Hi Derek, I recently bought a second hand sip bansaw with a 6'' cut on using it for the first time it was wandering all over the place, I was lead to belive the blade was fairly new so tried adjusting the guides etc and still no joy so i asked the question on here and was advised to try a new blade so i bought a xclaiber from axminster put it on hey presto like a knife through butter.

Thread: Has any one turned any wall art.
20/10/2011 19:22:24
Hi Les, we had the pleasure of proffesinal wood turner George Foweraker do a demo at our club this year and his forte is wall art and he exsplained the dangers of not being able to reach the on off switch, and what he did was plug the lathe into a exstention lead and had the socket down by his feet. he also paints and scorches his work take a look at his web site he got a good blog. hope this helps

Like yew Sam I enjoy making clock's the choice of wood is first class all the best for the comp update us on how you get on. Dennis you always amaze me with your segment work their is one of the lads from the club that is into segment work and iv'e been to see him at work and amazed at the amount of work involved credit to you. The same applies in our club of only one catergory which im not a fan of as how can the novice's compete with fella's that been into it for years is beyond me but hey that's the rules.
