  1. I thought this was an interesting build on the SO forum. Origin-built Lathe and Disc Sander - Projects - Shaper Community (shapertools.com) Paul
  2. I recently had a chance to play with some beading tools, something I'd never really used before. However, they weren't mine to keep. After returning them I found that I missed what they could do. So, I invested in a 3/16", and a 1/8" beading tool from D-way tools. I like wooden handles so I purchased them un-handled. When I received the tools it occurred to me the cutting edge could be easily damaged. Knowing they are not a tool that will get daily use I needed a way to protect them from getting knocked to the floor or dinged up if in a drawer. I also do a club demo now and then so how to protect them when transporting? I had an idea to make a self storing, reusable handle and this is the result. Not real pretty but I think it will work well. It's a take off from my collet handle video with the handle drilled out to accept more of the shaft. This is with the tool in cutting position. This is with the cutting edge stored in the handle. The fittings are less than ten bucks at my local hardware. I used a 3/8" compression by 1/4" FIP straight and a 1/4" FIP close nipple.
  3. well here is the shop, daughter #2 showed me how, my my its so simple, lol, hope i don't forget how. pic one is from south side, you can see the re located chop saw, gonna build base cabinets in length of about 10 ft and a few uppers above. #2 is from in front of lathes, you can see the baker racks we use for parts and drying racks. also above the clean room (8x20) you can see the mezanine where i store a lot of exotic lumber. #3, is a shot from table saw to rear door, orange cabinet holds a mini mill, and to the left you can hardly see is a grill covering a metal lathe, ( i dable making old, old gun parts) #4 corner where the band saws, drill presses, you can see a groove jig , this one i got right, worked out. #5 shot from by the orange cabinet jointer, 15 inch planer and table sw in pictures #6 see old router table attached to a mech box, its gonna go away later this week, and general work space, #7 The new router able, hope to have up and running later this week now that i know how to post pics, i'll throw some up once in a while rj in az
  4. The walking stick is done and has the first coat of boiled linseed oil on it. I used linseed oil because that's about as good anything for outdoor use and it's very easy to re apply as needed. I really like white oak and walnut together. After a few coats of oil this will get a rubber cane tip on the bottom.
  5. Way back in 2000 WOOD magazine published a project called, "a wood turners walking stick", or something like that. When it was published the closest thing I had to a lathe was a shopsmith. No one, especially not me, would've called me a wood turner. In fact, I didn't even want to be a wood turner. When I did turn something purely out of necessity it amounted to a little bit scraping and a whole lot of sanding. Never the less, this wood turned walking stick project really caught my eye and I decided I'd try to make one. I did but I actually bought a spindle sander to make the finger profiles in the handle because I didn't think I could form them on the lathe, you'll see what I'm talking about in a minute. I then asked my wife if she'd like one. She said yes but she didn't like those finger things and could I do a checkerboard thing or something. Again, I had no idea how to do that on a lathe but here is what I ended up with for handles. This particular stick on the right I did make on the lathe as I have since gotten a little better than I was back then. This post however, is about how I did the crosshatch. Since I didn't know how to do it by hand I decided to make a router jig to do it. Funny thing, I didn't know how to do that either. Well, it worked. I made the handle, threw the jig up on a shelf and forgot about it. That was over 20 years ago. A couple weeks ago my wife asked if I'd make a couple walking sticks for Christmas. One of them will be for our grand daughter and she is tiny. Wife said, "you'll need to do the checkerboard thing again cause her hand is to small for the other type of handle. So, the last few days I've been trying to figure out just how the jig worked. Getting close now but still have some issues with it crosshatch.mp4 Like I said, a real Rube Goldburg contraption, it's based loosely on the old Legacy ornamental mills. I'm pretty sure when I first made this I used a hand held router. Just cannot remember exactly how I did it. You can see, in the second half of the video I've got some issues with slippage on the drive end. I know how to address that though and should get good results tomorrow or the next day. There is only one video, don't know how to get rid of that screen.

    Do you have a small lathe? Do you turn pens; little lidded boxes, finials, ornaments; hollow forms; and other tiny projects? Do you want to create fine details? Then our Micro tools are made for you. Handles are one-of-a-kind grained American Maple with a copper ferrule that gives strength. All tools come with a fresh standard carbide cutter already installed and a hex key that fits the mounting screw. Three types take your creation from start to finish, in three colors so you'll know which to reach for:

