  1. Hi all, I'm looking for someone who might be able to find / make me a small pencil-holder type vessel out of African Blackwood. Any suggestions?! Thanks so much! -C.
  2. Need a big coffee mug I can carve on. I have measurements. Wondering about the cost and feasibility. Thanks 😊!!
  3. I was watching a woodworking show on PBS and the guy was cutting Large dry pieces of a stump on his large bandsaw. He said to always use spray lube on the blade and to turn the wheel by hand until you see that all the blade is coated. Then wait 3 minutes before using. He did not ID the make of the lube. He also said it does a terrific job. I have heard of using Pam cooking spray, but this was designed for saw blades. Any ideas on the manufacturer?
  4. A Navy buddy picked up some old tools and is looking for some help identifying them. Any ideas on these??? Thanks!
  5. Hi to all, The other day i made a post and got few replies. Thanks to those who did it. In my E-mail program I clicked on blue button that says "take me to page?". But it nevewr did. How do you go there? Also, while reading people's posts where do I click if I want to respond to that person? I'm sure I'll have more questiopns, later... LOL Cheers, Ynot (Tony if you read it backward)
  6. I have a spindle lathe and I need to know if I can use the mid-size carbide turning tools? I have the Robert Sorby Sovereign System and the connections are so far forward that it gets in the way. I have to have my rest way back from my work that it makes it hard to turn. Also, the connections get in the way when I need to get into tight places. So what I need are some new turning tools and I have been looking at the AXE and the Easy tools. Will the mid-size tools work for me? https://www.hartvilletool.com/product/6102/robert-sorby-sovereign-system
  7. I have been in contact with Shelix about getting snipe for a little over a year now. They tell me that they know they have a problem and are working on it. You guys that have a DW735 and are getting snipe with a Shelix cutter head please help and call Shelix and maybe we can put a little pressure on them. If you have fixed the problem please please post the fix. http://www.byrdtool.com/shelix
  8. Been working on my first chess board. Made from 5/8" Maple and Mahogany. Glued to a 1/2" MDF Backer. Turned out great. Made the frame for it out of bass wood. About 5 days between making the frame and ready to glue up the frame to the board. In the mean time, the chess board has begun to warp. ! ! ! ! All grains are lined up (didn't think about crossing the grains of the pieces for the board. Warping is almost 3/8" from end to end. Afraid to glue up the frame to the board as it might also warp the frame. Does anyone know how I can get the warp out of the project ? ? ? ? ? This one has me stumped. The only thing I can think of at this point is to sand off the MDF and find 1/2" plywood and try glueing it up cross grained. Even thought about a steam iron. Help
  9. TPW forum contributors are a great bunch of folks with a wealth of freely shared knowledge, from which I've greatly benefited. However, as most of us do, I participate in a few other forums, too. Recently, I encountered a perplexing problem that I posed to one of those forums. And, I promised to "sing the praises far and wide" of whomever could help me solve my dilemma. I should have known that the guy who gave me the info I needed would be one of our own. So Stick, your invaluable assistance is greatly appreciated. A big THANK YOU!. This is a promise I'm very happy to keep.
  10. I bought eight blocks of wood 6 x 6 x 3. I got two each of four different types. All eight are totally covered in a type of wax. I took a piece of walnut and while turning a bowl I could tell it was very wet. Will they all dry over time with the wax on or do I need to remove it?
  11. Having worked for a machine shop that made cutter heads for Owens Corning Fiberglas for a short time, I learned a couple of lessons after fighting the skiddeness. I said, 'What the heck: They were free so try to learn something new! I tried to take the same number of strokes on each one, use the same amount of pressure throughout, and file at the same angle. On a handsaw, you should file the top of the teeth first; only if they are not the same height. Also, it is important to set the teeth with a hand tool. I have two of them, and found that there are a lot of them available on ebay; I bought the second one at a yard sale, and the other one was inherited. I picked up an almost new Disston a while back in a thrift store for $5.00. It is dull, so someone abused it. This is going to have to be put on the back burner for now since I have had three motors to stop on me, and I worked on them for a short time for past week when possible since I take care of my wife who is disabled. Now, to the rust: I prefer electrolysis because it takes away the rust better than anything I have tried. To learn how to do this, you can find information on YouTube. Hope this helps someone.
  12. We have been most fortunate to have a surge in membership. As of right now, we have had 27 new members since last Friday and I believe most (if not all) have come over from Wood. There's always a learning curve to a new site so if you you can't figure something out there are folks here to help. Get in touch with any of the moderators like Charles Nichols, Gene Howe, Lew Kaufman, or Fred Wilson (did I forget anyone?), the two site administrators John Moody of myself or the head honcho himself, (the boss, the man, the legend) John Morris. We'll try to steer you right. That's why they pay us the six figure salaries ($000,000)
  13. I was contacted by a friend of mine to make her several stirring paddles for apple butter making. Below is a picture of a broken paddle she had. I also have a picture of the end of the paddle. The actual making of the paddle will be no big deal. My problem is choice of wood. The wood is very light in weight. The wood will be emersed in a very hot citrus mixture. The wood can not transfer any of its characteristics to the liquid. What do y'all think about what wood I should use for this project? Basswood, Poplar, others???? Thanks for your help Fred - aka Pops Shop
