  1. YEP you heard it sorry for the double threads today guys but the first bowl is beginning to take shape. After I got the blank turned down which took a while, the shakiness of the lathe worked itself out. It will be interesting hallowing this one out lol. Sadly this one will have a flat bottom but that’s alright. I think I’ve stood up for about as long as I could today the joints are feelin it.
  2. What a week! Hope this Wednesday finds you all safe and healthy. June 1st started our annual site fundraiser/raffle. Our generous sponsors have kicked in some fantastic prizes. Please check the announceent- Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier used some spalted Maple to make another fantastic ornament! Ron continues to use this UV finish and it really looks like it does a fantastic job. Check Ron's post for his description of a "happy little accident" @Ron Altier also started a great discussion based on something that @Lissa Hall posted. Lissa showed us her first bowl, Ron wondered what our first turnings were. This sparked a bunch of comments from our turners. Why not join in and post a picture or tell us what your first turning was- @Ron Altier is this week's winner with the most posts! He asked us if/how we lubricated our scroll checks. He received several responses. How do you keep your scroll chuck running smooth? One of our new turners, @AndrewB considered a new lathe. He asked use for input. Although Andrew has purchased a lathe, you might be able provide advice on using the one he bought- @AndrewB Also purchased some carbide turning tools. Check out the ones he bought and the pictures of the project he turned- What’s Coming Up- Looks like all of the live, in-person symposiums are cancelled through the summer. However, Cindy Drozda is doing live remote learning demonstrations. Her next one is Saturday June 6. Here's her video with more details- For The Newbies- Turners make things round from stuff that is square. Often there is a need to cut the the round turning to remove the part we want. If the diameter is small, a hand saw works well. But on larger pieces, the bandsaw is often the tool we use. Cutting round pieces, perpendicular to the length can be dangerous if not held securely. Mike Peace has a short video showing how to make a jig to safely make this cut- @AndrewB mentioned he is interested in turning bowls. I found this video, from BB turning, that covers the basics of rough turning a bowl. Although he uses traditional turning tools, the process is basically the same for carbide tools. Expand Your Horizons- I don't think I would ever have the patience to do this but Carl Jacobson makes it look easy. The basket weave illusion has been around for a bit- Carl shows us how he does it. I was particularly taken with the jig/platform he uses to draw his straight lines. Tim Yoder is always fun to watch. He shows us that not every turning needs to be proportioned by the golden ratio, have a flawlessly sanded surface, inlaid with colored acrylics or finished with 2000 layers of CA. At about 2 minutes and 40 seconds into the video, Tim uses a really neat way to secure lose pieces of the blank he will turn. I think this might come in handy for securing bowls to Big Easy Jaws and Longworth chucks. New Turning Items- If you are a pen turner, you know the importance of trimming the blank to the exact length of the tube insert. Some turners sand the blank while others use a barrel trimmer. Some of the barrel trimmers don't do an outstanding job and need to be sharpened. This set uses carbide inserts so it will cut cleanly for a long time. Although a little more expensive, it comes with virutally every size pilot reamer. Each piece is available for individual purchase. Click on the image for the link to the website and more information. Everything Else- Rick Turns' weekly video listing is available- I had every intention of sanding my elm bowl this week. But you know about "the best laid plans of mice and men..."- Sunday evening Mimi asked me to go to the basement and start the laundry. Getting things ready, I noticed some water on the floor. Not Good! In the back of my mind, I have been half expecting the 15 year old water heater (the one with the 6 year warranty) to be about at its end of life. Sure enough it had sprung a leak. So, Monday it was a trip to Lowe's. Got the new one plumbed in by the end of the day- fortunately we have the electric type. Got the mess cleaned up yesterday. The problem was how to get the old one up the basement steps. Gravity was a great help taking the new one down; not so much bringing the old one up. Luckily a friend was available and the carcass is now in the bed of the pickup. So the bowl sets for a bit longer- Safe turning and stay well
  3. Just got a email from Woodcraft with a article on making a jam chuck. This is the most unique work holding method I have seen and I usually just improvise with a piece of inner tube. UNIVERSAL JAM CHUCK
  4. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools, or anyone in the know, does EWT make a lathe chuck for the Shopsmith? I thought it was discussed at one time, or perhaps considered for development? Thanks guys.
  5. While doing a bit of clean up in the shop, while waiting on the gas meters to be switched out ( inside for a new outside one) found this...thing.. The brass end has a logo of sorts... U.S. A.A.F. While down at the other end... There is a N O 2. There is other markings around the other side...from what I can make out.. GEO WORTHINGTON CO BUFFALO NY USA Now, about that chuck... Even my smallest chuck keys look HUGE, compared to this chuck...not sure what size jacob key this takes, or where one might be found..chuck works fine, just can't lock a bit into it... had to clean the rust spots off, oil things up a bit. So...what is this thing from WW2
  6. Ok guys what do I need to know when buying a lathe chuck? what do i look for? how do i know what size to get etc etc... I have tried looking the information up but have only become more confused. thanks for taking the time to respond.