    Used to prevent whip and vibration in long or thin spindles while turning, this heavy cast iron Steady Rest features three adjustable ball bearing guides with a maximum capacity of 3". The Steady comes with two spacer blocks which allow it to be used on lathes with 12", 14", or 16" swings.
  8. Today our club got involved in teaching our youth to turn. This is the second school we have gone to and demoed woodturning. We go thru safety and tool use then do a short demo. Today was my turn to do the demo. We have given tools to the first school and probably a lathe to this school. neither school has lathe stands and plan to build or buy one. We may get really busy at this.
  9. Sometimes when I'm doing a turning there will be a piece left in the chuck that's big enough to get something out of. Often, I'll make an ornament body, or a finial or roof. Scavenged through the pieces this morning and had enough to cabbage together four birdhouse ornaments. I also had a request for a couple Ashley Harwood style ornament stands so I did those up too. The wood on both stands is walnut, the darker one has red aniline dye on it.
  10. My daughter got me a couple of wood turning gifts for my birthday. One was a pizza cutter and the other was a measuring cup set. All required me to turn handles. I have posted the pizza cutter, it came out nice. The measuring handles were set up to be turned on as a pen would..........I had none of the required equipment and have no desire to make pens. I went to Youtube (Sam Angelo) and found a way to do it without any more new lathe parts. I turned a wooden headstock piece to mount the workpiece on (not sure what to call it) you can see in the first picture in the chuck. It worked fine and I was very surprised that it did with only minor slippage. I intend to use different colored woods for each of the others so if you see a red handle, you will automatically know it is a half cup measure. I do have a question. When doing the final assembly......should I use glue or will the force fit be OK?
  11. I made a glue up of purple Hart & YellowHart about inch & half square. I cut the end into a pyramid on my table saw then turned it on my lathe. I cut it very slowly with a fine blade. Then moved it to lathe for final turning
  12. "Back From The Archives" I recently ran into some financial trouble and had to sell a couple of my machines to make a few house payments. One of them to go was my beautiful Heavy 10 South Bend lathe. It took me about a week to start having lathe withdrawals so I posted a WTB ad on the local classifieds and got several calls. I ended up getting a little Atlas 618 6" by 18" metal lathe for a hundred bucks. The lathe is in great original condition and came with a 3 jaw chuck, lantern style tool post holder, and a very nice tool post grinder that is probably worth several times what I paid for the lathe. (crappy cell phone pic) It didn't come with a stand so I took one of my Delta stands out of the rathole and used that. I added some drawers and mounted the lathe to it this weekend. The center section with the drawers slides out of the stand so I can still access the nuts and bolts used to mount the lathe and motor. The light is a 2 dollar light I got from the local thrift shop. It will work for now until I can find a nice vintage one. The drawer pulls I made out of 1/2" bolts. I cut them down so they were about a 1/2 long, faced the back side with the lathe and drilled and tapped them for a No. 10 screw. The wood is all reclaimed wood from some shelves that I took down in my shop a few years ago. I still need to add a switch and I have a quick change tool post ordered for it. Looking for a steady rest and follow rest for it if anyone has one they want to get rid of. They come up on Ebay but they are pricey.The Atlas is pretty much the same machine as the Craftsman 101 and takes the same accessories. I was worried about the lathe feeling like a little toy compared to my South Bend but overall I am very happy with the lathe. It should work fine for what I need it for. Thanks for looking, Shane
  13. I'm looking for advice and suggestions about how and where to sell. Do I refurbish, all or partial? What about shipping away from my location? How to price? I have my father's woodshop equipment bought in 1948 (have original invoices). Includes table saw, scroll saw, band saw, shaper, wood lathe, grinder, drill press, and belt sander, located in Washington State.

