  1. If you haven't gotten that Valentines present, maybe you should dig out a pillow and a couple of blankets for the couch! Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN posted a beautiful walnut bowl in our continuing thread "OFF The Lathe And Just Finished"- Rusty has another image and a little about the finish in his post. Rusty also posted that he is looking to purchase a McNaughton Center Saver. Check out his post here- @StaticLV2 is tinkering with segmented turning. He created a really nice cutting jig for the angles. The results are gorgeous! You can see the jig and his process images starting in this post- We have a new member to our forum! @kreisdorph, from Tennessee, posted some of his awesome work. You really need to check out his post to see more of his turnings- One of our members, Brian Longshore, "Big B", is battling the dreaded "C". He's a Navy vet. Here's the link to his Patriot profile- https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/profile/4825-big-b/ If you do Facebook, you can follow his progress at- https://www.facebook.com/brian.longshore.9. What’s Coming Up- Click on the image for the link to registration- From Cindy Drozda- For The Newbies- From Richard Raffan, a tip on making/using a "tail center disc" Last week we posted a safety tip when using the Jacob's Chuck with the tail stock. Lyle Jamieson has an idea that secures the chuck in the tail stock- Expand Your Horizons- Richard Raffan continues to work on his stash of green elm. The warping really creates interesting designs. New Turning Items- Sorry couldn't find anything interesting. Everything Else- I had gotten some cherry a while back only to discover most of it had "windshake" damage. One of the pieces destined to be a bowl became pretty much fodder for the garbage man. I salvaged one small piece for a little bowl only to have it explode while sanding. So as not to have the efforts be a total loss, I cut what was left to see the profile and how I was doing with wall thickness consistency. I was using only my fingers as a gauge, except for the bottom, where I use a gauge/jig from Sam Angelo to determine the thickness. I'm pretty happy. The wall thickness could have been a little better at the transition from side to bottom. And maybe a little thinner overall. Safe turning
  2. Our Patriot turners have been busy in their shops this week with a wide range of project! Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker accepted his club president's challenge for making gnomes or "gonks". Steve received lots of comments and questions. Please check out his post for more images and ideas- Steve also showed us a new toy he bought. I have to say, I'm kinda partial to this one myself Sooner or later it happens to all of us. @Gerald was turning a bowl and disaster struck. But undaunted, Gerald pressed on and salvaged what otherwise would have been firewood. Check out what he did and the end results at- New member @Reese Aukee posted some of her awesome turnings. Reese is new to turning but it looks like she is a natural and a real eye for creativity!! She shared more of her work here- @Ron Altier is finally getting back into the shop after a brief hiatus as caregiver. As for most of us, woodturning is our relaxation and meditation- All did not goes as planned for Ron. As often happens, "the best laid plans of mice and men..." This post by @Headhunter reminded me that we really haven't promoted our "Ringmaster Sub-Forum" very often. Check out this post for some fantastic creations! Here is the link to the Ringmaster sub-forum- https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forums/forum/98-ringmaster-turning/ What’s Coming Up- Click on the images for the links to registration and more information- From the AAW- From a social media post by Rebecca DeGroot- For The Newbies- From Carl Jacobson, a video covering some tools that make turning easier- Turning a thin walled bowl has a bit of a learning curve but they are beautiful and elegant. However, thin walled bowls are rather fragile and may not be suitable for utilitarian use. Here, Kent from Turn A Wood Bowl, demonstrates how to have to the best of both worlds. Mike Peace shows us we don't need a chainsaw or a chunk of log to make a bowl- Expand Your Horizons- Some turning, some carving and a lot of sanding when Tim Yoder tackles a Manzanita root- This one's for @Ron Altier. Ron turns crochet hooks for his Mrs. This video, from Alan Stratton, shows how to turn quilting tools. New Turning Items- Woodturners wonders have their Lathe Track System on sale. Check it out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/lathe-track Mentioned this before. Ruth Niles sold her business to Carl and Robin Jacobson. Ruth is holding a clearance sale to avoid having to ship a lot of stock from Pennsylvania to Oregon. Here are some examples of the savings available- Click on the image for the link to more sale items. The sale ends April 3!!! Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- Cherry burl/wood platter from a piece of wood I got at the Nittany Woodturners Club meeting a while back-
  3. I'm having slippage problems with my tailstock on my 12 year old Jet mini. It will slip on the bed and move away from the piece I'm turning. I've adjusted the off center lock a couple of times, I've removed it and roughed up the surfaces that lock it in place. The only way I can get it to stay is to use some leverage with a small box end wrench. Even then it will loosen. Any suggestions?
  4. A while back I was having a lot of problems with my tail stop lock slipping. I then made a new washer assy that worked well. Now that fell apart, JB weld didn't hold. I figured I'd order a new one. Then I got a brain fart and swapped the original locking washers from the rest and tailstock. Works like new.
  5. I got to work on my mini tailstock slippage. I went to our local farm store where they have larger washers than hardware stores. As you can see from the pictures of the pictures, small is original one piece, large is my assembly of 4 washers (42 cents) held together with JB weld. I had to do a small amount of filing to get a nice fit. I did some testing and it holds good. The clamping surface has probably doubled. The question is.........will JB weld hold. I was going to solder them and may have to if JB fails
