  1. My compressor is an 80 gal. upright with a petcock water drain at the bottom. After every day's use, it gets drained...religiously. As I age, it gets more difficult to get up and down to do that job. My son took note of that and, designed, built and, installed an electric drain valve. The switch is in a magnetized box that is stuck on the side of the compressor. He installed it yesterday and, it works like a dream. The old back and knees are extremely appreciative.
  2. I started this last weekend and now it's done and finish is dry. Customer wanted the bump out to hold a boom removed. Before pics Phase 1 to get the reinforcing block off the bottom. Remove the screws With a circular saw, cut the block into strips Chisel off the strips Clean up the base with chisel and sandpaper Phase 2 cut off the bump Make a fence from a scrap 2x4 that bridges the rails across the bottom Set the fence so the circular saw will trim off the bump without hitting the spindles Make the cut Finish up the last 1/16-1/8" with a hand plane Round-over top and bottom with router Sand everything Run some test finishes on the bump cutoff. Boiled linseed oil looks good Apply 2 coats of BLO Let dry a couple days Clean up some old scuffs Buff off with 0000 steel wool
  3. I have a Bosch 1604 my Dad gave me that I wish to use for a mini router table. My plan is to leave a roundover bit all set up to use when needed. In making my mock up I realized that the limiter appears to be built into the body of the router. So if I removed, as in grind it flat, this would allow me to extend the router shaft above the table far enough to do above table bit changes. My question, anyone taken one of these apart? Is something important below this I should not be screwing with? Here are a couple of pics with the arrow on the yellow tape pointing out the nub in question. Also model # and other info in case that matters.
  4. Sitting here looking at the thermometer. Not too bad +6° F. Not sure what the wind chill is currently but the Dog and the Mrs. are curled up on the couch under a couple of blankets. The mail was stopped today and local schools are closed tomorrow. Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan made a really nice modification to his lathe. His idea was to modify the spindle stop to make it more accessible- Dan explains why and how he did this in his post- @Gerald is working on a pecan bowl. His post shows us how he is adding color to the wood- Gerald has more information about the colors he used and more pictures in his post- Gerald also mentioned that he had been to the Tennessee Association of Woodturners symposium. @Ron Altier showed us a new seam ripper he made for his wife- Ron describes what he did here- @IrishWoodCarver has turned a couple of beautiful segmented bowls. He tells us where he gets his bowl blanks in his post- @FlGatorwood gave us a heads up on a good price for SlimLine Pen kits from Rockler. Thanks for the information! Our own @Steve Krumanaker posted a 2 part video on YouTube showing us how he made the "Knitting Nancy" snowmen. Very interesting process! The link for part 2 can be found at Steve's YouTube channel- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC48jUuQ_rLe85ulKP8gCsmA What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- For the past couple of Wednesdays we have mentioned inertia sanders. Mike Peace recently reviewed one from Woodturners Wonders. Mike also continued his discussion on scroll chucks and the various jaws that are available- One other tidbit of information from Mike Peace. He has authored an article in the latest edition the the AAW magazine. His article is about wet sanding. It's a great primer for his YouTube videos on the subject. Expand Your Horizons- Not every turning has to have a high gloss, ultra sanded smooth as a baby's butt finish. Carl Jacobson shows us an example- New Turning Items- Although not a new product, faceplate rings, can be very useful for saving time in not having to remove your chuck, mount the faceplate and then reversing the process later. These might just be something to add to your turning arsenal. Everything Else- For your enjoyment, Tim Yoder turns a reed diffuser. Not only lovely but smells good too! I had a little time in at the lathe this week and finished up the hollow vessel I was turning. I really had to scratch my head to come up with a reverse chucking method to finish off the bottom. The diameter of the vessel was too small for any of my previously made jigs. I made some add on jaws for the Easy Chuck "Big Easy Jaws". In the process, I almost pulled a major dumba$$ blunder. I had the wooden pieces mounted on the jaws in preparation for scooping out the area that would clamp around the vessel. Just before I snapped the first on in place, I realized that I hadn't made an access hole to allow the EWT tool to release the the jaws. I could have just unscrewed all of the bolts but having the access hole is a lot easier. Tape to protect the finish. Tail stock to secure the piece. The finished piece. The finial is made from an old ebony piano key and an ebonized piece of maple. Wipe on poly finish on everything. Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) Safe turning
