  1. Hey gang, don't forget, we are into our site fundraising raffle. We started off like gangbusters but we have a long way to go! If you haven't already purchased your tickets, please consider checking out the fantastic prizes! All the proceeds from this fundraiser go to the operating costs of this site. Here's more: Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker set up a really cool way to visualize wall thicknesses when turning hollow forms. He mentioned it last week and had an opportunity to get his vase turned- Beautiful shape and colorization. Steve tells us more about this turning and also posted some images of the hollowing tools he made- Steve was out at one of the nation's largest "yard sales" and snagged a honey of an old turning caliper- Steve shows us more images and a little about his shopping experience- @AndrewB continues to create beautiful pepper mills. Here is his most recent piece- Andrew shows us some other views in his post- Andrew posted a couple of process shots in our "What's On Your Workbench" forum. Thought I'd add them here as well so you cans see what this pepper mill looked like along the way- Last week I posted a video of @Gerald's work but couldn't remember how I came across it. Gerald was kind enough to steer me in the right direction. The club Gerald belongs to is called the Magnolia Woodturners. They have a YouTube channel with a bunch of demonstrations. Check it out at- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxqC3z3zrAP-cICGwP-wiDw/videos @John Morris provided a link to download a portion of the September-October Workbench Magazine- the plans for a turned cherry planter. A simple project that could be turned from just about any wood. The PDF file- Workbench Magazine September-October 1967 Cherry Planter.pdf And the link to John's post- What’s Coming Up- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Events/Annual-Symposium---Conference/2021-Virtual-Symposium/Woodturner/2021-Virtual-Symposium/2021-Virtual-Symposium-Home.aspx?_zs=ceDib&_zl=NKsb2 Here's the link for signing up- http://www.cindydrozda.com/html/Signup.html For The Newbies- It's no secret that the skew is my archenemy with which I have a love/hate relationship. Mike Waldt has added another beginners guide to lathe tool use with this live demonstration and question/answer video. It is quite long but very informative- The forth in a series on lathe maintenance from Record Power- Expand Your Horizons- A nice kitchen project that involves some not too difficult offset turning from the Woodworker's Journal https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/project-double-offset-bread-knife/ Alan Stratton makes a wooden goblet from walnut- Everyone here knows my fondness for the Easy Wood Tools products ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ). I use their tools for almost all of the items I turn. The folks at Easy Wood Tools will be the first to acknowledge that having many types of tools (Carbide and HSS) in your arsenal is beneficial. What really bothers me is why many experienced turners tend to diminish the roll of carbide tools and their users. I recently came across 2 videos where the authors compare/contrast carbide to HSS. Both turners are well known and highly respected. Both expounded on what HSS tools can do and what Carbide cannot. In the first video, in my opinion, the presenter hasn't spent equal time learning the ins/outs of Carbide vs. HSS. It's disappointing because his was the first lathe book I ever had. This second presenter is more receptive to the idea that Carbide has advantages. It's still skewed somewhat to the HSS allegiance, but, that is to be expected as the presenter has their own line of HSS tools. END OF RANT. New Turning Items- From Woodturners Wonders a really nice sanding bundle at a great price. Note: this is a air powered device- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/pros-wonder-weave-snubber-hose-bundle From Craft Supplies USA, a new item for those who make rings- https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/p/58/7376/artisan-White-Ceramic-Inlay-Comfort-Fit-Ring-Core-8mm?utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=white&utm_campaign=21-05-ceramic Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- Safe turning and stay well
  2. Just a reminder that we are about 2 weeks into our summer raffle to help offset the costs of running the Patriot site. If you haven't already picked up your tickets for some awesome prizes, here's the scoop! Our Patriot Turners- Our turners were back at their lathes this week! @RustyFN posted his curly maple segmented bowl and it is a beauty! Rusty received lots of positive comments about it. Check out the post at- @AndrewB turned a slightly different style pepper mill. The grinding mechanism is different from his past turnings- Andrew shows us his progress from the rough blank to the finished mill- Andrew also gave us a review of his new buffing system He gave us the link to this product in his post- One of our long time members posted his first turning. @Ron showed us the beginnings of a cane he is making- He received lots of encouragement and some suggestions on this turning- @forty_caliber poste a question about using the parting tool. Check out his post and see if you can offer some suggestions or ideas- @Steve Krumanaker started turning a tall vase from flame box elder. Looks like this is going to be a beauty! More images in Steve's post- Just a note here, if you subscribe to the Woodworker's Journal, next issue has an article about flame box elder- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/box-elder/ Steve has decided to up his game, when deep hollowing, and ditch the laser pointer for a more advance method of determining wall thickness. Check out his post on his most recent upgrade- @Gerald challenged us to post our Mother's Day turning gifts. Gerald's gift turning is fantastic! See additional images and our member's comments in his post- I need to start writing down the trails to some of the stuff for each weeks Wednesday's... I can't remember how I came across this video of Gerald's presentation to the Magnolia Woodturners- What’s Coming Up- A little something different