  1. Osage Orange Rose and Russian Spindle

    These are 11 1/2 inch spindles made of Osage Orange. Both spindles are Grippingyarn signature designs which have been successfully marketed and sold to spindlers all over the globe. Osage Orange wood took me a while to understand. Like Cherry, it can bruise and leave rings or marks if scraped...
  2. 3rd CO (completed object) SRS

    here is the Latest, my 3rd Completed Object. The skirt is more refined, and the neck is more balanced. I did a few test flicks, and it can almost spin itself. Just keeps going and going. Attached some of my shetland and did a few test spins, and OMG it just keeps going, it is like the ever...
  3. Bocote Russian Spindle (Supported Spindle for spinning yarn)

    Rockler was having a sale on 1×1x12 Bocote blanks for $1! So I bought one. In fact, other than purchasing the wood for my lathe stand, this was my first wood purchase related to turning. Everything else had been salvaged. Russian spindles are unique in the YARN MAKING SPINDLE world in that they...
  4. Closer to Traditional Russian Spindle

    I'm getting closer. The traditional Russian spindle has a pointier whorl (the bottom bit) shaped like an arrow. And the whole spindle should probably be even more slender. Also, the traditional Russian woods are lighter… like birch. This particular spindle spins like a dream… fast, true, and...
  5. Walnut Russian Spindle

    This is my first experience working walnut. It was really clean and easy to cut. However, it wasn't as dense and sturdy as Bocote. Towards the end of the turning, the shaft started to bow a bit which caused wobble. This made finishing a pain in the bum. Also… I have not perfected making the...
  6. Jigs & Fixtures
    Hey all, Does anyone have any ideas on using a belt sander in place of a drum sander for creating strips for bent lamination. I have a 3 inch wide belt sander so I will be liminited in width. If anyone has any ideas for good jigs or some other ideas that would be great. Or if you have any...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have an induction motor that I'd like to service, but I do not know the type/weight oil to use in this motor. The motor is an older Delco motor, currently set up for use as a grinder. A pic of the motor from the net… I'd also like to know if there are better uses for this motor. Since I have...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a Rikon 10-325 and I must admit that so far it has been a pretty good machine. I use it infrequently, but whn I do I am cutting 12" logs, which seems to be taking its toll. When I mount my new blade and tension it, the wheel is incredibly hard to turn. Not impossible, but it seems like it...
