Made a trip to Grizzly

02-16-2015 01:00 AM by CyF | 9 comments »

So I went down to Springfield MO on Feb 14th to the Grizzly Showroom. Managed not to spend all of my money but sure put a dent in the bank account, but I think it worth it.The man reason for heading there was to pick up m new lathe, I didn’t want to wait for the new G0766 since it has now been pushed out to May 26th. So I purchased the G0733. I gotta say I’m impressed with it overall so far but haven’t done a lot with it yet. Give me a couple weeks and I will post a review o...

What Can You Tell Me About This Lathe?

02-14-2015 10:46 PM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

This is just a question: Does anyone have one of these lathes and can you tell me any of its pros/cons? The link to the website which sells this lathe is found here The same lathe using the same exact photo is also offered on Amazon and eBay for about the same price. Whenever I see something so obscure that the maker seems hidden, I gotta ask, has anyone ever heard of it or known about it. Seems odd that it’s always the same photo. Thanks for the read and for any comments.

Winter is Bowl Roughing Season....!! (work in progress)

02-05-2015 02:21 AM by TannerTurnings | 5 comments »

Well, it’s Winter here in the UK, and a good time to source some green timber & rough turn some bowls.I’m quite lucky in that I have a few friends who work cutting trees, so getting freshly cut timber isn’t much of a problem, and getting timber that has been cut in the Winter months is probably best if you want to turn natural edge bowls, but is also quicker drying as the sap content is less. Also, the temperature is much lower so that the timber doesn’t dry out s...

Peterbilt truck #1: Wheels

02-03-2015 04:36 PM by Dutchy | 4 comments »

I could have bought the wheels for my new T and J project, but decided to make my own. I prefer wheels from oak (a bought wheel is from beech) because ebonizing and I also I prefer a rim that is separate from the tire. Her you can see how I did it: First wood selected and signed wheels:Bandsaw work:Drilling a hole 35 mm, 11 mm deep: Turning the wheels a little oversized:Made a hole 8mm for the axle pegs: Putting about 10 wheels on a rod for final diameter turning;Than made with an a...

Making a Vacuum Adapter for Wood Lathe

01-16-2015 08:04 PM by woodshopmike | 2 comments »

I was wanting to use a vacuum chuck on my lathe so first thing I needed was a way to get vacuum to the spindle. Lucky for me, or not so lucky, my spindle has a hole cross drilled into it! This made my project a bit more involved, but still successful. I used a threaded lamp rod to supply vacuum through the spindle along with a couple of ball bearings, pipe fittings, and two spindle adapters I turned. All the meat and potatoes is in my post, Make a Vacuum Adapter For Your Lathe. I...
