  1. After getting my shop back to near normal, I found a small piece of spalted maple. I was going to turn it down, but I could see it was not strong enough to take it. So I made a design, drilled it with 2 sizes Forstner drills, cut out the center and shape on my bansaw. I had to hand sand all surfaces because it was not real solid anywhere. Some of it was so soft I didn't think it would hold up. It looked OK so I sprayed it and added a silver bell in the center with a chain an bling.
  2. Need some help/insight. 1st off I don't do pens, the wife does. BUT occasionally I get drafted into it and refusal is not an option. the set up: Craftsman bench top drill press a dedicated vice to hold the blank the proper sized brad point drill bit for the desired hole. the problem/question: when drilling the hole 8 times out of 10 the hole will be angled through the length of the blank. Both in wood & acrylic. Same result while drilling using the lathe. Is that a problem with my technique? the grain direction? the set up? the equipement? I try to clear the chips while drilling----she doesn't-- NORMALLY. So do you turners use a press or do you drill while on the lathe. How do you, if it can be done, cure/alleviate the bit from wandering? More questions to follow as I think of them. thks smitty
  3. Found this video interesting. We all have those old "dead battery" drills to make this from.
  4. Is there a BEST way to drill a hole thru a cylinder that you have turned down. If you have a piece 8" long X 2" in dia and you want a quarter inch hole going completely thru it, is there a best way to accomplish a straight hole, end to end? My attempts were OK, but could be better. I know someone has a tip or two to share. Thanks
  5. Hi all, I ask this question, because i am having a real hard time finding a drill bit or drill bit set with any quality other than bad. I have purchased 2 7mm drill bits over the last few years, and both were pretty much dull out of the package. can someone point me to a place that makes quality drill bits? I prefer Brad point, but it isn't absolutely required. Thanks
  6. Had two wooden cones that hold fire hoses' brass handles brought to me to reproduce. One is about two feet long and the other one ft. Both have 5/16" holes drilled through middle for bolt-on. My floor standing drill press only has about 4-5" travel. It was a pain to drill, not knowing if the long bits would stay true. Fortunately, after about 1 1/2 hours, I completed the holes on one, and they were right-on! I glued short dowels in each end and turned them to fit the brass hose handles. It was quite a task, but was glad to provide assistance. The wood I used was mahogany, and they looked pretty good when finished. The fireman that is doing the restoration had to retire over a yr ago. He was pulled out of a fire, unconscious and paralyzed from the waist down. After 3 months, he was awakened from an induced coma to face mandatory retirement. Fortunately, he is still able to carry on his taxidermy business. How could I refuse to help him after learning his great sacrifice! Thanks, Billy!