from Cindy Drozda- Click on the above image to Cindy's site and registration information. From the AAW- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. For The Newbies- We have been linking videos from Record Power on lathe maintenance. Although aimed at a specific lathe model, the information can be pretty much applied to any lathe. Here is part# 3Part# 3 of Mike Waldt's beginner series for turners. Again this is a replay of a live session and is kind of long. From the World Wide Wood Turners, a nice demonstration on various methods of holding a turning. Expand Your Horizons- Mike Waldt has something for the more advanced turner in this video- Alan Stratton's take on chasing threads Mike Peace recently published a video on the various types of spiraling and texturing tools. Within the video, Mike refers to links for longer videos on each tool. He also has a PDF article that can be downloaded at- https://www.mikepeacewoodturning.com/2019/05/03/texturing-and-spiraling/ IMHO, there can be no greater honor than to be asked to create a burial urn. Sam Angelo has a video demonstrating how to calculate the internal volume using some easily made measuring devices. New Turning Items- Robert Sorby Brand Ambassador Darryl Jones introduces the Deluxe Sovereign TurnMaster Box Set- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a heavy duty compass capable of drawing 28" circles. Check it out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/12-inch-carpenters-compass Premier Gauges has some interestingly designed wall and bottom thickness gauges- More information can be found at- https://premiergauges.com/ Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I had one last piece of cherry but it had some pretty nasty cracks. Decided to see what could be found inside. I'm surprised that I could get this much. Sill a couple of cracks that will need taken care of At this point I normally submerge the piece in the soap and water solution for a couple of days and then on to drying in a paper bag with shavings. Turned out my pot is only 12" in diameter!. I CA'ed the cracks, wrapped the bowl in stretch wrap and put it in my little drying box (ala Rick Turns). Then for the cleanup! Safe turning and stay well
  3. I wanted a nice tripod as a gun rest and for occasional camerawork. I settled on the big heavy studio type they are better for cameras as they dampen vibrations and for a gun rest it'll be great because of the same thing - - mass. I won't be hiking anywhere with this thing. The wood is Maple I harvested on the property. The steel is a plate I got in the fleabay, some extra heavy steel gas pipe and various A-36 grade crud steel from Hillman I got at the BORG. The knobs are blanks from Carr Lane that I drilled and tapped. Ii is only mostly done. The angle head and gun rest are not even designed yet. I have some fill work and paint to apply, Plus I need to create the locking clamp for the head and gun rest that will slide up and down in the steel pipe/tube. I'll use another Carr Lane knob for that. The sanding and applied coatings are yet to be done to the wood too. Also there is the feet to finish. I'm going to turn steel spikes for one end and put rubbers on the other. The inside leg parts will pull out and reverse to invoke the spikes or rubbers. So far I'm really happy with how it's turned out. The leg angle adjusters work flawlessly and are very robust. The action of the leg extensions is smooth as silk. And it is solid as the Rock of Gibraltar First I made these three little knuckles. They are part of how the leg angles are set and locked. The first pieces of 3/8" steel drilled with 1/2" and tapped for 5/16-18 one side and clearance through the other. I made them to be clamps by clamping them together for drilling, Then sanding 0.010" or so off the faces with the hole half then re clamping them on the 1/2" shafting and welding one end. This way when I engage the tapped hole on the end opposite the welds they would squeeze around one of the shafts locking the action. You'll see~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Then I welded up six of these below clamps for the sliding legs In the pic above you can see the one with the knob has a little flat piece of steel inside the box. That is to spread the pressure of the clamp screw across the wood to prevent damage. In the pictures of the tripod you only see three of these but there are six that will be on it in the final assembly. Then I turned three of these 2' maple shafts Of course this is not the final shape. I had to rip them and pop them in my planer to make them skinny. like so: The above is two halves re-glued together. I left a little lip at the end to fasten a block of wood. Here is the planer rig = pretty basic. It was necessary that they be very accurate in dimension and each be exactly the same as the other half. I would have to rip the glue up twice more so I glued them offset like so: And then mount little blocks to them to keep them stable and flat on my table saw To finally get this shape (see the piece in the center) Here are some of the tripod's leg angle locks From below looking up The leg height adjusts so smoothly
  4. Still with the camera issues today. Waiting on a call back about a second Opinion on this knee. Plywood was rough cut to size. leaving quite a bit extra.. Took a few more cuts to get just the right fit. Even used a block plane to straighten out the saw cuts.....started grabbing clamps and a mallet. Found a couple spots needing trimmed up. Got more clamps down. 6 clamps, so far, and haven't glue things up, yet Had one square inside, to check a corner, or three.. Seemed to be square. Have most of the gaposis fixed. Decided to load the box up, to see how things would fit.. And to figure out where to put a few dividers. The thumbscrew may be a problem. The 12" bevel gauge, may be too long? Close ups? But, at least there might be room IF I find anymore of these? I'll work on this part, and then maybe a lid? Something like this lid? This little box? Is now serving at the Auburn Ave. Baptist Church......Pastor hides his stash of candy in it.....has a place of Honour in his office. I might have enough leftovers to build a lid like this....
