Brad, this topic is dedicated to you, Buddy. Since you called my invention a contraption, and then likened my definition of Contraption to an IBM an acronym, “goldberg” to it in another post, I’ve racked my brain, what’s of it, to finding an acronym for the word, CONTRAPTION. I spent all day today working on it. At 5 pm, ...

AZ Woody's wood - 2 replies

I just visited AZ Woody’s place Sunday. The visit was made because over the last couple years, I’ve threatened myself with going out there just because. After he invited me and the LJ locals for a gathering on Saturday, I accepted right away, then realized I had another engagement. So, I drove out there Sunday instead. He had a vi...

Just a verification needed. I need to drill 2 holes to match up on my PM lathe. I can’t get up under the ways to find my centers, but can get the distance from outside to outside of each Allen bolt head. The distance is 4”, the bolt head is .550”. If I subtract the size of one bolt head from the 4”, leaving 3.45” on...

Jerry's 1460 Delta Milwaukee lathe - 7 replies

Here are a few pictures of my retired lathe. It’s a year younger than me. Delta Milwaukee 1460 12×36’ lathe, manufactured in 1947, and sold to Tucson Unified School District. I got it in 2010 from a local that had gotten it through a school auction, but didn’t pursue setting it up. The frame it sits on was originally mad...

Distracted - 15 replies

A couple days ago, I was turning a piece of Olive branch for no other reason to get in some turning. I was wearing a long sleeve shirt. I decided to pull the sleeve up to mu elbow to keep wood shavings from getting into the inside the sleeve. Midway through the turning, I noticed someone coming up to my shop, but continued turning. It was my wi...

Powermatic lathe 3520 A & B models? - 1 reply

I have to ask this question as PowerMatic Service didn’t have a definite answer for me. My question is this. What is the TRUE swing of these lathes? Mine, “A” model, measures right at 20 1/2”. The “B” model at the local Tucson Woodcraft store also measures in at that same dimension. I just called Powermatic se...

Ivory Turning - 2 replies

I found this link on another site I visit. I wasn’t too thrilled when I saw the length of the video, but when I started it, I couldn’t stop watching until it was over. Bill Jones is the turner, but he’s been gone since 2011. His tools arew interesting, especially the drive on his lathe.

A wood gloat - 18 replies

This picture shows one load of 3 I got from a road widening project along West Ajo Road near the western outskirts of Tucson. Besides loosing a trailer tire, it was still well worth it. The largest piece in the picture is a Palo Verde crotch blank 20×24 of the trunk. This load netted me 6 pieces of PV that you can’t see as the Mes...

Some Mesquite Bowls - 8 replies

Here are 3 mesquite bowls averaging 14” OD and ranging from 3 1/2” to 4 3/4’ tall. Wall thickness on all is 3/8”. I thought I’d throw in this picture of the hickory cabinet with Saguaro rib doors because of the bowls on the top. This is actually the first evidence of me even knowing how to build a cabinet…...
