  1. Saw this pop up on E-Bay, today. Looks like it will sure beat trying to turn dowels one at a time on the lathe Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN posted another one of his beautiful segmented bowls. I really like how he made the bottom of it. Judging from all the positive comments, our turners were in agreement on this beauty. See more images in Rusty's post- @Gerald was turning a vase and found a small "treasure" within the wood. It really wasn't something he was happy about- These things wreak havoc on the t
  2. Test Run! IMG_0977.mp4
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. The one thing I didn't like about my circular steady rest was it required moving the tail stock to put it on the lathe. When turning with a drive center, I had to be extremely careful to get the piece remounted in the exact orientation to reduce the chances of it being slightly off from its original position. Searching around, I found a post by Alan Stratton. Mr. Stratton's version permitted adding/removing the steady rest without having to move the tail stock. Here's a link to Mr. Stratton's website- https://www.aswoodturns.com/ I pretty much followed Mr. Stratton's de
  6. Lew I looked at the steady rest video and I liked the idea. I also designed mine for my mini lathe and can also insert my steady rest without removing my tailstock. I have two sizes of rollers on reversible arms. The white rollers are from shower stall windows and the black are for printers and have bearings. Both work well.
  7. Here we are, into March already. Hard to believe. The robins have been here for a couple of weeks so I guess spring can't be too far away. Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan used his machinist skills to design and build a really useful drilling attachment for his lathe. His tailstock quill was reengineered for easier drilling- Dan received lots of comments on his work! Please check out more images and some of the things our members had to say! @RustyFN 's new lathe was delivered this week! I hope we didn't cause it to rust too bad
  8. Coming up on the end of January already! Time sure does fly during a Pandemic. A little less, this week, from our own but a lot more from others. Our Patriot Turners- We had a post this week from @ehbowen asking for some information about green wood. Eric got his hands on some freshly cut ash and wanted to know about preserving it. The post generated a lot of comments on turning, sanding project supplies and more. Maybe you can help give Eric some ideas. Check out his original post. @Pauley had a problem with some of his sanding discs and
  9. Just a gentle reminder- When posting threads, PLEASE add tags to your posts. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier asked us for ideas about modifications that could be made to make his lathe run slower. He received lots of comments and suggestions. If you have any recommendations, maybe you could help him out- Ron also posted a few more ornaments he finished and explained how he made some of the marvelous designs- @RustyFN Has been really busy this week! He started out showing us a bowl he turned- Ru
  10. WOW! What a week it has been here in the Woodturner's Forum. Forgive me if I missed a post. Before we get started, please check out this post for posting your projects. We want your projects to be front and center in our forum and get the attention they deserve- Our Patriot Turners- @John Hechel is cranking out some awesome French rolling pins. He certainly has his work cut out for him. In his post, John explains his processes and some of his techniques- @RustyFN brought us up to date on the bowl and emblem
  11. Been wanting to have one of these for my lathe and finally got around to making it. Had almost everything lying around the shop. Scrap plywood ~ 17" x 48" and a piece ~ 10" x 10". Hardware is all 1/4 x 20 machine bolts/nuts and fender washers. I may replace the wing nuts with knobs to make it a little easier on old hands. The cam action hold down has been in my "extras box" for a couple of years waiting on a worthwhile project. Got it from Woodcraft. The wheels are from an $8 pair of In-Line Skates bought from Goodwill. The "circle" is made of 3 layers of 3/4 plywood. The wheel hol
  12. I got to spend some time on my steady rest today, more importantly, I got the wheels for it. Over last weekend I went to several second hand stores, a couple sports stores, walmart, and a skating rink trying to find inline skate wheels. Finally, I broke down and ordered some from amazon. They make great bearings for a steady rest. Thought about buying the Carter steady rest but that was before I checked the price. One sized to fit my lathe is close to six hundred bucks, WOW! Carter makes quality products but that's way more than I wanted to spend. This one is 3 layers of 3/4" plywood laminated
