Thread: New to turning
07/04/2012 17:20:02

Hi Eugene -- I am also pretty new to Turning and bought the Axminster set originally and I still use them, they are HSS and it has just about all you need to start with. After visiting the Yandles show last year for the first time I got Talking to the Guys at Robert Sorby and Ishley Isles so bought a couple of each and have to say they are both streets ahead of the axminster set in quality. I also bought the RS universal sharpening system for the chisels together with a record power grinding wheel and the two go well together.

This is my latest project made from sycamore (I think) and only using the Ashley 13mm Bowl Gouge and a piece of formica to burn the rings.

Have fun Eugene you will find a wealth of info from the guys on this site. -- Julian

I tend to use Hamilton Beverstock only because they are walking distance from me, I can't fault them.

Thread: Looking for a chuck!
04/03/2012 13:27:40

Hi Paul -- The metalworkers will use a three jaw as they tend to be self centering where as the 4Jaw tend to be independant. In woodworking most lathes will use 4 Jaw which will be self centering so have no fears over this. There are a number of different Chucks out there at all different price ranges but you will find that you get what you pay for. The Axminster series of chuck are very good with good aftersales service and a good range of jaws. I have the patriot chuck which I find excellent, what I will say though is get one with an removable mounting adaptor. This will enable you to use the same chuck if you change your lathe and the new one doesn't have the 3/4 x 16 thread. You may soon find that the No1 MT is a bit small for you and No2 or 3 MT will have a larger thread. Hope this helps Paul, you will find lot's of help on this site. -- Julian

Thread: Yew wood
09/01/2012 13:22:35
Hi Steve -- Good advice from everyone, Yew is a wonderful wood for turning so look after it. Yes it does have a tendance to split but so long as it's seasoned properly yew should be ok. Julian

Thread: Competition Pieces
23/12/2011 19:44:16
Hi Mark -- Two very nice pieces, I like the contrast between the woods and the proportions are pleasing to the eye. I take Richards point on the top finiel but excellent work never the less. Have a good Christmas Mark -- Julian
Thread: Garage doors
23/12/2011 19:41:48
Hi Mailee -- I have often wondered about the best method for fixing the boards as there would surley be a security risk if you could kick them through easily or dig them out with a jemmy bar. By the way - you say that the car was full of wood for the doors, what happened to your new van ? -- Julian
Thread: My new shop
23/12/2011 19:38:38
Hi Mailee -- Certainly looks big enough for the job, hope everything goes well over the Christmas Break. Happy Christmas -- Julian

Very nicely done derek, I was watching Les Thorne down at Yandles in September doing his colouring and he makes it look easy but I am sure it's not. -- Julian
