it recommended cleaning the wheel in Kerosine occasionally.
  3. Ha ha ha...welcome to my world.
  4. Gotcha good advise that I’ll follow....thanks again Gerald.
  5. Thanks Gerald. The 180 grit it is. Thank you sir.
  6. I’ve been using a Norton 100grit white wheel to sharpen my lathe tools. It works pretty well, but I’m getting tired of dressing the heck out of the wheel all the time. So, I’m thinking about a CBN wheel. My question is what grit should I get? I was thinking the 180 grit CBN, but not sure? I don’t use very expensive tools. I use Benjamin’s best. They’re HSS and seem to work pretty well for me.

    This is what I’m going to try...will let you all know how it works out. Thank you.

    Wow! These look really nice. I have a couple,of small projects going right now, but when I’m done, I’m going to make an attempt to make some of these. Nice job.

    Very nicely done...

    As smallpatch And Gerald has suggested, I’m going to try and make these myself. I think I’m going to use a solid piece of wood to bore the holes, that way I won’t leave a chance of me leaving seams where they are joined together. Thanks for your ideas...

    I think this is the way I’m going to go. I’ll try making them myself...thanks so much for going through all the trouble to give me a visual. It certainly helps a lot.

    I may make my own, but I think I’ll use a wood that will contrast with the outer shell. “If” I do make one, which I’m going to give it a shot, I will definitely post it here.

    My plan wasn’t to use paint. I rarely ever use stains or paints when I do a woodturning. I like to let the beauty of the wood come through.
