Wegner inspired dining chair #1: Getting inspired & first test

2 hours ago by kaerlighedsbamsen | 2 comments »

I have always admired wegners furniture. Especially his chairs. They are so “final” designs. Nothing to improve, nothing to remove. Just right. For a long time a have known that one day i wanted to build something in his style. But as simple they look his furniture is nothing but simple to make. And i felt that i needed a certain level of skill to give it a try. The past two years i have built a lot of projects and tried to raise the difficult level a little each time.Last week...

Why I Buy Used Power Tools

16 hours ago by TheWoodenOyster | 0 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...

Tip: Directing Shavings and Dust

3 days ago by DeLayne Peck | 7 comments »

I have enjoyed lathe work for years. And, for some reason, getting completely covered with saw dust was a woodworking badge of honor. Not to mention the look of horror on my wife’s face when I tried to get back into the house. Then, I ruined the whole gig:. I aimed a small fan on a low setting at my lathe project. Shavings and dust are blown down range away from me, pile up neatly, and are easily vacuumed up. The same dumb trick probably works with other messy operations &#...

found wood

24 days ago by NaptownWood | 0 comments »

Why is it that when I see a tree being cut down, and I stop for a piece or two or three to turn on the lathe, when I get into a really nice, drier, figured interesting piece, I only grabbed one chunk, and when its wet as can be, boring, stinky, and hard to make viable, I have taken a half truckload?

Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe #5: Banjo tune-up

31 days ago by Rick M. | 4 comments »

King Seeley never bothered to clean up the parts after casting, that was left to future owners and most of them didn’t. My lathe was around for 54 years and most surfaces were rough as a cob when I brought it home. Here I’m cleaning up the banjo.

Collet chuck comparison with good news for Shopsmith owners.

39 days ago by horologist | 0 comments »

Collets or collet chucks are an excellent way to hold small pieces and with good tools the work can be removed from the collet and reinstalled with little loss of concentricity. The split wire chuck was developed by US watch manufactures in the mid-19th century and is quite accurate but requires the work piece to fit the collet very closely. If the object to be turned is of a larger diameter or more than a few thousands smaller than the collet ID then the collet can be damaged and accuracy...
