I have noticed that there is a increased demand for beeswax finishes so I wanted to share my experience and knowledge with you. This video will show you how to make your own beeswax (ratios that I use) and hopefully point you in a right direction. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEYI6hkuOf0 It is my first video so the quality isn’t the best, but I do hope it will help. Comments and critiques are welcome Cheers

Small Brass & Wood Marking Gauge

07-16-2013 11:26 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

This does not qualify as woodworking, so I’ve placed it here. I don’t have a lot of use for a marking gauge, so I didn’t want to splurge on a manufactured one. I decided to try making a small marking gauge that would have brass elements. I like the look of brass and I’m a cheapskate to boot. I found a plumbing fitting which I felt would work. It was a 3/4 in. x 1/2 in. male adapter MPT x barb. I cut the theads off the 3/4 end with a hack saw and then ground off the re...

Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe #3: Measuring lathe speed with an ink jet printer and fluorescent light

04-21-2013 11:15 PM by Rick M. | 8 comments »

After switching my lathe to a variable speed DC motor I had no way of knowing it’s range so rather than buying a digital tachometer for a one off measurement I used some old tech… a homemade strobe tachometer. A google image search yielded a variety of discs designed for measuring speeds from 60 rpm up to 7200 rpm. After printing out 4 papers discs I found my lathe is capable of 240 rpm up to an estimated 2,800 rpm (estimated because this method jumps from 2,400 to 3,600 rpm). I d...
