    Well Now

    I’m fairly pleased with this turn out. I did not use the dovetail jaws on this one just the face plate. I guess you could say it’s okay for a beginner candle stick holder we shall see. I’ve still got to put a coat of wax on it I just finished with the boiled linseed oil how ever I think the wax will just add more too it. I used nothing but carbide tipped tools. I was going for the more rugged beat up kind of look and got it. So once I get this thing cut off from the base I guess I could call it a successful turn.

    First Turn

    I've had this lathe for several years now,..just hadn't jumped in yet. Today was the day. Had some blue spruce that I recently cut down,..tree was dead..it seemed dry enough but after the bark was knocked off it acted like it wanted to fray a bit,...so I got into my curly maple scraps. I knew it was dry. Keep in mind I've never turned wood and my choice of species may have not been ideal,......but live and learn. All my tools are hong kong specials straight out of the box,....I'll upgrade when I figure out what I use the most. Before my next session they will get a good sharpening My projects will be making some stands for my powder horns to sit on.......and things of that nature...but for fun I plan on turning some snowmen and customizing them from there....and a few other Christmas things...but has for now here is a very small future tiger maple snowman
  3. I've been rolling along pretty good with spindles for Shaker stools, feeling pretty good about myself, feeling a little cocky actually. Then the powers that be will always smack ya down, just to remind you. I got a little aggressive and she dug in. got lucky with this one, it just kind of fell to the floor without fanfare or violence.
  4. Well I said I would post some spindles I had turned so here’s a couple of handles and a mallet. I don’t expect the mallet to last. Well not the head anyway. I plan on replacing it with a brass one once I get enough brass to melt.
  5. It's been a few months since I won the raffle, winning the $500.00 gift certificate from Laguna Tools. I've finally gotten it set up in my shop, so thought it was time to post a photo.
  6. I have a Delta 46-460 Midi Lathe and love it. The sole item I would change on it is the spindle stop. It is a spring pin that has to be pulled out and twisted to the right spot to keep it out or to let it in to a hole in the pulley to lock it. It is also used as for indexing so I didn't want to alter it. It is nestled between the body and the hand wheel making it less than easy to use. The spindle has 5/16" holes for a Tommy bar on the spindle and I decided to use those in my plan. There is also a couple of unused threaded holes in the head stock I put into the plan so as not to drill anything new. I used a 1/2" square aluminum bar but had to thin it down some. The red knob is a wire nut which was a perfect fit and the right color. I drilled the pivot hole and left just enough length below it so it just touches the ways for some extra support. Screwed it onto the lathe and marked, drilled and threaded a hole for a 5/16" bolt with the head cut off for the hold pin. Mounted it back on the lathe and tested it out. Worked well but worked better after I added some spring washers to give it some resistance to keep it in place while the lathe is running. Part way up from the pivot screw was another threaded hole I wanted to use as a stop but it held the lever a bit too close so I cut the bolt some for extra room shown in this next photo. It works well and is much easier to use than the factory twist spring pin.
  7. I have been wanting a lathe for a long time. Of course, I don't want to spend a lot of money at first till I see if I can like it or not. Also, I know a lathe is a money pit. I would like to turn legs for small tables and make gifts. I guess I am asking for any advice you guys have? If you need more information just ask. Thanks, Don
  8. the leg was busted up too much and I could turn another one quicker than four or five times gluing all the pieces in. And will be stronger.. Piece of oak been stored in the shop for almost 20 years.. It was 3" x 3" and now after turning it down I noticed some weather cracks... Good ole oak , uck I'll probably run some 1/2 or 5/8" dowels cross those cracks.....before I put the chair back together
  9. I was looking at some completed projects and some mentioned run times of about 10 or 12 hours. This brought up several questions: 1. How many of you guys have regular spindles vs. routers? 2. Is the spindle air cooled or water cooled? 3. Air Cooled or Water cooled, which is your recommendation? 4. If you have a router, do you run it that long at one time? 5. On a project that runs for 10 or 12 hours, do you leave the shop while it is running or do you stick around making sure nothing goes south?
