Did you get a haircut?

This seems to be the question to ask when ther's something different but you're not sure what it is.
So, what's different, what turning tools, methods, wood or products are you using this year that you weren't a year ago? Did you get a new lathe, a new gouge, a new stash of wood, or find a different method of finishing.

QOTW
What's different about your turning univers now than it was a year ago?

No, I haven't lost weight, but thank you for asking!! Smiley

Actually, I DID go out and buy new air hose nozzles. The old one was sticking so I just replaced both in the shop.

Oh... I ALSO cleaned off the tablesaw outfeed table!! It had become my dump everything on it place and I was having to take too much time to move things around to cut a board.

I bought a McNaughton coring set. Haven't used it yet. Need to ream out my banjo to 1 inch. Got a Grizzly. Oh, have a CBN wheel also.

Hhm, not much new here really that I can think of except maybe experimenting with finishes. I’ve recently tried Acrylic paint and patinating wax. Next up is a burnt and gilt cream tool handle as demoed by Jimmy Clewes on YouTube.  Wink

I also bought another grinder motor.. a 1hp Rikon with some finer grit CBN wheels as well as another motor to dedicate to a Beale buffing station.

Both sit on the work table, not set up yet..waiting for after xmas framing season so I have time to figure out where they will go.

REALLY need to work ON the shop as well as IN the shop!!

I made a center finder.  I make  wooden spinning tops for Christmas.  Cheap stocking stuffers.   The center isn't always at the pith.  This tool saves time  finding center of not so round branches, which i use to make tops.

A few months ago I got into carbides, and , oh do I enjoy them

I meet a friend for lunch every week, and some time I have to be a little late because I do get a haircut,,,,Of course, I tell him I am late because I spent some time in a woman’s arms.
