  1. A gentleman contacted me last week about a Easy Wood Tools "David Marks Series" PRO Rougher he would like to sell. Due to age and health issues he is no longer turning. He says this tool has had very light use and is in excellent condition. If you have interest in this tool please PM me or call me @ (859) 246-0294. I believe he would accept any reasonable offer. This is also posted in the Classifieds Swap & Sell Forum
  2. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools provided this article just published in the American Association of Woodturners "Woodturning Fundamentals" August issue. It is co-authored by Chris Caliendo from Easy Wood Tools. What is Negative Rake by Chris Caliendo.pdf The publication also has an extensive compare/contrast article on carbide turning tools- including Easy Wood Tools.
  3. Well again I'm impressed with packaging. I received it today, ups guy was late with it came back to my place after his deliveries were done and dropped it off for me which was nice. Product came in great condition. I have yet to use this tool but I'm sure I will be using it plenty. Over all tool length is good. Will be interesting once I start using it for hollowing but it will be better than the PSI tools I was using previously. I was expecting it this morning how ever as I said UPS guy was LATE shame. Either way here's what you can expect when ordering these tools.... They are quite nicely packaged and boxed. I can not WAIT to use this.
  4. Received my prize burning kit today. Thanks TPW and Easy Wood Tools. Larry
  5. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools reminded me that there is going to be a FREE zoom demonstration made available by Easy Wood Tools, as part of the AAW Virtual Symposium this Saturday, July 11. Part of the demonstration will showcase the new Next Generation parting tool. The ZOOM session with Carl Jacobson at 4:00 EST. Here's the link for the meeting- https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86365312440
  6. I spent a couple of hours with the folks from Easy Wood Tools through their virtual AAW symposium Zoom meeting. It was really nice to be able to put faces and voices with name I had only read. We had the opportunity to asks questions directly to the owners of the company, Zoom participants and the demonstrator- Carl Jacobson. During the meeting we were told that Easy Wood Tools is offering free shipping through the end of July for all orders placed directly with them. With shipping costs today, that can be a substantial savings. I was able to see the new second generation parting tool in action. That's one super tool! Learned a lot about proper tool use and the manufacturing of their carbide cutters. Thanks @Jim from Easy Wood Tools for making the connection possible
  7. @lew, or @Jim from Easy Wood Tools, I was looking at the EWT website at parting tools, and I saw that there is a new one, referred to the second generation parting tool, with a model number of PT150. I looked at several retailers to see what it was selling for, and nobody seems to have it. Is this brand new and just hasn't been shipped yet? Can it be purchased directly from the EWT website? Is the EWT website being updated, and not everything is up yet? I'm not ready to buy right now, but it would be nice to know that it is available when I am ready. Thanks.
  8. 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 route and cut it out of the bottom fit it to the chuck like a dream. I flipped it around on the chuck and linking up the jacobs chuck. That thing worked wonderfully. Glad you guys talked me into gettin it. Effeminately worth the 22 some odd bucks. Also received my pend jaw set still waiting on my big bowl jaws to get here I wound up going with the nova cole jaws. a bit more expensive but I'm sure they will be better off in the long run.

  11. I hope this Wednesday find everyone healthy and save. I just couldn't resist this. I laugh everytime I see it! Our Patriot Turners- If you haven't already check out the new Easy Wood Tools website, you really need to see how our sponsor has done a complete overhaul. Way to go @Jim from Easy Wood Tools! This is @John Morris post on it. Here's the link- https://www.easywoodtools.com/ @Pauley showed us a beautiful silver maple platter he turned. Check out his post to learn a little more about the size and what equipment he used. @Gerald turned several "Friendship Bowls". In his post he tells us about the materials and how he finished them. He received a whole lot of great comments on these beauties. @Ron Altier posted a video of a woodworker creating a Celtic Knot bowl. The video author has some serious skills! @Lissa Hall has been working on turning some mugs and wondered what the best finish would be to be able to handle both hot and cold liquids. She has had lots of input from our turners. Lissa has settled, for the time being, on pine resin. One of Woodcraft's franchises recently produced a video that talked about this very subject. Maybe there are some ideas here- What’s Coming Up- Woodcraft and Frank Beyers posted their latest Turning Tuesday video. This week Frank turned an acrylic ice cream scoop. Notice the use of Easy Wood Tools! Also, Frank's finishing techniques- For The Newbies- A little spindle turning and a little hollowing from Easy Wood Tools! Expand Your Horizons- Sam Angelo demonstrates how to turn an egg. New Turning Items- The folks at Woodturners Wonders and a great 15% sale going on sanding pads and backers. Check it out! Everything Else- Lately it seems everyone of my turning projects have had major complications. When I mounted this bowl blank, initially, the now open end was supposed to be the bottom. The wood, however, was too soft and punky to be able to turn a safe tenon or recess. I ended up moving the faceplate to the opposite end. Then there was an ingrown rotten branch that ran diagonally through the piece. The open end had to be enlarged to remove soft wood which kept flaking off. When I finally got the wall thickness to where I wanted it- The rotten branch area left a void in the side- And to top it all off, the original faceplate mounting holes were visible in the bottom- Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed. Safe turning and stay healthy
  12. @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.
