  1. I have a soft spot for awls, ice picks and pin vises. Seems I can't pass one up when I see it at a sale. It does have to be reasonably priced though. If the tip needs replaced in a pin vise I found auto brake spring links can be reworked for use as seen in the upper right corned. The end from a long stemmed spring will work too. Get the Dremmel out, cut it to length, chuck it in the drill and sharpen it on the belt sander. For the Exacto knives the sharp end of a big safety pin works well. I like to use it when trying to get the release paper off the double stick tape. I have one ice pick that is new old stock and has a protective cardboard tube still on it. Here is a couple pictures but there are more I didn't gather from the metal shop out back.
  2. My first one was really clumsy. it was mostly wood and nothing I did would hold up well. I used 3/8-16 threads and huge knobs and still I couldn't get a solid positional clamp; it kept flopping. Anyway this one is all aluminum and steel. I made it tool-less. There are knurled knobs for everything. I had an extrusion I mounted to the back of the lathe and hung it all from that. The threads in the aluminum are all helicoils.
  3. Well I guess I'd better start thinking about doing some Christmas shopping, maybe on Saturday... Thanks to all of the woodturners who participated in our Gold Star Christmas Family raffle. It's going to be a great Christmas for those kids! Please continue to tag your posts. It really does make site navigation easier. @Steve Krumanaker posted a really beautiful walnut bowl. The finish is absolutely flawless. Checkout this post! @HandyDan made a BUNCH of string tops- Check out how he did it and his great repurpose of some of the wood- @Joe Candrilli posed a question about turning and dust collection. He is turning Alumilite and the curlies were not being collected by his dust collector. A great conversation about this ensued- We have discussed different dust collection techniques here, in the past. While looking for help on Joe's question, I did run across another solution that may work for other dust material collection. The video is a little long but you may get some ideas from it. While on the subject of Alumilite, turning, shavings and Christmas, Rick Turns creates an acrylic Christmas tree- Some of us may be lucky enough to get a little cash from Santa. If you are looking for a new lathe chuck, Mike Peace has posted a video comparing/contrasting some of the chucks on the market. While the information has presents is great, in my opinion he has overlooked the best chuck available anywhere- the Easy Wood Tools chuck. Buy the EWT chuck first and you'll never need to buy another. Merry Christmas! Safe Turning
  4. Hi all. I hope you can provide a bit of advice. I just started using Alumilite full time in my shop. Love casting with it, love turning it, but my dust collection system hates it. I have an Oneida Dust Deputy with its own dedicated shop vac. Up until this point the system worked flawlessly, everything in the bucket and little into the shop vac itself. I was going to build a shop vac silencing box last weekend and took the system apart to measure the shop vac. I opened it up and was surprised to find it full of long, thin ribbons of Alumilite. So I set the system back up and did some testing and found that the ribbons are so light they just spin at the top of the dust deputy and eventually find their way into the shop vac vice falling into the bucket. Of course I did what any respectable tinkerer would do and attempted to fix it. I found some screen door material and put it over the center suction of the dust deputy and voila! No more ribbons in the shop vac. Now they gather on the mesh and clog the suction limiting the suction at the point of collection (lathe). So now I have to stop every 5 minutes or so, stop the shop vac, smack the dust deputy (or worse, take it apart again) to clean it, then go back to work. Am I the only one having issues like this? Wood, acrylic, and everything else works as intended. Alumilite seems to be so light and thin that it just goes right up the top suction and out to the shop vac.
  5. I have been wanting to hook up my vav to my drill press. I gave it some thought and came up with this. I used super magnets, an old lamp flex shaft and Dap Rapid Fuse glue. (It was free, from an offer on this site.) It held really great, however you must remember it is a CA glue and must be handled as CA. I custom made a wood block with 3 small super magnets and two large iron magnets. I put it on the bed post so it would always follow the work. It works really well and stays in place. The flex allows easy positioning.
  6. Looking at tools and machinery the other day: Cabinet saws are Walker Turner at least 70 yrs old, Craftsman drill +, Powermatic 65 cabinet saw- probably at least 50+, wife- married 54 yrs, but she's 39! I know these machines can't last forever, but I have a personal guarantee to! North American Missionary that cannot retire until the devil does.
  7. I have a Jet mini and wanted to use a vac to help with the saw dust problem. However I have very limited space. I got some cutting board plastic and some quarter inch styrofoam from the dollar store. I used some left over tape from a furnace duct job. The kind that has real aluminum. I sized it for my limited area and put in a support with an adjusting clamp. It turned out OK and I am anxious to start a new projedt.
  8. I'm at that point where I'm ready to start that final opening at the lathe for DC. What do you have why -- do you like it what would you do different? Got pix?
  9. I got my DC to each machine but the lathe and the router are open questions What do you do for DC at those stations, what would you prefer - - - and why? Post pics pls thx
  10. This is an old picture of a bunch of my turnings. They are assembled on top of the marble game I made. The picture is dated March 07
  11. New to this board and have introduced myself on the newbie forum. I like to turn everything from tops to ornaments to bowls. Not a professional but do sell a piece now and then, mostly small stuff. Here is smattering of some of my recent turnings. Wood migrants, I apologize, you will already have suffered through most of these. Thanks for looking! Steve
  12. Lew I saw in your "turned round" picture, your set up for your vacuum when turning. Does that work well? Do you use all the time or just for sanding? I've been thinking about a vacuum set up, but haven't come up with much yet.
  13. The other day I posted a lathe project which prompted a question about my dust collection system. First off, I have to say I am the worst when it comes to dust collection. I just simply forget to turn it on. Anyway, the question was about the lathe collection. I have a 4" collection port at the lathe. It does a pretty good job of getting most of the dust as shown. I also have a short 4" hose (not shown) that can be positioned nearer the turning to make collection even more efficient. I use a couple of bungee cords to hold the extra hose in place. The main collector sets next to the lathe- The metal garbage can contains a shop made Thien separator. To help control overall dust, I made an exhaust fan from an old furnace blower and mounted it in the basement window- You can see from the dust on the filter, it does pull the air to the window. In fact, it does such a fine job that I have to make certain the furnace isn't running when I fire it up or it will pull the fumes into the basement. Also made a similar device that sets over head, near the lathe. Currently the filter needs to be upgraded to remove finer particles, but you get the point. A couple of more connections-

  19. We have been cleaning up the shop the past few nights and so I laid out all the hammers. Some are old some are newer. The one on the far right is a Williams, early 1900's. And when you need a hammer, there is never one close!
