I need some void free nicely figured attractive olive wood. it can be wild, spanish, bethlehem etc.
I'm looking for a length of 12" x 2" x2" or even 1.3/4"square would be enough.
I can buy or I can trade in pen blanks.
One of the guys at the club is selling his small lathe, a Nova Mercury.
Its in good condition and he's looking for £100-120, negotiable.
The lathe is perfect for pens and smaller work and features electronic variable speed. I think you can see full specs on the Tecnatool website...
A month or so ago Neil Dyball kindly helped me out with some Elm burr. He wanted to see the pen it was required for.
Apologies Neil, I forgot but here it is now. I didn't go with the most highly figured piece you sent, this one just seemed to suit the recipient best.
Thanks for your...
I tried to swap a set of these recently for a set for the Talon chuck.
Well, the owner has now said they are for sale.
They are a set of the Mega jumbo jaws for the Oneway Stronghold chuck. I think they will accommodate 14/15".
He has only 4 buttons (8 are safer) so another set would need to...
An odd one I know but Ive got a set of Oneway Mega Jumbo Jaws that fit the Stronghold chuck. Unfortunately my chuck is the Talon so the jaws don't fit :cry: They are used but in good nick.
Dont suppose anyone is looking for a swap? :roll:
Just thought I'd ask.
I'm in urgent need of two blanks of Elm burr 18x18mm by 150mm. Theyre for a set of Jr, Gents as a gift and the blanks I thought I had,,, well, I haven't.:?
I can buy, trade, whatever is required if someone out there is able to assist.
Im trying to find a Jacobs chuck but with a screw thread instead of morse taper fit.
The thread for my Hegner is 33x3.5 and it's to fit that.

Im about to buy one of the above but don't know for sure which to go for.
I saw a mix of Powercaps and Trends at the bash on Saturday and those are the two brands that I think it will come down to.
Is there a comparison/review of the two current models anywhere? Ive googled without success...
Im about to replace the workshop door with an outward opening stable door and would appreciate any pointers regarding:
Best finish, (hardwood door)
Rebate in bottom? Do I need one, Ive got a new frame and hardwood sill.
Best type of lock (Ive looked at sash locks but they all have that curved...
Thought Id post this link to the above in case someone's looking.
It started at £900 and is now down to £650,, seems a good price to me.
My neighbour is still clearing out all his woodturning stuff and came across this a week ago. Its still in its original box (Large!) and appears to have all the bits including the 4 tools which look in mint condition.

This belongs to a neighbour who's giving up turning. :cry:
He's sold most of his kit but came across this at the bottom of a cupboard :shock: .
Only used a few times by him and forgotten about.