  13. There's just a little over a week remaining to help with our Wounded Warrior Family Adoption project. If you haven't made your donation, yet, please see this link- https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forums/topic/27849-the-patriot-woodworkers-with-operation-ward-57-adopt-a-wounded-warrior-family-for-the-holidays-2019 Our Patriot Turners- @Woodbutcherbynight posted his first impression of his new Easy Wood Tools chisels. Like most of us, he was duly impressed! Check out the really sweet gobblet handles he made and our members comments- We had a couple of questions this week on lathe purchases. First, @Larry Blighton asked our opinion on the Delta LA200 Midi lathe. He received several comments and suggestions. Check out his post and see if you can add to what the others have said- The second question came from @BillyJack. He also asked our opinion on a Delta lathe. This one was a 1440 Iron Bed. Our members responded with lots of ideas and suggestions. Head on over to his post and give him your thoughts- Member @Ron is back with us and is anxious to get going on his lathe. He's looking for some turning tools and asked us our opinion. We all know I'd recommend starting with Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools )! How about the rest of you?!? @Ron Altier shared his "turning's jacket" story. Several members added their experiences and what they are currently using. How about the rest of you. Any favorite chip protection clothing?? What’s Coming Up- Continuing with our randomly selected state turning club pick- https://www.swiwt.org/ For The Newbies- Sometimes, after turning a piece, it is necessary to remount it on the lathe. That can be problematic, especially if the tenon/recess has been removed. Cap'n Eddie recently posted a video demonstrating various ways to hold pieces when this happens- Expand Your Horizons- The founder/owner of Spiracraft produces a weekly live production that plays on Facebook. It can later be viewed on YouTube. Bradley McAllister demonstrates various techniques, procedures and equipment. This is the video from this past Monday- New Turning Items- Even though I have dust collection and air filtration in the shop, I have realized I need more dust protection. Just today, I received my new dust mask. I hope it does the trick. I have an older 3M cartridge mask but it doesn't fit under my faceshield. This low profile design shouldn't interfere. One of my concerns was that my hearing aids and the ear straps would not work together. A quick test run seems to eliminate that concern. It is rated N99. https://www.amazon.com/BASE-CAMP-Breathing-Woodworking-Activities/dp/B07RLLCJZF/ref=sr_1_4?crid=SWIM04A15S7O&keywords=base+camp+dust+mask&qid=1576111628&s=hi&sprefix=base+camp%2Ctools%2C184&sr=1-4 Everything Else- The walnut bowls for Christmas presents are done. The finish was one application of mineral oil and then a second application of hot beeswax/mineral oil. Then buffed out. I did make a lid for the larger hollow vessel. Mimi said it looked like a cookie jar for the Keebler elves. Safe turning
  14. Remember- Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald is trying out some new coloring techniques. His turning/coloring really creates some interesting designs in the wood! Please head on over to Geralds post and let him know how much you like this piece- Gerald also showed us a round hollow form that his coloring really made the grain of the wood stand out! Gerald explains what he did in his post @HandyDan gave us a really nice set of pictures on how he made his baby rattles- Check out his post to see what all went into making these beauties! @Gene Howe gave us a heads up on a video that should be mandatory viewing for every person who operates a lathe. Thanks Gene. What’s Coming Up- If you are near Provo, Utah, Craft Supplies USA is offering several turning workshops- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. Also- Again, clicking on the above image will connect you to more information and registration to this event. For The Newbies- When you start to turn bowls, you generally have two options for obtaining wood. Buy the mostly dried blank or find a freshly cut tree. In either case, unless you turn the bowl from start to finish in one sitting, drying the wood between turnings may be necessary. Rick Turns found a cool and inexpensive way to slow the drying process and reduce the chance of checking and cracking- Expand Your Horizons- Everyone knows I'm a "jig junky". Here's a video showing a shop made jig to use for turning Twisted Boxes. New Turning Items- Last week we displayed a basket weave illusion bowl from @Billy B. If you were interested in trying your hand at this awesome technique, Chef Ware Kits has what you need to get started- Find more on the lits and prices at- https://chefwarekits.com/Basket-Weave-Kits-c9880431 The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a new device to hold your dust collection hose. It is flexible and adjustable! Find out more about it at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/lathe-track/products/trac-vac-flexible-dust-collector Everything Else- Donations- I copied and pasted this from @John Morris. It would be great if each of us turners could help out! "We usually have a fundraiser raffle during the summer to help pay for our community, but my health took a dive this summer, and I never had the time nor the mind to organize our annual summer fundraiser, so we are falling short of our budgetary obligations. We will be very tight. If you are able to donate to our community, a dollar on up, it all helps." If you'd like to donate to our community, please see this page at https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/clients/donations/ I finally put the finish on the little walnut "spaceship"- Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools mini hollowers and their micro detailer ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) Safe turning

