  • Under the "woodworking" section of the mags title

    As I mentioned a few weeks age. I recently purchased a mini lathe. It has been over 45 years since I got to work with one. I am really surprised that skills I picked up in high school are still there. Really makes me feel good that I can remember things from the "olden days".
    Anyway, I have been making pens this week. I made these today.
    They are oak, mesquite, mulberry, mesquite, black walnut and mesquite again.

        I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
        Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

        If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

        Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
