  1. I thought I would move this one over here. So I came home from a trip to find one of my SS's missing. It was the Power Pro that I have used for years as my lathe. It was a misguided attempt by my wife and son to get me a new lathe for Xmas and give my son a second SS. He is a pretty serious woodworker in his own right and has wanted a Power Pro for a long time. He did pay for half the new lathe for which he could have easily purchased a PP upgrade. A new lathe in my shop would require that I get rid of one SS no matter what due to spatial restrictions and the sentiment was very nice. I would h

  3. Sanding may sound elemental but to get that good finish it is essential part of the process of turning to a finish. The best way to improve your finish is to first learn to turn to a better finish off your tools. This will take time so lets look at what to do till that happens. Always sand from beginning grit to finish grit. Do not skip grits. My progression is 80,120,180,220,320,400,600,800,1000,2000, 4000. Unless my finish off the gouge is good those steps are followed. Might start at 60 for a bad piece of wood , yes it is always the fault of the wood . For most turnings I only g
  4. I saw there is at least one other Craftsman model 113 lathe in this group (or was). I was just given a 113 for free (and wondering if I overpaid?!). [the model 113 is distinctive because it has a 2+" tube as a base] What do you do for parts? Specifically, the adjusting wheel on the tail, but probably more before I'm done! Thanks
  5. These don't come up very often anymore, one of my bucket list items to own someday in the far off future, I've always loved the styling and reputation these lathes have. The home made jig apparatus attached to it is a home made duplicator. Great price at 1200.00 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/388294729242078
  6. @Gerald, I owe you an update on my lathe since you were kind enough to help me over the phone. I think it was a year and a half ago. As a refresher, I was/am having an issue with my Jet 1442 lathe with a Reeves drive. If I shut it down at the highest speed, the hand wheel would turn just fine by hand, as it is supposed to do. If I shut it down at the slowest speed, the hand wheel is extremely stiff to turn. Very difficult to turn by hand. Now for the update. There is an industrial supply shop a few miles away from Wichita that does warranty work on Jet lathes. My lathe is way out of
  7. I'm hoping this will hold the 380 some odd pounds of lathe. I just don't trust the flimsy metal but I guess it could be fairly sturdy ones the main body of the lathe is setting on it at least I hope it is. I'm not going to be lifting it by myself. I did notice that the main legs of the lathe itself were TOOO short for me to use so I cut down a couple of 2x4s to sit underneath the legs of the lathe and I will lock those into place. From there I will bolt the 2x4s into the concrete. I also plan on securing it to the wall some how maybe with a couple of 2x4s and drilling through the legs and
  8. I recently got a Cedar board for a small box container. I wondered what it would be like to turn. I started turning and my shop turned into a very aromatic zone. I know it keeps moths out of you closets and I also it is not a good idea to breath the dust, so I had all my protection on. I had only turned a small piece and was wondering what I would do with it. Then my wife pulled the car in the garage (my shop) and immediately loved the smell. She asked what I was going to do with the turned piece. I said I had not figured that out yet, so she said "I want it" I think it will go either in a clo
  9. Finished these off today I'm turning thinner and thinner in wall thickness and bottom thickness and its getting easier to do with out blowing through the bottoms of the bowls. They came out nicely so I'm quite happy with them.
  10. @Gene Howe what do you see in this machine? Taking the machine images at face value, assuming everything works, would this be a good deal? https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/tls/d/shopsmith-mark-5-tablesaw/6645360301.html
  11. So you get a Shopsmith and it is new to you. This versatile machine will do or help you do many things in woodworking. Some folks think that this machine is only a lathe, but it is so much more. This is dedicated to the Mark V (500 series - 500, 505, 510, 520 including the Power Pro). You should inventory to see if you have the following parts. In the lower left is the powerhead with the quill showing. On the masonite board are the tool rest, live center, dead center, box with faceplate, adjustment insert, and tail stock. Of course the mighty and almost univers
  12. Not really sure why but I’m finding that moist or wet woods / blanks are just so much easier to turn then if it’s as dry as a bone. Either way with this one I’ll at least get to try out my new bowl gouge. Short hand sand paper supply is out so I’ll have to pick some up tomorrow. I tried slicing off the corners on my bandsaw on this one but the bandsaw I have is just not powerful enough for that even going slow. Either way here’s what’s been done so far.

