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?
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
