  1. Lots happening with our turners this week! Our Patriot Turners- We have a new member at the Patriot who is also a turner! @calabrese55 showed us some of his work when he introduced himself. How about this beautiful segmented turning- Check out his post and give him a Patriot welcome! He also posted another bowl in our "Monday Morning" forum- Check it out here- Our "What's On Your Lathe" was also hot this week. New posts start here- Some of the images from @teesquare, @forty_caliber and @calabrese55 @Steve Krumanaker turned a cane for his daughter and his son cast the knob. Andy his an expert on casting! See the cane and the back story in Steve's post- Our resident ornament expert, @Ron Altier, gave us his impressions on turning bamboo. Ron's conclusions are that's it's probably not the best overall species for turning. In one of our posts, there was a mention of the Lichtenberg burning process. @Gerald was kind enough to do a little research on safety when doing this. The process, when ALL safety precautions are observed, can create beautiful patterns. High voltage is dangerous when we become complacent. My neighbor, the electrical safety training officer in our borough, was electrocuted on the job. Insulation, isolation, incomplete human electrical path and full awareness are a must. This is what Gerald found- What’s Coming Up- Click on the images for links to more information and registration- For The Newbies- Richard Raffan turns a nice little shallow dish in real time. Mike Peace shows how to turn a simple but elegant lidded box. He even makes a special chuck to hold one of the pieces. Holding turnings can be challenge. Home made chucks supplement purchased ones. Sometimes adding modifications to a purchased chuck is the answer as Alan Stratton shows us. Looking for an inexpensive gift? How about salt and pepper SHAKERS. This video from Craft Supplies USA shows us how to make them- Expand Your Horizons- Mike Waldt completes a beautiful elderberry vase- Mike also demonstrates his method of turning finials. This video is from a live feed so it is a little long- New Turning Items- Last week we posted a review from Mike Peace on his new Powermatic 2014 lathe. Mike has a chance to use it and has posted more of his impressions- Ron Brown has release his new lathe mounted disk sander Here's the link to more information- https://www.longworthchuck.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=66&product_id=477 Woodturners Wonders is now a Vicmarc Dealer Check out their complete line- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/vicmarc?_kx=gV5SF2As_3IwtBi5TrpHVQM0F3UvGVbQKzhWGippDlk%3D.VJvU8R Some great prices, at Spiracraft, on Easy Wood Tools products @Jordan Martindale ! https://spiracraft.com/?inf_contact_key=d8ae9197ac7a87c978260b58c8e41427 Everything Else- Boy did this bring back memories! Safe turning
  2. So this month I did purchase the PSI Woodworking Buffing System. I set it up for testing today after I got my antique pepper mill body finished up to test it out. Now having a variable speed controlled buffing attachment for the lathe is quite nice. It works well using it. It did an okay buffing job. Aside from the base polishing that I gave it while it was still on the lathe. Works well for 60 bucks roughly its not bad. If you order it from amazon youll get free delivery not sure from other websites theyll charge for delivery. https://www.amazon.com/PSI-Woodworking-Products-LBUFFSYS-Buffing/dp/B004CVJBYE/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=PSI+buffing+system&qid=1620412070&sr=8-2 https://www.pennstateind.com/store/LBUFFSYS.html Other sites do sell this but yea shipping is where they'll get you for that. So I did buy it through amazon. The set up does work quite well. Before After
  3. So I picked this particular electric saw up earlier this week. Ordered it from Amazon on the 2nd of this month. Just got the bar oil today and was able to give it a go. Its honestly pretty powerful for an "ELECTRIC" chain saw. I would far prefer the cutting power of gas but how ever I didn't feel like messing around with gas saws and the maitnence. Seeing that I was just going to be using this for cutting down blanks to a more workable size. I used it this afternoon and I was quite impressed with it anyway it felt pretty decent was a bit nerve racking because it felt like it just wanted to jump and kick on me how ever it didn't. It cut quite smoothly and I would probably recommend this as it is an under 60 dollar budget buy for a saw. Most chain saws run 150 bucks on up for the good ones at least and thats the gas powered. I tested it out on an old heavy duty electrical wire spool cut quite well through the ply board. Then I moved on to the douglas fir branches I received from the tree cutters on the 1st of this month. I think those are about 5 or 6 inches round. Roughly. The saw cut through them it took a bit but it still cut through them like butter. So yea a worth while buy on a budget I think at least. Here is the link. Not to mention the saw is also STUPID easy to put together. https://www.amazon.com/WEN-4017-Electric-Chainsaw-16/dp/B01ENBNVNE/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=wen+16+inch+chainsaw&qid=1612992171&sr=8-1
  4. Hello We are looking to replace our existing washing machine and are looking for recommendations. Its just the 2 of us, so no heavy usage. Right now, we have scouted Maytag and Whirlpool. Online reviews may be questionable. Thanks in advance. hat
