|Thread: Small cabinets - suitable for Kitchen/Bathroom|
Hi Mick - They look very good, I am sure you will do very well. Best of luck
|Thread: yew vase|
Hi Denis -- I know there are members on this site that don't like flaws in wood especially large holes in the side of a piece but this one turns the vase from a functional piece into a decorative piece and as such I think that Yew is wonderful in the colours and contrast that it produces. Nice Work Dennis
Hi Ivor -- Well, I coulden't help with the question but would love to know the answer ? - Julian
|Thread: what to do with a pice of checked and split wood|
Hi Denis - I love this kind of work it realy adds to the character of the piece, well done
|Thread: Zyliss vice|
Hmm !! -- 3-1/2 year old post. Hi John & welcome to the forum, I too have one of these and love it to bits. My bench is usually too full of rubish when I need to do something so it usually comes out.
Hi Steve -- I think that most of the advice has already been said above, you need to work from the centre out and keep the handle of the gouge slightly above the cutting edge of the tool with the face at about the 10O'Clock position and keep the bevel rubbing as has been suggested. You will probably need to switch to a shear scraper for the sides or use the wings of a spindle gouge to bring up the sides. This should reduce the amount of sanding needed at the end, I think important also is to not ask too much of the tool in this I mean take light cuts and don't try to force the tool into the work.
This is my first goblet that was done a while ago now
|Thread: Yandles Autumn Show 2012|
Hi Simon/ Sam -- I will be there on the Friday
|Thread: Planer Blades|
Hi Derek -- You could try Tewksebury Saw Company, they manufacture them or Hamilton Beaverstock they advertise in the mags. They are manufacturers also. Not sure of the size that you need but Hamilton supply the ones that I use but mine are not disposable ones and they are only 1/2mile from the house
|Thread: From pew to pigeon holes|
Hi Richard -- All been said, a fantastic job well done.
|Thread: ELEKTRA BECKUM SPA 1000|
Hi David - three answers are always better than one. Also have a look in axminster tools there is not much you cant get from there with regard to the hose clips and bags etc. That doesn't mean that there are not cheaper places around either mind.
|Thread: Dust extraction|
Hi Chris and welcome -- I had a little wobble there for a minute when I saw Sparky come up
The others will know
|Thread: made this tick tock but?|
Dave - I think they do but too a lesser degree, a blade will cut cleanly so there will be no contamination however if for instance you turn a piece of ash with a tool that is not quite as sharp at it could be there will be a bit of pink wood around the cut edge of the piece as you are rubbing the bevel of the tool against the wood.
|Thread: I must be doing something right!|
Good Tradesmen are few and far between these days Mailee, I don't think you have anything to worry about until the competition raises it's game quite a bit.
|Thread: made this tick tock but?|
Hi Dave - I think you have answered your own question with the wire wool. The steel will blacken Oak quite readily as it will a lot of timbers. Mailee hit the nail on the head with that one I have a lump of Yew that has gone quite pink in colour because of barbed wire being wrapped around the trunk on the tree for years when it was out in the field. Very Nice Clock by the way -- Julian
|Thread: megaturn lathes|
Derek/ Keith -- Talking of pricy lathes you may with to take a look at the latest newsletter from my club **LINK** the article is called Keith's Big Day Out
|Thread: sierra pen|
Wow -- As you say Dennis very classy indeed, I hope you do manage to sell them -- Julian
|Thread: A Use for Leftover Bits of Worktop|
Hi Richard -- Verry nice indeed, I presume the table top and the chair seats
are the old counter top ?

|Thread: Riving knife for a table saw.|
Hi Paul -- It's only a piece of steel about 2mm thick that will come to the top of your blade and follow it's curve. If it's been removed for a reason the mounting bloc should still be in tact so should be quite straight forward. May be easier however to try and find a spare for your model (you don't say what it is). Best of luck -- Julian
|Thread: Neighbours gift|
Hi Mailee -- Very nice indeed, probably a months work for me and I don't think I would even attempt the inlay. Well Done, I am sure your neighbour will be very pleased with it.
Hi Denis -- Looks fantastic to me very close indeed. Did you say in a previous post that your club was having a copy turning competition ? (I wonder)
