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 basically be an early Bday present for myself. On the other hand I'm wondering on some opinions of this I will post the link to the tool so you guys can see the specs. I'm not seeing too many comments on it as of yet after reading but I will be heavily searching youtube for reviews of this. It may be a better buy for me in the long run and will probably last much much longer. Thanks in advance. Here is the link. I just want something that will be better worth my money. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Grizzly-Industrial-16-in-x-46-in-Wood-Lathe-with-DRO-G0462/310410447
So I was picking up some moldy sweet gum tree stumps and the lady I’m getting them from says she’s selling for lathe cause she’s never used it and they are moving. The price is insane at 50 dollars. It’s a bench pro 4 speed wood lathe. I’ve been looking it up online and I get nothing. It’s a off/sub brand and just trying to get some info on before I pull the trigger on it. I’m going back tomorrow with my tools to see if it runs and turns nice. Anyone heard of it or has one maybe.
Recently I've been looking at 6 grinders to replace the old household duty Black and Decker that I've had for quite a few years. It still works, I just want a nicer one. So far I've come down to two grinders. A JET 1/2 hp single speed and a Palmgren 1/3 hp, variable speed Any thoughts or experiences with these machines ?
I have a nice little Buck Bros detail gouge and an antique Craftsman 5/8" spindle rougher the rest of my tools are crud. So I'm looking. I like the cherry red hardness of HSS. Dunno about powdered metals. I've read how marvelously wonderful they are hold edge longer yadda yadda but not one single word about whether a careless moment will take the temper out of them on the grinder. Any one know? Read this on what I should have just to get up in the morning. http://www.woodworkersinstitute.com/page.asp?p=927 Dunno why the French scraper is on that list Care to comment on the completeness of this list? Been to Doug Thompson's site. He doesn't have every tool you might want but he has many. I emailed him with a query yesterday around 2pm and so far he hasn't replied. I've looked at Sorby's HSS tools. they have a kit of 6 a kit of 8 17 - 21" total length for their tools Sorby a good tool? Thompson offers dimensions. Dunno know If I need to buy their handles. Believe I recall a guy who said he made his for Thompson tools. Dunno about the geometry of the handles and how to make 'em stay put in wood. Dunno of he epoxied 'em in or what. I can make my own speedy change handles and just have a couple one long and one short for those times when you nee extra length Any one care to comment on making longer handles to nestle under you arm? What about Hurricane tools.Any one use 'em?
