  1. So I've been on the fence about this. I know I really enjoy having my carbide cutters I like them. How ever I think its due time that I do go back to getting into HSS gouges. So I'm currently trying to research decent HSS gouges for myself that wouldn't be too expensive and way out of my price range. I'm also looking into a stone bench grinder for sharpening and some sort of jig for getting the angles rather than just eyballing it. If you guys have any suggestions on certain tools I'm all ears. I'm just not looking to break the bank.
  2. I am looking at a low speed grinder at Home Depot. It is made by Wen. It is 1750 rpm. Comes with one white 60 grit wheel and one 120 grit white wheel. They are 8 inch wheels with 5/8 shaft so it would be easy to upgrade to CBN wheels later. It cost $105 and has a two year warranty. What do you all think? https://www.homedepot.com/p/WEN-120-Volt-8-in-Slow-Speed-Bench-Grinder-4286/205413322?source=shoppingads&locale=en-US&mtc=Shopping-B-F_D25T-G-D25T-25_9_PORTABLE_POWER-Multi-NA-Feed-PLA-NA-NA-PortablePower_PLA&cm_mmc=Shopping-B-F_D25T-G-D25T-25_9_PORTABLE_POWER-Multi-NA-Fe
  3. Our Adopted Family Christmas Project was a complete success. Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to the raffle winners! Our Patriot Turners- Lots of great projects and discussions this past week! @Ron Altier started us off with a sweet little birdhouse ornament! Ron tells us a little about this turning and the little additions he added- @Steve Krumanaker embellishes some of his orders with an inexpensive laser. Steve shows us just how versatile one of these machines can be- Check out the c
  4. Spent a whopping $10 on, too.... Think I paid too much? A Cummins Mack? Runs nice and quiet, no vibration....new wheels, too...

  6. I have an OLD Sears grinder that the cord has seen better days. 1/4 HP 115V 4.5 amp split phase motor, 2 prong plug. Length of cord is about 6' I can't tell by looking at the cord what size (AWG) it is, no markings it's that old. So for a 1/4 hp continuous duty grinder is 14 AWG stranded wire ok? Or 16AWG? Suggestions? Just get an extension & cut the female end off? wire it black, white & ground the frame. or just buy 2 wire lamp cord & wire it up? or buy a 3 wire (white, black, ground) piece from the HD roll & put male end on it? Thks s
  7. "Back From The Archives" I picked up this machine last week along with some other machinery and I have not been able to figure out what it originally was. I was told that it came off of a military vessel (probably a "victory" ship) and I suspect it has been modified to add the drill chuck. The motor has a plate on it identifying the manufacturer as the American Electrical Tool Company (1 HP, 440 volt, 3 Ph) but there is nothing to tell me what the machine originally was. There is also a small plate which appears to be a military plate stating "Battle Creek
  8. I just came off of building two large bookcases so I needed some play time in the shop. I built 2 walnut and cherry flag cases for my Etsy store but at my wife’s insistence, I built 5 coffee mills. One for my son, one for my daughter, two for the store and one for me. I did learn that there’s a huge difference in the mechanisms. I originally bought them from Amazon (Penn State) and they were junk. Tried my go to store of Woodcraft but they didn’t carry them. Rockler had them on sale for $20 so I bought 6 of them.
  9. Yesterday I managed to extract myself from the busy life of Honey Do's and kids daily events and get a little time in the shop with our Claro Rocker. A week ago when I started laying out the arms ontop of the arm pads that are basically the top of the front legs, I realized I made a major mistake in my calculations for the arm rests to meet up at the proper height to the joint at the rear leg/backrest area. I was a full 1/4" too low, the joinery was not going to meet up where it was supposed to by my previously laid out joints. After much thinking and tinkering with ideas and layouts, I
  10. Since it is less < 10 this doesn't qualify as hoarding either. Just rescuing these great hand grinders from the scrap iron pile. And they all work, a few are not OSHA approved though.
