  1. How about a broken sledge hammer handle turned into chisel handles. Also a pretty good example of how not to use a lathe but I am learning.https://youtu.be/5dYnNZQn8s8
  2. My old Delta iron bed (1440) is on its' last leg. Turning a bowl is painstakingly slow. The motor is strong but alas the reeves drive will not keep tension on the belt even though I've replaced the springs and belt- drive pulleys are no longer available. I thought about getting a Oneway 2000 series but it would be difficult to plugin at the homeless shelter after my divorce. Pretty much the same applies to a Powermatic. So, on my budget, I'm looking at a Jet 719500. It's a little more powerful than the old Delta and has a few other minor differences that I can work around but it looks like it might work for me. And, in November it goes on sale at a 15% discount with no shipping as there is a Jet dealer about a mile away. I guess I'm asking is there something about this lathe that should make me wary. At my age, I know it will be the last one I buy so I won't want any surprises down the road. Thanks for any input/suggestions and/or character assassinations
  3. I'm looking to buy a lathe headstock. Something beefy around 12" swing. Building another tool project. I need to be able to change the chuck to a faceplate. I would love to find something like this...
  4. Long sleeves, long hair, jewelry, all will get you sooner or later.
  5. Perusing Craigslist and found this wonderful example of a Shopsmith 10ER here in So Cal. And it's sister sitting beside it, both for $350.00. The ER in front was restored, if only I was ready to go down that road, I'd a snapped it up in a heart beat! Love the way they look.

    Lathe wheels

    Think I posted about this Sorby lathe that our club was gifted before when I worked on it. Well I put wheels on so it could be moved and then lowered but my first design did not work as it should. So this is the culmination of efforts and suggestions by three of us and it works well. The headstock on this lathe is very heavy not only due to that large motor but also a very heavy casting. Sorby only made this lathe 2-3 years. The tubes are solid chrome steel. The original plan was to use a levered bar to lift one end at a time and then insert rods to keep wheels down. Well lots of bending bars and hooks redesign called for. So new design angle with nut and threaded rod with handle. Well handle was not long enough and caused flex in the rod. So another member had the idea to cut handle off and use ratchet and it works perfect. It now rolls great.

