  • 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.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

    Looks really good Stephen...you picked it up right where you left off. Working a lathe is something I have not tired as yet....to many other tools to use I guess.

        A family friends father passed away and he was an avid bird carver. So my nephew is helping the family sell some of his tools. I bought this air cleaner and will b uy most of his carving knives and burrs. And no that is not my workshop! Not even close. ...

        I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

        Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

        Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

        I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
