I like it too Eddie, and I usually add a sprinkle of various spices which makes it taste even better.

Morning all.

Randy, I suggest starting with the HF set. Get the cheapest you can.
If you start out like me, you’re going to grind half the tool away before you start to get a hand at sharpening them correctly anyway. So, because of that, the harbour freight tools an advantage. First, they’re thinner so there isn’t quite so much material to take away to regrind your bevel, which again if you mess up like me, you will be doing. Also, they’re cheaper so you don’t feel so bad about wasting them away.
After you get better at sharpening (I’m still learning) you can move up to some better tools. Then you still have some of the HF tools left to regrind to scrapers and such.

Nice shop photos Rex. I’m glad you’re making progress.

Dave, there is no baby anouncement, and no pissed off pregnant girl knocking on my door this morning, so I guess you didn’t take my advice last night.

Eddie back from breakfast yet? I take my breakfast at the computer, coffee and cigarettes.

Marty, hello. Bye.

Rich, I watched on other videos about how to get the wood prepared. I have sliced it lengthwise. Now I just need to figure out a way to take that other side off flat without ruining my bandaw blades until I can get a proper blade for green wood. Or I need to find some dry wood to play with until then.
The blades I have right now (both are thin with hardly any tooth set) would get pinched and either dull or throw if I try to go through much green wood with them.

As for preparing the wood Rich, I had a few ideas.
I could run it through my planer over and over. That would dull the planer blades. I could sharpen them though easily. Also, my concern there is bark coming out the end of the planer like shrapnel.
My other idea was to grab a hand plane and get busy COUGH get one of my boys busy, flattening one side of it. I don’t know how that would go either.

My last option, and I was going to ask someone about this one.
If I have the one side flat from the chain saw, how hard would it be to simply turn the other side flat?

Randy – DO NOT GET THE HF GOUGES!!! I bought them. They are CRAP! When I tried to sharpen them they ground away WAY TOO FAST! And did not stay sharp at all!

As a recent newbee to turning I can tell you that I use a 1/2” gauge, a 3/4” guage, a skew guage and a paring. I have some of the others, but these I use almost everytime I turn.

If you built Stumpy’s WS3000 work station you can add what I did for sharpening your gauges. Most of your basic gauges are sharpened at 45-degrees. So I cut a piece of 2×4 at a 45-degree angle (about 6” long overall). I then cut a slight groove donw the middle of the 45-degree cut. Then I mounted the 2×4 piece to a small piece of 1/4” ply that I clamp to the top of my sork station. I then hold the gauge I am sharpening in the groove and rotate it to sharpen it. Don’t forget to run some 320 grit inside the guage to get rid of the burr, just like you would for a chisel of plane iron.

Rob, did you get the $20 set of lathe chisels or the ~$40 dollar ones? The cheap ones are not HSS and aren’t suitable for turning with really. I have the more expensive ones and they work just fine. They are definitely lower quality than my Benjamin’s Best or Hurricane tools, but not hugely so.

Check out this ebay seller. I have their spindle gouge set, bowl gouge set and square edge scraper and really like them. Nice steel and good long handles.

All this talk about Breakfast, and I have a Waffle house just a few blocks away. Been a LONG time since I have even been to one.

Let’s see:

Shred some spuds really fine, throw into oilly skillet
1 pound of ground sausage
1 small can of sliced Mushrooms
1 small onion, diced up
1 green peper, diced up
Scramble in about six eggs in to the above mess. allow to fry for a while.

Mix up some Flapjack mix in a bowl, add a handfull of brown sugar, and a large helping of Cinnamom to it. Warm up griddle, make a dozen or some BS & C flapjakes.

Seperate scrambled eggs, if needed, can be also fried up on the griddle.

Sounds like a decent Breakfast….

Talking to yourself again Marty?
Breakfast was oatmeal, lunch is nada, supper is the rest of the oatmeal I left this morning.
Ok, so where is Ted and Mike?

Working at the shop on the same old stuff, but I have visions of making a project ….... sometime in the near future …..... hey not that near.
I’m finding and moving lumber and trying to get it stacked in order. I am really shagged out, I hope making a project is not as hard as this.

Could not afford lunch today as Rich’s contribution was only 5 cents. I did ask about meals on wheels but the lady said “give us your wheels and we’ll give you a meal…..alas, no gas.

Sandra called me and asked if I wanted her to cook something for me to eat. I let her know I was not THAT desperately hungry right now.
She said she could open a can of chicken noodles soup, well, all those years of training must have paid off then. What the cluck, isn’t there any other type of soup?
“Well there is” she said, “but the can does not have a ring pull, so you’ll have to open it with the can opener”.

I take it all back.

Maybe you should get a second job….
So, Rex can have another kind/can of soup!!!

Rex,
You have to keep their skills sharp, otherwise all that training is forgotten!!!

Hey Randy. I just saw a recall notice on your lathe. They say the motor gets hot and the whole lathe melts. Touching it can result in fatal electric shock. The notice says to dispose of the lathe immediately. If you send in the live center Jet will mail you a certificate for 10% off your next purchase over $5,000, some exclusions apply.

Sorry dude…
