  1. Here's hoping all our members along the northern Gulf are safe. I saw where Pensacola had almost 2 feet of rain so far. On another note, please remember to add tags to your posts. I try to remember to check but sometimes my memory fails me. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB has been cranking out projects like crazy this past week! His little elm bowl is beautiful- You can see his progress in this post and check out the comments by our turners- Next, Andrew posted his work on a bloodwood bowl. All did not go as planned as he describes in his post. However, the end results were quite spectacular! Moving on, Andrew turned some acrylic pen blanks. He included a video of his process in the post- Finally, saving the best for last here, he showed us a myrtlewood bowl. It is inspiring to see how far Andrew has come in such a short span of time. He mentions in his post about the inertia sander he used to get this awesome beauty finished- @FlGatorwood saw an item that is designed to sharpen carbide cutters. Check out his post to see the comments of our turners- We have a couple of turning items for sale- First, @Jim from Easy Wood Tools was contacted by a turner who has a Easy Wood Tools Pro Rougher for sale- Jim provided contact information in his post- Also, @FlGatorwood has some Easy Wood Tools cutters for sale. They are Ci2-R2 and Ci3-NR. You can contact him through our site- What’s Coming Up- This Saturday, September 19, 2020, there will be another Virtual Craft Festival. Get all the information here- https://www.virtuallycrafty.com/ Turner Andrew Hall is offering interactive remote demonstrations (IRD). Here's a little more information- If you haven't registered for the Woodturners Worldwide Symposium, here a way to save $10! Click on the image for more details. For The Newbies- Andrew mentioned in his post about his new inertia sander. Just happens that Rick Turns posted a video about turning a vase. In that video, he uses one of these sanders- Expand Your Horizons- I thought this was a really great way to add a decorative touch to a bowl. Although the author used soapstone, I would imagine many other "fillers" could be used. New Turning Items- Not new, but if you are thinking about getting some carbide tools here is your chance to save 15% on our Easy Wood Tools sponsor's products! https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/Sales/8/Easy-Wood-Tools?utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=ewt&utm_campaign=20-09-ewt-1 Everything Else- Rick Turns video list for last week- The only lathe work I've done this past week was turn 2 walnut dowels for the rocking horse I was kinda happy with the progress until I put on the stain Mimi wanted (not shown). I was expecting the pine to splotch but the white oak really disappointed me. I've stained red oak with walnut stain and it covers evenly. This oak had areas that turned really dark. It wasn't noticeable until I wiped off the excess. Even a second application made no difference. I guess that's what happens when you get free wood. Safe turning and stay well
  2. Any how I purchased carbide tipped chisels. They are the Savannah Carbide Turning Tool Large Size 3 piece set. Which I bought all three of them in one go. Not a tool review by any means since I haven't used them as much. But so far I can say I like them. I started turning a new piece since the other piece I was working on quite literally snapped in half on me any how no big deal. So I put up the black walnut piece that I had started and about a half hour to an hour or so later I had something of a shape turned out maybe it will make some what of a candle holder but it turned into more of a tier drop shape. Link to tools https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GQIYUZA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. But from what I can say I like the round one. Works well hogs off a lot of wood. I was semi swapping back and forth from the HSS to the Carbide the carbide worked alright. I'll post some picks once I get back out to the shed. just trying to figure out a wood screw issue for the face plate, I guess the ones that I was using were too small for it so I will have to buy some longer ones. Any how yea the Wen variable works like a breeze. But did not drop lower than 700 unless I had a tool load on it.
  3. All this talk about Carbide Wood Lathe Tools I thought I needed to try one. Prices are high so i made my own. I used 4140 tool steel for the shaft. I almost messed up when milling the flat. The steel started to work hard from the heat of the mill. The mill made the cut but drilling and taping was tough. Ash handle with brass ferrule. I have 100's of different carbide tips to try. I snapped the first tip when I tightened the screw. I then put a brass washer under the screw and that seemed to fix that problem. It's not been tested yet. I'll keep you up to date.
