Unique Segmented form #5: 10 layers

12-10-2016 04:17 AM by Julian | 2 comments »

This will be the 10th layer to be glued. You can clearly see the pattern that has developed and when this piece is turned, the 3rd dimension will give it a very nice look. The goal was to glue up 16 layers but I may only glue up 14 layers. This should make the finished diameter about 10”.

A journey into the workshop. #114: Dave explains how a Thien Cyclone Separator works. Sort of...

In todays video, i explain how a Thien trash can cyclone separator fuctions. These things REALLY do work far better than you can imagine. I am considering doing a fresh build to fix some annoyances I have my my 55gal version (Too heavy) and have a build on video, so if I do go that route, I will publish it and link it here for you to enjoy… A couple of changes to note. I made this video MUCH shorter than my last couple, and I am trying to improve the audio quality by using a separato...

Thank you gifts #1: Gift from LJ DoubleD

12-09-2016 09:18 PM by Jim Jakosh | 13 comments »

I was waiting for a Penn State box in the mail and instead I got this heavy box from Illinois. In it were my pick-up jig I loaned to Dave for making his Nova index wheel and a nice finishing plane and this big piece of burl all waxed and ready to turn. Dave said these were thank you gifts for the loan of the jig! Well thank you, Dave. I will put the plane to good use in my shop and I already have centers drilled in the burl and waiting for it to tell me what shape it wants to be!! ...

Building my wooden Screw #13: Thoughts and things to consider...

12-09-2016 05:28 PM by schu777 | 1 comment »

If you use the router method, you might have to put up with the fact that you might have some “burn” marks on the threads. Think of it this way – do those burn marks affect how the screw works/operates? NOPE – not one bit. It might be possible getting a crank on the end of the screw to help you keep the dowel/screw advancing and avoid the burn marks. It’s up to you, for me, I can live with it – somewhat. The nut – in a previous post I mentioned the guide nut wasn’t very clean when I ran...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1808: Letting Go of a Friend

12-09-2016 03:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am writing this post today because I realize that many of my friends who read regularly are not on my Facebook page. I received a couple of emails from people wondering how things went with my kitty Pancakes yesterday.I thought it was best to write it here. Things did not go well. My dear, sweet boy has crossed what pet lovers call "The Rainbow Bridge".  He is no longer with me. I am deeply saddened and in shock. Just a week ago we took him to the vet for a 'rou...

Building my wooden Screw #12: Finally, a wood SCREW!!

12-09-2016 02:48 PM by schu777 | 2 comments »

Now the dowel I used to make the wood screw was not the prettiest – as it had some knots and almost some bark within it – I figured most likely I would be using it for a testing and not an actual screw for the bench. I took the guild block/nut with the router bolted on top, clamped it to my current bench (hollow core door) and got ready to do my first test. I turned on the router, put my dowel in and started away. NOTE: I had about 3”-4” from my old dowel to use for ...

Building my wooden Screw #11: Creating the guide nut...

12-09-2016 02:18 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

I decided that I didn’t need to re-create the tap guide, as the one I had from version 2 sould work just fine. Here you can see the tap inserted into the soon-to-be guide nut. However, prior to this, I found my hole wasn’t quite 90 degrees, so I put that to the side and created a new blank for a nut. I took my burnisher for scraper, loaded that up in the drill press and checked to see if the table is set right – it wasn’t so I spent the next 15-20 minutes looking for...

first time Grandsons in the workshop #1: more humor and old time tools and safety

12-09-2016 01:43 PM by oldguy2 | 2 comments »

I changed the profile photo. And the nickname ..oldguy2…is in reference to my good friend who also owned a Shopsmith and we went to 2 classes at the Factory in Dayton. Since I moved I don’t get to see him as much and poor fellow he moved to a condo and had to sell a 520 and accessories. Someone got a great buy, Not even 10 years old.I think I look more like my father in the photo, I am 64. Oooch. wisdom hairs the lady cutter calls them. BS.I think the nickname is right. O...