    Vase

    Working on a vase for my wife. I started with a piece of cherry 6” by 6” by 12” long. I think I will need to build a steady rest to hollow it.
  15. I got my steady rest done. Just waiting on the wheels.
  16. Ileene has been wanting a turning with globe for one of her prize baseballs. Fun and quick ! Paul
  17. In February 2018 after searching the local ads for a couple of years I came across this Logan 11" lathe ( model 922). It looked to be fairly complete and when I inspected it I found very few problems. It came with both a 3 and a 4 jaw chuck as well as nice steady rest. It was misssing the peg leg and suffered some damage as a result. I ended up paying $1200 Canadian (about $900 US at the time). Moving it was an experience as it is heavy and I am not young. Luckily I had watched Mr Pete's 222 video on disassembly. Took as many pieces off as possible. The tricky part was removing the bed (heaviest part) as the bolts also connect the legs. Ended up with the owner holding onto both legs while we lifted the bed. When I got it home I stored it in a pile and there it lay until November . I should say the in the interim I carefully inspected each part for damage and searched down all the parts needed. Finally in mid November I got started. The paint although it looks good in the first picture was terrible. Three coats with the final one being spray bombed on everything. Much of it was flaking off. After weeks of scraping, wire wheeling and buffing then repainting everything was ready to reassemble Finally got it all put together and ready to make some chips. I has been close to 50 years since I last ran a lathe so it may take a while to get back up to speed . Should be fun.
  18. 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 go to 400. How long do you sand with each grit? Answer=Till all scratches from the previous grit are gone. How do you see those scratches? Answer= LOW-Angled light on the surface. Sometimes these scratches show better if you do not remove the sanding dust but be sure to check after dusting off too. There are occasions when you will find scratches after a higher grit and in this case go back two grits and continue to follow progression. Is power sanding a good idea? Answer + can be used for at least part of the process. Do not power sand at full speed , a medium or low speed on the sander is sufficient. Do not press on the sander, its weight is plenty of pressure. Use hand rotation of the piece on the lathe, speed causes the sander and hand held paper to skip on the surface. Do not hesitate to work more on a problem area but be sure to feather out the area to disguise the spots symmetry . When possible sand with the grain by hand on the last two grits. In power sanding use a softer pad under discs over 180. Now what do I use. Sander Ridgid Job Max(corded) for 2 inch discs. Pros orbital sander (air Powered) for 3 inch discs. Sanding mandrels for both are from WoodturnersWonders.com in a system of Rolox pads with hook & loop. Paper for sheet I use Norton 3X and pads are Mirka gold from TurningWood.Com And Abralon pads Backup pads save your hook and loop on your mandrels. There are many ways to mount paper on handles , and inertial sanding handles that spin from the lathes power. For sanding inside hollow forms I use long locking tongs with the paper wrapped around a foam pad. For this lathe will need to be turning at a slow speed. You will find your own solutions and mine are not the only way to get there. When you find it necessary to sand on lathe under power always use speeds of 250 or less.
  19. When I was kid, there was a toy that just fascinated me. The problem was I could never figure out how to play with it and make it work. I must've had 4 or 5 different versions and it was always the same. I would read the directions, try, fail, re-read the directions, try, fail until eventually I'd give up and forget about it. I did forget about it for almost 60 years. Today, for the first time ever, I made this amazing toy work after making my first version of it. I'm talking about a throw top, try as I might as a child I just couldn't make one work. Recently, I stumbled on to a video and the guy said something, it clicked and I thought, can it be that simple? It was, As a child I was reading the directions for a right handed person and never considered that it would be backwards for a lefty. Sure enough, the first time I started to use this one today it would've been backwards again. I know that might be hard to believe but I've never claimed to be the sharpest knife in the drawer. Here is my very crude first throw top, didn't even really sand it, just wanted to see if I could make it work. spin.mp4
  20. Did these a couple days ago but was just able to finish them up. Jas an order from a friend at school. More schnootie hogs! (Hedge hogs).
  21. Giant bullet, barrel, honey dipper, and a mini snowman which my dad, Bundoman, turned.

  23. Beautiful day today, 67° and sunny. Tomorrow, winter weather advisory. Ahh, spring time in PA. Our Patriot Turners- @BillyJack asked our members for input on some turning tools. Several gave their recommendations on what he might consider. I hope he posts the tools he gets so we can all drool over his choices! @Gerald gave us a look at some of the turnings that were done at the last club meeting. Gerald posted several more images of turnings that were done during the demonstration. Gerald said their guest demonstrator was Matt Monaco. If you do Instagram, here's a link to Mr. Monaco's page- https://www.instagram.com/monaco_bowls/. Gerald also posted some images, in response to some thoughts from last week's "Wednesday's...", showing some of the embellishments he has done using various tools.

  24. My apologies to @Smallpatch for giving credit to another member on making the chess piece. I have totally lost my mind. Finally got that computer change-over done (I think), we'll see whether the phone rings tonight. Note to self: clean out your own contact's list. No one need 2894 contacts to try to inform of a new email address. Our Patriot Turners- @Smallpatch was asked to recreate a chess piece. Can’t wait to see the results! Jess has a funny story to go along with the request. Be sure to check out his post- @HandyDanTurned a set of incredible earrings. Dan is our resident "inside-out" turning expert and these beauties accent his talents! Dan received lots of comments and he also describes his process in this post- It is encouraging to see our turner's progress as they post their projects. Some of our member have years of experience while others are relative new to the discipline. @Bob Hodge tells us about how he is developing his creativity gene. I love the way he has chosen to display his turnings. So much better than setting on a shelf. Please check out his post with his feelings about turning Patriot member @BillyJack posted a question for our members about lathe tools. Maybe you can help him decide on what to get- We've had a couple of additional comments added to previous posts. @Bundoman Update his post about his winter projects and his daughter's new lathe- And going back into October on a post concerning end grain turning problems, @Bob Hodge added this information- What’s Coming Up- Pretty well caught up-to-date on what's happening in the near future. For The Newbies- A couple of videos from Mike Peace on drilling on the lathe- and- An older video but a nice useful beginner project from Robo Hippy The first installment on spoon turning from Neal Brand- Expand Your Horizons- Alan Stratton continues his demonstration of the eccentric chuck.

Check the website for more items and coupon code for discounts- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/sweetheart-sale-2022 Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I have a Sorby spiraling and texturing tool. I'm not very good with it. But I've seen some awesome patterns created by turners like Darryl Jones- https://www.instagram.com/dreadknotwoodshop/?hl=en This is one of his pieces from his Etsy shop It amazes me what he, and others, can do. Anyway I've been practicing and recording results so I can reproduce the embellishments on other pieces. I probably should have picked a softer wood than white oak. Sometime back I made a tool described by Mike Peace for small pieces (the one with the brass shank). I use it on bowl bottoms for a spiral pattern. Safe turning and stay well
