Turning a tool handle

I needed a handle for a new 1/2" spindle gouge so I ran the camera while I was making it.  If you want to be able to view in full screen mode the playlist is at:  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

Another great job, Bob. smiley=thumbsup.gif Thanks for taking the time and making the effort. Your production quality is much better than a lot of the turning videos out there.

BTW, I've noticed that the actor in all your videos has a Canadian accent, eh? What's that all aboot? Grin (I have no room to talk. My accent is a hodgepodge of surfer boy/redneck/geek with a dash of Spanish tossed in for good measure.) Roll Eyes Cheesy

Keep up the good work.   Wink

Hello Bob,
  I have really enjoyed your videos. I download them so I can watch multiple times when doing projects. How do you like your tool rest? It appears to put the fulcrum closer to the work than the normal tool rest. Is the curve in the rest shallow enough so your hands are not rubbing the rest?

Thanks, all.

Skip, I do prefer the shape of the Oneway rest over the Nova rest.  It does move the fulcrum closer to the work and the top surface is angled so shavings slide off.  The Nova rest that I have (hopefully they have re-designed it) has the top surface flat so shavings tended to pile up and not fall off on their own.  The large Oneway rest is also about 2" longer than my Nova rest which comes in handy sometimes.  I don't notice any problem with the curve.  It provides a nice smooth surface to run my knuckle along when I am trying to turn a straight surface and doesn't get in the way when I am turning curves. 
The main reason I bought the Oneway rests is because there is some offset forward of the tool post.  The Oneway banjo is solid as a rock but all that extra thickness around the tool post hole sometimes gets in the way. 

Take care
Bob

Bob,
Another great video.   The only thing I saw that I would have done differently, would have been to use a spare ferrule to help seat the first one.    That was a nice-looking mallet, by the way.

Thanks bob for the great videos, I missed what type of glue you are using to put the gouge into the handle.

Hi, Greg:
I used medium cyanoacrylate on this one, but I have also used 5 minute epoxy on some.  It seems to be holding up fine.

Take care
Bob
