    Homemade coring rig video

    This looks pretty cool...wonder how hard it would be to make? Wish there were some close up shots.

    Thanks for the link, Jeff. That's an awesome setup.

    Whenever I see a woodworker with a bandage on his hand like he has on his thumb it makes me wonder if/when my turn is going to come.
    Just makes me remember to be a bit more careful.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Cool! Is that similar to how other coring systems work? I've never seen one in action before.

    I thought the same thing Gord.

    Barry, I haven't seen one in action either, but I think it's basically the same. I'm not sure others hold the cored part in place once it is free...I've seen vids of cores flying out across the room.

    I posted that on Wood turners resource. It looks fairly simple to make. Some steel strapping rolled in some slip rolls or formed around some pipe. I plan on tackling that project after I finish my carbide scrapers, steel snake, and new lathe bench. So it will be a while, but it shouldn't be too hard if you have any sort of fabrication knowledge. Stu could whip it up in an afternoon.

    Stephen,
    Look into Hughes Net... might solve your problem... may be costly, but it's supposed to be high speed.

    I saw it on WR too, but it's a cool setup. Looks like a fun project for someone with the tools to make one.

    The Oneway coring system (and one other whose name escapes me) use a similar method with the fixed pivot point and uniform "cereal bowl" knife radius. The McNaughton system is a bit different...the pivot point is variable (very variable) and the knives have a much broader range of curves available. The people I know who have used both types have said the Oneway is easier to use, but the McNaughton rig is more flexible in terms of the forms you can create.

    Thanks for the post on this forum.. What a sore thumb that guy has ..

    I guess I would have seen it on the WR forum when I was active there. Now I am banned and can not participate. Would like to know what rule I broke.
