  1. I've been interested in trying resin casting and turning for bowls. Although I'm not interested enough just yet to purchase a pressure pot. I've been trying to research resins that I can mix that do NOT require a pressure pot and just time to cure with a bit of color as well. I think I want to try a couple of times with the resin so I can get familiar with it if I ever decide to get into the resin stuff. I do plan on going for the gallon bottles off the bat so that I know I have enough to make a couple blanks to test. But I'm unsure of what I would need to pick up for non pressure pot res
  2. So lately I've been dealing with wobbly pieces. Even after they are rounded they still seem to wobble. Does anybody have any ideas on how to correct this. I've never had too much of an issue with it before until the last couple of days. I can't even explain it. Note I did hold the chisel one handed how ever I barely touching it up on the piece so it wouldn't catch onto the wood and cause injury, but I placed it just enough to show the horrible wobble not sure how to correct this issue. Video should give you a better idea of what I'm dealing with.
  3. Okay so I’m not going to be able to do any turning today. It will have to wait until tomorrow when I can get some items from Home Depot. With that being said I put a block of oak up on the lathe with a cut off blank for the face plate to attach to I spun it up and the thing started walk-in across the bench... Thing meaning lathe. How ever the lathe does not offer any specific way to really bolt it into place so I’m looking for some suggestions on how I could do this so I can turn larger objects more safely. Here are some shots of it. Thanks ahead of time.
  4. Okay I'm running into a couple minor problems. I basically ruined a piece playing with the new jaws but that's okay. I was prepared for that. A new piece is being glued up and getting ready to be worked hopefully for later this evening. How ever I'm running into a slight bit of a problem and am in need of some advice. I've been using short screws with the face place in order to make sure it says tight. That worked for a bit now I'm finding that sometimes the screws are actually getting broken off in the face plate which is not a good thing. meaning the heads snapped off. Probably due t

    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.
  6. Hey guys well bad news the harbor freight order fell through so I canceled it out all together any how I'm looking at something a bit better of a product anyway. I am looking at a Grizzly Industrial 16 inch by 46 inch Wood Lathe with DRO I am wondering if any of you guys use this particular model for your turning and if it would be a better investment over all rather than spending the 400 on a harbor freight that could just turn into a piece of junk and just out right spend the money on something decent. I am able to purchase the item as is, fortunately if I do purchase this it would basica
  7. I have built some fancy birdhouses for my wife. I used fencing Cedar because it weathers good. Well, I thought it did. Now a few years later, all of them are badly cracked or weathered away. I must also add that they were hit by some big hail. (That I can do nothing about.) However I am up for suggestions on a better wood or perhaps a finish that would help them last longer. The Colorado sun is brutal and destroys most wood in short order. I am not going to repair or rebuild till winter, so there is no rush. Birds are now starting their nests and I discovered how bad they were when I cl
  8. I'd like to be the first to welcome all our members to The Patriot's Pulse. Given the activity we have had recently, and all the great suggestions our members have had, we have decided to open up a forum where all of your suggestions and concerns can be gathered in one place, and hashed out for the betterment of our woodworking community. So when you get that flash of brilliance as many of our members have, regarding a great way to improve our community, you now have a home to spill your thoughts and ideas out into. I know many ideas regarding our community have b
  9. Do we have, or could have, a forum dedicated to tips? Not talking about fixes for problems brought up my our members, but just things we do in the course of our passion that it occurs to us might be of use to someone else. Not a separate one for each topic, as that could be labor intensive to set up, but we could lump woodworking, turning, scroll sawing, etc. together in one listing. Or is that already part of an existing forum that I just haven't found yet?
  10. Hello, I got my hands on some Black Limba hardwood. My Aunts, granddaughter's father in law bought it then died. I have a bunch, maybe 800 BF and I'm making my daughter in law a jewelry box out of it for Christmas. I need to turn some knobs to match the box. I've been trying but there is a lot of tear out. Is this due to my skill level or to the wood? Has anyone turned this wood? I have sharp tools, any pointers? Best regards, Ron

  12. Proposal A new CNC forum has been discussed, bantered and messaged about. I am starting to get multiple messages regarding this subject, and I love them! But I just thought perhaps it would be best to put the idea out here, in open forum format so we can collaborate on the idea and discuss how best to proceed, and to have all suggestions in one area. Firstly, I love the idea, we want this to happen, and we will make it happen, but we want to jump in correctly and good. We already have a great start to the CNC Gallery as suggested by @honesttjohn and he has populated that
  13. Is there a link or can someone give me information on a good Wood Router. I'm looking into building a router table and mounting it so I can make kitchen raised door panels and more. Or your own personal experience with a good router. How big a router I would need.
  14. Recently I've been looking at 6 grinders to replace the old household duty Black and Decker that I've had for quite a few years. It still works, I just want a nicer one. So far I've come down to two grinders. A JET 1/2 hp single speed and a Palmgren 1/3 hp, variable speed Any thoughts or experiences with these machines ?
  15. I am curious, do we have any instrument makers here? We are trying to see if there may be a need for an image gallery for musical instruments. Thanks for any feedback!
