    Most of my scrapers are 10V (CPM10V) from Thompson Tools. It is no problem to burnish a burr using a carbide burnishing rod or burnisher.

    No, I've never heard of him or saw those pieces. I've also never seen wood with figure that still stands out strongly over a 6' high ​piece.

    I've never seen a Jet 1640 but I have the older 1642 lathes. I've turned bowls up to almost 16" on the Jet 1642. The heads of both the Jet and the PM3520 don't swivel but slide but I've heard the...

    In my haste I didn't catch that it was a 3520A and not a B. I agree the asking price is too high for the A, even at almost new.

    Are you getting a strong enough signal to your Samsung? We also have a Samsung TV and the NetFlix, etc works fine and works better when I moved the WiFi router a bit. We also have a Ruku that...

    I have no idea why the SMC vbulletin behaves as it does but the fix is easy - load into an image editor, rotate as desired, and save as a new file. I use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

    The price may be a little high but doesn't seem too far off based on some I've heard of in the last year or so, especially if it really is nearly new. If it doesn't sell quickly perhaps they will...
  9. Flattening on the lathe with a sanding block/stick

    The method with a sanding block/stick works extremely well if the sanding is confined to a rim. Cutting away the center a bit on both surfaces also makes clamping easier. And by removing most of...

    I haven't tried it with a turning blank but if the rails are all in one plane and the blank is held securely I can't imagine it not working. I'd still probably sand the surface a little after...
  11. flattening for gluinig up a stack

    Flattening on the lathe will work but can be difficult. When I do that for certain glue ups I flatten "mostly" then use a long, thick "stick" with 80 grit sandpaper glued on one flattened surface...

    what I do

    Thomas,

    Which editor are you using? I post a lot of pictures but have not once had the SMC editor lock up when adding one. If you are using the Enhanced WYSIWYG editor in SMC you might try...

    Get your brother-in-law to open it. Seriously, you are wise to stay on the outside of the box if you lack experience. Ask around - you probably know someone who can not only open the box but...

    Sorry, I've never heard of a switch like that. I use these switches with pilot lights, both 110 and 220v, but the light is not LARGE - the handle is illuminated red when the switch is on. ...

    You'd go crazy here. My PM headstock slides but I don't move it to the end. I have that lathe in a corner because of shop space and because I like it that way.

    Again, it depends on the cut and the clearance. If I need to cut right against something else, such as a floor or an obstruction, the dremel simply won't fit while a multitool with the right bit...

    I have a Fein Multimaster. I don't use it every day but when I need it there is often nothing else that works as well.

    I use it most in places where other tools won't fit.
