  1. Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN added an addition to his new Record Lathe This outrigger adds a lot of versatility to the lathe as Rusty explains in his post- New member @Chris Brown, is looking for a new lathe and asked our advice. Our members aren't shy about providing help when asked! Check out Chris' post and chime in with your thoughts! We have been talking about various types of steady rests lately. @Ron Altier showed us his shop made version. Ron's is especially useful having two sets of wheels- Ron describes his build in this post- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration! This is a YouTube event presented by many "Makers". Click on the above image for the link to the event's YouTube Channel. Cindy Drozda is having a multiday event on tall wooden vessels Click on the above image for the link to Cindy's site and registration information. Highland Woodworking is having an online woodturning event with John Lucas More information and registration can be found by clicking on the above image. If you are a member of the AAW, they are presenting Liam O'Neill in their Master Series, March 27. Here's the link to more information- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Virtual-Events/AAW-Master-Series--Liam-O-Neill--Intro--March-27--2021--TRT-1-26-.aspx For The Newbies- Here's a nice kitchen project that combines elements of spindle turning and a little hollowing- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/project-elegant-biscuit-cutter/ Some tools, because of their shape, can be difficult to sharpen. Here's a novel approach that seems to work pretty good! Too often, when I put a chunk of wood on the lathe, I'm really not sure exactly what I'll end up with. This short video can help with planning the outcome. Expand Your Horizons- This is a really long video. It is a teaching lesson, by Linda Ferber, about surface embellishments and more. The folks at Alumilite help us decide which epoxy is suited for a particular application- New Turning Items- Not a new item but maybe something you have been thinking about adding to your arsenal. The Sorby Pro Hollower- Ruth Niles has put together a package deal of some of her most popular items Here is the link for ordering- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product/super-stainless-kit/ If you use the code "newsletter #25" at checkout, you'll get an extra discount! Ruth's newsletter also has some previews of Rebecca DeGroot's latest idea. Why not subscribe- it's free! Everything Else- Rick Turns video list from last week. Please note that Rick has added some information about a YouTube channel that was posting another turner's work as their own. Frank Howarth is always amazing to watch. His imagination- and workshop- are awesome! I posted my finished steady rest project. If anyone wants the Sketchup drawing, let me know- Safe turning and stay well
  2. I have read posts regarding this tool but it seems that no one likes it. I purchased one from eBay years ago and I use it sometimes. Biscuits don't offer much strength, but they are helpful to align the join. They are made of pieces of wood constructed much like plywood. But, just in case you own a Shopsmith and don't have the funds to purchase a real biscuit cutter, here is what I do and have done several times. There is another that you can use, but I don't recommend it as it is not strong. So, what does this contraption look like? You have 3 major components. The housing, the arbor and blade and the faceplate. Shown here it is completely assembled as it makes it easy to store and use. I only dissassemble when I wish to clean it or change the blade. There are no bearings. Right behind the faceplate are 3 rings. When pushed back, when the first ring meets the spring holder, you have cut sufficient depth for a #5 biscuit. If you push back to the second ring, you have enough cut for a #10 biscuit and the 3rd ring which is the one just behind the faceplate, you have a cut to accomodate the #20 biscuit. Inside the housing, you see the arbor. The common set screw must be tightened on the reverse taper on the quill. Normally, when you tighten the screw, it is best if you rock the attachment to ensure it is properly seated. In this case, it is impossible. I strongly suggest that after attaching the arbor that you rotate the housing to bring the faceplate to the top or if you have it in drill press mode, that the face is to the front. One caution, ensure that you don't push the housing up on the quill too tightly. It may cause the blade to scrape the bottom of the housing. It is neither good for the blade or housing. Just a little clearance on both sides of the blade is what you desire. Now that you have the cutter mounted, we need to decide if we are going to stay horizontal or shift to drill press mode. So, now we use the saw table. This is the table from the 500 series but it works much the same for the newer models. Now, is an excellent time to remove the fence. Table is now at 90 degrees and brought close to the biscuit cutter. This is a great time to check all the locks. Don't worry if you don't lock down the headstock. There is a recovery for that. Once you set up the machine in drill press mode, you can always use the quill to move the headstock back up the way tubes. Then you can lock it. LOL
