    Starting To Build A Tea Pot.

    Two woods grown here by my wife, Chinese privet, variegated and I thought I was saving some walnut but it turned out to be oak I had stacked there. The easiest way to get the log ready for the lathe is first put the log in the Legacy Mill to knock off the bark and kinda get it round then go to the lathe... I had to stop and glue up some cracks was the reason I am doing two at once, let the glue dry on one while I play with the other.... and again, this is what I am shooting for. Don't matter if it will end up close or not, just doing one with some carving and maybe a name?

    Still Tinkering With Color

    I wanted to try using latex paint to fade from one tint to another. I used the multi color ply and some maple. I kept tinkering until I liked the effect and sprayed it with poly. The one thing that is missing is the wood look, but I guess if I turned it, it still counts.

    Scrap Wood Again

    I've been the scrap pile again, experimenting with wood and acrylic glitter. The ball is thin pieces of Yellow Hart and Bubinga (I think). The shaft is plain ole pine. I painted the pine and I layered the glitter in thick layers in the crease and allowed to dry overnight, then repeated with the glitter. It came out OK and I think I may have an effect I'll use in the future

    Pecan W/ Inlay

    Have had the first turn of this bowl on the shelf for 3-4 years and finally getting it done. Got the second turn done on outside and decided to cut a grove and use inlace. Only had a little turcoise so ordered jade. Finished sanding today and went to 3000 with Abralon. This is done nice stuff , it makes the pecan shine.

    Haven't Posted In A While.

    Been working through a run of mason jar honey dippers. Local bee farm wants fifty of them by July. This batch makes forty finished and ready. Have about 20 more to glue up and finish. That will give me a few extra. Steve
  6. I'm going to have to think of myself as a turner in training, coz' I just bought a PM 3520B Tricked out with some options. Delivery in a few days. Now I gotta think about tooling. My current crop of lathe tools is abysmal. I have two nice gouges, but the rest of my kit is all of a piece from a box of tools that I got free and were not worth much more than I paid. No name junk sold to people who dunno what they are doing.
  7. Sorry guys, not too much this week. Between subbing, doctor appointments, vet appointments and puppy training- shop time has been very limited. @PostalTom showed us a sweet little bowl he made for his woodturning club exchange challenge- Check out how Tom made sure the paper clips don't get away! @Gene Howe Sent me this link. It has some nice turning accessories, from Ron Brown, including several types of chucks. Check out Mr. Brown's website at- http://admailemail.com/view/47157c1/4881dc/ @Gerald asked a question about the finish we like to use on bottle stoppers. My personal favorite is oil based poly. It seems to stand up to handling and moisture. Why not checkout Geralds post and give him your favorite- Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) is presenting free tool demonstrations this coming weekend. If you are near Buffalo Grove, IL or Orland Park, IL, why not stop in and try out these fantastic tools! Mike Peace put up a short video with some turning tips. A couple of great ideas- Holding lathe work can often be challenging. Turner devise all sorts of jigs/chucks to be able to turn their projects. Captain Eddy put up a video a little while back demonstrating some ideas for holding work- Safe turning

    Provential WCO 280

    Bought some of these kits from a company named Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. They sat in a drawer for almost 15 years. When I pulled them out, I found that this company seems to be out of business. You suggested I call Berea Hardwood, and they did send some bushings and some Parker refills for the old kits. I have run into a problem: How do I install the refill? It doesn't seem to fit into the part I believe to be the correct one. I pulled another kit I have in stock, and the refill is the same as the one in the kit. It seems that it might have to be pressed into the pen part, but I am afraid that is going to ruin the point. Anybody turned one of these pens; if so, do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Turning Tool Deflector

    I like the carbon steel tools, but they didn't have a dust/chip deflector. Most of it hit me and my mask/face shield. My solution was to use goop and attach a super magnet on the tool. Then I got a squeeze type paper clip, (larger example shown) removed the outer finger clamps and goop a small piece of steel to it. Then goop in a piece of plexiglass. It is on an angle and perfect for deflecting. If there is a drawback it is that the magnet attracts other things too, but not much of a problem. I have magnets on all my carbon steel turning tools. The shield quickly goes from tool to tool.

