Woodturning

Post by ReverendThom » Tue Oct 31, 2017 4:50 pm

I decided we needed this thread much like our fishing and pipe making threads. Post your turning projects here. Maybe this will make some of you get back out to the lathe :)

Here is my third pen. I like pen making so far. Nice & simple to get into. I have a safety razor I think I'll try next.

Pssst... Friday, November 3rd is International Fountain Pen day!

This is another ballpoint that you've made? Maybe you should go upstairs and give out candy to the wee pagans.

Yes, ballpoint, but I've been eyeing up some nice fountain pen kits! 30 little pagans so far :)

I like this thread idea.

Well done on the pen. They make fun projects and cherished gifts. You can make a buck or two with them, also.

I'm starting an order for two dozen bottle stoppers this weekend. Pics to come.

Great thread idea. We have a lathe at the Ranch, but none of us know how to use it. Any of you gentlemen (or FredS) have any teaching resources or tips? I’d like to see what I can do to get it running this winter.

I see what you did there. :twisted:

Best tip I have is to wear long hair, loose jewelry, and a neck tie while operating the lathe.

Also, sharp tools are extremely dangerous. Deadly even. So make sure your chisels and gouges are dull.

You should also keep the drive belt(s) well lubricated so they don't squeak. Your wife's favorite hand lotion works well for this and it keeps the belts from getting dry and cracking. If it flings drops of lotion on the wall or ceiling every time you start the lathe you're using just the right amount.

The more asymmetric the blank is, the faster it needs to turn on start-up.

And who needs anchor bolts? It's fun to chase your lathe around the shop.

Made an acrylic pen this morning. It matches my Grabow kinda. Sweet.

Wish I was better at pipe making so I could make matching sets. Image
