Oneway spindle steady

Oneway spindle steady

1620 days ago by hairy | 7 comments »

When you need one, you might as well get one. This is a real good one. I unpacked it, assembled onto a spindle I was working on, then read the directions. I had it right, it does just what I expected without any troubles. It holds it steady when turning,and any further shaping I did after the turning. No money wasted on this one. The big mistake I made was just getting the spindle steady, they make a bowl steady that you can attach the spindle jaws to. I don’t think I can go the other ...

Now you guys and gals know me, I am a bang for the buck kind of guy, and in order to separate my cheap fingers from those bucks, your product or service better offer some real tangible additional bang… Enter the OneWay Manufacturing Wolverine jig. I initially got this because I had no idea that PSI had a cheaper clone, and after a couple of frustrating plywood copies later, I opted for the steel of the Wolverine to avoid the flexing that was messing up my angles. To call the Wolve...

Oneway Wheel Balancing System

Oneway Wheel Balancing System

I bought this Oneway Wheel Balancing System from Craft Supplies, it cost 62.99. I do a lot of wood turning tool sharpening. I have an inexpensive 2 speed grinder I bought from Woodcraft and it rocked, rattled and rolled, that’s for sure!! I put this on this afternoon, and you would think I have a Baldor grinder with special balanced wheels. What a difference this has made. I recommend this grinder attachment.

but I have to sing the praises of the Oneway Multi Gauge. I bought a Jet JJ-6CSX about a year ago off craigslist. I brought it home, and did a complete disassembly/cleaning/waxing. Everything went well until I tried to set blades and get this thing to cut. A lot of good LJ’s tried to help me last year and I thought I was ok. I tried it again after winter hibernation and my jointer cut was significantly out of straight. I had tried every method I could find on das Internets to no a...

I have endured years of having a completely unbalanced grinder to sharpen my turning tools. I tried truing the wheel on the front edge and side, putting shims to get rid of the wobble, and adjusting the bushings so the wheel sits dead center. Every attempt to eliminate vibration have failed. I spent countless hours trying to prevent the grinder from literally walking off the table and taking every tool with it while it vibrated. The vibrations were so loud against the table that I was for...

Excellent grinder accessory

Excellent grinder accessory

I got a cheapo 6” bench grinder from Harbor Freight at the same time that I bought my lathe to sharpen my turning tools. It ran just fine with the 2 wheels it came with, but vibrated all over the table with the Norton aluminum oxide wheel that I ordered from Lee Valley. I spent a lot of time messing with the adapter bushings that it came with, trying to get the wheel to run true, but with no luck. Enter the Oneway Balancing System, also purchased from Lee Valley. At first I didn̵...

A little rough around the edges but a great tool

A little rough around the edges but a great tool

I must start this of by saying that I really would like to give this 4.5 stars but that’s not available here. I set this up on my old grinder and this week I bought a new Rikon grinder from Woodcraft so I mounted that to my base. It does take some time to set these bases up but it’s not hard at all. The two tool rests are made from heavy welded steel and the two bases are an extruded aluminum and is nothing if not stout. The only issue that I had with it is the flat grinding rest,...

Oneway Talon Chuck

Oneway Talon Chuck

261 days ago by ic3ss | 1 comment »

I bought a used Jet 1236 lathe about a year ago, my first lathe and my first time turning since high school. I watched all the youtube videos I could find and I saw quickly that the way I did it in high school with faceplates is a drag compared to using a scroll chuck, so I saved some money and last month I took the plunge. I chose Oneway over Nova and the others for one simple reason: the shape of the jaws. On the Nova, the quarter round shape didn’t account for different diameter s...
