So come to find out I was looking for an option to weld a 1 inch piece of pipe to the tool rests that I previously ordered. OOOOOOOOOOPS waisted my money. Ordered a set of 4 from Amazon, the tool rest shaft post was TOO small for what I need. I called Wen support yesterday and was informed that the tool rest pole shaft size was 1 inch in diameter sheesh. I feel like a noob now. Wasted 40 bucks on a bunch of tool rests. How ever I can cut the base off them and re purpose them at a later date. How ever I did make a re order this month on these. Not sure if any of you guys in here have us
Well I was half way thru this week's Wednesday's... and everything just disappeared Hope my computer doesn't have the Corona Beer Virus. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald showed us a beautiful embellished plate he is making. In his post, Gerald explains the process and techniques he used- @Larry Schweitzer posted a picture of a shop made tailstock he made from scratch! His work is awesome! In his post, he describes in more detail just why and how this new piece came into existence- @Ro
Side post since I obviously love talking about myself today... Haas anyone upgraded the stock tool rest that came with your lathe, and if so...to what? Noticed yesterday that mine has some serious nicks in it. Didn't really bother me until I tried my new chisel, the square edge vice an oval one. Now I cannot stop noticing them. Is it worth an upgrade, or just figure out how to smooth them out and move on smartly?
Another week in the books. Been busy making requested Christmas gifts but unfortunately it has been all flatwork. However, our band of turners here at the Patriot have been busy. @Steve Krumanaker showed us a little box he made, last week. Well, he finished a bunch more and they are beauties! @HandyDan Finished up a "few" pens and pencils. You may remember that Dan uses the "guts" from premade pens/pencils instead of buying expensive kits. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools posted a really awesome bowl turned by Will Atw
