Derek, I've added work in progress for dumper truck. I read in one post about showing materials from which finished items are made, so I have included the blank timbers obtained to make this truck.

Thanks guys, it's easy if you buy the plans. My next one is well on the way, it's one of those extremely large mining tipper trucks, approx. 18" long.

Can anyone watch part 7 of Peter Dunsmores veneering series?
if I go to TV clickon part 7 I get part 6. If I click on the digit 7 I get an invitation to an exhibition. Is it just my computer or a glitch on the sight?

Thread: Robert Sorby Tool post

Dennis, I left the post with my freind so can't measure.
Julian, I phoned Robert Sorby on Friday but they shut at 1o'clock.

Has anybody got one of these tool posts? I am trying to find out what thread is used for mounting the cross-bars. I bought a post at the woodworking exhibition but it was too short for my lathe and a freind has offered to make one for me but needs to know the thread size for screwing on the tool rests.

I will be going to the show on Friday with a freind and am hoping there are a few more seats around as I have a spur on my heel which bears on the tendon and prevents me from walking or standing for long periods. Usually at these shows seats are only found near the eating area. I would be most grateful if more seats could be provided,

Thread: how to dry wood,
05/03/2011 17:25:01
I have sealed the log and written the date and species on the end and tucked it away in the workshop for future use. But nobody has mentioned how it turns or what it's like to turn. I do have a lathe and can wait until it's ready, thanks.

Hi all, I was in the park today and they were felling some holly trees and I obtained a piece about 6" dia. x 10" long. Has anyone had experience of turning holly? and is it best to turn it wet or dry it first? The ends looked very damp possibly too wet to turn.

Thread: wood mouldings for a longcase clock
28/02/2011 15:15:38
Hi roy, I have made several grandmother clocks with arched tops and what Simon said is the way to go. Hand routing this shape is not really practical or safe. You must make the arch shape longer than required and cut it to size later. Also you need to cut the S shape onthe band saw after all the detail shaping is finished. Then use a ply jig trimmed and shaped,sanded smooth to guide the bearing of the router bit around the shape. See clock picks in my album.

Thread: segmented vase

Hi, Dennis, thanks for your reply, will check pm.

Dennis, these are marvellous, I'm just starting my first attempt. Made a sliding jig to give accurate and constant blocks on my smaller 10inch table saw. Now attempting to glue pieces together into flat rings to create layers. Pva glue slow and difficult to achieve good results, what glue do you use? Do you glue all segments in one go for each layer? Your latest vases seem thicker than mine, is there a minimum wall thickness to safely turn bowl?

John, You should also look closely at the Ryobi. I bought one last year and it is great, with cross hair location and a really good depth set-up which is simple to use. The round table has rome around the edge for clamping things to it. It was highly recommended in a magazine so I took a closer look and bought it and am very satified with it.

Hi, all
           Just wanted to tell people about the quick turn round on an order from Rexon Spares.
            I rang them yesterday to enquire about new thrust bearings for my old Rexon BS10 bandsaw. They still had them in stock and took my order. The parts arrived in the post this morning. That's what I call service, well done Rexon Spares I will definitely use them again and recommend them.

This issue of practical woodworking was my last free issue with my subscription, but for some reason it wasn't sent out. Now they tell me theyv'e run out but have ordered more and I will have to wait. I get the feeling I'm being given the run around. I can't wait to get my hands on after reading these comments.
