From 'spindle' to 'bowl' grind... - 7 replies

Is it possible to ‘re-grind’ a spindle gouge into a bowl gouge? I have an opportunity to purchase a used but better than average and highly affordable ‘starter’ set of traditional turning tools, several of which are identified as ‘spindle gouges’. I want to use these as ‘practice’ tools…...

HSS Turning Tools (Follow-up Question)... - 5 replies

As I watch more and more turning videos I notice that while most of the demonstrators have a full array of tools in the background, some of which are of course specialty tools, they typically use just two or three chisels for the entire project. What do you consider your ‘baseline’ of turning chisels by type, size, and specialty g...

Easy Wood Tools vs 'Traditional' - 22 replies

I started turning again a couple of years ago after a thirty year hiatus and at the advice of several friends I purchased the Easy Wood turning tools. Has anyone tried and rejected the Easy Wood tools in favor of traditional turning tools, and if so, why? I apologize if this question is redundant as I did post it some months ago, just thou...

Chucking Square Stock - 6 replies

I utilize the Teknatool SuperNova2 lathe chuck with a variety of jaws. The instructions for which and many of the YouTube instructional videos I’ve seen make note of the ‘dovetail’ configuration and how that grips the stock. My question is regarding when someone clamps square stock into the chuck where I don’t see a pre...

Anchor Seal vs Paste Wax... - 10 replies

Well…I’ve just ‘ruined’ a nice Granadillo blank. I didn’t ‘reseal’ it between workings and it’s cracked all to you know what. OK…lesson learned. What do you other ‘turners’ use to seal blanks in between turnings…anchor seal, paste wax, etc? If you have a particular f...

Replaceable Cutter Heads for Turning... - 6 replies

I utilize the ‘Easy Wood Tool’ turning tools and like them very much. One thing I would like, however, is a cutter that has a slight ‘inward’ facing radius (the opposite of the ‘outward’ radius one sold by Easy Wood). Do any of you know of a brand of a cutting tool that fits this description? I’ve h...

Teknatool's 'Power Grip Jaw Set'... - 5 replies

I could use some guidance/suggestions from anyone experienced with Teknatool’s Power Grip jaw set. These jaws appear to have the ‘depth’ to hold a tenon upwards of 2” long whereas the manual says only 12.5mm (sorry about not doing the metric conversion). Questions include… Does anyone have experience with the...

Cocobolo Bowl... - 8 replies

I just completed this bowl from cocobolo and finished with a walnut oil and carnuba paste wax finish. This is a great turning wood and can recommend it to anyone even though it is a bit pricey, the dust can be a nuisance to asthmatics, and it will dull your tools/bits relatively quickly. Question…does anyone know a wood with similar pr...

Glue Block... - 5 replies

I’ve not much experience with glue blocks as I used a different method. That said…I projects coming up where I’d like to use this technique. Question…when gluing a block to a fresh blank, do you first need to remove the wax coating or can you glue directly to it? Thanks all…

Head to Tail Alignment... - 7 replies

All…Just how close to absolute perfect alignment does the head and tail need to be? I can get the horizontal adjustment dead-on but the vertical I can get any closer than 1/16-3/32. Is that the proverbial close-enough for woodworking or should I continue fine tuning until it is also dead-on? My problem is I’m more or less out of...

Bedan as a Parting Tool - 14 replies

Some time ago I purchased a very expensive thinly tapered fluted Sorby parting tool. After being wrenched from my hands three times in fifteen minutes, piercing the drywall of my garage, and having to answer awkward questions relative to safety from an inquisitive wife the tool has not left the rack since. A few moments ago, however, I recog...
