Questions about converting a lathe over to variable speed - 6 replies

I have a delta 46-715 with the revees drive for variable speed. Needless to say the Revees system is completely shot and needs replaced. I cant seem to find a replacement and I have read that one from grizzly may work. The more I think about this the more I am interested in trying to convert this to electronic variable speed.

Eco Gate - Green Gate Dust collection? - 1 reply

Does anyone here use the eco gate dust collection for small home shops? I am setting up mine and thinking about using this system. I know it pricey but seems like it could be worth the extra money as I have a tendency to be lazy and would see myself saying “one little cut no need to turn on the collector”. How does it work for you g...

Another Dust collection question - 19 replies

I guess its time to take back my shop from the dust. I have acquired some bigger tools through the years and dragging around my HF dust collector is not cutting it anymore. I am in the market for a collector. I know that I want something in the 2-3 hp range with a cyclone. I am looking at the JDS 2hp, the Laguna 3hp and several of the Grizzlys...

Runner help with rocking chair - 1 reply

I built my first rocking chair and it came out really nice. My only thing is when I rock in it on hardwoods it has a few very minor flat/uneven spots maybe. It could be me being very critical of my work as nobody else seems to notice. Will they go away with use or is there other tricks for smoothing the rock out? I have read about felt use on b...

Rockers for chair question - 4 replies

I am getting ready to build a jig to laminate rockers for some rocking chairs I plan to build. My question is for those who have done this. Did you do the rocker glue ups individually or glue one wide strip and split it in half with the table saw? I was seeing advantages to both in my mind. If you do these individually did they come out the sa...

Question on Reeves drive for Delta Lathe - 5 replies

Ok. I picked up a Delta 46-715 lathe really cheap. I have read there have been some issues with these lathes but figured it was cheap enough with a little TLC it could get me maybe turning. I don’t imagine myself being a big wood turner and if I could get this cleaned up to work for little project here or there that would be great. I do ...

Help with a pine rocking chair? - 6 replies

The pine is 120 plus years old and after cleaning it up a bit I think I have some that’s useable. I know that making a rocking chair out of pine vs. hardwood will have ...

Adding moisture to old pine? - 4 replies

I have recovered some pine lumber from a house I would say is at least 110 years old. I think it will be useable for some furniture that I want to build. I would like to add some moisture back into the wood as it is very very dry. Some of it has began to split in places. Could I do this with just putting it in the steam box for several hours (...

Titebond wood filler as grain filler? - 12 replies

So I am building a arts and crafts table out of white oak. While playing around with finish options today on some scraps I decided to use Titebond wood filler over a piece, sanded it smooth and stained it. I was surprised by the look. I didn’t see any adverse effect on the stain I was using and it provided a much smoother finish. Any ...
