  3. I mean honestly guys should a hollowing tool handle be this big. Is it me or is this company over compensating for something???
  4. The Takenaka Carpentry Tools Museum was opened in 1984 in Nakayamate, Kobe, as the only museum of carpentry tools in Japan, with the objective to collect and conserve such disappearing tools as a cultural heritage, and to pass them on to the next generation through research and exhibitions.

  5. Have you ever been working on, or polishing a piece that is supported only by the chuck and bumped it off center. I have and have been able to use the tail stock attachments to get it back to center. Provided that they will fit. However, my attachments are small, I have a mini lathe. When the piece of work is too large to fit the attachments, such as a hole in a in a piece, my attachments will fit in the hole. I made a couple of wooden Oak pieces similar to the metal ones to solve that problem. The one time I tried it out, it worked. I have NO intention using them for anything else. You can see the metal ones that go in the tail stock with bearings and the larger ones I made. Any thoughts?
  6. I have the 3 piece carbon steel turning set that Rockler had on sale last year. They stayed sharp a long time. If one edge dulls, you turn it to a new sharp surface. They are round, square and triangular. Today I went to turn the round one and got an idea. I removed the cutter and placed it on my hand diamond sharpening tool. One side is course and the other fine. The tops and bottoms of these are perfectly flat. I placed the top (cutting edge) down and worked my way thru the course to the fine. It did a good job and I am pleased at the results. The sharpener is from Home Depot and cost under $20
  7. Hey all you wood turners out there, I have a question for you, but first a bit of background on the problem. A few days ago I purchased a round bar hollower because it was a reasonable price without breaking the bank, and the cutter looked to be about the right size for most of the jobs I would have it do. Well I got it Saturday and tested it out a bit on some random scrap last night. Problem: When presenting the tool to the wood, the wood wants to yank and twist the tools cutter away from the wood. The question: Is there a way (WITHOUT destroying the tool) to flatten the bottom side of the bar to keep it (hopefully) from twisting? Of course I would wish to avoid grinding the back of the tool where the screw attaches to the bar, but beyond that I should be ok right? Thanks
  8. When I turn I go back and forth from a regular lathe to the Legacy and not excelling in either. This is where I started doing tea pots. Wife has been collection tea pots for a while and I thought why not add my little brainy thoughts. Just like hers, they don't do nothing but just sit there needing to be dusted......The tea pot I made her for our 50 th anniversary I accidently sold it at her yearly sale. I felt bad but money talks. So since then I made her a few more hoping she forget about it??? I don't especially like red stain but I still got lots of it from more than 50 years ago and need to use up. A few drops of this stuff goes a long ways. Some of the bottles the lids were not on real tight and in all those years the liquid has turned to dust.
  9. It was more than a hunnert dollahs It was the Glen Lucas one. Anyway I was jonesing to try it So I got myself a hunk of cheap steel bar 3/8" x 1" And I rummaged up a half inch hunk of hardened High speed Steel ( a metal lathe tool bit) TIG Welded 'em together and got this
  10. How do the rest of you store your lathe tools? I am looking for ideas and inspiration. I don't have any more wall space available, so that is not an option. I currently have them on a shelf which rests on the bottom part of my lathe, but that gets to be cumbersome, and I wind up laying my tools on my table saw that is right behind me when I am in the middle of a project. I don't like that either, because it is too easy for them to roll off. Thinking of some kind of a turntable or rack mounted to the end of my lathe, but I also don't want to block the bed in case I want to take the tail stock off and slide something else up there. Rockler has a turntable that caught my eye, but it looks flimsy, and had some less than stellar reviews, but that is the basic direction I am leaning. Ideas and pictures would be greatly appreciated.
  11. I've used the Makita drill set and know it's a workhorse for around $240. Is there anything truly comparable on the less than $240 side? I prefer Dewalt but not familiar with the new stuff...
  12. Wouldn't this make a wonderful tool cabinet conversion? The case is there, just add dividers and such, reinforce the doors and install piano hinges, I've been on the lookout for sometime now. I like the style too. Only 125 bucks, just a couple miles from me. I love repurposing, this I think would do the job.
  13. I have a soft spot for awls, ice picks and pin vises. Seems I can't pass one up when I see it at a sale. It does have to be reasonably priced though. If the tip needs replaced in a pin vise I found auto brake spring links can be reworked for use as seen in the upper right corned. The end from a long stemmed spring will work too. Get the Dremmel out, cut it to length, chuck it in the drill and sharpen it on the belt sander. For the Exacto knives the sharp end of a big safety pin works well. I like to use it when trying to get the release paper off the double stick tape. I have one ice pick that is new old stock and has a protective cardboard tube still on it. Here is a couple pictures but there are more I didn't gather from the metal shop out back.
  14. Planning and organizing my work space, I am going over in my head different ways to build, or not to build, storage for my hand tools. I have gone over in my head a whole bunch of ideas, and one thing I always love to think about is re-purposing old cabinets for my storage solutions. I currently have old kitchen overhead cabinets now, where my finishing supplies and hardware is stored, they were given to me by a buddy at work years ago, and they have served me well. I was looking through local ebay sales in my area for antique cabinets, that I could reconfigure to fit my hand tools, and I came across this old pine cabinet for $285 bucks on Ebay. The lumber would cost that much to build it, and then my time, of which I have very little, it would be nice to just have this cabinet, and retrofit some dividers into it for my hand planes, and shaves and braces etc. I think this would be a really fun project wouldn't it? I could most definitely make this work for my hand tools storage.
  15. I am a self taught turner and have learned by trail and error, videos, books, etc. I have a nice assortment of turning tools and have learned to use all of them to achieve some nice turnings. However the tiny gouge pictured has me baffled. I have tried several times to use it and always end up digging or bending. I'd like to use it to make something but want to do it knowing much better than I do now about how to proceed. Does it require special rules? Things like speed, size of stock or just something that requires patience. A small twist of the wrist can inflict damage. Any advise is appreciated Thanks