    Nova chuck.

    I am fairly new to turning anything bigger than a pen. I bought a Nova chuck that takes the two steel rods to tighten it. I turned down the end so I can tighten the chuck on the outside. As soon as I touch the tool to the wood it comes flying out of the chuck. The piece of wood is around 4 inches in diameter and 8 to 9 inches long. The tenon is 2.25 in diameter and I did cut the angle on the inside. Anybody know what I could be doing wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.
  8. I'm wondering where most woodturners keep their chuck key. Since I have had no instructions and am self taught, maybe there is a standard place and I just don't know. I have a two pin type chuck and keep the pins magnetically attached in a convenient place. WHERE DO YOU KEEP YOUR KEY? (The push button switches are wireless remote vacuum switches.)
  9. Abbreviated edition tonight. Life here has taken an entirely new direction. Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN showed us the beginnings of a vase he is going to turn. This will be from a glued up blank. Rusty shows us some additional images in his ongoing post- Last week we posted a bowl by @RustyFN. That posted generated lots of discussion on methods of attaching a turning on a chuck. If you missed the follow-ups, here's the entire post- What’s Coming Up- Please join us for the 4th Annual Woodturning symposium on October 4th-6th Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration For The Newbies- Mike Peace has a short video describing how to use a "non-turning" tool to help make duplicating on the lathe a little easier. I have used this idea in the past and it really works! Expand Your Horizons- The AAW has offered a free digital download of Woodturning FUNdamentals. You can get your copy here- https://www.woodturner.org/page/FundamentalsSpecialCompIssue Mike also has a review video of the D_Way beading tool. The tool is available from- https://d-waytools.com/ New Turning Items- Tim Yoder create a beautiful handle for a new stainless steel honey dipper. Everything Else- I did manage to find a couple of minutes to put finish on the little hollow vessel I had turned. The finial was the one I used the spreadsheet formulas to design. Safe turning
  10. A lot to cover this week so we'll jump right in! Our Patriot Turners- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools not only sells the best turning tools available, he knows how to use them, too! Gorgeous walnut bowl!!! Check out Jim's post and the wonderful comments he received on this beauty! @Bob Hodge showed us a fantastic cherry bowl he turned and embellished with some of the gems his wife collected. Please see Bob's post for an explanation of how he added the gems and all of the great comments and tips our members provided. @Gerald is our big winner this week for new posts! He continues his collection plate progress. He showed us a surprise he found inside one of the pieces of pecan he is using- You can check his progress in this post- Gerald was also kind enough to give us a link to a video about "What You Need to Know to Get Started on the Lathe". Check his post for the link and comments from some of our turners- He even turned a neat pill box! He received some good natured kidding about the size of the pill that might be contained therein- Gerald had a visitor, in his shop, this week. His grandson came by and they turned a platter together. I have fond memories of being in my grandfather's workshop. @Ron Altier is in full swing making ornaments. Ron creates some spectacular art using the "Spectraply". Check Ron's post for more details about this piece and the great comments he received. @HandyDan gave us a heads up on lathe chucks for sale at Grizzly. The prices looked pretty good. What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- When we first start turning, we seem to concentrate on what lathe tools we should purchase. When actually one of the first things we need to concentrate on is safety. Craft Supplies USA has a sale on Trend Airshield equipment. https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/t/89/Safety-Supplies?b=Trend&utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=sale&utm_campaign=19-june-trend Expand Your Horizons- Lyle Jamieson has a short video covering some tips on sanding turnings with voids and natural edges. New Turning Items- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools showed us a new set of Easy Wood Mini Hollowing Tools. If you turn smaller items, this is the perfect size set of tools! They have excellent stability and control. The negative rake cutters reduce the chances of catches. Easy Wood Tools has done it again!!!!! Everything Else- "We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join." With that in mind, I am throwing out this idea. Here's a video from Capt. Eddie. Please watch it and consider if maybe the Patriot Turners could get involved. Let me know what you think. Safe turning
  11. Saw this on another site. Looks like a great price. I don't own any so can't say how good they are. They are said to be a Vic Mark clone. https://www.grizzly.com/search?q=(altcategory:"Summer+Sale+Specials")+AND+(category:"Wood+Chucks")
  12. I have a Porter Cable cordless drill with a 3/8 keyless chuck and it is about 5 years old. I really like it. However the keyless chuck has started coming loose and dropping what ever I have chucked in it. Is there anyway to rehab it to its normal gripping power or is a new chuck the only answer?

