turning video
Oct 19th, 2005 at 6:19pm
 
My video came in yesterday...



"Woodturning

A foundation course"


by Keith Rowley


very informative, but one thing bothered me... at one point he said he was going to make a lamp using only one tool, a 3/8 spindle gouge.

but when he made the lamp, he used several other tools, at several different points in the project. i thought that was comical, but it had some very good points, and a couple of handy referances... i am glad i ordered the book that goes with the video, if it would just get here,

Jr.,the woodcraft store in Eugene, OR has a stock of videos that it loans/rents to customers. Check w/your store, it may have the same setup. That'll save ya a munch of boney. Grin

thats a good idea... i will be there Saturday when i go pick up my wolverine, and grinder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

maybe even the vari grind attachment if my paycheck is nice enough to me!!!


I still havta stop by my local library if i can ever find time... One of the crews at the store i work at is out, so i gotta pick up the schedule, so now i am doing the work of two crews, when my own workload was about at the max.

can't complain i guess, knowing i am starting a rather expensive hobby!!!

Jr., turning doesn't have to be expensive; it can be but not necessarily so. I just finished calculating how much my wood turning has actually cost.since 11/2001.

The amount I've spent on turning less the amount gained from the sale of turnings is $242.00, or $60.50/yr. I'd say that is more than reasonable. I also have a good supply of wood yet to turn and several pieces sitting around that haven't sold. Who knows, maybe I'll break even one day? Shocked

ok, ok, you got me...



the set up is expensive.


$125 for hand tools

$650 for lathe and chucks

$100 for grinder

$100 for wolverine.


granted, i spent more than i really had to to get set up, but i wanted to start with something worth having.


most of my turnings will be gifts, so i probably wont see a return any time soon, but thats ok. it will be well worth it when i hand my uncle a hand made chess set, or ink pen set!!!

I have spent a good bit, but so far it has all lasted and I haven't spent much after my initial outlay. It was real expensive the first year, but not much after that. Smiley

What it boils down to is, you can spend what you want to spend to do what you want to do.  You can spend a little or you can spend a lot.  Everything I own as far as wood tools is concerned;  table saw, bandsaw, grinder etc is all geared toward one thing, tha is to support my turning habit.  Have I spent a lot of money?  Yes I have. Do I regret a sngle penny of it?  NO!!

Hey Jr.
I'm not sure if you're interested in pen making, but there is a free DVD you can order from Penn State Ind.

And i realized pretty quickly that this would be a meaty investment, but once set up, it should be fairly cheap! no matter either way, im in it too deep to turn back now!



past the point of no return.


yep, no return!

Enjoy it...after setting up my PM by myself, make sure you have someone there to help unload and put it together. Save the back a little. Wink  The freight company just delieverd to the driveway. You should have seen me, peices of the lathe on the john deere, riding across the yard an into the shop, one at a time.

Really?  When they delivered mine the guy parked the semi out on the street used his tailgate lift to get it off the truck and used his pallet truck and took it straight into my garage and put it where I asked him too.  What service!!

Nope, mine was left in the driveway. The hard part was the bed. Laid it across the wagon and then scotted it one end at a time until I got it where I wanted it.

If you guys weren't so greedy and had ordered a smaller lathe like mine, you could have picked up the shipping box and carried it where ever you could think to take it.   Grin

If I'm not mistaken, UPS delivered mine and left it on my back deck.  Had it in my garage and sitting on the bench in about 5 minutes.  Took me a bit longer to build the stand and mount it. 

You guys have fun on your "big" lathes.  They are nice.  When I've saved enough pennies, I'll get my "biggin" completed.  Then we'll see who has the biggest hunger for BIG WOOD.   Wink

There is a big difference in delivery policies between the freight companies, and even differences within each company depending on locale.  It sounds like they are shifting delivery companies depending on where it goes.  Probably using the lowest cost carrier in each market.

I'm with the Rev, my bench top weighs more than my Midi. Grin
