Thread: Anniversary clock
07/05/2017 13:52:14

That is the omly problem with spalted wood it is getting it at the right time I have at least 8 pieces that I got and have rough turned, luckily they all feel quite solid and not to punky.

Good luck with the bandsawn box I have made some in the past and enjoyed doing them, but one in spalted wood should look quite good so looking forward to seeing it

Welcome back Old Timer. I enjoy the record planes and find them great to work with I don't own any number 2's but keep looking for some larger ones at the right price.

Thread: elm hollow form.

It looks good which ever way you have it either on or off of the drift wood. I like turning like this that shows warts and all as it adds character to it. Well turned and finished Dennis

I find it a great lathe but I wish it had a through hole in the head stock shaft to use as a holding for morse taper attachments and also to fit a vac chuck but like most things I find other means of doing things.

Forgot to add welcome to the forum. Hope you get the second problem solved. It is good that these machines are getting a second lease of life and being used. They are meant to be good lathes from what I have heard from owners. I am only using a Record Power CL3 but enjoy turning.

I am not familiar with that lathe mechanicaly that is. But some lathes use a double grub screw arrangement where they put one in and tighten it followed by a secons which tightens onto the forst so as to lock it and prevent the part coming loose. Could this be a possibility in your case.

Thankyou for your kind comments i Have always enjoyed making them but finding it hard work now

So I'm stopping while I'm winning

I've already been asked if I would like to sell it but have declined for now

A compliment indeed if someone wants to buy it. Will it be smaller projects from now on

Absolutely fantastic what a great horse an heirloom to be kept and past down the family. I bet they think Grandad is the best

Thread: 3rd hollow form
17/02/2017 13:30:12

Another nice hollow form Dennis. The only thing for me is I feel the foot area could have been a little smaller and giving it a slight lift to the foot would make it float more

Thread: 35y falklands rememberance plate.

Well done and made for a good reason
