  1. So just to get a little chatter going and I haven't ask one of these in a while, I thought today would be a good time. When you are doing or planning a woodworking project, what is your favorite part of the project? 1. Drawing a scale drawing 2. Building a prototype 3. Dimensioning the material 4. Layout 5. Joinery 6. Assembly 7. Sanding 8. Staining or finishing 9. Just seeing the end results!
  2. A beautiful November day here in Pennsylvania. Too bad I'm substituting and can't enjoy it. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald is working on Christmas presents! He is turning some gorgeous pendants. Checkout Gerald's post and look at the neat chuck he is using- @Pauley is looking for some help finding snowflake patterns or sources. Please head on over to his post and see if you can provide any help- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for more information and registration. For The Newbies- Looking for an easy project that will make a really nice gift? Maybe this will give you some ideas- Expand Your Horizons- M. Saban-Smith has an interesting video showing how to embellish your turnings. He demonstrates what the Sorby texturing tool can do. New Turning Items- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a couple of new sanding disk backer pads Check out these products at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/sanding-pad-holders Everything Else- In @Gerald's post on the offset pendants, he mentioned about making beads as part of the project. Mike Peace has a video on how he does them- Gerald's project of offset turning really has lots of related information this week. Mr. David Reed Smith published an article using offset turning to add Celtic like rings to a turning- The complete article is at- http://davidreedsmith.com/Articles/InlaidRings/InlaidRings.html. Mr. Smith's tutorials are extremely well documented and easy to follow. He also references several other articles on useful jigs. In case you missed it, we added another tip to the Woodturning Tips Forum. You can see it at- @John Morris has made available just about all of the old Woodturning Forum posts. Some great memories from the archives. https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forums/forum/5-wood-turning-archives/ The Woodturning OnLine newsletter is available at- https://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php?edition=112019. As you are looking through the newsletter, take advantage of the great selection of resources for projects, videos, and tutorials. As I pointed out at the beginning of this week's post, I'm substituting today, Thursday and Friday. Yesterday I received a phone call from the local Jet supplier- So there it sets, in the back of my truck- it's just not fair!! Have to wait until Saturday to begin unpacking and muscling parts to the basement. Safe turning
  3. Looks like I haven't been the most on-the-ball forum host for the last several weeks. I've missed several posts by our turners and for that I apologize. Our Patriot Turners- @Pauley asked our opinions on the Laguna 1216 midi lathe- Check out his post and see if you can offer any help. @Kevin Beitz showed us a beautiful pedestal fruit bowl that incorporated an inside-out turning. Kevin added his picture here- Back in the summer, @RustyFN was working on a vase he was turning from a glued up blank. Somehow, I missed his posting of the finished turning. It really turned out fabulous! Here is the link to the entire thread- @HandyDan is trying his hand at finial making! Looks to me like he has those things mastered!!! Dan explains his work- What’s Coming Up- If you are in or around Louisville, KY this coming summer, Keep an eye out for the AAW symposium. Currently there isn't any registration information that I can find- For The Newbies- The best way to learn to turn is to have someone teach you how to do it. A turning club is the idea environment for this. Unfortunately, not all of us live in an area where this can happen. Cap'n Eddie Castelin is starting an online club for turners. This video goes into more detail. Expand Your Horizons- Acrylic turnings seem to be all the rage right now. Carl Jacobson turns an acrylic sphere, in this video. The information he presents is more about the prep and how the acrylic casting was completed. Check out the use of the Easy Wood Tools products ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) !! New Turning Items- Some of these aren't "new" but the prices are pretty good- Click on the above image for the link to WoodTurners Wonders. Everything Else- I am currently "lathe-less". Sold my old Delta in less than 24 hours. Thanks Craig's List! I'm going to order the Jet 1640 EVS. The local dealer is offering a 15% discount thru October. Some of my jigs will have to be reworked and I'll need a spindle adapter to match up my chuck and shop made items to the new size. The most work will come in the shop rearrangement. I had the Delta bench mounted and the new Jet will have its' own stand. And, of course, I'm gonna have to call in some favors to get it to the basement!!! Before the lathe left, I managed to complete the locust bowl. Because of the shape, I took extra precautions when finishing off the bottom. Strapping tape made sure the thing stayed in place. I used some more of that black CA from StarBond to fill in a void where some of the bark was not quite complete. The finish is mineral oil and then some mineral oil/beeswax paste. Mimi has already decide who will receive it. Safe turning
