  1. 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
  2. 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")
  3. 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.
  5. 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 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.

    Nova G3

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
  12. 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
  13. 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

    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.
  15. 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.
  16. Is there a way to grip finished pieces in the chuck with minimal damage? I want to center and redrill an eight inch hole in a small piece. It is bamboo and I'm thinking that it will splinter out. Never drilled that stuff.
  17. Managed to get a four coats of finish on the first batch. Took the time to hang the beads in a few. Went to the surplus store down town and picked up some more lumber. These are Maple 4.5"X30" boards they sell for $1.95. They are a glue up of two thinner boards to achieve the 4.5". I can get six ornaments from each one. I cut four of them up and have enough to make 24 more ornaments. Notice the rubber bands on this group. In the last thread Gerald mentioned seeing them done without gluing them. I thought it out and figured I could clamp the one end in the chuck and tape the other end. It is a little fussy but still saves a lot of time over gluing them. I get the four sticks lined up with the rubber band on them and put a couple clamps on to hold them together while I mount them in the chuck. I then take some filament tape and wrap the other end. It works surprisingly well. After the first turning I turn them inside out and glue them for the final turning.
  18. I got that arbortek thing mini grinder. Call it a birthday present to myself. And I can't rally say why but later I ended up on the Craft Supplies web site eyeballing a set of expanded jaws for my Vicmark to hold reversed bowls and such to turn the bottom Then I was eyeballing a longworth chuck. Started thinking I should get the biggest I can fit The Limit on RPM bothered me. It's for turning the bottom of a bowl dag-nabbit I don't wanna be limited to 600 RPM and what I'm turning a smaller bowl than my capacity and it's just phenolic so if I drop it, it'll be toast. Besides I'm already using a Doughnut home made rig. So I decide that's what I'll stick with. I can center work on it just fine and I can make as many sizes as I want with almost no effort; so that's that. But then I got into the eccentric chuck. Looked at a few videos of the work you can do on it and didn't like any of it. But I got a better idea I have a wild idea. It starts with some heavy steel plate a 5" steel ball and some welding and work. I think I'll prototype it first in wood. The idea is to hold work at wild angles Maybe I can do it without the steel ball. I do like the idea of the steel ball through it's kind of macho.
  19. This is a tool gloat and midi chuck question. I recently won a bid at a local online auction and got these tools for $66.40 for all of it. Nova 48111 Midi Chuck with Tommy bars One inch wood threading kit Long Ranger III remote switch It is all in great shape and works as advertised. My question is the midi chuck. It has a very limited range of opening compared to the One Way chucks I have which use a key instead of the Tommy bars. I took it apart and know what I am looking at and it is fine. Does anyone have one that can confirm this. If I hold one bar still the other bar turns only one revolution.
  20. 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.
  21. I have a Jet mini with most of the accessories. I had never used the screw pictured until yesterday. I glued some scrap together and made a bowl. When I used the screw, it didn't screw on straight and true with the wood, even though I had a drill press hole that was square to the surface. How far do you screw it in, all the way to the collar? How do you do it?