    Skew Angle

    I watched the video on proper use of the skew chisel (lew posted) and noticed how he had his sharpened with a slight curve, rather than a straight edge. I haven't see the curve before and it looks like a better way. I don't use the skew much, when I first started I ruined things, didn't know how to properly use it. Is your skew edge curved?
  11. You guys helped me find pen parts from Berea Hardwoods, Now, if instructs says to press parts into wooden pen parts, do you use super glue on them?

    Still With The Cryptex Boxes

    Last one of these for a while, or maybe not. They're fun to do. Maple with ash end caps. Five letter code. The pattern on the border rings was drawn in Delta Cad and Inkscape, I call it "star chain". The pointer is a generic Celtic pattern I cabbaged off the web. It's crazy how some projects get almost addictive. I have other things I need to be doing but these are just so much fun! Steve
  13. some gozillion years ago I was given a twin state Sgt Welsh rotary vein vacuum pump that fell of a truck. No really it fell off the truck & got damaged ( just the belt shroud) but there was an insurance claim and this one was unclaimed so the shipper gave it to me. And a decade or so later I'm finally trying to put it to use. I got a small air tank and welded bungs to it so I can run 1" piping to it. It is the vacuum reservoir in case of power failure. Then mounted it and the pump together around a corner on the other side of a wall and ran 1" copper to the lathe with a parker needle valve and a vacuum gauge and LOOKY MA I can hold a great vacuum and even lower the hold to what ever HG I want with the needle valve . AND When I shut it off it holds the vacuum for a good long time. The reason for the large piping is over a long run ya gotta have a big pipe a small one just doesn't work well

    My Mini Tailstock Solution

    I got to work on my mini tailstock slippage. I went to our local farm store where they have larger washers than hardware stores. As you can see from the pictures of the pictures, small is original one piece, large is my assembly of 4 washers (42 cents) held together with JB weld. I had to do a small amount of filing to get a nice fit. I did some testing and it holds good. The clamping surface has probably doubled. The question is.........will JB weld hold. I was going to solder them and may have to if JB fails

    I've Been In The Scraps Again

    I hate to toss scraps of exotic wood and usually find some use for it. I just kept goofing with the pieces and glueing. I ended out with that block that I turned to what you see

    Tailstock Problem

    I'm having slippage problems with my tailstock on my 12 year old Jet mini. It will slip on the bed and move away from the piece I'm turning. I've adjusted the off center lock a couple of times, I've removed it and roughed up the surfaces that lock it in place. The only way I can get it to stay is to use some leverage with a small box end wrench. Even then it will loosen. Any suggestions?

    Need Help With Pen Kits

    About 15 yrs ago, I bought about 100 pen kits, all different kinds, from Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. I finally got around to wanting to make some pens, but I do not have instructions for any of them. Has anybody heard from this company lately? I can't find them on the internet, and Wood Craft Supplies has not wanted to help me with the problem. The particular kit I am trying to work with is WCO 280 Provential Twist Pen. Anybody got any instructions or know where I can obtain them? There is a long list of kits on Woodcraft.com, but they do not show pics unless you click on each one, and it looks like there must be 100 different kits! Thanks!

    sphere within a sphere

    any one know of a good instructional on this? Some would call it Chinese Balls . I know it's possible there are even special tools for it that look weird but the only way I could pull it off is the band saw box trick where a thin kerf becomes a reassembly glueline.

    Experimenting With Epoxy

    I got some ideas about using 5 minute epoxy and glitter. I made some mistakes, but learned a lot in the process. You can see the upper ring. It looked really good until I tried something else to smooth it. I think I am going to try again, I have a couple more things I want to try

    Opinions please

    I've had it in my head for some time I'd like to have a small metal lathe but I would also like to have a small mill as well. I've been watching CL for a few months and haven't seen anything that interests me. So, I've been looking at the Grizzly combo machines but I'm not the biggest Grizzly fan. What does everyone think of these machines? Specifically the g9729, it seems as though that would more than satisfy the needs(wants) of a not so serious hobbyist. Combo lathe/mill

    Lathe in Reverse?

    I was wandering around our local tool store, and they had several lathes that had a reversing switch. Why would you want to run your lathe so that it's rotation is reversed to normal? My best guess is that if the grain direction is such that it generates a lot of catches and rough surfaces, you might want to move around to the other side of the lathe, and want a rotation that works for that. Is that right, or am I missing something.

    chopping block bowl

    This is truly a magnificent bowl, there is so much waste of wood. I saw a video where a guy used a curved cutter to remove and save the center wood to make smaller bowls.
