  1. It's been a busy week for me but no turning. Computer upgrades and a 1960's tube type stereo problem. Can you believe a 6GW8 vacuum tube is $49.95 + shipping!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan posted a pictorial journey of a super cane he made. He explained how he made this beauty and gave us some really great tips! Please check out Dan's post and see how he did this- @Ron Altier used his new Easy Wood Tools faceplate to turn a sweet little pine box. He explained how he felt about the new faceplate in his post- Ron also posted a picture of the new faceplate. Everyone who has used the Easy Wood Tools faceplates agreed with his assessment. @Gerald showed us a "twisted" box he turned. At first I thought it might have been made on a Legacy lathe but Gerald explained how he did it- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools shared a video with us from the "Dread Knot Workshop". This really demonstrates what can be done with the new Easy Wood Tools mini hollowers! What’s Coming Up- The American Association of Woodturners 33rd Annual International Symposium Raleigh, North Carolina July 11-14, 2019 Registration can be done at- https://www.woodturner.org/page/2019RaleighRegistration For The Newbies- @Gerald shared a link to a video series on Beginning Woodturning. The videos are from Fine Woodworking and the author is Mike Mahoney. You can find the link in Gerald's post- We all know lathe chucks are expensive. Every once in a while we might stumble into a good deal but unfortunately the chuck threads and the headstock spindle may not match. Mike Peace put up a video explaining how spindle adapters/inserts may just allow you to take advantage of that good deal- Expand Your Horizons- Some time during the past couple of weeks, one of our turners posted a recommendation for a turning text. I believe it was @Steve Krumanaker. Steve wasn't sure if he did it but he knew the book I was trying to reference. Click on the above image for a link to Amazon to see more about this book. New Turning Items- The folks a Woodturners Wonders have a new respirator available. I'm not sure how this would work with a face shield- Check out the specifications at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/cleanspace2-respirator Everything Else- In case you missed the separate post on this https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Tim Yoder has a two part video on turning "Drink Covers". Tim's videos are always a treat to watch. Check out his use of his Easy Wood Tools!!! Part 2 is linked from Tim's YouTube page. Safe turning
  2. I received my new aluminum faceplate from Easy Wood today. I was surprised how lightweight and small it was. I was expecting it to be a bit larger, but glad it is small (2" dia) I turn a lot of small pieces on my mini lathe. Of course I had to try it out. I recently cut down a small crab apple tree that has been dead for a couple of years. I salvaged what I could, a couple of pieces about 8"long and 5" dia. I looked at it closely and figured it was too far gone to be any good. My new faceplate worked great........the wood didn't. After I got down about an inch or so, I was worried that it could come apart......I quit. However I really like that faceplate. I intend to use it a lot more, it is easy to use and easy to remove.
  3. Another Mike Peace Tip-
  4. Some work is too small or otherwise will not fit a chuck so a sacrificial faceplate is the answer. I save my cut off scrapes that are left in the chuck after cutoff for these faceplates . To clean the surface for attachment use a spindle gouge to cut the surface to a slight concave . This will give an outside surface for the glue contact. Put a small bead of thick CA (preferred but can use thin) on the faceplate and spray accelerator on the blank. Mount the blank and can then spray more accelerator. Wait and appropriate time for a bond and then the faceplate can be mounted in the chuck for turning. Once turning is complete the blank can be released with a chisel in the glue joint and a sharp rap. You will need a pad or plastic bucket to help catch the turning .
  5. Well I finally got into the shop today and finished up the lil bowl I started last night at the last minute right before the sun set. I rolled my lathe out to our patio because our garage is still full of our household kitchen contents from the flood we had over the summer. Even with the shop empty of foreign items, this is an outside process right now. So I just had about 15 minutes last night before it got to dicey to be turning in the dark. I was able to mount a chunk of walnut onto my Easy Wood Tools 3.5" Diameter Faceplate and get the outside of my lil 5" diameter bowl turned, then I shut it down. Woke up this morning ready to roll and finished up the bowl in about a half hour, it was so fun I went for another! I am finally getting a chance to get to know my Laguna 16-43 Lathe. I love it. The first image is my bowl roughed out while mounted to the Easy Wood Tools Faceplate. In order for the Easy Chuck to work, I have to shape a bottom or base that will be the base of the bowl, and it has to be angled slightly in order for the jaws to grab. A by-product of this being the case is, it looks good too, I like the base the bowl ends up with. In order to be sure the Easy Chuck was going to be a good fit I did a test run before moving on to the next step. I mounted the Easy Chuck to the base just to make sure. I also hollowed out the bottom ever so slightly to ensure that it would sit flat. It took me about 15 minutes to sand through the grits to 600, basically burnishing the outside of the bowl to a nice sheen. Once I was satisfied with the outside of the bowl, and after the test fitting of the Easy Chuck at the base, I removed the bowl and flipped it and chucked it into the Easy Chuck, I love this chuck! We are ready for hollowing. After I hollowed out the bowl, I hit it through the grits again to 600, and brought it to a nice sheen. While it was still chucked up to my lathe, I applied BLO, I know there are better alternatives for a finish, but I am winging this right now, I don't have much knowledge yet in this skill, nor do I have the proper tooling, at the ready. But I am learning. My first bowl finished. My second bowl did not take as long, I am already feeling very comfy on my lathe and the tools I use, by the way I used the Easy Rougher and the Easy Finisher, two tools to complete these bowls. My second bowl below. I am starting out small guys, I am not confident with the big stuff yet, both these bowls are 5" +/- diameter. Bottoms Top I really had a fun couple of hours with these guys, I can see myself coming home after work and gravitating to my shop for a quick bowl. I can see why this is do addicting now. Also I am using the Easy Wood Lathe Tools, they are a joy to use, I have no frame of reference to compare them too, but for this newbie I experience only a couple digs and that was because I was rushing it, other then that they worked flawlessly, and for this knuckle head to be able to jump into this as easily as I had, that says a lot about those tools. The Laguna 16-43 Lathe is smooth and nice, I love the variable speed lever it comes with, the lathe is heavy, and solid, and I can't wait to get some big stuff on there, thanks for sharing my first bowl adventure guys.
