Turning in 1926
Jul 8th, 2012 at 6:31pm
 
Hi,
just wanted to share a video i like watching of woodturning in germany in 1926. mostly it is remarkably similar to today apart from the sharpening anyway

I know there are a few unsafe things in it, but lets see if anyone can spot them. and yeah i did read Rons' safety lecture.

A very nice video and a great craftsman .He is turning Lime-linden (Tilia ) I guess.

The thing I noted the first time I saw it is that he uses very shallow gouges for hollowing bowls.

yeah, the old tools were forged from a flat piece of steel, not the milled out bar there is today.

Using a roughing gouge on a bowl.  Bowl gouges probably not invented yet.  Sanding with the tool rest in place not a good idea.  Could use a face shield.  He had one minor catch using the interesting hook tool.  Really a nice project though.  Not much has really change in almost a century though.  The sharpening looked to be on a large wet stone.  Not unlike the sickle sharpener we had in the ranch workshop.  Tormek didn't invent it I guess.

It`s not a Roughing gouge,It`s a traditional gouge(spindle).
It`s from a time where traditional bowl turners (pole lathes,hook tools,bowl coring  and foot powered lathes)were desapearing ,before electrical powered lathes ,hollowing a dry chunk of wood to make a bowl was nor common.

I was amused when he paused to put on his glasses.

Great video and nice to see techniques used then are still pretty much used today, we just have a greater variation of tools at our disposal.  Shows that we are keeping history alive Smiley

Normal production turner safety issues with adjusting toolrest whilst lathe still turning, sanding inside bowl with toolrest in place etc

I liked that he was wearing his vest and pocket watch, not exactly what most of us would wear while turning in 2012.

This is now my favorite youtube video of all time. There is nothing in it that I don't like. Old machines. Good music, woodturning, and even food at the end! What a great viedo Wow, thanks for sharing.

Items that I noted: Started with sharp tools. Wet grinding. Stopped to put on his safety glasses. That was as good as it got for that day. Each time I see it, I want to make a lidded bowl like that. Reminds me, I could make a cover for one of the ones I'm turning now.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes  Glenn J.