  4. A brand new year! Now I have to remember to use 2019 when I write a check. Make sure you check the Raffle results to see if you were one of the winners!!! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald posted an update on his new off-center chuck- @DAB solved a problem we have all seen with those "leaky" salt and pepper grinders- He also included a how to in his post- @smitty10101 posted a question concerning how to safely turn a serving platter. His request spawned a great discussion that included some alternative procedures- @Woodbutcherbynight also asked a question about creating an adjustment wheel. Again, our turners came through with a lot of great ideas and suggestions. Check out his post and see if you can add to the discussion- What’s Coming Up- https://schoolofwoodwork.com/events/introduction-to-wood-turning-with-rudy-lopez/ For The Newbies- Mike Peace posted a video that covers an often overlooked part of lathe maintenance- keeping the Morris Tapers clean. Mike shows various bought and shop made "tools" for this process- Expand Your Horizons- Tim Yoder has a new 2 part video on creating all wood, captive ring goblets. Tim's approach is always entertaining and informative. Check out the Easy Wood Hollower and the Easy Wood Chuck ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) as Tim creates this gorgeous piece. Part 2 of the video is linked from Tim's YouTube page. New Turning Items- About a month ago, I purchased a variety of Wonder Weave from Woodturners Wonders. I wanted to compare these sanding sheets to the Abranet sheets I had been using. The sheets I purchased ranged from 60 grit to 400 grit. I also purchased a sample pack of 3" discs. I have had an opportunity to use these products and I am very pleased with the results. First, as you can see from the above images, these items have different colors for each grit and the backs are in light colored velcro. Both of these characteristic makes identification quick and easy. The Abranet products are almost all the same color and the backs are very dark making the printed grit identifiers very hard to read. Another thing I like about these products is that they are a little more flexible than the Abranet- especially the courser grits. This allows easier sanding of finer details on a turning. I think the flexibility comes from a different construction technique. The Abranet substrate looks similar to expanded metal screen then the abrasive is attached to the substrate- However the Wonder Weave substrate is more like long filaments with the abrasive attached- The Wonder Weave, like Abranet, doesn't load up like sandpaper and is easily cleaned with just a few taps to shake loose the dust. The Wonder Weave lasts as long, or longer, as the Abranet with the sanding I have done. I was buying Abranet from a sanding supplier near here. Their price is $8 - $9 for 10 sheets. The Wonder Weave is $4 for 8 sheets from Woodturners Wonders- a nice savings! Here's the bowl I've been using as a testing vehicle. The outside sanded to 600 grit. Each sanding consisted of sheet sanding with a grit then the same grit of sanding disc using an inertia sander. For the last pass, I went from 400 grit sheet/disc to 600 grit disc. The inside of the bowl has only been sanded with 60 grit at this point. I will be buying all my lathe sanding supplies from Woodturners Wonders from here on. Give them a try and check out their other products- https://woodturnerswonders.com/ Everything Else- If you haven't noticed, @John Morris has added a link to in the Woodturner's Forum that directs you to our forum's archives- https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forums/forum/5-wood-turning-archives/. A trip down memory lane! Carl Jacobson has tried yet another way to dry partially turned bowl blanks and he is having good success with it. Check out this video- it seems faster than shavings in a bag. Safe turning
  5. @Larry Buskirk... Thanks for your time to move and reformat the many archived posts to active content. Many like myself were not here when they originally posted so most all have been "new" to me. Rather one restores old machinery or not, there already has been great resource and information content made available. Won't speak for all, but I'm loving it! Glad you're back and keep up the good work!
