  1. Walked down to the garden this morning and I see the garlic is starting to poke through the leaf mulch. I guess spring can't be too far away. Don't forget to turn your clocks forward this Saturday night or you will be late to Sunday School! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald took some time to rearrange his turning area. No easy feat and he will probably looking for where he put stuff for some time to come! Our members all sympathized with the amount of work required to do this. You can see their comments in Gerald's post- @Masonsailor Took
  2. Please don't forget that we are in the midst of our annual fundraiser/raffle. There are some awesome prizes to be had! Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier created some entirely different type of ornaments than he usually does. Even though they weren't done on the lathe, I think they deserve a spot here in our forum. Ron describes the process in his post- @AndrewB is putting his Wen benchtop lathe through its paces! He is turning another candle holder from a glued up blank Check his posts for our
  3. Just in case you are looking for a deal. Got an email today from Lee Valley with a sale on Norton Pro Sand 3X pack of 80 in 80/120/180/220 for $34.50 and free shipping over $30. yes I know not a sponsor but what a deal. I always buy the 3X when I can find as it got scarce a few years ago and now seems is most everywhere again.
  4. It was finally time to add the sand paper to the drum. Having decided on a Velcro (hook and loop) system, it was off to Super Grit http://www.supergrit.com/ . Their store is only a half an hour drive from here. The hook portion required 5 feet of material. This PSA stuff is 4” wide and is $2/foot. Also bought 3 different grits of the 3” wide loop paper. Their minimum purchase is 3 yards but at between $1.50 to $2.00 a yard it is reasonable. It took about 73” to wrap the drum but I think I can get it down to 72” and be able to get 2 applications from 4 yards. The first step was to clean th
  5. on the sanding blocks... Sherwin Williams guy ask me one day some time ago to take this flexible sand paper and give it a try and let them know what I think of it.. It was quick some time before I went to give him my thoughts. So, he said lets hear it...First off I said I haven't been able to wear out that small two sheets you gave me and second though is it works better on uneven surfaces better than anything I have ever used.....period...It is pricey but I don't have to buy it very often. I read where guy had bought a machine to cut sheets of sand paper for his sanding block...I never
  6. I need some help to find out who made this sandpaper. I think it is cloth backed and very thick. It is blue and has numbers 402 2 on the back.( there is a space between the 2s) I will try and enclose a pic. Preston
  7. Well, I had three chisels in need of a bit of work. A Buck Brothers 3/8" Mortise chisel, a Witherby 1/2" paring chisel, and a "Work Zone 8mm Aldi's chisel. While I was down in the shop, a little prep work was done. 8mm chisel was badly chipped on the end. Ground a new edge. Beltsander to re-do the other two edges. Who ever had done these two before me...did not have a clue. Mortise chisel was @ 45 degrees? The Witherby was a very short 35 degree bevel? Brought the chisels and the "supplies" up to the work zone on the dining room table.. 600 grit stone, 1K g
  8. Seems a #3 sized Dunlap was in bad need of a resharpening. Right down to regrinding a new edge. What is so special about this little plane? Well, it has a metric width iron from West Germany. The bed for it is called a York Pitch because the angle is about 50-55 degrees, instead of the normal 45 degrees. Grinder and a 1" wide beltsander to refine the bevel, somewhere around 25 degrees or so. Then a pair of oil stones, one a "Medium India 600 grit" and one was about 1K grit Doing these free-handed nowadays, too. Then some 1K and 2.5K grit sandpaper. Clean and BLO the wood par
  9. I know this is more than likely a silly question. however I am going to ask it anyways, because I am like that lol. When you sand a project how do you know when you are done. do you go from the coarsest grit to the lowest all the time or is it dependent on the wood and its softness? how do you know when it is time to go to a lower grit sandpaper? The reason I am asking is because every time I feel like I have sanded enough and I coat it there always seems to me that I should have sanded it more. Well thanks for those who take the time to answer my question.