  16. If you are hoping to get a great deal on those FANTASTIC Easy Wood Tools, here's your chance!! Don't miss out!!! https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/t/131/Carbide-Insert-Turning-Tools?b=Easy-Wood-Tools&utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=sale&utm_campaign=19-may-ewt
  17. Had the opportunity to sub in a vocational area I usually don't get to see. Worked in the HVAC classroom. Really nice bunch of kids. Well mannered and respectful. Says a lot about their regular instructor- who is a graduate from that same shop a few years back. Our Patriot Turners- Our own @Steve Krumanaker is turning into quite the Cecil B Demille. Steve posted two great videos this past week. One showing Bedan work and the other showing us how to used the Bedan in making a "honey dipper". Awesome work Steve and Thanks!! @Gerald gave us some insight on finding the center of a turning and why the center might not be the center! What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to the show web site and registration information For The Newbies- Over the past several weeks we have been mentioning cutting threads in a turning. The examples we listed all used special tools and techniques to accomplish the task. Capt. Eddie posted a video showing another way to have a threaded project. As always, Capt. Eddie packs a lot of great information into his videos- Expand Your Horizons- Tim Yoder added a two part video on turning a ball (sphere). Tim says he cheated a little by using a jig from Carter- The second part of the video is linked from Tim's YouTube Channel. If you would like to turn spheres but would rather make your own jigs, here is a link to Mr. David Reed Smith's "Shadow Sphere Jig"- http://www.davidreedsmith.com/articles/shadowspherejig/shadowspherejig.htm I used this jig to turn some globe Christmas tree ornaments for the Easy Wood Tools Christmas tree. New Turning Items- New cutters from our most generous sponsor- Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ). These new negative rake cutters will make detailing even easier! Check them out at- http://www.easywoodtools.com/buy-here/ Safe turning
  18. On January 3, I got a PM from One of our members, @Dadio, that literally left me speachless. (Doesn't happen often!) "Hi John, I am looking for home for the Raffle prize I won, the woodturning tools set. I am not a turner,and don't have a lathe, not interested in getting into turning any time soon,so I don't need the tools. If you would be interested, I will arrange with John for you to claim the Easy Tool Certificate. Herb" Upon recovering my composure, I got back to Herb and informed him that I would be DELIGHTED! Long story short, today a brown van stopped in front, and the driver handed me a long parcel. The best present I got for Christmas 2018! @John Morris has already informed me that I'll have to try them out and post about my experience, which I will certainly do, as soon as my little plumbing job is finished. It's been a few years since I turned anything, and I am really looking forward to it! Meanwhile, a big THANK YOU to Herb. I would have said he's one of a kind, but there are more like him on this site. Thanks also to Easy Wood Tools for their support of our site. John
  19. Issue 86 of the Woodcraft magazine has a nice article/project by Carl Jacobson using the Easy Wood Tools negative rake cutters. Carl turns a hybrid wood and resin box. Woodcraft even provides OnLine extras to flesh out the article https://www.woodcraft.com/pages/mag-online-extras
  20. Well it's early, but we couldn't wait to show off our beautiful tree. Decorated with only lights and turned ornaments. Thanks so much again to all of the members of The Patriot Woodworker who donated their beautiful pieces. There is still plenty of time and more room on the tree if you would like to help! Merry Christmas! Jim
  21. Another post due to the generosity of The Patriot Woodworker! This time I have to thank Dan Hunkele AKA "Handy Dan" for these beautiful ornaments. Thanks so much Dan. Also... the EWT Christmas Tree is going up on Friday! More pictures to follow!
  22. Some children of EWT employees had a fun weekend decorating some of the donated unfinished Christmas ornaments. This is not all... more to come!
  23. This piece is full of cracks, knots, holes.... and I love it! I can't stop picking it up. I love the colors and grain patterns in this. Anyone have a guess as to what this is? 11-1/2" X 3-1/4" beeswax finish.
  24. A special thanks to Ron today... He sent 2 ornaments to Easy Wood Tools about a month ago, unfortunately they were lost in the mail. Ron went above and beyond in his efforts and today we received a very nice package. Thank you so much Ron for your generosity and beautiful contribution to our Christmas tree. Thanks again to all of you who have sent us ornaments, I can't wait to put the tree up this year!
  25. I think all of us appreciate what @lew does for all of us here on The Patriot Woodworker. His skills and generosity are off the charts! We received a package here at Easy Wood Tools today... Thank you Lew
