  1. Got some progress made on the sharpening station built in. Counter top is on, drawer slides are on order, and I have plenty of room for a coffee maker and a box of doughnuts (not shown)
  2. My apologies to @Smallpatch for giving credit to another member on making the chess piece. I have totally lost my mind. Finally got that computer change-over done (I think), we'll see whether the phone rings tonight. Note to self: clean out your own contact's list. No one need 2894 contacts to try to inform of a new email address. Our Patriot Turners- @Smallpatch was asked to recreate a chess piece. Can’t wait to see the results! Jess has a funny story to go along with the request. Be sure to check out his post- @HandyDanTurned a set of incredible earrings. Dan is our resident "inside-out" turning expert and these beauties accent his talents! Dan received lots of comments and he also describes his process in this post- It is encouraging to see our turner's progress as they post their projects. Some of our member have years of experience while others are relative new to the discipline. @Bob Hodge tells us about how he is developing his creativity gene. I love the way he has chosen to display his turnings. So much better than setting on a shelf. Please check out his post with his feelings about turning Patriot member @BillyJack posted a question for our members about lathe tools. Maybe you can help him decide on what to get- We've had a couple of additional comments added to previous posts. @Bundoman Update his post about his winter projects and his daughter's new lathe- And going back into October on a post concerning end grain turning problems, @Bob Hodge added this information- What’s Coming Up- Pretty well caught up-to-date on what's happening in the near future. For The Newbies- A couple of videos from Mike Peace on drilling on the lathe- and- An older video but a nice useful beginner project from Robo Hippy The first installment on spoon turning from Neal Brand- Expand Your Horizons- Alan Stratton continues his demonstration of the eccentric chuck. Stay tuned to this channel as he \has pronised to show how to make the chuck- Richard Raffan turns square plates- not without a little problem- Cindy Drozda discusses turning tool handles. This was a live presentation and a little lengthy but has great information- New Turning Items- If you turn segments pieces, you are probably aware of the wedgie sleds for the table saw. This video shows a similar device for the bandsaw. Not exactly new, the Tormek wet grinder has been around for a long time. Here's Glenn Lucas demonstrating the turning sharpening jigs for woodturning tools- Craft Supplies USA has some new turning blanks available. These are Chroma-Ply blanks https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/t/29/Project-Blanks?b=chromaply&utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=chromaply&utm_campaign=22-02-blanks Woodturners Wonders has a Valentines sale. Check the website for more items and coupon code for discounts- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/sweetheart-sale-2022 Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I have a Sorby spiraling and texturing tool. I'm not very good with it. But I've seen some awesome patterns created by turners like Darryl Jones- https://www.instagram.com/dreadknotwoodshop/?hl=en This is one of his pieces from his Etsy shop It amazes me what he, and others, can do. Anyway I've been practicing and recording results so I can reproduce the embellishments on other pieces. I probably should have picked a softer wood than white oak. Sometime back I made a tool described by Mike Peace for small pieces (the one with the brass shank). I use it on bowl bottoms for a spiral pattern. Safe turning and stay well
  3. A record of some observations after having an opportunity to use both tools. Tormek Round grinding wheel leaves a radius or hollow grind This is desirable for some applications like a parting tool. Does a great job on gouges Hollow grind is less than ideal for bench chisels and plane blades Time Takes longer to sharpen Preparation Since the diameter of the wheel changes with use, set up is inconsistent from session to session. Jigs and notation labels on the tool help to mitigate this, but still requires fiddling each time you return. Steel stays cool Re-grinding bevel takes an excessive amount of time. Tool not really designed for this work Cost Very expensive, in excess of $1000 Long term More expensive to operate over time due to high cost of abrasives An assortment of grits requires significant investment in stones. Adaptability Jigs are available for a WIDE variety of edged tools from Axe to Scissor. Sorby Pro Edge Platen is flat and leaves a flat surface Ideal for skews, bench chisels, plane blades Does a great job on gouges Time Quick and easy changes between abrasive grits Coarse grit belts allow for quick regrinding Belts are available to allow for a very high polish 320 grit is good enough for lathe application Heats the steel Cool steel by dipping in water as needed Consistent distance to platen Jig is consistent each time you return to sharpen Quick and easy with no fiddling Notation label with wing angle, protrusion, and hole allows for fast easy setup upon return. Required after market accessories for lathe tools. https://www.amazon.com/Robert-Sorby-Proedge-Proset/dp/B008AK7ULO/ref=pd_sbs_1/132-8175967-9286741?pd_rd_w=7PClz&pf_rd_p=0f56f70f-21e6-4d11-bb4a-bcdb928a3c5a&pf_rd_r=9ZMT2EMRXCCZXWEF8G4T&pd_rd_r=8854af3f-d351-402e-a86f-914ddc6c1f17&pd_rd_wg=3iG5v&pd_rd_i=B008AK7ULO&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/Robert-Sorby-Proedge-Long-Grind/dp/B008AK6HQ8 Cost About half the cost of the Tormek Long Term Belts run less than $20 and last a long time Adaptability Available jigs are limited to wood working tools .40
  4. The Tormek sharpener came up in a thread a couple days ago. Coincidentally, I got a flyer from Grizzly yesterday. They have a Tormek knockoff. Does anyone have this Griz model? How does it work for you?
  5. If you have been wanting to buy a Tormek, now is the time. https://www.hartvilletool.com/product/1006/tormek
