  • pen turners workbook

    picked up 2nd edition pen turners workbook. It's a great book and very easy to understand. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in making a pen. There is some information in the book on making pens with stripes and a few other designs, but not nearly as much pen scrolling information as I would have liked. I'd like to see them compound cutting and scrolling arcs and especially making fishscale designs...perhaps there is a more advanced book for someone that is a whole lot more ambitious?

    There is TONS of excellent info and articles on penturning at some of the pen turners forum. The one I frequent the most is penturners.org . Lots of inlay, segmented, curves, routed, milled, etc pens out of plastic, wood, corian, corncobs, pine cones,etc........

      Ok, I'll have to check that out. Sure would be nice to have an advanced book at my side too for when I'm in the shop. I like referencing with books. The last one is a fox chapel book, but don't know if they have a more advanced one.

        Look thru the articles in the "Library" forum Jeff. While not a "book", there are PDF files with instruction. The 2 I remember were a "swirl" pen with different wood and curves, and a scrolled spider pen. I think they were in 2006 section.....

            I have to wait up to 24 hrs to become a member of that site. I was browsing around a bit doing some reading at the penturners.org and I have to say..."WOW!!" Those people are the most arogant snots I ever read! I guy asks a question for help and everyone jumps on his back, feeds him a bunch of hogwash and quote Niche to him! People here at SSW have no idea how good they have it here, that's for sure.
            I think I'll poke around there time to time and hope to filter some good information from all the useless rederick...but I am thinking I'm too afraid to ask any questions.

              Amen to that Jeff! My post count there is REAL low. There are some good folks on that board, but nothing like here.......or at sawmillcreek.org....

                  I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

                  Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

                  The VacuFlo actually uses...

                  I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
                  Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....

                  For something like a table saw the volume of air moved is much more important than whether a good vacuum is produced....