  6. "Back From The Archives" Posts with the above quote are posts retrieved from the archives of "The Patriot Woodworker." They have been cleaned up because when the posts that were on the original software platform were migrated to the new software there were glitches. If you have looked at the posts in the archives you'll know what I mean. Old signatures were deleted, outdated website links were removed, etc. to reduce the space required to scroll through the pages. Posts that linked to nothing other than now extinct YouTube videos and links to now extinct websites were also deleted to save space in the posts. Reference to same was edited out in later posts. You can now also reply to these posts, which was not possible before they were retrieved. So lets take a trip back in time, and review the work of some of the old "Masters of old ARN"

  8. "Back From The Archives" Hello I have an 1160, and am looking to find a couple of parts. The gears that mesh to move the table up and down are worn, and don't work well. I saw that you restored one in the past and wondered if you had any secret stashes of parts or knew who might. Delta has discontinued these parts (my saw was made in the 40's, so I don't blame them), and they don't even provide a part number I might search the web with. I absolutely love this saw. Dont tilt the table at all. It was my fathers saw, and I have used it extensively over the years. It is the "cabinet makers" model which came on a stand with a 6" jointer as well. I would hate to lose it! Let me know if you have any secrets I can use! Thanks in advance. Neal Kobylik 810-252-9550 nealkobylik@hotmail.com
  9. The 2018 Raffle is on!!! Please head over to this post and see the prizes from our generous sponsors- Good Luck!! On another note, you may have noticed many of our forums now contain a sub-forum for tips. For the Turners forum, you can find it here- https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forums/forum/65-wood-turning-tips/ As with any of your posts in any forum or sub-forum, please remember to use "Tags" to help others doing searches for similar content. Our Patriot Turners- Last week, we featured a beautiful platter from @Gerald. Gerald was kind enough to show us the steps he used to create the different colors- Please add your comments to his post at- You may remember that @Steve Krumanaker turned a maple bowl and then use pyrography to create a "rock" finish. Steve also came up with a beautiful display stand that permits viewing from any angle- You can read about how Steve made this in his post- @DAB is considering turning some pens and pencils. He posted an inquiry about what he should think about for equipment and supplies. Pleas check out the post and offer your suggestions- As it turns out, Woodcraft is offering some tremendous close-out deals on a bunch ot their pen/pencil kits. Thanks to @Gerald for the heads up on this one- Woodcraft Pen Clearance @Ron Altier was having trouble with his lathe. His On/Off switch failed. Ron's ingenuity for the repair should be a lesson to us all! What’s Coming Up- Just a reminder, the Mid-Atlantic Woodturners symposium will be held in Lancaster, PA, September 28-30. From The Internet- Tim Yoder posted a neat project for the gardener in your life. We mentioned "Garden Dibbles" in the past but Tim put his own spin on this one- Everything Else- Our administrator, @John Morris has revived several old turning posts from the archives. I think you'll enjoy the trip down memory lane- Had an afternoon to play this past week. Turned some maple finials using my Easy Wood Tools Mid-Sized Micro Detailer. Was going to see what they looked like "ebonized" with India ink but my old bottle had dried up. I hope @Jim from Easy Wood Tools passes along how much I like the new micro (sharp) tip. The taller one is about 3" and the shortes is about 2". Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools. Safe turning
  10. Let's see them.. The one you enjoy the most. Here's mine, she was made in U.S.A. back about 160 years ago. I use her for just about everything, in the workshop and out on the timber.
  11. Seemed to have picked up a side job for the shop. Friend needed some parts made for a coat pole. I looked through the scrap pile, found two chunks about the right size. One was from an old barn rafter, and smelled liked when cut... The other was a cut-off of Walnut. Both were still "in the rough" and needed plane work. The Barn Rafter chunk also had two cut nails still in it. Took an old slotted screwdriver tip, re-grind it into a punch, and drove one on through. The other one was on the edge, and got pried out. Planned both smooth on the faces, wasn't too worried about the edge grain. Got out the OLD B&D sabre-saw, and cut out the profile needed. yep, this is how things get cut out, nowadays. Band-saw is DOA right now, don't feel like trying to rehab it. Clamp things to the bench top, and sabre-saw away the waste. The Walnut chunk all marked up, awaiting the saw.. "Prototype" out in front, and the other two. Getting closer now. Belt sanders to smooth the saw marks, and flatten an edge or two. When the sabresaw goes around a curve, there is a slight bend to the blade. Sanders took away the angled edges. Hmmm, need to add a double bevel to the ends, to fit in the pole's grooves. Well, maybe a hand plane will do the trick? Rough it out with the 5-1/4 Junior Jack, Finesse it up with a #3 smoother. Will need to stain and finish the two "new" arms and install them....
  12. "Back From The Archives" The Wadkin R family of machines were designed in the 1920's and built up until the mid 50's they were the first generation of machines made in England to be offered Line belt or motor drive. Most of the time you will see that the motors are just after thoughts. I have been on the look out for a few of these rare machines. I have an RS lathe and RD jointer but the Wadkin RM is a hard one to find. When you talk as much as I do about Wadkin, people start to contact you and give you the heads up on where machines can be had. It is in this cast that the RM makes it way to me. A friend and Wadkin lover (RD and RK owner) got this before the scrap man. He was going to keep it but called me up and said it needs to be in the Wadkin dream shop. I am never to sell it and he said he get's to try it out when I Jackifie it. I am beside myself. The Wadkin RM, 3200lbs of the best British Arn. The RM came with a manual it is hand written. My friend made a video of it for me here it is.