    Off Center

    This is the first try with the off center chuck. This is green bradford pear and for this did not do well, so will sand. And after some sanding is better but blurred some lines. It did not show a a three axis turning well until I centered and turned the bottom and top. More on this later.
  14. Just to put things into perspective, there are 48 shopping days 'til Christmas. Our Patriot Turners- @Monkey Paws Is getting back into turning and he posted his latest project for us. Our members had lots of praise for his beautiful piece. Please give his post a read and add your comments- @Steve Krumanaker has been busy turning and decorating bowls. Steve showed us two of his latest- Check out Steve's post for more images and a description of the different woods he used- @Ron Altier's Christmas ornament production is in full swing! Check out this beauty- Ron explains how he put the jewel in the center- @RustyFN asked about a food safe finish for some bowls he turned. Our members offered several suggestions- What’s Coming Up- Mark you calendars for the Raleigh, NC Woodturning Symposium- Click on the above image for registration information. For The Newbies- @RustyFN asked about food safe finishes for a bowl. Just this past week, Mike Peace posted a video on making his version of that finish. This is my goto food safe finish. For cutting boards, I usually apply several coats of pure mineral first so it penetrates deeper. Also, I usually heat the mineral oil/beeswax before applying. Expand Your Horizons- Tim Yoder has a new, two part video on making a Christmas ornament. In this one, Tim uses a laser cut kit as part of the design. The second part of the presentation is linked from Tim's page. The kit is available from Ron Brown- https://www.ronbrownsbest.com/index.php?route=common/home New Turning Items- There has been rather a lengthy discussion, this past week, comparing the Tormek sharpening system to the similar Grizzly system. One of the ideas floated in that discussion was about CBN sharpening wheels. A turning products emails I received had this information- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/cbn-wheels Everything Else- The Woodturning OnLine newsletter came this week. The article on Thin Stem Turning, by Alan Carter, looks really interesting- The PDF can be found at- http://honoluluwoodturners.org/16_tips/Alan Carter_thin stem tutorial.pdf Also, as @PostalTom pointed out, there is a cute video of a BIG pepper grinder in the newsletter- The entire newsletter is at- https://www.woodturningonline.com/ Finally, Rick Turns has his October list of turning videos available. When you check out these videos, please give Rick a Bravo Zulu for all of his hard work producing this information Safe turning

    Nova G3

I finally got my lathe going late last week and I see right off you guys make it look a lot easier than it is. https://www.woodcraft.com/products/nova-g3-woodturning-chuck-bundle-teknatool?trk_msg=15VJHDAQTL24N3TTFFLR31K50C&trk_contact=H5U8HIFMO58CJKFU635VCUHNUG&trk_sid=Q5TDA8LMRVILK5VF0OGAEKA3Q0&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=NOVA+G3&utm_campaign=Let's+Talk+Turkey

