    Thanks for sharing!

    I have a group of cub scouts coming here next weekend for an intro to woodworking (with hand tools).
  2. Bees wax in finishes

    I often use beeswax but without mineral oil. I rub the beeswax into the surface then depending on the look I want and/or the wood I either rub it in by hand or (usually) heat with a heat gun until...

    Thanks, I'll try cranking it up.

    BTW, one of my Tri-Master carbide blades broke but it was at the weld and I don't think from over tensioning. The local bandsaw blade shop rewelded it and it...

    A microscope is great! Especially if it's not too high power. I have some lab microscopes but the one I use for wood (and bugs and self-surgery on splinters, etc) is a low power true...

    Do you have a CPU temperature monitor program? There are many, one could alert you to the need to clean.

    You might get a number of different guesses based on your photos but remember that all of them are wrong, except for maybe one (if you are lucky!)

    Many exotics are tough to ID since they have very...

    Do you mean the Varigrind 1 or 2?

    I have both. I don't like the Varigrind 2. It forces the gouge to stay in the center of the wheel the whole time. This will eventually wear out the center of...

    Yes, I can see the picture now. Very smooth cut.

    I have a couple of Tri-iMaster, but they are 1/2"x3tpi. The cut is pretty smooth on my 18" Rikon but not that smooth.

    I've never heard of the Kodiak set so I watched his video. Looks ok in general. I disagree with his statement that it is nearly universally accepted that a flat grind on a skew is better than a...

    Were these turned wet from start to finish or turned to a thicker wall, dried, then turned to final size?

    With that shape the wood will be thick from the "corner" to the inside. Thicker wood can...

    Michael, I like 8" wheels better than 6" because the concavity of the bevel is a little less. Also, sometimes 6" bench grinders are not built as rigidly as larger grinders. The high speed is OK...

    I never measure just one thread. For non metric threads to get TPI I set the calipers to one inch and count the number of threads in that span. At 1" the points of the calipers should fit nicely...

    That makes sense. Sorry, I got confused by the term "lug".

    Chris,

    I don't use a hollowing rig but have seen a couple of demos. The Bosch does seems good. Lots of people have made their own, too. It doesn't seem too hard, especially if you have a way...

    Thanks for the comments!

    It was nice to do some turning after not touching the lathe for a couple of months (except for a bit of teaching.)



    Bill, I guess I should post more pictures then!
