    Finish over Sharpie

    To avoid the bleed issue all together, have you considered marking with pyrography? even if you don’t currently have a kit, the simple soldering iron type can be had for less than a tenner and hot wire kits start from about £35 for the cheap Far East machines (which are ok actually, that is...

    Turning oval knobs/handles

    I’d turn it round, then shape as you say. Could turn it with multiple centres but likely to need some hand finishing anyway and probably easiest to get closest match by disc sander anyway. If you had 100s to do then maybe different story but for a couple I’d accept the hand work path.

    Decided to include some seaweed and I think it was right decision as somehow seems to ‘pull it all together’ to my eye anyway. Next step is the fun bit - colouring in! Simon

    Carbide question

    i’ve used standard HSS on aluminium, copper and silver will good results. Something else may be going on here if you’re dulling tools quickly. also I’m not sure carbide is best choice depending on cutter geometry as it may not be as ‘sharp‘ to begin with and therefore more prone to galling up...

    ‘Seascape’ piece - wip

    New project taking shape - “seascape”. Inspired by watching a Mike Hosaluk demo and leaving it in back of my mind to muse for a year or two! So far I’ve turned a simple footed bowl (Mark Hancock - this was one of the extra pieces of wet syc’y from one of your Jamie charity days!), and...

    Some personal thoughts on the question of 'When might Woodturning Club Meetings start again'?

    Other factor that may challenge clubs is quality of AV kit - folks are now used to being able to see in great detail via a range of camera views what is going on. I’ve seen some clubs do this really well pre-COVID, others less so but I wonder if expectations will have changed now for what is...

    Air compressor won’t pressurise up - help?

    I replaced the pressure switch with the one I linked in my last message and all sorted. (as an aside, I also checked the air fittings round the workshop as I have ’plumbed it round’ - I did find one elbow with a Q/R fitting leaking due to perished o-ring so changed that too). good luck simon
