    Ned,
    Carefully scoop those shavings up and put them in a jar - put the jar in a special place. Maybe they'll have baby shavings like the last two dollars at the Bailey Building & Loan Association!

    Good to see!

    Well guys,
    That was truly just a test run. I can't let the lathe get in the way of the shop completion, I've got a firm date to clear my storage unit, and I've got a ton of juggling to do before I'm done.
    I also need to get my turning tools tuned up, and/or pick up a bowl gouge, I only have two spindle gouges in this set at the shop, which I believe are just HF HSS tools.


    that's how both of the gouges were sharpened, and while they cut, I was very aware of those points out there just waiting to catch.

    I do have another set of tools, carbon steel ones which are over at Mark's shop, that set has a bowl gouge, so I guess I'll be going to Oneida at some point.

    I also got my bandsaw up from the storage unit, and man that sucker is Heavy. Sean whom I indirectly bought the saw from built a Massive base for it out of MDF.

    I got that up and running as well last night, and it works like a charm. I will need to pick up a couple more blades, time for a call to Suffolk, but that will have to wait for another paycheck.

    another new tool in the shop is this generic little grinder, price was perfect: Free

    I need to get a finer grit wheel to replace that wire wheel, but it works just fine.
