    Easy Wood Tools Article

    Just thought I'd share a link to a nice article by Robin Costelle on the WoodturnersAmerica.org site about the Easy Wood Tools, including their new hollower.

    FWIW, the name of the American Woodturners websites have been changed to Woodturners America to protect the litigious.

    OOooppss, that was "Rough Rider."

    Anyway, a very nice gentleman sent me $250.oo for doing him a favor. It was a favor, I expected no material compensation. So, I am going to order my first Easy Rider woodturning tool. The one I used at Vaughn's sold me. The extra money actually $old me. (Craig should send Vaughn a commission.)

    My lathe bench is finally ready. It is useable. However, I do have to wire in my emergency turn-off switch tomorrow. Went to the BORG for an extension cord to amputate and use as a power cord...The price was triple Harbor Freight and BORG was 18 ga, Harbor Freight 14 ga.

    The downside is the HF cord is bright green. I guess the bright green is visual stimulus to keep me on my safety toes. Anyway, my lathe bench is truly a Larry M. special (If in doubt, build it stout.). I don't know what it weighs; I do know that it has not even thought of vibrating.

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    I have a photo Glenn said I must post. It was drilling a lathe mounting hole while the lathe was in position. Photo will appear soon.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    I do not have the hollowing tool from Craig but I do have a couple of the Ci1's and I really enjoy using them...............
    First you have to learn the rules - Beginner
    Then you have to learn advanced rules - Professional
    Then you disregard the rules - This takes you to the master level................

    Hey Jim, you asked me a while back what tool we were using on the pendants, and I told you we were using the Ci1 Easy Rougher. I was mistaken...we were using the smaller version, the Ci2m Mini Rougher. Craig makes three sizes, the Ci1 (big), the Ci2 (medium), and the Ci2m (small). We were using the small one. That one or the medium-sized Ci2 would be great with your midi lathe. The full-size Ci1 would also work fine, but might be bigger than you need.

    Looking forward to seeing pics of that lathe bench.

    Hey Jim, if you're looking for it, I moved your post and pics of the bench to this thread. I figured it'd get better exposure that way.
