    I saw a lathe that was set up using a compound bow (overhead) in place of a plain bow or spring pole. It seemed to work quite well.

    When I bought the Conover it was the must-have "heavy" lathe, unless you could score an old Oliver, or something exotic from...

    You need to keep wood stacked far enough away that you can look to see the mud tunnels running up your foundation to the wood. Aside from that it doesn't much matter-- termites are pretty much...

    Thanks-- I don't want to keep it on wheels, this is just to get it moved into place, one time only. I have piano dollies and such, the casters just seemed like an easy and secure way to accomplish...
  10. seek to rent or buy Robust AB casters

    My new lathe should be arriving in early January (yay!!). It looks like the caster set would be very useful to have to get it into place in my shop, but ~$400 for a single use seems pretty spendy....

    I most regret a _very_ bad copy of a Stanley block plane with a mouth about a half inch wide, a twisted/skewed body, adjuster that wouldn't keep the blade in position for three strokes of the plane,...

    I have this one , a little more expensive, but it will turn over my F350 diesel on a cold morning as long as the batteries aren't completely gone. It holds a charge for a at least a year.

    I've done it by tacking a strip on what will be the short edge and running it through the planer. Also by doing an angled cut on a bandsaw for smaller pieces.