  5. I needed to order a battery for a camera my daughter gave me over ten years ago needed a battery so I got online and found a great buy much cheaper than the 35.50 for an exact replacement battery. After about ten pictures the battery needed recharging...It was a no name battery from ?? Same thing happened today only now you gotta watch for they now have the almost exact numbers and the picture of the battery is the original picture of a canon battery that came with the camera... The exact battery is still 35.46 from walmart... This is almost exactly what I went through ten years ago or longer and it is still going on today. Then I found the same battery picture with almost the same numbers for 7.99 and freight paid through the walmart site. This is what I ordered or something like this and when I got the battery it was not a canon battery and had to be recharged way too often.. And like then it was too big of a hassle to bring it up with someone and I still have that battery as a back up...The 7.99 battery is not being shipped from walmart and this is what I have run into going through Amazon . I think I order one thing and got something close so guys be aware....I quit using the fake battery for I was afraid it might start leaking acid inside the camera and cost a bundle to put back right. Even the serial numbers is close enough maybe most people stop reading the numbers before they get to the end ...The serial number is not showing on the battery but all the writing is exactly on both batteries. Just take your time when ordering on line and make sure everything is what you think you are getting...
  6. Between using that Stanley 45 and learning this new camera's tricks. Made the lumber Run today....Cheapest 2 x 4 x8' was..$3.15....at Lowes.. Got three and a 2'x4' panel of 1/4" plywood. Good thing I get a 10% discount for my Mil. ID... Got the "Treasures" down to the shop, and let them sit awhile....had other things to do... had four more blanks to surface S4S.. Used a couple larger planes for that job ( and you'll what the camera is doing, too) That be a Stanley No.5-1/2, sitting in front of a stanley No. 6c Apparently, the "Macro" setting was still on? Or not.. Anyway, i got the four blanks looking decent enough.. seems to be a lot of glare off the overhead light, too. Decided to give the Stanley 45 a good run for it's money... Got going too fast and rough on one edge...and the depth stop came off the cutter. Got to checking the cutter....yuck, instead of a flat bevel, it has a rounded bevel...like a beer belly. Will take the time tomorrow to straight that out. Decided I could drill a hole into each end( tenons go there, anyway) and attach the blank to the side of the bench. Needed to counter sink the holes a bit, so the fence won't hit the screws.. Need to resize this one down, camera makes too big a picture. Brace is a 6" Keen Kutter, by Millers falls. Anyway, Once the blank was set up.. I could pound away with the 45. Once each blank was done, time to make some tenons on the ends. BTW: I cleaned the rebate with an older plane.. So,..tenons. I used the first blank to mark out where the tenons would be. Took the blank around to the mitre box and cut the shoulders... Has a stop cut set just about right. Once both ends were cut, I could walk back around to the bench, and do the cheek cut.. And let the waste drop off. Cleaned up with a chisel.. Kept trying to find out which setting worked the best, depending on how close I was....not always working out. I got two with both edges done, and one for the bottom of the side. The bottom and top blanks only have one molded edge. Legs started to get crampy....and even the ribs. Time to call it a day. Of the two blanks left to do ( out of five) both will be either a bottom or a top blank. Too many knots. New 2x4 should be able to give me a few knot-free blanks, I hope. Too tired and sore right now, maybe tomorrow,eh?
  7. Here is a topic that may not come up often enough. I am not a professional and do tend to point and shoot, but there are some basics we can all benefit from. Lets start with equipment. A good camera helps, but there lots of them. I like SLR's and have been using them since the early 80's. Now using DSLR. There are plenty of compact cameras out there that will work also. Important is being able to change settings from A,to T to P,or portrait or macro and capability to adjust light balance. The camera does not have to break the bank and if you want a good SLR (film) I have one for reasonable. A tripod is essential to get a good shot and this too could be reasonable as it only needs to hold camera steady but can be difficult to set up so look at reviews before a purchase. A background for the picture helps to eliminate distracting background. Do not use wrinkled fabric. The background should be a neutral color such as gray or gradient gray to white. This can be paper on a roll or plastic in various sizes. You can google search and find many available. The background should go under the work piece. Lighting is essential and it will be very evasive. You will only need one or two light sources and they should be the same color temperature. Do not choose CFL unless you can find the color corrected type. LED's also work just not the white light ones. I use halogen work lights pointed toward the ceiling for reflected light to reduce shadows and glare. You can also use tents and diffusers to soften lights. These you can make from several different fabric types (Tshirt to sheets to shears from curtains) This covers the minimum for photographic equipment to get a good picture of your work. You could spend as much as $2000 or more or as little as 200 based on your budget and how you are bitten by the photography bug. I will be covering other areas in future installments.
