  1. I thought I would move this one over here. So I came home from a trip to find one of my SS's missing. It was the Power Pro that I have used for years as my lathe. It was a misguided attempt by my wife and son to get me a new lathe for Xmas and give my son a second SS. He is a pretty serious woodworker in his own right and has wanted a Power Pro for a long time. He did pay for half the new lathe for which he could have easily purchased a PP upgrade. A new lathe in my shop would require that I get rid of one SS no matter what due to spatial restrictions and the sentiment was very nice. I would h
  2. So far so good really enjoying Myrtle wood for turning. It turns even better than poplar. So I got some of these small blanks as I said from Rockler to do small projects so far I've had pretty good luck with shopping with them. A bit on the expensive side but yes so far good to order from. Had zero issues. Now with this project the problem I keep running into is chisels catching on the side. I've still got a touch of refining to do on the outside but I wanted to get a start on the hollowing to see how thick or thin I wanted the project. But So far its turning out. I went the mortise ro
  3. 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.
  4. 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 th
  5. 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
  6. @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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.)
  11. 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 Woodturnin
  12. 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.
  13. 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")
  14. 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.
  16. 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- @R

    Nova G3

    For my spindle lathe is this something I need, and if I do would this work or maybe I can get by with something cheaper. 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

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 b

  21. Another Mike Peace Tip-
  22. 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
  23. 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 wi
  24. 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
