I thought pelmets where old hat now, in the sixties there was a whole range of hard board pelmet fronts on sale, still these thing have a habit of repeating themselves over the years
|Thread: A dead pear|
I don't know how long it has been dead, you will have to check it as wood worm may have started on it, I don't know about partridges, it is probably one of those pesky doves that sit on our roof kicking up a racket cooing at one another!
Other than that it turns lovely, go get it.

Nice one Dennis, well done.

The Bury club is still running , Ron Davis is the man, look at the post Electra dust extractor click on his name and send him a message, that's ff he dos'nt read your message and answer you, or look at the affiliated wood turner web site and the Bury club is listed with Ron's details.
Hope this helps George

|Thread: Tibetian Spaniel|
Another excellent piece of work I;m with Bill on the envy stakes,
|Thread: Advice Needed|
You have two different requirments , to drill your light pulls a standard Jacobs type chuck will suffice, but drilling lamp spindles you need a Long Hole Boring kit, Records do these @ £39.99 they are complete with the shell auger, when you drill long holes through lamp spindles you drill half way then turn the wood round end for end and then drill the other half. hope this is of some help.
|Thread: preparing blanks|
Peg. or to give it it's full name Polyethylene Glycol, I have a quantity in store , I purchased it, must be 17 years ago and never used it, I also have a book by Patric Spielman that explains the way it works and how it is used. it seems it had a use for rifle buts as it stabalised the wood , also for slabs for table tops, there was a lot of research done in America,
Micheal O'Donnell mentions in his book Turning Green Wood saying it was used for stabilizing the timbers from underwater archaeological wrecks when they are taken out of water for display,but he was not impressed with it's use for wood turning , saying the process takes as long as normal drying the part turned bowl.
|Thread: Easter Greetings|
Happy Easter to one and all, been spending the last two days painting the fences.
