 Have you thought about using battery operated t lights much safer , un attended candles are not safe, we had this discussion before, there was a bad fire in a town near us due to leaving an unattended t light on top of a television, two firemen died.
Put battery t lightes in google there is lot's to choose from.

 Stuat King's mixture will ebonise the oak,  Place wire wool in a jar and cover with vinegar the longer you leave it the darker it will make the wood, try on a scrap piece of oak,  finish with a food safe oil.
 Good luck George.

A mate of mine eight weeks ago managed to run a router cutter between his thumb and fore finger, very nasty ,worse than a clean cut as it removed the flesh, in the Sun today is an accident with a nail gun in America the gun went of and fired the nail into the blokes head just stopping short of the brain nasty.

Hi Gys
Have you seen this month Good Woodworking issue235 the letter of the month deals with the very subject, showing what Ken Mackinnon has made using work top offcuts.
 And for those that are interested Ralph Harvey's article on a carriage clock is published  with pictures and good instruction details.  Nice one  Ralph

The only experience I have had with a nail gun,I used to have a supply of wooden pallets from a car windscreen supplier, and often cursed the use of a nail gun when trying to take them apart, they seemed to have fired six nails where two would have done the job, also they used long staples which could be s*** to get out. but they must be a godsend to any professional timber fixer saving time and energy,

Thread: lathe problem

 A call to Axminsters they stock the gun and the grease , I believe it is called an Aregon nipple?
12/11/2010 16:03:07
 I take it you mean the head stock pulley, have you checked for movement when you adjust the speed, you say you where on a high speed, when the head stock pulley is fully open, the pulleys can wear badly at the point of contact and not slide into each other, have you greased the motor shaft lately? and the headstock shaft.
 Are any of the head stock bearings tightening up under power, do they feel tight if you turn them by hand, there are three bearings two in the headstock and one in the speed control lever system
 I would strip it down and check for wear. and lubricate it well.
