Largest Circular Saw?

09-13-2014 02:21 AM by socrbent | 6 comments »

While watching Redwood Kings I saw them using a huge circular saw with a 32 clearly on blade. Could that be 32”? Definitely would take two hands. Amazing.This 16” Makita was the largest I found on Google with a quick search

Totally NEW project....REVEILED!

09-11-2014 10:07 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

This project is what I call “THE PROPOSAL EGG” It’s a simple idea that, until last night I had never heard of anyone else ever making. It’s a SPINDLE TURNING project that involves making a hollowed out “EGG”, that becomes a “lidded box” (eventually the base part will have a small round “ring cushion” once my friend has made some or me, as round ring cushions just don’t seem to be available to buy in the UK) that a ring can be...

Unstable Lathe speed? Try this BEFORE spending on a new motor or control unit!!

09-05-2014 06:19 PM by TannerTurnings | 4 comments »

A quick bit of info for anyone using an AXMINSTER awvsl Lathe (or similar)Today, my Lathe suddenly started to speed up and slow down, somewhat similar to the old Bus engines of the 1950s era, making turning almost impossible. Also, as it would speed up, there was a flash coming from the motor brushes. I guess now that some people are thinking that either my Motor was faulty, or that my variable speed control unit had a fault, and would probably need replacing…right? The way to fix this ...

How Dry is your wood turning? #1: Using a remote Hygrometer

09-03-2014 02:49 PM by Paul | 1 comment »

A common technique when turning wood is to turn a green piece of wood, then store it in a brown paper bag until it is dry. The paper bag lets the wood dry slowly and uniformly, this reduces cracking and splitting. The problems are: How long to store it? When is it dry? You cannot see it in the bag and commonly available moisture gauges only measure the surface of the wood. I’m not sure how unique this is but I’ve found that by including a remote humidity sensor in the paper bag...

A Domino Ooopppsss....

08-30-2014 03:08 PM by Huckleberry | 1 comment »

Here is where those seasoned veterans of the Festool Domino can point and laugh at some rookie mistakes. I am making a new cabinet to house my air compressor because the dawgone thing is soooo loud. So I thought it would be a great project to put my new Domino through some paces. As I was trying to understand some things on this machine I plunged into the face of some scrap 3/4” plywood I would be using to make the carcass. Well I created a through Domino, so back to the instruction...

Wow! Has it really been that long??? Kind of off topic well maybe...

08-23-2014 01:20 AM by Huckleberry | 2 comments »

I was perusing Lumberjocks when I logged in and noticed it had been over 400 days since I posted anything. So what have I been up to you ask? Work, school, work, family, homework and tests… I graduated high school in 1995 (some will laugh others will be like hey youngster!) and one thing I have determined is I hated algebra then and I sure in the hell hate it now… Outside of that I have muddled in woodworking here and there and nothing real serious. That was until Festool had...
