  1. Working today on the drill press and the crank handle broke. The swivel just ended up in my hand. The other end cracked years ago and was temp holding with some epoxy. And of course the bushing is 12mm. So I probably can't find a generic replacement at the repair shop. Also a while ago the connection of the table broke (because the bolt was minimally long) and since it had an odd thread pattern, I just had to tap it out rather than spend $25 with them for a bolt with the right thread pitch and hope it was longer. Another tool from them is the jig saw that lost its setscrew to hold the
  2. So this afternoon I wanted to do some more turning while I wait for my last project to cure. Either way I finally decided to try out my High Speed Steel spindel Gouges. I sharpened them up on my belt sander. Please keep in mind that I DO NOT HAVE A GUIDE, to sharpen the chisels. I do this all by eyeballing it. So I got started on my new project and gave the new spindelgouges out. So far I like them. I origionally bought the hole set for a cost of 76 dollars. For the handles the England beech wood feels great in the hand and is a really comfortable hand hold especially if the chisel dec
  3. I mean honestly guys should a hollowing tool handle be this big. Is it me or is this company over compensating for something???
  4. Any how I purchased carbide tipped chisels. They are the Savannah Carbide Turning Tool Large Size 3 piece set. Which I bought all three of them in one go. Not a tool review by any means since I haven't used them as much. But so far I can say I like them. I started turning a new piece since the other piece I was working on quite literally snapped in half on me any how no big deal. So I put up the black walnut piece that I had started and about a half hour to an hour or so later I had something of a shape turned out maybe it will make some what of a candle holder but it turned into more of
  5. Just read a story about Dremel's new oscillating multi-tool (OMT), called the "Velocity" (Nov 2016 Family Handyman) I don't use my OMT often, but when I need it, it comes in handy. Differences between this and the competition: - 5 degree swing so faster cutting - shoe base to help get square cuts - bigger motor https://www.amazon.com/Dremel-VC60-01-Velocity-Hyper-Oscillating-Remodeling/dp/B01CYDA5PU/ref=sr_1_1/157-8410337-4345846?ie=UTF8&qid=1475877655&sr=8-1&keywords=dremel+velocity

  10. Interesting article. I, too, worked for Sears for a couple of years, but have become disappointed their products and customer service since.

  13. So, if you use a scrollsaw, what brand, make or model do you use? Pros and cons appreciated. I'll start; Delta Model 40-560 Type II with quick clamp, blade clamp. Pros, not terribly expensive, Two speed, very fast blade clamp/unclamp (important for fretwork), up front tension release/adjustment , fast tension release. Cons, some vibration, small table, never use the slow speed, adjusting the blade clamp for different blades cumbersome.
  14. My table saw is a 1947 Delta Uni and is extremely accurate. I had been using a digital Craftsman miter and it did the job well but I wanted to upgrade my miter. I looked at several Incra models as well as the new Kreg KMS7102 and after reading the Kreg reviews, I opted to buy it. The pricing wasn’t hateful at $140 and I was hoping that it would be as accurate and repeatable as promised. The assembly took about 20 minutes and wasn’t rocket science. There are 5 adjustable nylon set screws that you tension the slide in the miter slot to get a nice tight but movable fit. In my mind, the
  15. A brand new year! Now I have to remember to use 2019 when I write a check. Make sure you check the Raffle results to see if you were one of the winners!!! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald posted an update on his new off-center chuck- @DAB solved a problem we have all seen with those "leaky" salt and pepper grinders- He also included a how to in his post- @smitty10101 posted a question concerning how to safely turn a serving platter. His request spawned a great discussion that included some alternative procedures
  16. Doing nothing this morning I thought I would compare Amazon and Wood Carvers Supply with the same 1/8"bits I use all the time since Woodcarvers supply has the original numbers beside their numbers in their catalog.. These pictured on the left side of the page are the ones I use most ll the time... the 1/4" bits are too big for getting into tight places but some are okay for starting the process. I think I ordered these in the middle of 2015 so they have lasted through all my clocks and still look like new once I get them out of the bottle of lacquer thinner and clean them up with a real fine b
  17. Introduction Dear folks, I am going to dive head first into creating forms for tools and machinery reviews as part of our projects list we created the other day. Please see this topic at: Input I am looking for your input as to what you want to see in a review for a Table Saw. I am embarking on the table saw arena for our first review form because it is the most popular purchase we make for our shops, and I feel it will help those who are ready to jump in and buy that first, or replacement table saw. I need your help. Fields For now, what I would like is s
  18. I needed a quick workbench so I could set up for gun maintenance and reloading away from the dust of the woodshop. The wood bench with four drawers and a vice looked like it would do the job and it was $119.00 with a coupon. The first one I picked up the top was totally destroyed beyond repair. After a trip to HF for a replacement I put it together easily by not reading the instructions. About a half hour and some extra screws and glue it is surprisingly very sturdy and will fit my needs. All that is left is assemble the drawers and mount my reloading equipment. Someday I will build a better o
  19. Came in a no nonsense plain brown box. Packed well. Initial impressions, very solidly built, a tad heavy, sealed on/off buttons, 6' cord, box style DC. Nice, comfortable top grip. Not too soft, not too hard, just right. Variable speed. Velcro pad. Came with 6 sanding discs. Minimal vibration on high. Fairly aggressive, great DC. Hardly any residual dust after 5 minutes of use with 80 grit. Easily controlled on crotch grained mesquite. It replaces a not quite dead PC 5". I think I'll like this one better.
  20. In my opinion some the open stand 6 inch jointers such as the Delta JT360, Jet JJ-6OS, General International 80-075L, Steelex ST1001, CraftexCT086, King CanadaKC-150, and probably a couple other brands that I may have missed, which all basically have the same type of open stand and dust collection setup where the dust port is directed very close to the floor of the dust chute, more then likely causing some air flow resistance and lowering CFM before it reaches the cutter head area. I feel that the port should be pointed in the direction of the chute's flow to be efficient. I had a JET JJ-6OS,
  21. If you have WIFI dead zones in your house this may be a solution. The WIFI router supplied by our internet provider isn't the most robust so, I've never been able to get a WIFI signal in the shop. Even though, the shop is only about 100' from the router. Several different types and brands of extenders were tried and returned. Thank you Amazon. I finally happened on to this TP-LINK AV500 range extender that uses your house wiring as a transmission medium, thereby eliminating problems caused by walls, metal studs, distance, etc. There are two components, an "adapter" that is con

  24. Introduction @Jim from Easy Wood Tools contacted us a time ago and asked us if we knew of a turner here on The Patriot Woodworker, who is experienced, and open minded to new tooling and designs, in order to fill a product testing position. Of course we could think no further than our own Lew Kauffman, our Wood Turners Forum host. After some back and forth and information gathering between interested parties, Lew was hired on an as needed, on call basis to test Easy Wood Tools products.

  25. In today's Email.....Paul Sellers was doing a review of a new drill from Aldi's.....18v Lithium ion. Seemed very pleased with it. Cost him about 24 pounds ( English money). Seems to think it will do the same as his DeWalt 18v. Seem to be about the same size. I guess I will have to keep a eye out around this side of the "pond" and see what they look like. Just a heads up...