  4. I have the 3 piece carbon steel turning set that Rockler had on sale last year. They stayed sharp a long time. If one edge dulls, you turn it to a new sharp surface. They are round, square and triangular. Today I went to turn the round one and got an idea. I removed the cutter and placed it on my hand diamond sharpening tool. One side is course and the other fine. The tops and bottoms of these are perfectly flat. I placed the top (cutting edge) down and worked my way thru the course to the fine. It did a good job and I am pleased at the results. The sharpener is from Home Depot and cost under $20
  5. Snow and windy here tonight! Our Patriot Turners- @Woodbutcherbynight is cranking out wooden stemmed wine glasses. He is using segmented blanks to make these beauties- Check out his post and see the nice comments he received. Within that post, he also posted some gorgeous tool handles! Gunny wins the award this week for the most posts of projects! In addition to the glasses, he turned a fantastic little "Q-Tip Holder". He gives us an insight into how this handy item came about- @HandyDan added more information to his ornament and stand posting. Dan's tutorials are always well detailed and photographed. Check out the addition information- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools added some really great information to a resurrected post comparing Easy Wood Tools to some of the clones that have been showing up in the woodworking stores. Check it out so you don't buy a pig-in-a-poke! You may remember from last week that @Cliff donated his Easy Wood Tools winnings, from our Operation Ward 57 Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family, to @Pauley. Well Pauley received the tools and sent his thanks and gratitude for the generosity. What’s Coming Up- Bradley McCalister, from Spiracraft, has posted the dates he will be at the various woodworking show around the country- For The Newbies- Mike Peace posted a very interesting video on a shop made tool used for creating a chuck recess. This tool overcomes the drawbacks of many of the "store bought" tools- Sam Angelo gives us an insight into the differences between buffing and burnishing- Expand Your Horizons- Rick Turns added his list of December 2019 videos. New Turning Items- Ruth Niles sent out her latest newsletter. She has some great prices on her stainless steel stoppers- Here is the link to Ruth's website- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/ Everything Else- Haven't been at the lathe this week. My Mom, who recently moved to an assisted living facility, wasn't happy with the only table in her living space. Finding one that would fit proved futile so I have been working on building one. Safe turning
  6. Thinking back on the controversy surrounding Bosch vs SawStop: How is that any different from the Axe carbide turning tools from Carter Products compared to Easy Wood Tools? This sound to me like as much of a patent infringement as the table saw issue. Taking a very brief look at the Axe tools, the only difference I can see is the shape of the handle. Is that enough to constitute a different tool? Jim, being an official representative of EWT, I realize you may be somewhat constrained on what you can say here, but I would be interested to hear your comments on this, as well as everyone else's.
  7. Well that say the imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Once again another manufacturer is trying to pull us away from the best carbide tools on the market. Checking their tool specifications will reveal that their tools don't measure up to those from Easy Wood Tools. Don't be fooled, buy the best! contact @Jim from Easy Wood Tools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. If you think carbide router bits are delicate creatures, check out this Youtube video from Tom Lipton, a machinist in the San Francisco area. The interesting part starts at about 8:45 and goes to the end. Yep, it grabbed me by the short hairs too! NOTE: NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART! But certainly educational. Jon-439 (from the WOOD Magazine forums)
  9. I drive through a blinding snowstorm today to pick up a killer deal on a Dewalt 735 planer to supplement or replace my Delta 22-580. I know Gene Howe just replaced his 3 blade system with a helical head and gives his approval but how about the rest of you? I read that the 735 is a bit underpowered with the Shelix head and you can only take a maximum of 1/32” pass with it. Any of you guys running a 735 with a helical carbide head? Give me your opinion yea or nay before I drop $400 into one.
  10. On January 3, I got a PM from One of our members, @Dadio, that literally left me speachless. (Doesn't happen often!) "Hi John, I am looking for home for the Raffle prize I won, the woodturning tools set. I am not a turner,and don't have a lathe, not interested in getting into turning any time soon,so I don't need the tools. If you would be interested, I will arrange with John for you to claim the Easy Tool Certificate. Herb" Upon recovering my composure, I got back to Herb and informed him that I would be DELIGHTED! Long story short, today a brown van stopped in front, and the driver handed me a long parcel. The best present I got for Christmas 2018! @John Morris has already informed me that I'll have to try them out and post about my experience, which I will certainly do, as soon as my little plumbing job is finished. It's been a few years since I turned anything, and I am really looking forward to it! Meanwhile, a big THANK YOU to Herb. I would have said he's one of a kind, but there are more like him on this site. Thanks also to Easy Wood Tools for their support of our site. John
  11. Where can I buy a carbide band saw blade? One that doesn't lose its teeth? I am cutting hard woods for making pens. Preston
  12. I have been looking online trying to find some chisels that I don't have to pay too much for. That is no easy task. Sorby has a set with one handle and you install the cutters in the handle as needed. I am sure most of you have seen them. The price isn't to bad for these, I think about $150 for three cutters and a handle. I think I can resharpen them to some degree. On the other hand, there are the other chisels but I would have to sharpen them. If I bought those chisels I would buy a Wolverine jig to sharpen them. There are several ways you can buy the Wolverine jig and I don't know what I need to do about buying them.
