  1. Sorry about the late post. Unavoidable. Our Patriot Turners- Please welcome back one of our original forum members @Steve Krumanaker. Steve's been away for a while but certainly hasn't lost his touch for beautiful work! Check out what our turners had to say about this fantastic maple bowl- @Gerald gave us a really nice explanation on how he turns wooden spoons. Check out some of his techniques and tools! Gerald's week wasn't all peaches and cream, He tells us about the ups and downs of dropping items on the
  2. Here's hoping all our members along the northern Gulf are safe. I saw where Pensacola had almost 2 feet of rain so far. On another note, please remember to add tags to your posts. I try to remember to check but sometimes my memory fails me. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB has been cranking out projects like crazy this past week! His little elm bowl is beautiful- You can see his progress in this post and check out the comments by our turners- Next, Andrew posted his work on a bloodwood bowl. All did not go as planned as he de
  3. https://www.rockler.com/rockler-carbide-cutter-honing-system?sid=wjwkly&utm_source=constantcontact&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=wwjwkly I am curious to your thoughts. How many times can you hone before the tip is too thin and weak? Does it really sharpen it back to be efficient cutting? What about the screw that holds it in place? So many questions and not enough information. Curious to your thoughts.
  4. Congrats to all of the Patriot Raffle winners. We made our fundraising goal! Hope everyone along the east coast is safe and didn't suffer any damage from the hurricane over the weekend. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald Started a thread that should generate a lot of input. Sanding your lathe projects. You all know that sanding is my second favorite thing in all the world. Please check out what Gerald's setup is and show us your sanding techniques. @Ron Altier has been frustrated by the U/V finish he has been using. Ron applied it to a beautifu
  5. Hope this Wednesday finds everyone healthy and still sane. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier is holding up well under the lockdown. He finished up a sweet little ornament that has a whole bunch of glue-ups! Here's his post- @Gerald had a new comment one of his beautiful bowls in our gallery. Check out his post and read about the tree species- What’s Coming Up- It has been tough coming up with shows and symposiums. Last thing I read was that the Mid-Atlantic Woodturners are unsure if they will be able to have
  6. A 5 minute video on sharpening a card scraper with shop made jigs-
  7. Well the weather here in South Central PA is finally starting to look more like spring. Only 3 days in the last 4 weeks have had above average temperatures. Maybe I can get some plants into the garden! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald turned a gorgeous vase from chestnut oak. Not only does it have a beautiful shape, Gerald also finished it with various stains to create fantastic depths of color. Gerald explains more about his process in his post- Gerald also posted some of his turnings in our gallery-
  8. I was using a rat-tail rasp this morning and noted my comment on it that it had been sharpened. Did you know that you can have sharpened files, rasps, and other such tools?. I have used Boggs Tool https://boggstool.com/. They cost just a few dollars each. Since you have to pay shipping, it pays to send a few at once, or get together with a buddy. If the tool is beyond sharpening, they will discard or return at your request. They told me they'd make my Nicholson patternmaker's rasp sharper than new.
  9. Well, some downtime in the shop. Good time to sharpen things up, maybe clean a few items up.... Since the honing guide went airbourne a while back...will have to rely on free-handing things.....Had a few that were in need.. Some had backs that weren't quite flat,,,yet.. The 2 on the left were the worst of this group.....the 2 Aldi's beside them weren't too bad.. Had one other chisel to do, for this afternoon... Had a lot of "issues" going on. Back needed work, and the handle needed fixed... Edge is NOT cambered on one of these ch
  10. The Tormek sharpener came up in a thread a couple days ago. Coincidentally, I got a flyer from Grizzly yesterday. They have a Tormek knockoff. Does anyone have this Griz model? How does it work for you?
  11. For years I have tried to find a slow grinder that I could afford. Well, another factor raised it's head called space. So, Shopsmith had an advertisement that I found to be plausible, not perfect. https://www.shopsmith.com/ownersite/catalog/sh_grindingwheelguard.htm So sorry you have to click on the link to see the item, but pictures of mine will spare you. Like the normal attachments for Shopsmith, you have to attach the arbor to the quill and then attach the housing to the housing. This is
  12. I have the 3 piece carbon steel turning set that Rockler had on sale last year. They stayed sharp a long time. If one edge dulls, you turn it to a new sharp surface. They are round, square and triangular. Today I went to turn the round one and got an idea. I removed the cutter and placed it on my hand diamond sharpening tool. One side is course and the other fine. The tops and bottoms of these are perfectly flat. I placed the top (cutting edge) down and worked my way thru the course to the fine. It did a good job and I am pleased at the results. The sharpener is from Home Depot and cost u
  13. Simple question. How do I sharpen my wood turning tools? My tools are getting dull and I don't have a clue on how to sharpen them. I sharpen my pocket knives but I don't know how to sharpen these Any help would be great
  14. For those that need a little help. IF you are willing to drive to Piqua, OH. At the corner of South St. & McKinley St. ( stoplight, look to the south east) you will find Chuck's Sharpening Service. Almost any edge that needs sharpened....chainsaws, chisels, knives, plane irons, and handsaws. Very reasonable. Note Rt36 coming in from the west, just as you head downhill, there is a T intersection, this is Mckinley St. head south until you hit South St. 2nd building. Also..he has even less room in his shop, than I do...
