All the best for today.

Yes, thank you Lance for organising the Zoom.

It was good to put a face to a name and good to catch up with Matt (Simplicity) and Tony (NCArcher) again. I will have to be more prepared on future occasions and bring more props into the house (Can't do that in Canberra I hear). Matt put me to shame giving panoramic views of the steel castle and all therein. I guess that is where a mobile phone has it all over even a very smart carrier pigeon. :rolleyes: At least I am indulging (reluctantly) in pay wave now instead of inserting courtesy of the Virus and in attempting not to contact hard surfaces. I am being dragged into the 21st century kicking and screaming despite my best efforts. Resistance is futile!

Our expensive photocopier once again refused to work :(( so I was unable to print up any pix of the work on the handwheel as it had progressed. Some info here:

Sorry for the late response to the suggestions provided in trying to make dowels for use in my drawbored M&Ts.

I added several intermediate sizes to my plate, and relieved the back.

When trying the lathe as suggested by orraloon it would work for some "blanks", but more often than not the tortional forces would tear the blank when reducing in size. It also took a while figuring out a method of holding a 7x7 mm blank.

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200607/560bb8ccf3881e086413225059a477a0.jpg

Then I recalled a thread by, I think, Auscab about creating dowels, so had a crack at creating a quasi pencil sharpener jig. That was a great success. I could create a dowel in about 20 seconds, including mounting in the drill. Very fast and consistent.

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200607/7a1cfa5c19a1d5f081c35ed650d610f4.jpg.

That left me with plenty of stock which I could cut to length as needed.

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200607/072133958426e9bd6e59a08f0d97f3ee.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200607/151b5b14b449fee61946d7147160763b.jpg

Thanks for all the advice. Without the prompt at lateral thinking I would have spent half the day trying to hammer stock through my make shift plate.

Simplicity

Fantastic results, but Iím glad you quickly got over the idea of holding a chunk of metal, an trying to stop the rotational force of the lathe,Iím pretty sure you are the same as us flesh.

Another day of trying to get the Old Fruit-bat (AKA Mother-in-law) settled into an aged care facility in Benalla.

That's a five-hour round trip from home plus time on the ground there which includes a meeting with Administration at 11am.

I doubt I will get anything else done that day.

The miniature carving starts at the 5min 42sec mark if anybody wishes to go straight there. I don't wish to go into hyperbole so I will restrict my comment to wonderous: However, if I was a carver, and confronted with such a work I would throw all my tools into the fire and restrict my efforts to stone masonry and replicas of Stonehenge.

I have a fighting chance of being there (possibly a few minutes late) this week. :2tsup:

Unfortunately I have no resident elves in my shed, but i do occasionally get visited by a grey cat called Mango who lives diagonally across the back corner behind the shed. I encourage Mango to visit because he crawls around under my shelves discouraging the mice. He usually nicks off as soon as I start a power tool so I doubt he would have the skills to finish any projects for me. :no:

Hi All,

Tomorrow's topic is about the challenges of dust management. It doesn't matter whether you keep a Chinese fan handy in your apron pocket to blow away the dust, or have a huge ducted cyclone setup, I'm sure we all have that one tricky operation we hate doing because it throws dust everywhere. What is your dust generating kryptonite? Perhaps someone will have a solution. Feel free to share a photo or two of the issue you face.

Any and all are most welcome to join in.

Hi All,

It sounds like last week's prattle was a good topic, and sorry I missed it. I could certainly do with more low cost or free wood.

This week's topic: If you had the opportunity to run a half day workshop for fellow weekend warrior woodworkers, what knowledge or skill would you share. You don't have to be an expert, think "in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king".

Even if you have just started woodworking a month ago, your topic could be: "Creative ways of transporting timber in a Fiat 500".

So, get your thinking caps on, and tell us what you've got.

P.S. I'm a little unsure how I should take Paul's Anchor Man label ;)

That is a most interesting subject that should appeal to the charlatans and cognoscenti among us. Regrettably, or in my case maybe luckily, I can't make tomorrow. I wll look at the thread later to see what jewels were discussed.

As to how you should take the "Anchor Man" label, make sure you remove it when swiming.

Paul

Thanks everyone for the chat today. It was both entertaining and informative.

Next week I will try to log on through my shed computer if I can. Wifi is a bit thin out there but I can get it to play youtube music while I work so it might support Zoom if I am lucky.

Hoping to do it by shed-cam because my workbench https://www.woodworkforums.com/f213/overdue-workbench-build-216908/10#post2204931 will be finished by then and I can't invite everyone over for a party so the best I can do is share on Zoom.

See you all next week.

I'll echo Doug's comments. Thanks Paul and Pagie for your insights, I certainly learned a lot today.

Yes, it was a good hook up. This is the link to the Spotted Gum (https://www.woodworkforums.com/f132/bandsawing-spotted-gum-170760) that was sawn a few years back now.

As Pagie said, it makes a mess of the ground (carved up and sawdust etc). Not really viable without specialised equipment. I will take some pix if I can of my chainsaw mill later in the week and post here, but I think the Alaskan style chainsaw mills are easier for most people. Just to summarize some of our comments today, You really need a saw that will run a 26" bar as a minimum. In practice this means a saw of about 70cc and upwards. Just use a standard semi chisel chain sharpened at a normal angle (30 degrees.) A lesser angle will give a smoother cut but cutting will be slower.

Have a look on the small timber milling section of the Forum. There are plenty of examples there. These were the logs I mentioned in the chat.

Hi All,


The topic for discussion will be carving. Share your experience with those of us who have never tried it. If you have some carving tools bring them along to show.

I look forward to seeing any and all tomorrow :)