  11. So, I finally have a jig saw, an angle grinder, some mica powder (for epoxy resin), I found a local wood shop for things I need done that I can't do myself (planing an uneven slab, etc)... I feel like a kid turned loose in a candy store LOL I ordered the wood carving bits for the angle grinder (not the $145 Arbortech that I had been looking at), more jig blades... I feel like I'm about to get myself into LOTS of trouble LOL I'm probably going to go get the 2x4's that I need to make that wavy flag, get the shop to plane them to the same width (
  12. A project earlier in the year foreclosed on the real estate it once lived on. While not a woodworking tool it is a must for many other aspects used in woodworking. It is not unusual for me to have projects that require metal working and woodworking, ceramics etc. etc. You want it solid so it doesn't move, but also not in the middle of the way of other equipment when using them. Like most my shop space is limited so you have to be creative. It started with a box that had to be mounted firmly to the back of the bench as well as in the front. Used 1/4 xn 20 bolts to do this in the back, dri
  13. Install a lid. and a seal coat. Found some water a-going across the Dungeon floor today. Figured I get the lid on, and then seal the wood up. First the hinges a bit of chisel work with just a few hand tools. Scratch awl is a Stanley. Used it to make some pilot holes, then ran a screw into each. After start to get things together....found the hinges were on up-side down....ooops. Re-install the hinge, right side up. Brass screws that came with the hinges were a bit too long. Grinder made them the right length. Lid also has a pine cleat on one end, to keep a

  15. Stumbled upon this tonight...worth the look...once in a lifetime goldmine find for NIB vintage tools. https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/tls/d/vintage-craftsman-and-other/6655669969.html
  16. Hey I don't want to suggest something you might not want but for what you suggested you are in to, an air grinder should be considered if you have a reasonable sized compressor and not the screaming kind. Because die grinders take 1/4" bits they can hog off more material than the 1/8" bits I prefer on carving. Also Wood Carvers Supply has the bits in 1/4" size and will do the same as the 1/8" bits I use but much faster.. Also if you don't have yet, Bring up Wood Carvers and check out their 2" carbide nugget wheel # 264866....and hold on to your hat for it will throw wood all over the p
  17. Grooming something this small needs a jig so I turn the whole piece into a big jig large enough to hold on to. I screwed the Rook to be to a piece of 1/4" piece of BB. This let me hold it true for a cut on each side with the band saw. Then grind away till it matches the other one!! Used different wood so a little staining might help. I found something close. So I took it outside and shoot it with some clear to see if the color was still close after the clear Dried. I used maple and they had made the chess set with cedar. The lady thought onl
  18. Okay Master of the great wood turner, lathe tool sharpening queries.... I have both a grinder and a table top belt sander. which do you think is better to use for a beginner and which grit for the sander and grind wheel. i was watching videos but they dont tell me. so i am looking to the masters for help.
  19. Had to go to the big city for c-scans and other stuff and then headed for HF for a couple of air angle drive grinders. Back when I was wheeling up and down the roads with a truck load of Mac Tools in my earlier life I could not justify buying these type of air angle grinders for my price back then was at least 120 or more and for hobby play things I couldn't afford them. One of these was 13.99 , the other was 19.99 so wife said get both. But wait, when we approached the check out stand I told the clerk I decided not to get the 15% off coupon for one item cause before I punched th
  20. I'm done with the Chicago Electric crap! First grinder I had for three years light duty, it took a dump 6 months ago, just stopped working. Second Chicago grinder I purchased right after, used it twice in the last 5 months. Went to fire it up today to cut back some stucco on our home, no worky. Dead as a door nail. I don't have time to take it back, write an email to CS, or write a letter, if time is money, I'd burn up the worth of that grinder in the first 10 minutes. Guess where I just filed it, on the round file. Looks brand new don't it? It's a piece of CRAP!!!!! A b
  21. How would I go to making angle forms for a grinder? I have CBN wheels and a platform on the grinder.
  22. My grinder just stopped working, I remember this happened about 5 years ago, and I was able to get it to work again by pushing a button, I think, to reset the trip. Now I cannot find it! Does anyone have one these grinders, and if you do, where the heck is the trip button? Please see manual attached, I could not find any diagram of a trip button in the manual, yet the manual does state if equipped, you can reset the trip. Warning, clicking on this link downloads the manual to your PC. Chicago Electric Right Angle Grinder.pdf
  23. Went back to that estate sale this morning..with a camera. I only had $2 on me. so not much was bought...however Best I can do, without a tripod under the camera. Would barely fit in the back of most pick up trucks... They made a bit of a mess in the place This was just laying around on the floor... That be the Line Shaft laying there. Scrollsaw? 50 degrees outside, cold breeze coming in the open doorway, Hands were a bit shaky. 2 Drill Presses? Post drill has it's own motor, biggem needed the line shaft. Check out t
  24. Well, I did get the sockets that were in that tool box's bottom all cleaned up Ain't they cute? The front row has a mystery to them, though.. While the back row is all square drill sockets, the front row is a "Hex" drive.....almost a 1/2" Allen size? Ok, about this Cordless Grinder. Yard sales today, found one that had a grinder for $10...but, no motor? Did a little "bandit work" and got it for $6... Turns out, I am the motor. Needs a little oil in the two oilers. Since my bench is a might too thick, I had to grab a 2x3 block,