If you are making some basic ones that will need finished, they have volunteers waiting! Check out @John Morris's post for more details and where to send them- Our Patriot Turners- Speaking of ornament, or turners have been busy! @Ron Altier sent our friends at Easy Wood Tools these beauties- There was a bit of confusion as to the identity of the maker but it all got straightened out in the end- Ron also showed us a new type of design that did not require any turning- Check out his post in the General Woodworking forum- Last week Ron posted a thread on his "Inside-Out" ornament. Several of our turners added to the discussion by showing us some of their work and procedures. Here is the post again so you can catch up- Ornaments weren't the only thing happening here this week! @JohnM got himself a mighty fine new (used) lathe. He received lot's of comments about his purchase- John was not the only one getting new stuff. @RustyFN got a great deal on a new chuck and a bunch of jaws! @Cliff put his metal working lathe to work and redesigned his wood lathe dust collector system. Check out his post for additional information and the discussion from our members- @Steve Krumanaker turned one of the most beautiful maple bowls you will ever see. The grain in the wood is stunning. More images and our members compliments are here- @Ron Altier asked if any of our turners had ever worked with one of these pen kits- The discussion that followed ventured into the area of pressure pots and stabilization- @Gene Howe posted a link to a shop made jig for sharpening gouges. It is similar to the Wolverine jig. Here is the link, however, you'll have to copy and then paste it into your browser. Our site software won't paste it directly as a link- http://lumberjocks.com/projects/397921 What’s Coming Up- Virginia Woodturning Symposium Sponsored by the Virginia Woodturners, Inc. November 3 & 4, 2018, Expoland - Fishersville, VA http://www.virginiawoodturners.com/?utm_source=Regional+Event+Virginia+10+12++2018+&utm_campaign=regional&utm_medium=email For The Newbies- I really appreciate @Gerald's suggestion for items in this new area. One f the first techniques for a new turner is making a spindle. Mastering this type of turning leads to all kinds of interesting projects- rolling pins, candle holders, salt/pepper devices, etc. Here is a 3 part video showing the various stages of creating a spindle that eventually becomes a spinning top- Of course there are many, many sources for learning to turn. Hands on instruction can't be beat. If there is a turning club in your area or a Woodcraft store, check them out!

    Won On Ebay

    Won a bid on new SN@ chuck today. Apparently no one else bid. got it for 100. Been thinking of getting the 4th already and this tipped the scale. Hey 4 sets of jaws set up and ready
  21. some gozillion years ago I was given a twin state Sgt Welsh rotary vein vacuum pump that fell of a truck. No really it fell off the truck & got damaged ( just the belt shroud) but there was an insurance claim and this one was unclaimed so the shipper gave it to me. And a decade or so later I'm finally trying to put it to use. I got a small air tank and welded bungs to it so I can run 1" piping to it. It is the vacuum reservoir in case of power failure. Then mounted it and the pump together around a corner on the other side of a wall and ran 1" copper to the lathe with a parker needle valve and a vacuum gauge and LOOKY MA I can hold a great vacuum and even lower the hold to what ever HG I want with the needle valve . AND When I shut it off it holds the vacuum for a good long time. The reason for the large piping is over a long run ya gotta have a big pipe a small one just doesn't work well
  22. I have never posted into this Wood Turners area, so I guess this is a first. A friend asked me to cut him a 16" Longworth chuck so today I tested my drawing that I did in Fusion 360 by cutting a 12" chuck. Looks like it came out just fine so I thought I would offer them in our Etsy shop. You can click on the link in my signature and see the offering but I didn't want to post a link like I was pushing it, just thought you lathe guys might want to see this - I used to turn a fair amount and still have my Oliver 8' bed lathe but it's not being used 'cause it's 3 phase and I don't have time to do any turning anyway. So if y'all see something in the Etsy listing that doesn't look right or that I have worded incorrectly I would appreciate a heads up. Thanks! David
  23. Elvis has an old song, with these words," Did you ever have one of those days when nothing goes right from morning till night? I still have one occasionally, they don't have the serious effect now that I am retired, but still aggravate the heck out of me. I started with an idea about a Christmas tree ornament using the manufactured wood that is layered with contrasting colors. It all went bad after that. I just got started and for some reason my chuck became very stiff. I really don't know why, except that the dust may have gotten in the mechanical moving parts, combined with sloppy splashes of finishes. I disassembled cleaned and lubed with dry teflon spray. At last I am ready to go. NO, a honey dos pop up. Gotter done. Got it set up and bingo, tare out due to a soft place. You can see how this day was going to go and it did. One thing I am is persistent. Thru all the interruptions, miscues, and aggravations.............I remain kinda calm and am determined to make something out of this piece (pieces) Late in the afternoon I have it where I want it and part of it flies off to never never land. I will find the piece and I will take a picture and .......or.......I may throw it as far as I can.
