    I did do something different. I wrote my post and attached the pictures using the standard method. Then I realized that I was in the wrong forum. So, before I posted in the wrong forum, I cut and...

  3. Is it possible to identify these logs?

    I was walking near my house and found this in some woods. I'm a sucker for finding wood to turn and these logs look like they might have some interesting spalting. Any opinions on what these might...

    I was thinking that, if I need a cone, it would be easy enough to drill a 1/4Ē bit into a block of wood, mount the bit on the lathe and turn a cone.

    Thanks for all the advice. I've been piddling around the net and think I've figured things out. My old 3hp Ryobi plunge router does take the Porter Cable type bushings. I've settled on using the Soss...

    Iím building a small cabinet and decided to use SOSS 101 hinges. They require the use of a template (SOSS 101-IT), a router, and a bushing. The best instructions I could find are here.

    Thank you, John. Hobbit house is an outstanding resource. Looking at their examples, Iím more convinced that I have Bubinga.

    Took a couple more pictures at home on the garage floor. They're overlapping so you can't see the full width (between 12-18"), and they're about 9' long. The board on the left looks different than...

    Looking at pictures on the net, I think you guys might be right. The wood was on an upper level in a dark back corner, only accessible with a ladder, probably sitting there for over 30 years. It...

    Is this Rosewood?

    So, I might be in a "you suck" situation, but I'm not sure.

    There's a store about to go out of business near by and a friend is the store's lawyer. I took a look and there was a pile of lumber...

    Itís a problem using a branding iron on a surface thatís not absolutely flat. Does the laser require a flat surface? For instance, if the bottom of a bowl that has a slight curve - will the middle be...

    Thanks, Kevin - If Hannes has a retail store, I'll definitely stop by. I'm a little afraid I'll end up buying another tool, even though I don't need one.

    Thanks, Jon - That's the kind of local...

    My wife and I will be scheduling a "getaway" to Manchester, Vermont for a few days. I'm wondering if there are any good sources in the area for me to check out.

    John - Thank you for doing that! Thatís probably pretty close to what I found (see my post #14). My app read 61 at 2000 rpmís, but my ambient started higher, our apps and phone microphones are...

    Resolution, mostly

    Alright, Iím backing up a step. I now think I was a bit of an alarmist on this. This is what I realized last night: Iím not used to dealing with belts. Never had to change a belt with my Nova. When I...

    Good idea. I didnít even realize that I donít have my location listed. Iím in North Jersey. I do belong to a club here, although we havenít physically met for a long time. Iíll ask there also.

    Brice - The spindle is smooth. The motor noise is the same without the belt engaged.

    There seems to be something wrong with the Grizzly Group search feature. I first searched for "noise" and came...

    Maybe I was spoiled a bit by the relative quietness of the Nova. When I started turning on the Grizzly I was a bit alarmed by the sound, wondering if something was off. I can live with it, just...

    Quick Grizzly G0766 noise question

    After my delivery misadventures, I'm finally turning again. After 3 months of not turning my skills have definitely deteriorated.

    Anyway, the Grizzly seems much louder to me than my last lathe, a...

    As I read your post I remembered that, although I have already sold most of the parts from my dead Nova 2024, I havenít yet sold the banjo. I gave it a shot on the Grizzly and, after replacing the...

    They only sent me the cast iron "shell" of the banjo. I have to reassemble using all the auxiliary hardware from the old banjo. I guess they assume that their buyers have all the necessary tools and...

    The important piece, the bed, is perfect. The banjo will eventually be covered in sawdust and finish. Do I wish it came in perfect? Of course. But I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

  24. Resolution

    It's been about 6 weeks since I first placed the order for the G0766, but I think I'm set now.

    The new bed they sent me is pretty darn close to perfect. No complaints with that. They also want me...

    In the last week Iíve talked to another couple of reps who were very accommodating and apologetic and promised a new lathe bed, banjo, tool rest, knockout bar (mine was bent) and some paint. That...
