Moravian Workbench #4: Turning the vise screw

09-12-2019 11:52 AM by Tom | 2 comments »

Now that the vise is operational, I wanted to turn a more pleasing shape on the vise hub. The challenge is locating the turning centers for the lathe. On the screw end, there were marks that appeared to be centered, so I could use that for the drive center. However, on the hub side, it was just a smooth flat surface. I used a simple method to locate a good center. I set the hub end on a piece of plywood and nailed four brackets around the hub to restrain it from moving laterally. ...

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #32: My new favorite turning project

08-01-2019 04:52 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

This is the second project I have made from a 8/4 remnant, where I cut the piece in half and then glued the resulting pieces together. Both times, there was reasonable grain match so the resulting blank did not look obviously like it glued up from narrower pieces. This started as a piece of white oak from the scrap bins at Forest Products in Maplewood, MN (always a good place to get a cheap haul of offcuts from their cabinet shop operation). I am really happy with the rolled rim and the overa...

Skateboard ring process breakdown

07-12-2019 07:49 PM by kiwilynne | 4 comments »

A quick breakdown for Jim Jakosh and everyone else interested in how I make a skateboard ring I cut a 3×3 cm blank from the skateboard using the deck’s original thickness. I then use the scroll saw to cut off the corners and reduce some of the extra wood. I put the blank on the lathe and get it down to a bit thicker than what the final ring will be, to account for additional finishing sanding. Make sure your chisels are sharp, because if it catches it can take a go...

Curiosity made me do it #2: Used Power Tool pricing (AKA Is this tool a good deal?)

05-24-2019 12:43 AM by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

There are hundreds of threads with folks asking about used tool pricing. Getting tired of posting same information over and over in threads, so decided to list all here:What is Great price on used tool?What is Good price on used tool?What is Fair price on a used tool? All these are hard to answer. Let’s discuss some areas that impact tool pricing. Condition:Condition is important. Every tool is unique in the use/abuse, maintenance, and/or refurbishment; that defines the cond...

Curiosity made me do it #1: Grizzly Paint Colors

03-25-2019 02:00 AM by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

Was curious if I could find a Grizzly touch up paint color that would match a Geetech jointer I own. Since OWWm.org site does catalog information on non-US made wood working tools, touch up colors can be hard to find for off brand, now antique Taiwan made wood working tools. Ended up digging out this paint color summary in Grizzly parts catalog that I thought might be nice to share: Grizzly PPAINT-1 – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023SGrizzly PPAINT-1A – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023S AE...

My Lathe #1: Problems with Securing Stock

03-20-2019 12:41 AM by Jerome | 14 comments »

Hello all and thanks for reading! I am having repeated issues with securing a 3”×3” 36” peice of cherry to my lathe. Well it’s about 33 inches now..lol. I’ve tried driving screws deep into the end grain. I am using a faceplate with 4 screws. My tailstock has a deep cup, but still it is walking out the peice. Why is this happening? Is the tailstock too loose? It has still walked out with the quill all the way into the peice…even then I let it press al...

Experimental segmented turning

03-17-2019 02:28 PM by stefang | 27 comments »

I turned some narrow disk shaped weed vases from solid birch quite a few years ago. Early last year I decided to do some segmented turning again after a lapse of a few years and I thought it might be fun to try a segmented version of those disk shaped vases I had made before, but only out of pine since this wasn’t a keeper, and no finish was applied. I didn’t have my wedgie sled built yet to cut the segments on the my table saw so I had to use my band saw instead with an improv...

Treadle Lathe #13: Tailstock

02-13-2019 12:53 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

The tailstock is pretty simple. It is made from 3 inches thick of laminated oak. It is attached to the frame by a wedged tenon and slides along the uprights to adjust to the length of the turning project. The wedge is made of laminated cherry. The live center rests in a #2MT. I used calipers to get the dimensions of the MT and used my brace and bit and carving chisels to create the pocket for the MT to rest. I mounted up a 4×4 scrap piece of cedar at the end of the video and it was reall...
