Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #1: Delta Lathe Repower

05-30-2016 12:51 PM by Pete_LJ | 0 comments »

I have started on the repower of my Delta 46-715 lathe. I am replacing the reeves drive and original motor with 1hp treadmill motor with 8 rib pulley. So far I have disassembled the reeves drive, removed original motor, drilled out original safety shield bolt holes, and tapped safety cover bolt holes 1/4-20 threads. Ihave added pics of some of the key pieces: Broken hub from one of the Reeves pulleys: Unbroken Reeves Pulley: Motor mount and swivel bar from treadmill ...

Building a Bench Rest for Wood Turning #1: Genesis of the Idea and the Basic Design

05-29-2016 05:28 PM by RichCMD | 1 comment »

I am one of those people who have trouble standing for very long. Although I love woodturning, standing at the lathe for a long period can become very painful. A back support helps some, but even with the support I can still have problems. Taking ibuprofen can extend how long I can stand, but I dislike routinely taking it as it can be hard on the stomach. I first came upon the idea of using a bench rest in an article by Ernie Conover in the May/June 2014 issue of Woodworkers Journal...

Segmented vase #5: Finished turning the outside

05-28-2016 04:06 AM by Julian | 3 comments »

It’s been a few days since I worked on this vase. Today I sanded the inside and then glued the two halves together. When the glue set, I finished turning the outside. Still need to turn (enlarge) the hole on the top. This project was turned almost entirely with my 1/2” bowl gouge. I had some trouble using this tool at first, but with practice I now enjoy how it cuts. The figured maple really looks nice.

Turning the top portion

05-22-2016 02:08 AM by Julian | 1 comment »

I started turning the top half of the vase. After the outside was rough turned, I turned the inside. The wall thickness is almost 1/2” thick. This will leave me enough wood to shape the outside after I glue the two halves together.

Segmented vase #4: Turning the bottom half

05-20-2016 03:18 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

I am turning this vase in two parts. I don’t have any hollowing tools and even if I did, it seems like it would be very difficult. The bottom half came out reasonably well. I checked the fit of the top half and it looks like I need to add one more ring. That’s all for now.

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #71: Odds and Ends around The Dungeon

05-19-2016 09:40 PM by Paul Bucalo | 0 comments »

Yesterday I took a small cutt-off of the oak I had leftover from making Laszlo’s food and water dish and made a round mallet head from it on the lathe. Then I took a strip of hard maple that had been milled from a quarter split of 30 year old firewood and made a handle from it, also on the lathe. The maple stock wasn’t square in cross-section, giving me a rectangular shaped grip. I used sandpaper to soften the edges and give the handle a more comfortable shape. Because the ...

Rediscovering Woodworking #3: More Hybrid than Power Journey

05-18-2016 12:13 AM by Tim Royal | 0 comments »

It was suggested in the comments on my first blog 2 years ago that I seek a more hand tool direction because of almost non-existent space to work. I AM a hybrid woodworker and love handtools, but have found that it is actually more and not less expensive to be completely hand tool oriented, primarily because larger projects using rough lumber are so labor and mainly space intensive as to be impractical when you are essentially forced to do most of your work outside in nice weather. What do yo...

Scoops #1: How I cut one-piece scoops

05-17-2016 12:59 AM by Jim Jakosh | 17 comments »

I wanted to do a video on making scoops but my camera is not set up for what I want to do so I’ll do it in pictures.The first thing you need to do when making a scoop is to determine the volume needed and then calculate the dimensions needed . The Volume is Pi x R squared x depth. For this one the target is a 3/4 cup scoopThe volume of a cup is 14.437 cubic inches. 3/4 cup is 10.828 Cubic inches. I want a 3”ID scoop so the formula is 10.828cubic inches= ( 3.1416×1.5...

Wood Shop Tours #1: The COOLEST SHOP I have ever seen! Michael Cooper

05-16-2016 11:51 PM by CharlieK | 1 comment »

View on YouTube I visited Michael Cooper in January of 2016. Michael is an unbelievably creative and talented guy. His body of work is so impressive that you will have to see it to believe it. He and his wife, Gayle, are as friendly, nice, and down to earth as Michael is talented. If I had to sum them up in one word it would be “Wonderful”. Michael Cooper Shop Entrance Entrance to Michael Cooper’s Shop Michael has a 2000 sq. foot shop in northern California. The setting is...