  14. 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 ro
  15. Okay folks got some issues here. The 2 inch by 5 inch piece that I got from Rockler the other day. I sanded off the wax seal off the wood yesterday. Today I started turning it. Nothing has cracked so far. Handled really well on the spin up. I went with the face plate method on this one. How ever this is my issue. I've got a good shape that I actually really like for this small bowl. Its simplistic which is what i like. Not too complex either. How ever if I cut a mortise or tennon in the bottom, that would not leave me with very much wiggle room sort to say on hollowing this thing o
  16. I am starting to understand why you guys have been saying pine can be awkward or challenging to turn.... none the less, oh and yep the chuck made this 50 times easier than messing with a face plate.
  17. As my bowl project is temporarily on hold, I started up a new project this morning looking like it’s going to be a cup. Well now that everything is roughed out to the shape I want, both projects are on hold until I get my new chuck on Thursday. Either way a double bonus my lathe extension bed arrived today haven’t even un boxed it yet. The question on finishing is once I get to that point in order to make them both usable what time of finish would be safe to use with out getting some crazy type of poison from a finish. Recommendations are always welcome. So I have a couple days to debate
  18. Okay so I’m not going to be able to do any turning today. It will have to wait until tomorrow when I can get some items from Home Depot. With that being said I put a block of oak up on the lathe with a cut off blank for the face plate to attach to I spun it up and the thing started walk-in across the bench... Thing meaning lathe. How ever the lathe does not offer any specific way to really bolt it into place so I’m looking for some suggestions on how I could do this so I can turn larger objects more safely. Here are some shots of it. Thanks ahead of time.
  19. Okay I'm running into a couple minor problems. I basically ruined a piece playing with the new jaws but that's okay. I was prepared for that. A new piece is being glued up and getting ready to be worked hopefully for later this evening. How ever I'm running into a slight bit of a problem and am in need of some advice. I've been using short screws with the face place in order to make sure it says tight. That worked for a bit now I'm finding that sometimes the screws are actually getting broken off in the face plate which is not a good thing. meaning the heads snapped off. Probably due t

    Well Now

    I’m fairly pleased with this turn out. I did not use the dovetail jaws on this one just the face plate. I guess you could say it’s okay for a beginner candle stick holder we shall see. I’ve still got to put a coat of wax on it I just finished with the boiled linseed oil how ever I think the wax will just add more too it. I used nothing but carbide tipped tools. I was going for the more rugged beat up kind of look and got it. So once I get this thing cut off from the base I guess I could call it a successful turn.
  21. Any how I purchased carbide tipped chisels. They are the Savannah Carbide Turning Tool Large Size 3 piece set. Which I bought all three of them in one go. Not a tool review by any means since I haven't used them as much. But so far I can say I like them. I started turning a new piece since the other piece I was working on quite literally snapped in half on me any how no big deal. So I put up the black walnut piece that I had started and about a half hour to an hour or so later I had something of a shape turned out maybe it will make some what of a candle holder but it turned into more of
  22. Hey guys well bad news the harbor freight order fell through so I canceled it out all together any how I'm looking at something a bit better of a product anyway. I am looking at a Grizzly Industrial 16 inch by 46 inch Wood Lathe with DRO I am wondering if any of you guys use this particular model for your turning and if it would be a better investment over all rather than spending the 400 on a harbor freight that could just turn into a piece of junk and just out right spend the money on something decent. I am able to purchase the item as is, fortunately if I do purchase this it would basica
  23. So for the first time I'm at a stand still on wood turning for the moment. The plug on my bench top lathe decided to break, so that wont get fixed until I can get my electrician over here to wire me a new cord. Well that happened to be the perfect excuse to order a new lathe haha. So I picked one up I did go with the harbor freight one since I'm just the hobby turner and newbie. How ever I'm hoping that the faceplate from my Wen will fit the harbor freight lathe. Any how with that being said I wound up working on the project and where I've gotten so far was a small goblet rather than a ca

    First Turn

    I've had this lathe for several years now,..just hadn't jumped in yet. Today was the day. Had some blue spruce that I recently cut down,..tree was dead..it seemed dry enough but after the bark was knocked off it acted like it wanted to fray a bit,...so I got into my curly maple scraps. I knew it was dry. Keep in mind I've never turned wood and my choice of species may have not been ideal,......but live and learn. All my tools are hong kong specials straight out of the box,....I'll upgrade when I figure out what I use the most. Before my next session they will get a good sharpening
  25. So that pretty cedar bowl I turned, my first one, got a healthy crack in it after I applied many coats of beeswax to it.. IT has been a number or of weeks since it was made. Can You all explain to me why this would happen so I can prevent it in the future? What did I do wrong? I do plan on just adding some epoxy or resin to seal it up but i am a bit sad that it happened.
