  1. Finally a day without rain! Too bad I had to spend it indoors. Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan created the most awesome miniature cremation urn for a friend. Dan certainly has a talent for making the most personalized gifts. Check out Dan's post to see why he made this particular item- @Steve Krumanaker made a couple of walking sticks, that we featured a couple Wednesdays ago. Steve produced 3 videos of the turning/construction processes. We posted the videos in the Turner's Forum but in case you missed them, here's a link- @Gerald was kind enough to give us all a heads up on an AAW resource. A lot of the Association of American Woodturners resources require a subscription/membership. This particular one is free to everyone with very few limitations. In last weeks, "Wednesday's..." @Gerald posted pictures of a "turning" tool he is repairing. If you turn a lot of projects from logs. This gem comes in really handy! What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- Turned pens are always a nice gift and they are not difficult to make, although they do require a few extra "accessories". Here's a 2 part video from Tim Yoder making a not-so-ordinary pen from a laser cut kit. The second part is linked from Tim's YouTube channel. Expand Your Horizons- Mike Peace shows us how to create a natural edge winged bowl. It sure came out beautifully. Watch you knuckles!!! New Turning Items- Our very generous sponsor, Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ), has a new product! The EWT Wire Burning Kit!!! Here's a video from Carl Jacobson demonstrating it! So Cool!!! Everything Else- Rick Turns put up his list of April YouTube turning videos- Safe turning
  2. I have to buy a new vacuum for my workshop. I use it for general cleanup and attachment to my router table and for handheld plunge routing. My 12 year old Ridgid croaked last night.....my fault. Since I haven't bought one in all these years I don't know which manufacturers have excelled. I was considering Shop-Vac (made in USA) but Ridgid, Craftsman reviews seem to be good. I would like to max out at $100 - $150. Thank You for your suggestions.
  3. Sorry as I seemed to redirect from the original posting. This chair is actual an old children's rocking chair dated 1912 that was given to my Mother-in-Law as a yound child. My wife now has this chair and from the first time I remember seeing it the seat has been cracked. Further investigation shows the crack in probably the worst location as it goes through where the back post is attached. So from the attached pictures you can see the extent of the crack and it seems I would need to remove at least two of the screws on the bottom plate holding the bottom together, glue the crack and then clamp and screw it back down? Or is it maybe better to use a filler and try to match the finish? Maybe both? Add some filler with the glue? I've never attempted to repair this old a piece of furniture and being a family piece I'd really rather not mess it up. Just saying, the wife wouldn't say anything but I'd be highly disappointed in myself if I caused more harm than good. Her parents were very much family to me as well and they are both gone now.
  4. Use your wet or dry vacuum outside on the end of the drain line to suck out the lent and trash . I do this about once a year. A window unit don't count, only the central unit needs this help... Just let the window unit fall out the window and it will be clear after you set it back in..Second thought, I keep my shop unit tilting down outside to take care of the extra water build up so no worry there...The big unit inside does make a mess if not cleared regularly...
  5. some gozillion years ago I was given a twin state Sgt Welsh rotary vein vacuum pump that fell of a truck. No really it fell off the truck & got damaged ( just the belt shroud) but there was an insurance claim and this one was unclaimed so the shipper gave it to me. And a decade or so later I'm finally trying to put it to use. I got a small air tank and welded bungs to it so I can run 1" piping to it. It is the vacuum reservoir in case of power failure. Then mounted it and the pump together around a corner on the other side of a wall and ran 1" copper to the lathe with a parker needle valve and a vacuum gauge and LOOKY MA I can hold a great vacuum and even lower the hold to what ever HG I want with the needle valve . AND When I shut it off it holds the vacuum for a good long time. The reason for the large piping is over a long run ya gotta have a big pipe a small one just doesn't work well
  6. In rebuilding my shop after move, I intended to build a Thien baffle for my Rigid shopvac. Part of it is the function (preserve the good VF6000 filter I put in the vac, and also slightly easier to empty/swap buckets that empty the vac)... but part of it is the intangible joy of the build and pushing the limits of it's effectiveness. Then I stumbled into this cyclone for $16. I don't know how effective it is, and I'm never thrilled about ordering from China... but at that price it's very hard to justify building my own Thien baffle until all my other shop wannabuilds are done. Has anyone tried this, or other clone cyclones? All opinions welcome.
  7. Just perusing the net this morning before work, and I stumbled across this vacuum hose reel. Of course we could make our own, but to see the pro model demoed is fun. Here is their website: Fast Cap Super Reel I have no horse in the game, just showing and telling.
  8. Lew I saw in your "turned round" picture, your set up for your vacuum when turning. Does that work well? Do you use all the time or just for sanding? I've been thinking about a vacuum set up, but haven't come up with much yet.