  15. Finally got all unpacked, laundry done, dog washed and settling back into the routine. Our Patriot Turners- @FrederickH wanted to know about turning a burl. Specifically, if it should be turned green or be allowed to dry first. Our turners provided some input but see if you can give him additional information- A while back, @Gerald showed us some crosses he was designing for a group at his church. Gerald has redesigned them some and posted his newer version- @John Morris has added some new woodturning links to the Links Directory
  16. Can you believe it, September is almost over! It's been a very slow week. Fighting a cold and not feeling like doing much of anything. Our Patriot Turners- Unless I missed it, I didn't find any new posts from our turners this week. What’s Coming Up- TAW 2020 Woodturning Symposium January 24-25, 2020 Marriott Hotel and Convention Center Franklin, TN Featured demonstrators include Cindy Drozda, Eric Lofstrom, Mark St. Leger, and Derek Weidman. Click on the above image for the link more information and registration.
  17. I was out in the shop sharpening a few of my plane blades with my water stones, and since my shop has changed dramatically (much smaller), I find that the usual location I used to sharpen my blades is gone of course, along with my little bench I used ( I gave it away to make room for other things) and I figured I could just work off my existing workbench. The problem with that is the slurry and sledge tends to splatter and eventually the workbench gets wet and etc etc etc and it's just become a mess to maintain any type of area for a water stone station space. I did a little researc
  18. Below is a picture of my sharpening rig made from an old belt sander. The motor went bad so I rigged it up to a used fan motor. I made a dozen tube pockets so each tool has its own. I put a piece of all thread on the bottom and a lock nut for adjustability. I used some metal conduit I had on hand that fit over the tool handles. I epoxied a wood dowel into the end of the conduit and a piece of 1/4" all thread into the dowel. The all thread is inserted in the holder and the tool can be easily sharpened with very accurate repeatability. The loc
  19. I have been sharpening my chisels & plane blades with a homemade guide, assorted papers spray glued to a piece plate glass for some time now and decided to move up to something less bulky. Found the FASTTRACK on Woodcrafts web site that linked me to https://www.m-powertools.com/. Signed up for the news letter & received 20% off my purchase. First thing I noticed was the weight, 2 pounds. As suggested I screwed it down to a board with a cleat on the end and clamped it in my wood vise. One screw and the rubber feet kept it in place. Road tested on a
  20. Some of us have miter trimmer knives and sharpening the knives accurately can be a chore... I saw this iron sharpening jig elsewhere.. add drawer casters to it and adapt to hold the trimmer blades/irons and I believe you have solved an issue.. to add the caster.. ''wheel well'' for the caster wheels w/o the bracket and drift pin the wheels into place... twin keyhole/T slot the jig's face to make for adjustablity...
  21. Still chilly here but tomorrow I'll spend inside riding herd on 20 tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders in Computer Tech- should be an exciting day! Remember there is still time to send ornaments to @Jim from Easy Wood Tools to help decorate the Easy Wood Tools lobby Christmas tree! We've had a great response to Jim's request but I'm sure they would be grateful for more! Our Patriot Turners- Last week's "Wednesday's.." post got @DAB in the mood for turning. He made a sweet little bowl that will be a prize given to a member of the pistol club to which h
  22. Hi guys seen a few posts about slate stones for final polishing. Dies anyone use them, are they any good and is there a decent one in the UK?
  23. It finally got above freezing the past couple of days but the basement shop is lagging behind in the warm up. @Ksvet06 posed a question about sharpening lathe tools. He asked about grinders and sharpening jigs. Please look over his post and the responses. Let's give Zach all the help we can- @Gerald is working on hollow forms for the Beads of Courage (BOC) project- Check out what he has done for this very special cause- @Smallpatch is recreating a couple of chess pieces for a customer- Although Jesse s
  24. I know there are 2 different type of bench grinders. High speed and low speed. Plus jigs to get the correct angles. Are you able to sharpen on a high speed bench grinder too?
