    John,

    I really like your setup. I wouldn't mind having 2 lathes, but this one takes up too much real estate to be a spare. Plus the shaft has some slight runout and the tailstock takes some...

    Thanks for the responses guys! I've drooled over the G0766 a few times over the last couple years and as best I can tell it fits exactly what I'm looking for. Just wanted to see if there was...

    Future new lathe purchase

    Gents,

    My wife is in the process of selling her business and has promised me a couple of shop upgrades for the work I've put into it over the last several years. After much pondering I've decided...

    I went kinda a different direction. When I asked the same question a couple of years ago I got the same answers, but I had already blown the dust and old grease out of the bearings and packed them...

    I've looked briefly at wood pellet mills, but I don't make enough sawdust or shavings to justify the investment in time and equipment for a new hobby. I believe the investment would pay off quickly,...

    Beautiful work!

    I did a similar piece last year from a holly stump. After I got the outside done and sanded I wrapped it in several layers of packing cellophane and it held together very well. My...

    Filip,

    Glad you took a shot at it! I know you'll get it to work, just be safe about it and attach the grinder and tool rest to the same base. One thing that can be said about the Chinese is that...

    Correct. The holly stumps sat on the ground at my mom's house for about a year before I had the opportunity to take them home. They were not really punky, but there wasn't anything I could do for the...

    I turned a bowl last year from a holly stump. Still have a big chunk of it, but haven't gotten around to doing anything with it yet. The stump had more color than the trunk, but still pretty bland so...

    Thanks Brian! Yes, the light is a small LED flashlight. In hindsight I should have bought ones that were uniform diameter and/or a standard size. The lights I used were 1-1/16 at the body and about...

    On my off-brand mortiser it isn't so much the chisel bending as the entire mechanism torquing out of alignment. If I tighten everything up so that it doesn't shift at all I can't hardly pull the ram...

    If you think about the life cycle of PPBs they aren't hard to get rid of, but you have to either bake them or cut them out. PPBs lay their eggs on the surface of wood so they prefer rough-sawn lumber...

    I enjoy working with yellow mulberry, though mostly on the lathe. It's light weight betrays it's strength and excellent rot resistance. Not quite that of cedar, but very good. It is also fun to burn...

    Good idea! I've used similar method for drilling plumb holes with a cordless drill. Hadn't considered it for the mortiser, but stands to reason it would work like a charm. Thanks for posting this - I...

    In fence building I was always taught to turn the bow in toward the piece. Clamp it down if you can and it should stay put.
