    Rechucking wobble

    I have a Clarke CWL 12D, and have had pretty much the same problem when turning pieces end for end. Rough blank, made cylindrical, o.k. Tenon in tail stock end, o.k. Swap the tail stock end for the chuck held end - part does not run true. About 1/8" variation from the tool rest to the piece...

    How many active turners remain in UKWorkshop ?

    Hi all, been on a break from this website, not sure why... Oh, yeah I do. Short term memory loss diagnosed by the doctors... Still turning, but re-learning it all over again. Got some new tools, looking forward to getting the lathe back up and running...

    Clarke CWL 12D, wiring problem...

    Hi all, I've stupidly disconnected the wiring from the switch block. Thought I'd take decent photos, but it appears not.🙄 Can anyone post pics of where the wires go / in which pin position please? Much appreciated, thank you.

    A few years back, you couldn't unglue me from the telly (As I said "A few years back"...) These days, like tonight - a Bank Holiday Monday - when there used to be a couple of good films to choose from, I'm on the computer (obviously), and SWMBO is sewing on the machine (Women should never have...

    Newbee - 1st Sketchup Design for firewood log store

    Fair comment, and no probs Matt! Although if you stack your wood properly... it shouldn't lean :roll: It will of course stop rain getting on that end + speed up the drying process... :).

    Newbee - 1st Sketchup Design for firewood log store

    Hi Sawdustmaker - looks good to me - are you having it against a wall? If so, I'd do away with the back cladding. Also - have supports at the ends (short horizontals) to stick uprights against where your logs are too short to be supported by the main frame...(Guess who found out the hard way?)...

    A strange sense of satisfaction

    Fogggytown - I know what you mean, also second Joiner's comment though! A feeling of a job well done, by yourself, without relying on outside supplies / support etc makes (me) feel a man... That doesn't sound like I should post it on a family friendly forum, but I feel I've completed it, and...

    Wood thingy show in Leicestershire

    I'm going, found out yesterday that I was "allowed" a day off... Having been nice and let SWMBO have a lie in and a car boot trawl this morning on her own! So, to recognise me - you should look for a guy in a leather hat and chainmail waistcoat... You'll spot it, and go "WTF is he wearing that...
