I did a little shopping today, and now I have to get the shop cleaned up so I can use some new toys...
Went to woodcraft and picked up their sanding pad set and some extra 'wavy' sanding disks. Not a great deal on the sanding set, but hey, it had everything I needed, so I got it.
Picked up a Sorby Multi Hollowing tool and a little dovetail scraper. I got the straight shaft one. Not sure why, just figured it might have more uses for the time being than the goose neck, and Might be a little easier to learn with. I also got the dovetail scraper because it wasn't that much, and it matches the chuck I've got.
Also got a spare belt for the lathe, and a 1"x8"tpi tap so I can make some disposable face plates for the lathe. The tap might come in handy too for when I decide to cobble together a vacuum chucking system.
At Harbor freight they had 2 varieties of the close quarter drill. The Orange and the Grey. The orange was 29 bucks. The grey had a keyless chuck and was 39 bucks. I broke down and bought the grey.
Also stopped by lowes and picked up a kerosene heater and some kerosene, for when it starts to get cold out in the shop. I figured since we are in an all electric house, it can double as our emergency heater for if the power goes out.
And Finally, a picture of my lathe and stand covered in shavings to show I've actually be playing with things out there. Nothing to show for the last week, but I'm working on it....