  13. Doing nothing this morning I thought I would compare Amazon and Wood Carvers Supply with the same 1/8"bits I use all the time since Woodcarvers supply has the original numbers beside their numbers in their catalog.. These pictured on the left side of the page are the ones I use most ll the time... the 1/4" bits are too big for getting into tight places but some are okay for starting the process. I think I ordered these in the middle of 2015 so they have lasted through all my clocks and still look like new once I get them out of the bottle of lacquer thinner and clean them up with a real fine bristle brush.. The second set of numbers and letters are the ones Amazon uses like the T-18D and T-14D and you have to be careful for they also have other numbers and letters added here and there so the prices will vary up so be aware . These pictures here are of a light grey with no color added. I did order more different kinds but only use the 4 numbers circled so I spent money on some not necessary in my carving... When looking at Amazon they do have the second set of numbers but not all the bits are available for sale. The number RS-34E is listed for 25.50 at Amazon where Woodworkers Supply has it for 14.50. I had to keep looking for Amazon has lots of identifying letters and numbers close with all kinds of prices so be aware. Some of their items are fine grit where all these woodworkers supply numbers are course grit.. Some of the exact number bits are the same price as each supplier but if there is any difference, Amazon is higher. The machined cut carbide bits are good for some places but the real course models will dig fox holes before you can blink your eyes.. so change out the bits before a screw up can't be repaired. The finer cut models will make a smoother surface on the wood than the nugget type bits. These Saburr and also Nugget brand are long lasting and clean up good. When first starting I like to use the 2" Carbide Nugget brand wheel which has to use a 1/4" shaft so I have to switch to my air tools for the first wood removal.. This is on page # 3 of the Woodworkers Supply catalog. I just mentioned this because anytime I go to Amazon I just assume their prices will be cheaper than anyone else but that's not the case when comparing these exact items!!!
  14. When Rockler came out with their version of these tools, I'd never seen one before, I like the idea. I waited until they were on sale and got the set of 3 for small for mini lathes. I do use them a lot and like them. They have a lot of great qualities and can be rotated for another cutting surface. I also resharpen mine on a diamond hone. I do not have a parting tool with a carbide head. That may be my next purchase. I still use some of my HSS tool, but not much. If you were to rate the carbide cutting tools on a 1 to 10 scale (10 is tops) what would your rating be?
  15. I have been looking at carbide lathe tools lately. Man are they expensive. I went on YouTube and watched some videos on how to make your own. I went to the store and bought two 18 inch prybars, a square cutter and a round cutter. I haven't used them yet. Pictures and update to follow.
  16. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools I use carbon steel cutters/tools to turn with and like them a lot. I liked your comments on these and home made cutters. I do have a question. When I take mine out and run them over diamond dust stones.......................am I really sharpening them or am I fooling myself. I can see tiny scratches all over the cutter bit
  17. I made 2 parting tools from an old Harbor Freight saw blade. I used both on a trial piece. Seemed to work great. I made them extra wide so that bending would not be an issue. It wasn't and I may trim them some. Being wide like that causes the tool rest to be extra low and will require some practice. I wish now that I had used a quality blade. I think that the carbide they used wasn't of the best quality. I'll find out on my next project.
  18. I got a Rockler sale note today. They have their 3 piece set on sale for about $100. I paid more for them a year ago on sale. These are quality tools and are small 13" total length and shaft sixe 4", for small or mini lathes. I like them a lot. I also like that I can sharpen the cutters. I do it by using a diamond sharpening flat stone set, does a good job of returning the sharp edge. Warning; They don't keep their edge well...............when you hit the chuck
  19. I had to get a new round tip for my tool. I found out that carbide don't hold up well when it hits a turning chuck. I turned the tip and it worked fine till I hit the chuck again. I am known to jerk when I am surprised. My wife knows to knock before she comes in, however, she forgot Any way, I have found an easy way to keep a good edge on these tips. Harbor Freight has a set of 3 diamond dust sharpening pads. Course Medium and fine. I don't allow them to get very dull before I remove them, place the flat cutter down and go thru the pads. I use moderate pressure and doe a good job.
  20. I recently got a 3 piece set of carbide turning tools. They are very unconventional when compared to the HSS regular tools. I did some of my first turning today with both soft and hard wood. My impressions of the carbide tools is "WOW" However it take some practice and you must make some adjustments. First, they are more of a scraper than a cutter. Second, the tool rest must be lower than normal. Third, you must adjust your thinking when you use them. However, you learn quickly and you find out just how easily these things cut. I really like them. I think that some of the turning did not produce as smooth a cut as normal. Does anyone that uses them regularly feel the same way? Maybe it was just me and after a while my cuts will be smooth. Any input appreciated.
  21. I was looking at the Rockler web site and saw that they had a set of three carbide turning tools on sale They were $60 off and now were $129. I tole my wife that I wanted them for Christmas and she said "Lets to get them" We did and I got their last set. I did get to play a while, but tomorrow I will get serious. So far they are great. http://www.rockler.com/carbide-mini-turning-tool-3-piece-set
  22. $47 - $53 a pop, you make the handle shipping is free. http://www.knotsburls.com/kilian-tools.php
  23. I have been using carbide tip saw blades for many years and have not had a tip fly off. I've had tips broken or chipped off. A friend told me he had one fly off and found it embedded in his ceiling, he thinks. He said it was a cheap blade he was using to cut junk wood. Do they fly off? Ever have it happen to you? If you inspect your blade could you see anything that could mean one may fly off?
