Thread: DeWalt DW100 Bandsaw help please
25/06/2017 22:10:31

The only question I can answer is the first about the slot that is there so that you can change the blade when you want. On mine there rail along the front of this to which the guide fence is attached.

As for the others maybe someone who has owned one may be able to help but I would have thought that there should be a small table for the sander.

If the sanding discs are like the one on my cheap sander then they are sticky backed so you would need to remove the old ones then clean any adhesive before attaching the new one. The way I have been told to remove the old one is warm the disc up to help to release the adhesive. A heat gun would be a good idea to use but not too close and keep it moving.

dscf7461.jpgYew Bowl

I had a piece of yew log laying around and like the shape when looking at the end, I could have got two conventional bowls but instead went with end grain. I still have another one to do in the future. I really enjoyed doing this one. It measures 13" X 8 1/2" X 3 1/2", I have just counted my fingers and they are all still there.

That's OK yes still making shavings I have added some recent work to my albums. This drill press allows for a deeper throat, but comes at a small price

That is right but the ones I have looked at don't seem to give that measurement. luckily I don't need to have a deep throat for the work I do, I mainly need the quill travel especially when drilling pen blanks.

Nice one Dennis should look great when finished

Thread: Black and Decker Band saw

Not sure but THIS maybe the same machine under a different name.

Thread: A Plane Bowl

Thank you both.

Yes I agree it is a nice wood to turn and so many grain patterns in on piece of wood I still have another 9 the same size to turn.

First piece of proper turning for nearly two months. This is turned from London Plane and finished with sander sealer. It measures 8 3/4" X 1 3/4"

Thread: Anniversary clock

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

Thread: old plane
15/04/2017 17:17:23

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

Thread: Restoring old Union Graduate

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.

08/04/2017 16:45:53

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.

08/04/2017 14:29:04

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.

I think the different woods work together nice little box
