    This really sucks big time

    Make another sanding disc about 200mm - 300 diameter, cover the face with your closed cell foam, drill a hole in the centre & fix your beer tube as per your chuck. Spin the disc on the lathe & make concentric rings approx 25mm apart with a biro, this helps to roughly centre a bowl so as you can...

    Homespun Turning Tools again

    I bought carbide tips on eBay & made my tools from mild steel bar. The link shows me turning with my tools in a 2 part video, you can access part 2 on the site. They really do remove the timber. You need chip deflectors. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NFF4PoPi6Wk

    Corian Box

    I turn a lot of corian & find it easy to turn. I use scrapers as these give the best finish. I turn at 3200 rpm as fastest is best. I dry sand down to 1200 at 1000 rpm then polish withT-cut & finish with burnishing cream at1500 rpm. This gives a high polish. I use the same method for making...

    How do you like yours?

    A friend of mine got bored with his sandwiches & told his wife to be inventive & use her imagination. She did & the next day he got sugarpuffs on toast. He didn't complain again.

    My Pens so far

    I make a lot of pens & use CA on timber. I always clean my timber with meths spirit to kill any oil or grease on the timber before applying the CA to stop dull spots.