  18. Guys, does anyone plan on making any Black Friday tool buys? Any great deals to be had? I'm looking for a good palm router, with an led light and great reviews.
  19. IF I can get this camera-ooski to upload a few photos, looks like it might work. Seems I have a duplicate shot. Just a Walnut & Pine Tool Box. Filling up fast, too

    Disston Saw

    This is not my saw, I found this image on Ebay and I just like it a whole lot.
  21. Took a bit today, to assemble the parts, and fit things into the tool chest. Tray turned out a bit wider than needed. Lumber was a bit thicker than needed to be. had to cut a rebate along the tote tray's side, to allow the tray to sit down in the chest. Next time, will use a thinner stock..( and there seems to always be a "next time") Ok, a look or two of the completed tray, all nestled into it's new home I suppose I had better hide than level, before Moody shows up. A view from the other direction I think this chest is getting ....almost full nah, I think i can fit a few more things in there...
  22. so, back to the Dungeon Shop I go. Have a nice stash of chisels, nothing real fancy, but they need a better home. Already have a spot for the router bits but I don't think it would work to hold chisels. Grabbed a pine board that was long enough to go in the Tool Chest as a tray. It was a might wide so I ripped it down the middle with the old Craftsman circular saw. There are just some things I will not do by hand, and ripping long boards with a handsaw is one of them. Got the two halves into the vise, to take care of any dippity-dos I did both edges, too. That Wards #78 was next. Needed a rebate to house the bottom of the tray. Photo is a might fuzzy( again) but There IS a rebate there. The wood was so smooth, it shone like a beacon. Then, hand sawed for some dados. needed one on each end, and one in the middle. I was going to rebate the bottom of the dividers, but the fights were starting. So, made the floor board the full length, instead. One dado was in some knotty grain, and broke out, screws for that end. Trial fits as i go I WILL get YELLED at for having my "junk" on HER washer. The floor boards are two pieces. The old sycamore one there wasn't quite long enough, and had a bow at one end. Had a thin piece of QSWO available, just a might wide, and too long. Saw the end off, and used a jointer to get to the right width. Did find out something strange about this old oak It makes little curly things, instead of long shavings. I did get the floor for the tray ready for a test fit Just some screws, nails and glue. then come the fun parts, getting a way to set all them chisels in the tray. That will be...next time. Stay tuned.
