Woodturning Projects #1: Woodturning Handle | An Alternative Approach

09-02-2016 03:15 PM by Scott Seganti | 0 comments »

A great way to save a few dollars on your next turning tool purchase is to buy your tools un-handled and make your own. I came up with a design that works really well. It includes set screws which allow you to remove the tool from the handle if needed. https://youtu.be/jpzoXaAUR_o

Woodturning #1: David Marks Turns a 400 Pound Hollow Vessel!

08-04-2016 08:42 PM by CharlieK | 7 comments »

View on YouTube I met with David Marks while he was still in the early stages of his greatest woodturning project (yet!). He showed my the specialized lathe tools he uses for very large hollow vessel turnings and some of his woodturning tricks! He also explained his amazing methods for storing, drying and stabilizing wood for his wood turning projects. The scale of this woodturning project is amazing! The blank for this turning project weighed 400 pounds! Even the tools he use...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #3: Part 3 - Fitting Belt and Determining Linear Location of Driven Pulley

06-13-2016 02:36 PM by Pete_LJ | 3 comments »

06132016 It was a busy weekend and I did not get a lot done on this project. But I did make some progress. I was able to fit the motor to the swivel shaft and box while mounted to the lathe. I need to fix the linear position left to right for the hub and driven pulley. I also need to get the tensioner fabricated and adjusted. I have some pics for you with the motor and shaft in rough position and also the driven pulley/hub. The bungee cord (pictured below) is just being used tempora...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #2: Fitting the Driven Pulley and Fabbing Support for Motor and Swivel Bar

06-06-2016 07:15 PM by Pete_LJ | 1 comment »

06062016 I got the rough version of the box built and attached to the back of the lathe. In addition, I decided to go with the first alternative on mounting the driven pulley (namely, Maska Pulley Hub with three fasteners to be attached through holes that need to be drilled accurately in pulley). I created two wooden plugs using two hole saws: i.) 1 7/8”, and ii.) 1 1/8”. Neither hole saw created the perfect size plug. So I wrapped electrical tape around the 1 7/8” plug (actually 1.579” fo...

Woodworking Interviews #1: Pen Blank Perfectionist - Zac Higgins Interview

06-01-2016 01:19 PM by CharlieK | 1 comment »

View on YouTube We moved around a lot when I was a kid. Born in Chicago, and lived in Missouri, Reno, Denver, Wisconsin, and Minneapolis. Within those locations we sometimes moved between multiple addresses. I always say that I grew up in Reno, Nevada because that is where I spent the majority of my life before I turned 18 years old. We left Reno when I was 17 and I visited there again just this past January. I only tell you this to because it was during this trip to Reno when I met Z...

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 ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #60: The Past Four Months

01-29-2016 06:55 PM by Paul Bucalo | 5 comments »

Last autumn we decided to remodel the kitchen. One failed major appliance started the notion. It was a cascading effect and the main reason behind all the extra work and time consumed. We won’t do that again. At any rate, I have been busy acquiring new tools and accessories, most of them coming to me because of an unexpected windfall around the holidays. I’m hoping to express this in a way that doesn’t come across as gloating, bragging or ego-tripping. Right now, I can’...
