  1. Lots happening with our turners this week... Our Patriot Turners- @FrederickH posted a project in the woodworking section. He is making a box for his lathe chuck/jaws. From all the comments and ideas, I thought maybe our turners would like to see what he made and all the other ideas form his post- You can see the build and how he finished the inside to hold his chuck- @Smallpatch showed us his in progress steady rest. Looks like it is going to be a nice one too- Jess' post contains images of his build, lots of commen
  2. Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN added an addition to his new Record Lathe This outrigger adds a lot of versatility to the lathe as Rusty explains in his post- New member @Chris Brown, is looking for a new lathe and asked our advice. Our members aren't shy about providing help when asked! Check out Chris' post and chime in with your thoughts! We have been talking about various types of steady rests lately. @Ron Altier showed us his shop made version. Ron's is especially useful having two se
  3. Before we get into our own turners, please watch this inspiring video from Tim Yoder- Our Patriot Turners- Lots going on this week! @Masonsailor posted a question about chucks. Paul is considering "beefier" chuck and asked our turners about a Nova G3. Maybe you have some experience with this chuck and can provide some input to help him out- @HandyDan is involved with turning pens for our troops. He showed us his latest batch- This is fantastic program for giving a little something back to the guys and gals away from ho
  4. I ordered a Robert Sorby 1/2” bowl gouge with the fingernail grind. The price was too good to pass up.
  5. Think I posted about this Sorby lathe that our club was gifted before when I worked on it. Well I put wheels on so it could be moved and then lowered but my first design did not work as it should. So this is the culmination of efforts and suggestions by three of us and it works well. The headstock on this lathe is very heavy not only due to that large motor but also a very heavy casting. Sorby only made this lathe 2-3 years. The tubes are solid chrome steel. The original plan was to use a levered bar to lift one end at a time and then insert rods to keep wheels down.
  6. I have been looking online trying to find some chisels that I don't have to pay too much for. That is no easy task. Sorby has a set with one handle and you install the cutters in the handle as needed. I am sure most of you have seen them. The price isn't to bad for these, I think about $150 for three cutters and a handle. I think I can resharpen them to some degree. On the other hand, there are the other chisels but I would have to sharpen them. If I bought those chisels I would buy a Wolverine jig to sharpen them. There are several ways you can buy the Wolverine jig and I don't know what I ne
  7. There was a Robert Sorby multi tip hollowing tool in that batch of tools I bought at auction. It was missing the straight bit and the circular hold down for it. Went to work on the lathe and made the hold down. Took a 3/16" hole for the screw so I use the same size hole for the cutter and made the cutter from a 3/16" drill bit. Flattened one side of the bit on the belt sander, cut it to length and sharpened it. Turned out well and saved myself a few bucks.