  8. Turn Fast, Sand Slow
  9. @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
  10. When somebody gives me a hunk of wood, I give them the first piece created from it. A little Hoosier Fusion adventure here, filling in a cherry knothole with crushed gems from my wife's offering of imperfect gems and minerals - green aventurine and white pearls. I tried epoxy with unsatisfactory results. Super glue did the trick. Watco on the inside for a matte finish. Waterlox on the outside. Just not there yet with getting the inside of narrow-opening vessels as smooth as the outside. Any wisdom?
  11. I saw a lathe tool that could be used on a lathe up to____ inches of swing. I looked it up and that was confusing too: Many lathes are specified with multiple dimensions for swing, so you might see: Swing over bed: 10" Swing over carriage 8" Swing over compound 6" What does it mean to you?
  12. Moving along with the demo prep. Have two sticks completed and my demo routine pretty will figured out. I have to make one more stick to leave in component form and then probably a few components in different stages of completion in case of a severe catch or other catastrophe. I'd forgotten what a nice project this stick is. These two will eventually be gifted to a soon to be retired neighbor and his wife. Bruce is a good friend, and more importantly, a licensed electrician . He and I have helped each other back and forth for 30 years or more. It's always a good thing for him to owe me a favor! once a few more coats of oil are applied, the sticks get a 3/4" rubber cane tip on the bottom.
  13. Most everyone who visits this forum will know I have a youtube channel. For those who don't do videos I can tell you, one of the real rewards for a youtube author is when a person takes the time to comment and let the author know they liked the video. I've had some very positive comments and some, not so much. Well, I checked my channel this morning and saw this comment, from one Jasper Krumanaker. For the record, this is a gloat, this is a brag, and this is from a misty eyed proud PaPa. "I'm his grand child his work is amazing and so is him" Steve
  14. There is a first time for everything they say. Today, for me, that "first time thing" was turning a cowboy hat. About six hours from mounting the blank to putting it in the bending jig. I could never have turned this without the guidance, the encouragement, the tutelage, and did I mention the encouragement? Of my good friend and mentor, Bob Lipp, who is Vice President of our local wood turning club. We started with a bradford pear blank, about 20" diameter and 8" thick or so. The first thing he told me to do was to true it up for a tenon and then he showed me how to shape the outside. I did all the cuts but it was his express instructions that allowed me to do them. After the shaping is all done on the outside it's time to form the brim. The red dots are led lights shining through from the other side. The brim is about as thick as a credit card. After the brim is completed the hollowing is done for the rest of the hat. It also ends up being about the thickness of a credit card, although I think mine may be a little thicker. After the turning is done the hat is put in a bending jig. I'm excited to see how this bends and looking forward to trying on my own.
  15. So people keep asking for pictures so here’s a picture of my first bowl. Also a picture of a gag gift for the wife. Still need to hollow the bottom out and then cast some sky blue epoxy in the void. I’m calling it “glass bottom bowl.”
  16. Several years ago, WOOD magazine did a project, a "wood turned walking stick". It didn't happen very often but this particular project just spoke to me and I had to make it. That's kind of funny because at the time, if I'm being honest, I couldn't really call myself a wood turner. My lathe was a shopsmith and I turned a spindle if I just had to. Anyway, I ended up making several of those walking sticks for gifts or personal use. I have decided to revisit the project and hit the highlights of it for the May demo for our club. It's a very straight forward thing to make except for the handle. I have a handle on the lathe, have turned it and done some shaping. Still a little more to do but it's coming along. Two things are different this time around. In the article, a compass is let into the handle with a cavity under it for matches, a map, or whatever. Those compasses are no longer available and I haven't been able to find a substitute so I'll just round the top. The other thing that's different is the EWT negative rake insert I now have in my arsenal. They are perfect for shaping the finger slots. Here's a WIP picture. Still some tweaking to do on this one but I'm happy with it to this point. The neat thing about this walking stick is, it's made in four pieces so a person doesn't need a real long bed to do it. One of the best WOOD projects ever IMO. Steve
  17. Have a current order for honey dippers, this is the first batch of 20 finished. Some of the these have some really nice grain in the lids. Steve
  18. Our club meets this Sunday, I got demo duty. In the interest of spring, doing an easy spindle project. Garden dibbles. They're easy to do but also a good skill builder. Plan to spend a bit of time on rolling a bead and how important is getting the "V" notch right. Steve
  19. I have an opportunity to buy a good used Teknatool Nova 1624 II for about $600. New, I believe, is about $1200 yet I see some reviews that said they were about $850 a couple of years ago. This is belt driven, 8 speeds. The DVR is all electronic, but it costs about $600 to $1000 more, depending on where you are starting. Currently, I am overdriving my midi lathe to make 12 inch bowls from some heavy woods. I would like to get into bowl making up to 18 inches and the outboard feature of this Nova would accommodate that. The Nova is described as an entry level lathe. I'm sure I would appreciate the electronic, digital speed motor, but I must weigh the cost of it. 1. What is missing from that to a more advanced lathe besides the electronic, direct drive motor? 2. The outrigger, outboard feature would allow for larger bowls, but no tailstock. Is that really feasible? Safe? Thanks for the wisdom.
  20. A nice little video from Mike Peace talking about how to make quick measurements a little easier.
  21. 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.

    Off Center

    This is the first try with the off center chuck. This is green bradford pear and for this did not do well, so will sand. And after some sanding is better but blurred some lines. It did not show a a three axis turning well until I centered and turned the bottom and top. More on this later.
  23. I posted earlier I was going to make a French knitter, or knitting nancy for the Feb. demo for our club. I've often said, no one learns more during a demo than the person doing the demo. I've also often said, I will make every mistake possible before I figure something out. This project is a good example of both of those statements. Since it's still winter and kind of the holidays I thought about making one in a kind of snow man shape. Grabbed a piece of spalted birch and turned this one. I was basically happy with it but it occurred to me I could make a snowman(or snowlady) shape and hide the pins and pic under the hat. Tried to do a couple with the spalted birch but it was too punky to get a good fit between the hat and the tenon. I also felt it was important to get a good grain match so the whole thing would look like just one piece. Since the spalted wood was too punky I grabbed a piece of hard maple. Parted off a piece for the lid and drilled to accept a tenon. Naturally I forgot it would have to be drilled deeper to make room for the pins and pic. Of course, I noticed this about 2 seconds after parting it off so I couldn't fix it. Since it's important to me to match the grain and hide the joint I grabbed a whole new piece of wood to start over. Okay, so now I've made a new snowman and have the hat drilled deep enough to work. Grain matches nicely and it's a nice friction fit. Plenty of clearance for the pins and the pic. Made the pic, fits nicely under the hat and it's nice snug fit in the center hole of the snowman. Too snug actually, can't really grasp the pic to remove it easily. Decide I'm going to put a little step on the next one so it won't go in so far and will be easier to remove. Great idea, except I left the top to big around to fit between the pins. Back to the lathe, last one works but is too sloppy and will rattle when it's under the lid. Enough for today, back to the lathe in morning and incorporate all the little nuances to maybe make one that will be just right. All of these little details that I'm figuring out will become part of the demo. It's a simple little turning but I've learned a lot already. Steve
