  1. Well, last Wednesday in September. Hasn't been a great week, maybe a new month will chase away Mr. Murphy. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald had some misfortune while turning a hollow form- He was looking for some suggestions on how to have the repair enhance the turning. Check out his post and see if you can offer any ideas- @bradleyheathhays is looking for suggestions on which type of bowl scraper to buy. Several of our turners added their thoughts; what are yours @Masonsailor turned some items for his reloading area. He shows us more of what he did in this post- A week or so ago @Gerald posted about a jam chuck. We are still getting input and inquiries about the chuck. If you made that chuck, please add your input to the conversation- I made a post asking for recommendations on air filtration masks. I really appreciate the input. I haven't decided on the route I want to take. I subscribe to the Alton Brown philosophy that every item should be a multitasker but they should also do those things well. If you have any ideas to add to the already suggested items, I would appreciate it- What’s Coming Up- Click on the images for links to registration and more information- For The Newbies- Mike Waldt works on that ash bowls. This is a live demonstration with questions and lots of good tips- Expand Your Horizons- If you are considering learning to cut threads, Mike Peace demonstrates a few tricks for setting up a thread cutting jig- New Turning Items- The Woodturning Tool Store has the NEW Elio-DR Safe Drive- See more at- https://woodturningtoolstore.com/product/elio-dr-safe-drive-2/?receiptful=614cfd7b710e56003dbee782&utm_source=CM Commerce&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter-121&utm_term=newsletter&utm_content=other&receiptfultype=newsletter Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- Been fighting computer problems for the past several days so shop time has been non-existent. Before everything went south, I did manage to get the last batch of rolling pins shaped but not sanded- probably a good thing as I am still hawking up lugies and haven't gotten better dust protection. After the rolling pins are pretty much round and dimensioned, the tapering jig is used to shape them. I used to do this free hand but getting consistent results proved difficult. The base of the jig holds the taper guide at the bottom/back. The cutting is done with a handheld, sliding fixture that houses the HHS cutter and an adjustable follower (bolt). The cutter is removable for sharpening. I'm using a 5/16" square tool stock now. It seems to make a better cut that the 1/4" square cutter I use originally. Cutter and follower bolt- Cutter closeup- After the overall shaping is finished, The tapering jig is removed. Each end of the pin gets the shoulders rounded. I use either a small spindle gouge or the Easy Wood Tools rougher with an R2 cutter. The pins are now ready for sanding. Safe turning and stay well

    Lathe

    Hello. I’m new to this forum. I’m looking to get into turning. I have a little experience at it. Currently I own a wood floor business. We install hardwood, sand and finish. I’ve hurt my back and think it’s here to stay but can’t see myself leaving the wood business. I enjoy making tables but want to add another level of custom to it by turning bases and the occasional legs. I also would like to dabble in burls. My problem is I don’t have a lathe and would like to buy one big enough to do anything I want to do. It can be used but in good working order. Any recommendations to me? Thanks.
  3. Anyone have a recommendation where to buy good bandsaw blades. My old taiwanese bandsaw uses 92.5" blades but I can make 93" work. Broke 2 1/4" blades in an hour!
  4. The sun has finally returned and the humidity is a little lower. More like fall. Before we get started on this week's stuff, I'd like to remind you of the request from @Jim from Easy Wood Tools. The generous folks at Easy Wood Tools are decorating their lobby for Christmas and would like to use turned ornaments for the tree. The ornaments don't have to be finished. Plain wooden ones will be painted by volunteers at Easy Wood Tools. The ornaments can be simple turnings from non-descript wood. However, if you wish to make some fancy ones- think of the type made by @Ron Altier, @Gerald and @Steve Krumanaker- those would be displayed just as you made them-- No Paint!! If you need ideas, I have a list of websites, tutorials and ideas. Just let me know!!! These are a couple I've started. Got ideas from the list I mentioned above. These are maple and intended to be painted- Our Patriot Turners- One of our newer members, @JohnM posted a question about purchasing a lathe. Somehow I missed his post until today. I know he would appreciate hearing from those of you who might have experience with the particular lathes he is considering. Please head over to his question and see if you can offer any advice- @Gerald is getting a head start on his Christmas ornaments! He has been discussing design considerations with his Mrs. See what our other turners had to say about these beauties- @Steve Krumanaker posted some images of really cool turnings that used magnets to create awesome illusions- Check out Steve's post for more images/designs and comments about his efforts- Member @Bob Hodge Asked our turners for hints on how to address tearout. Bob turned a beautiful apple wood bowl but he wasn't pleased with some of the surface areas. Several of our turners offered ideas- @Ron Altier posted a picture of a specialized rolling pin/cutter. The "noodle cutter" looks deceptively easy to make. But, having tried this in the past, I can assure you there are pitfalls. The cutters must have sharp points and all be exactly the same height and no ragged edges. I think the best tool for this might be the new Easy Wood Tools Micro Detailer. From The Internet- Always a favorite, Tim Yoder posted a nice video of making a bottle opener using the new item from Ruth Niles. Many of us use Ruth's bottle stopper hardware because we know it's the best on the market. If you haven't seen her products, here is a link to her site- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/ . Tim uses his Easy Wood Tools to turn the wooden portion of the opener. He discusses his method of finishing. For the second time this week, I've noticed folks using Yorkshire Grit (thanks Jim Luley for the first time). It looks like the only US distributor for this fantastic finish is http://www.thewalnutlog.com/. Gonna order some tomorrow! It's kind of a morbid subject but Mike Peace has a two part video on turning a cremation urn. The second part is linked from his video. I've made pet urns but they were flat work to match the design of other builds. Everything Else- Safe turning
  5. Anybody use them? What's your experience? Good, bad, ugly?
