I love walnut - 14 replies
A few months back , a friend gave me 3 big firewood size pieces of walnut. It wasn’t in real good shape, a lot of rot, but I did get some usable lathe stock. A few days ago he asked if I wanted more. That’s like asking a drowning man if he wants a life jacket. His father has a large walnut tree that they are taking down. These ...

Am I the only one? - 17 replies
I am a fan of the NFL. I don’t paint my face or get stupid about it, but I do enjoy a football game. It is the only sport I pay any attention to. This season it’s all about Brett Favre. Every time I watch any show about the NFL, about half is about Favre and the remainder is about the rest of the league. It’s been like that ...

Lathe indexing chart needed - 6 replies
I’ve googled it, binged it too. I haven’t had any good results. Maybe it’s called something else? I’m looking for a chart for a 48 position indexing wheel. What I want is a chart that shows me which positions to use if I want to divide a turning into equal parts. Imagine a clock face, with 48 hours, instead of 12....

Mocking bird blues - 8 replies
This might be normal, but it’s odd to me. I have a mockingbird near my house, and he sings at all hours. I was up at 3:30 Am today, and he was chirping his head off. I hear him every night when I get home from work at 12:30 AM. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s cool. All is dead quiet, except for him. Not even an occasional ...
