  1. Well... The Old Jail pen making project is in full swing! A very large box of pen making supplies arrived and was brought to the basement shop. We spent last Thursday evening gluing tubes into place. Didn't get all 100 glued up- even with the fans running, the fumes were getting to a toxic level. From this point, we split the work. The "boss" took this box back to his shop for trimming and turning. He doesn't have a sander so I lent him my barrel trimmer. After the glue dried (thick CA), I set up my sanding station and trimmed the blanks. Each blank set was numbered and a grain alignment mark placed on the outside when the blanks were originally cut. That number and alignment mark will be lost during the turning process. To keep everything in sets, and aligned, additional precautions need to be taken. The alignment marks are transferred to the edge and inside of the blanks. The number is added to the piece of tape that keeps each set together. The turning and sanding process is very straight forward. The pine is extremely soft so a light touch is required along with a sharp gouge. I ended up re-touching up the gouge about every third set of blanks. Used a diamond honing stick. Although the skew chisel left a smoother surface, it caused more tear out at the ends near the bushings. So I opted to do all of the turning with this gouge. Turned to shape- Looks pretty rough but the pine is so soft, sanding was a breeze! 100, 120, 150, and 180- while the lathe/blank was spinning. Then turned off the lathe and sanded with the grain using 180, 220, 320. The powered back up and sanded with Abralon pads 350, 500, 1000, 2000 and 4000 grits. Finally, burnishing with turning shavings while the lathe was spinning. This is what I had finished on Tuesday morning. Right now, I'm up to 30 sets turned and waiting on the CA to really harden on my last 18 sets. Once they are trimmed/turned/sanded it will be on to finishing. More next week! Safe Turning!!

    Turners Tape

    About 10/12 years ago, I got a roll of what was called "Turners tape" Double sided tape with a blue plastic separator. It worked really good. I ran out and got some carpet tape with fiberglass fibers in it. Worked ok, but I didn't fully trust it and it was a pain to peel off the backing. I did a search for turners tape and found it, of course, but wonder if it is worth the price. Nearly triple the price of "non turners tape" What do you use and do you like it?

    Pen Turning Deal

    Hey all you pen turners , Woodcraft has a deal pen deal
  4. I'm going to have to think of myself as a turner in training, coz' I just bought a PM 3520B Tricked out with some options. Delivery in a few days. Now I gotta think about tooling. My current crop of lathe tools is abysmal. I have two nice gouges, but the rest of my kit is all of a piece from a box of tools that I got free and were not worth much more than I paid. No name junk sold to people who dunno what they are doing.

    This here is the start of my idea to make a paper pot plant maker. Using a piece of apple for the base and a piece of maple for the cup. Thanks for the idea Lew.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
