    My first lathe was a Craftsman 9" lathe for $75. Its slowest speed was 950 rpms. It was fine for turning spindles, goblets and smaller things. When I mounted a larger diameter piece on it,...

    Bill,
    BTW, for your 120 volt circuits, hopefully you wired them so about half use one phase and the other half use the other phase - - that is, kind of balancing the load. One of the benefits of...

    I don't think that the 30A 220V circuit in the same box as the other stuff is the issue. But, if I am correctly interpreting your post, you appear to be using a single 20A breaker (presumably a 220...

    If you end up exhausting all other possibilities, you may want to consider buying/using a circuit tracer. What you would do is to either trip the breaker or pop it out and then connect the circuit...

    I attended a seminar by Mike Mahoney who sells his own brand of walnut oil and was told that he (essentially) boils it which changes it to make it polymerize (harden) quicker. I think that if you...

    I have a 2 HP dust collector with a Thien baffle. It works GREAT at pulling in power sanding dust from my lathe. But it doesn't do a whole lot for large chips.
