My lathe journeys. #36: ... Dang! That was a hard "catch" !

08-30-2015 12:23 AM by JoeinGa | 10 comments »

So I’m turning my latest bowl. It’ll be the biggest one yet that I’ve done. Everything is going along fairly well and I can only guess ( in hindsight ) that I must have shifted my weight and leaned in a bit too much, because all of a sudden … BANG! The tool catches and next thing I know I’m holding only HALF of the tool! YIKES! Made me jump when it happened. .Looking at the pix you can see that my glue joint actually held, it was the walnut that snapped. .......

First attempt at making a carbide tipped lathe tool

08-11-2015 05:08 PM by casecx700 | 2 comments »

This is my first attempt at making a carbide tipped lathe tool, the handle is made of oak and ash cut and glued at a 45 degree angle and doweled for added strength. The metal part that holds the cutter is made of a piece of .5 inch round rod that I purchased from home depot and tapped a #8 32TPI thread into to accommodate the easy wood tool cutter. Currently I am waiting on the epoxy to set up so I can finish it up tomorrow hopefully. I am planning on finishing with Boiled linseed oil.

Clearcut Chisels Restoration

08-04-2015 01:32 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

Well it’s official I am hooked… restoring old tools is my new obsession. This time I found some old chisels, Clearcut brand, ever heard of it? Me either. I also couldn’t find much information on the brand online, I did find one post that mentioned they are from Montgomery Ward but I can’t be sure of that. No matter the steel feels good. Guess we will see if it holds an edge. I also shot a video of the restoration which can be viewed here.View on YouTube As you can ...

This is No Bull!

07-31-2015 04:33 PM by BrentH | 6 comments »

No Bull! —My neighbor was pretty impressed when I told him I’d entered a bowl in the County Fair—until he realized it wasn’t spelled “B-U-L-L”. Still, I did all right. I think the prize money is $5. I’ve always told my wife that someday my woodworking would pay off! (Original details of this project were posted on 7/22/15.)

Building Big Blue, a Home Made Wood Lathe

07-29-2015 02:34 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

Some of y’all may remember the post a few years ago about the wood lathe I built. I’ve been meaning to write about the “how & why” of this project for some time and I finally got around to it! I talk about the motivation to build my own lathe, the expenses, design process, & of course building the lathe in addition to other things. Per the norm, the post can be found on my blog. I hope you enjoy the read!

Shop Update #6: New Rikon 70-100 Mini Lathe

07-26-2015 12:06 AM by Chris McDowell | 7 comments »

I recently did a little belated spring cleaning in the shop. My wife helped me pull out everything and sweep and rearrange. The main reason we did all this is because I recently bought a new lathe and needed to put it somewhere. My father-in-law had an old bench in his basement which I took and cut down to size so that the lathe would be at the proper height. The lathe is a Rikon 70-100 Mini Lathe. I basically do a product tour in the video, so check it out if you want to know more ab...
