Thread: Lazy Kate x 2 sort of
02/08/2015 05:01:15

That’ a fine solution you have come up with Ray, it can’t be easy getting hold of English Oak over your way, can it?

Thanks Steven. So far I have had no problem with an offer early this year of a large log if I wanted it, no where to store it so had to pass.

Derek I think I may have scored a few points.......... just.

Sue required a new Lazy Kate to store nine bobbins for the new wheel.

I had made a horizontal one previously for her other wheel/s also nine bobbins its to big.

The idea in general came from cotton bobbin stands seen around just a wee bit larger.

The top and bottom are locked together with a simple pin which allows the top to rotate to allow access to lower bobbins. A brass bush was machined to give better wear and retain the top platter.

Gal rods 6mm dia epoxy in place.

All English oak as the wheel is also.

My favourite is Ornamental Turning yet to make my Rose Engine although its in the process and has been for some years.

Pen are evil things LOML started making them but she is a spinner & weave and rough hands do not blend well with fibres like silk. So I got sucked down a portal ATM I am resisting well.

I have some plans for one made out of MDF of all things.

You know you want to have a go at pens

I have better plans for Rose Engine the MDF one in UK would need to be replaced often due to moisture.

Like this one

Thank you Ray.

What to cold for you Raylaugh. Do you not have a heater in there

Derek this morning at 8am it was 3C now at 9.30am its 8C being a Geordie by birth but softened up with 55 yrs of living down under after 16 yrs of driving snow tours here a heater just ain't gonna cut it or bring it back to 25C wink 2

Still today I hope to be out there shortly with little fan heater going to take the chill off that should be around 15C. Mind you sun is shining bright its the wind chill and shade on shed till sun comes over the roof at noon. The carpet on floor helps a tad though.

I am into Steel & Wood and have a number of both projects on the go often.

Wood wise is mainly turning but its dictated by room and $$$ I do have two coffee table tops one Australian Red Cedar the other camphor cut and ready to make legs and finish.

This will be a thread of tools bought, made and procured.

The old 4 jaw independent chuck was a freebie but had a 19mm bore thread my Jet Mini is 1" x10 so I re-drilled and taped and machined to remove a run out off the face. This will be used for Ornamental Turning and surface decoration jobs,


My youngest son dumped these on my desk after the company he was/is working for combined with parent co' they had major clean out.

Thread: Hot Shed
08/07/2015 00:55:06

RRF just as much as ATM I find a bloody cold shed is keeping me in doors Derek.

Hot shed in the UK yeh right what temps that 18C LOL come summer as my garage shed door faces west from 2pm I have to be wise to rising temps past 35C.

In winter shade of two palms and two trees cast shadow bringing the temp down rapidly by 2.30pm.

Mate has a little tin shed which has Opaque Laser Light roofing in mid winter its like 20C in his shed and he can work almost all day. Come summer he needs a fan on.

Thread: Weather Station
21/06/2015 07:33:05

Thanks Steven & Derek.

The back of the Hygrometer and Barometer must be open to the ambient room temp so holes had to be right through. Both instruments have adjustments on the backs also.

I know some in the UK imports Aussie Burls I can't imagine the cost though.

Derek I have a cousin heading down under for a few weeks, if we catch up (he's heading further north than we are for 4 of his 6 weeks. Shoot me some details I can't promise but I'll try. I know your down south, while he's Petersbourgh way.
