new smock gloat
Aug 29th, 2009 at 7:20pm
 
well its not a new tool gloat however my wife is currently making me a woodworking smock.  It will be similar to a lab coat with sleeves (my arms are always coated in shavings and im not the least hairy guy in the world if you know what I mean so its not cool), and made from a khaki colored denim.  Its going to be great!

Hope she doesn't put pockets on the front.  They would fill up with wood chips.

I didnt think about the pockets, and I definitely should have... bang head bang head bang head

Its funny because when turning this afternoon I wore a t-shirt with a pocket on the front and it filled up with shavings.  Then, at the fabric store, I saw the lab coat pattern and thought WOW that is awesome, "thats the one I want."  I guess some things take me longer to realize. 

I asked her to put a small flap over the bottom pockets so that should help.  Ill leave the top pocket because I want a place for my pencil.

Id shave my arms but thats just too much work.  lol, besides all my friends would know that I did since they know me.  Usually I take my shop vac to the arms (I know it sounds ridiculous but it works) and its much better than just dusting off.  Wow, I cant believe how weird this sounds.  I cant be the only one though that has to go through this when turning right???  What do my other fellow coated turners do?  lol

Use an air compressor after turning.  Just blow the dust off your arms, clothes, shoes, and Smiley hair.  And if you wear sandals, they don't fill with chips.

I also use the vacuum all over me after i'M DONE.

You could have your wife do it this way instead put the pockets in the back so they won't get covered with chips. I also would suggest you add a couple of pen/pencil poskets on one of the arms.

Under Armour tee shirts are the best thing I found for turning.  The chips does not stick to it and the collar is tight enough to stop chips from falling down my neck.

+1 on the Under Armour, especially in the heat of Florida. I did have a hard time justifying $25 for a T-shirt but it is worth it.

I use the cheapest (and toughest) solution for removing chips - I brush myself down with the head of a yard brush.  Us Irish boys are as hard as nails.

Pencil pockets on the arm is an AMAZING idea.  Then it will have a nifty work look to it.  I also like the back pocket idea.  Well my wife is going to kill me because I keep changing my mind but thats ok.  lol

LOL.  Its good to know.  Shes super frustrated because of sewing machine difficulties.  I showed her the pics on this thread and got the "are you SURE thats what you want now" look...  We were up till 3 trying to get a tiny screw stuck inside and then we couldnt reassemble it.  It really made church this morning rough.  lol.  I told her to see if WR had a sister forum for sewers but I doubt it would be as cool.

These are the shirts that most baseball, football and soccer players were under their uniforms. They wicke moisture away from the body which cools you in the summer and warms in the winter.

You can get them at most any sporting goods outlet.  Dick's, Sport Authority and Hibbett's would have them.  Maybe even Walmart.

I use compressed air to blow the dust and chips off my clothes, hair and skin. You should be careful, though, about where you aim the air nozzle. Watch the ears and eyes in particular. A blast of air can damage an eardrum or blow chips or dust into your eyes.

What Jim said is Very true and you can get the Armour tee shirts at Walmart in the sporting good, hunting dept. or if you know someone in the Guards, they use them now as well, they might be able to pick up a couple from supply.

And Chuck, this is what happens if you use compressed air to clean out the cobwebs:

Compressed air, vacuums, brushes,......hmmmpff.
I just step outside and dive into the pool and let the pool skimmer clean up the wood chips. A little bit brisk in winter, but hey we're MEN right!

Pocket flaps are a must. My favorite woodworking apron has the convenient pockets that get dutifully full of chips each time I turn.

Since I was welding for awhile and decided to stop, I still had my welding smock.  Works great for turning except I have to put a rubber band around the cuff so it isn't loose.

Hey, I hear ya about the shavings sticking to your fur. Have the same problem.  If your wife has a pattern for the smock, would it be possible to buy a copy or something.
Just getting started in the wood turning thing.  Sure making a lot of chips and enjoying it. Smiley

I normally just brush the chippings off with a razer sharp machete, works very well and turns it into saw dust in the process, we're tough on the Devils island you know. Angry

I wear mine upside down, to stop pockets filling up with shavings. smiley=shake head.gif

Is this under armor below your over shoulder ????.  Cheesy

Sorry the pills are wearing off !!!!!!!! Shocked

I whizzed through it hoping to see ears and noses and lips falling to the floor but I was hugely disappointed.

If you did turning in the nude...ahhh never mind!

Just invested $315 in a Jet 1100 cfm dust collector, on wheels.

Best investment EVER. Made a hood for the lathe (and other shop tools), no dust!

Hi guys!  Sorry I havent been on much.  Ive been swamped with school and have actually only turned 2 pens since Summer which kills me because when I did turn those 2 pens 2 nights ago I found that I was getting a bit rusty and didnt feel as confident with my turning.

Unfortunately since my wife is also swamped with school she hasnt finished the smock yet.  She did remeasure it tonight with me (which is an interesting coincidence) and im hoping to have it just after the new year.

Hope everyone is doing well and has a wonderful Christmas!  I have to say I really miss turning and cant wait to get more work done.  I just have to get school out of the way first.
