Re: Homemade tools with carbide cutters

Thanks Doug.
Captain Eddie is sending me a replacement cutter and I'll just have to be more careful this time.

BTW, your Facebook page is AWESOME. I love the nesting owl.

Homemade tools with carbide cutters

Hi Guys, After watching many YouTube videos on the use of carbide cutters, I thought I'd have a crack at making some.... well the handle and bar at least. Making the handle was straight forward enough and I used a nice piece of Oak. I wanted a long and thick handle Using a12 inch length of 1/2"...

How to hold your wood securely

OK, I'm still a child at heart and a smutty one at that :lol: but I have a serious question about securely holding wood on the lathe. I've only been turning for about 12 months and thought I'd try my hand at off centre turning after seeing this video on youtube. http://youtu.be/IcnPjNFdLX4 The sugge...

Making "Shine Juice"

I was watching Captain Eddie on YouTube and he suggest a concoction for making his own recipe for shine juice and shows how it's applied. http://youtu.be/7obdn9xDVaA The recipe is given 4 minutes in (but it's worth watching the whole video). My question is where can I get denatured alcohol and would...

Re: Table Saw vs Sliding Compound Mitre Saw

Thanks for the reply Mark. A friend of a friend suggested that I steer clear of Evolution or Titan so that rules out that particular table saw. I don't foresee myself cutting huge blocks of wood which is why I'm pretty much sold on the chop saw. The only thing I can imagine that wont fit would be lo...

Table Saw vs Sliding Compound Mitre Saw

I'm a hobbyist wood turner and general DIYer and I'm trying to decide what I'd be better spending my beer tokens on; a table saw or a mitre saw. The reason for my purchase is that I quite fancy trying to make segmented bowls and pots on the lathe and therefore need something that makes nice crisp cu...

Re: Replacement motor for Record CL1-36 Lathe

After much research, I ended up buying the motor from http://www.haydockconverters.co.uk/ . They were very helpful and patient with an noob like me. The reason for my choice was from anecdotal evidence that "Drives Direct" will sell you anything even if it won't fit your machine. They did ...

Re: Replacement motor for Record CL1-36 Lathe

Im not sure why the person at record didnt help you directly . I have had many spares and parts off them in the past aswell as very good service and information . He just said that because it was an old lathe I needed to contact the manufacturer of the motor but the guys at S Haydock's said they do...

Replacement motor for Record CL1-36 Lathe

Hi, I'm new to the forum so please be gentle with me. ;) I have recently purchased a Record Power CL1-36. It came with a variable speed controller for the single phase motor. I've been using it for about 20 hours now with the speed controller and burnt out the starter capacitor. :? Now I'm new to al...

Re: Welcome! Say Hello

Hi,
I'm new to the forum and wood turning in general. I've just completed an 8 week course run by the "Trent Valley Woodturners" and absolutely loved it.
I hope to pick up some tips, tricks and techniques from the gurus here.
Cheers.
