Eccentric tailstock and fluting a turned leg

I am reproducing a Philco radio fluted leg. I have the leg turned and the flutes laid out. I have not used the eccentric feature before, but figure this is the perfect time to learn. Questions How to determine the proper eccentric offset? Any one have a design for a holder for a router to use the to...

A 5/8 unthreaded inset is a blank sleeve that has to have a set screw to hold it on the shaft. I have owned a couple of different SS's plus a variety of attachments and have yet to spot an angled set screw. Since the set screw has to be turned to be tightened it would be extremely difficult to line ...

Had a catch while turning an especially gnarly oak knuckle and blew out the side of the support arm. I still won! It's a bowl now!

Have a monster lathe now so I won't be putting stubborn stuff on the SS anymore.

Stumbled on your Windsor chair pic and thought the background looked familiar. I'm by Henry Horton.

Awesome Fluting jig

Just used it for 16 fluted panels. Smooth as silk and could be used one handed easily! $10 for hardware. I started to buy the $70 fluting jig from Rockler for a 21' bookcase/cabinet set that I am building then spotted plans for this jig and decided I might like it better. It has a fixed fence and an...

Route an oversized slot in board using a round nose bit, then glue in a strip of sandpaper. Chuck dowel in the drill press and sand to rounded shape. I would first chamber on the disk sander to save wear on your paper during the final shaping.

Identify this SS item

Spotted an SS with an accessory that I can't identify, but has several things that I would like to have. Already have one up for sale from my last hopefully free upgrade to my keeper. Trying to decide if I want to pop on this one for more upgrades. To what is the saw blade attached? I can go with He...

Very interesting, but garly piece of oak that even defied the Easy Wood carbide tools. The Sorby Ultima conquered it in the end. The thing about cast parts is that they fatique and give up the ghost sometimes. I have the universal tool rest so I am not down, but I really like to use the regular tool...
