|Thread: Yandles Spring show|
Hi Sam -- Just about two weeks time. I shall be there on the Friday, will you be working again ?
|Thread: Narrow Boat|
David - Looks great I hope you enjoyed doing the work, after 6 years I would think you will be kept busy with the maintenance from here on in !
Ian - Good to see you back on the forum. -- Julian
|Thread: Carving #2|
I think that's first class Derek, I love the little mouse -- Julian
|Thread: Looking for a chuck!|
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: Burgess Bandsaw|

|Thread: Yew wood|
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: is it tight enough?|
Hi Diego -- PM me your e-mail address and i will mail you a copy of the manual. I've done it for a few on this site. This is a good little saw but be gentle with it. Julian
Hi George -- Good to see you on the forum again, hope everything is ok with you.
A Very Happy Christmas and New Year to all on the GoodWood Forum and to our viewers. I will also echo to Sparky if you are out there Mark ? -- Julian
|Thread: Competition Pieces|
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|
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|
Hi Mailee -- Certainly looks big enough for the job, hope everything goes well over the Christmas Break. Happy Christmas -- Julian
|Thread: job in process|
Um !! Forgive a Dull Question but what is a bowl saver ?
Great Work so far Dennis.
|Thread: First Colouring|
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
|Thread: xmas wish list|
Hi Paul -- Glad your getting something out of it all, my wish list is for more time in the shed !
Hi Ron -- I have to say that you have some very talented turners at your club. Some very attractive pieces from what can only be described as scrap wood. -- Julian
|Thread: Setting a planer???|
You are not getting a bit of snipe on the ends are you Drew ? You generally need to alow a few inches on each end of the piece for where the wood leaves the machine, the middle bit being on a flat bed can't be anything but flat and parallel
|Thread: sculpted pen|
Hi Dennis -- That's a really nice combination of blank and kit, they go well together. Interesting that you say you are using the micromesh wet, does it make a difference to the finish ? I have only ever used mine dry.
|Thread: rustic stool|
Hi Medims -- I love the Celtic Design it's so much like the the ones we get here in Wales. Is the top cut from a single board ? -- Julian
