    the diamond and alloy steels to interact adversely these CBN wheels have become the grinding wheel of choice for many woodturners This follows the lessons from industry where CBN is the abrasive of choice for precision shaping and finishing operations on hardened alloy steels There are a number of reasons why CBN wheels are now held in such high regard They can be used dry without the need for coolant there is no need to apply heavy pressure with these wheels in order to sharpen woodturning tools effectively they create a very fine grind in very little time there are hardly any sparks produced and both the wheel and the tool remain cool making it unlikely that anyone with even a modicum of sharpening skill could burn or blue tools and of course the wheels never need dressing In making these superb wheels available to the home worker and small trade user The ToolPost has ensured the widest possible compatibility by making the wheels in a recessed configuration such that although the grinding face is 40 mm wide the wheel has a hub only 25 mm wide so that it directly replaces a standard 25 mm 1 wide grinding wheel Further expanding the collection of tool grinding equipment The ToolPost now stock a range of turned aluminium wheel bushes from Holzer the manufacturer of the CBN wheels themselves which may be used with the CBN wheels as well as conventional wheels giving superior wheel alignment By eliminating eccentricity in the mounting these bushes contribute to much smoother grinder operation Talk to The ToolPost about the whole range of grinding equipment suitable for sharpening woodturning tools and available from their well stocked shelves whether your need is for a grinder a grinding wheel a wheel dresser wheel balancing or sharpening jigs

  • Resolutions
    in respiratory protection resolutions regarding health and safety being of particular importance Most woodworkers are aware of the risks of an untidy workshop setting yourself a cleaning schedule could not only improve your safety but also help you make the most out of the time you spend in your workshop Sometimes people have intended for years to invest in a training course but have failed to find the time The New Year is a great time to book a training course as it gives students something to look forward to The ToolPost offers courses in woodturning wood carving and will have a new course in 2012 combining both as Carving on Turning along with a host of other skill sets Accommodation can be recommended nearby for anyone needing it and the whole experience of attending and learning more about the craft of woodworking can be a real break from the monotony of life at work or home Many New Year s resolutions are to finish a project that has been neglected or to start a new one Often craftspeople start a creative project and never finish it after investing considerable time and energy into it Sometimes it is not equipment or skills that are lacking but time itself For the busy worker or family organiser trying to find time for any hobby can be a fruitless task but a New Year s resolution can help even the busiest woodworker to schedule in leisure time January can offer an excuse to throw out the old and bring in some brand new woodcarving tools or even larger machinery such as a new woodturning lathe Why not make a list of anything that doesn t function properly in your workshop This is the first step towards replacing worn out tools Whatever your New

  • Respiratory Protection
    controlled by law The Factories Act 1961 The Health and safety at Work Act 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health or COSH regulations in 1988 all provide protection for the health of woodworkers and machiners within a working environment The people at most risk seem to be the home or hobby woodworkers who spend long periods of time in small or unsuitable spaces without proper respiratory protection dust extraction and ambient air filtration Using any type of woodworking machine such as a saw router or even lathe can produce copious amounts of dust as can using compressed air lines or sanding surfaces Even if extraction is in place emptying or changing collection bags can lead to dust spillage Although a messy workplace is dangerous the main issue for respiratory health is airborne dust particles These are the main cause of respiratory damage and are so tiny they are usually invisible to the naked eye The tried and tested JSP Power Cap Lite IP is ideal for all types of woodwork as it is lightweight and delivers convenient battery operated filtered respiratory protection to the user in one easy step As a contribution to workshop safety The ToolPost is currently offering the JSP PowerCap Lite IP at an unprecedented low price of 195 Recommended Retail Price is 231 41 and because this respirator meets the standard for safety headgear there s no VAT to pay Home woodworkers or DIY enthusiasts are likely to benefit from using a lightweight facemask as it is suitable for wear in small spaces and delivers protection from dust in unventilated conditions It is possible in certain circumstances that a high concentration of wood dust in the air can ignite and cause a fire This is a real risk for businesses and homes alike

    that the quality of some lathes being manufactured in Asia was found to be lacking The owner and proprietor of The ToolPost Peter Hemsley knew that whichever range of woodturning lathes he chose to sell would have to be one he used personally and respected Having owned and used a WivaMac DB1200 lathe for several years he knew he was more than happy to put his name to the excellence of this range of lathes The reason WivaMac lathes are pieces of equipment which are both well engineered and robustly built All eight models within the range offer a systems approach to woodturning lathe design which ensures that the lathes can be used for both bowl and spindle work as well as copy turning ornamental turning and thread cutting all on one machine something which Peter Hemsley calls a truly unique and remarkable capability This is a view shared by many in the woodturning fraternity Terry Porter reviewed the WivaMac range of woodturning lathes in Woodturning magazine and found that For the quality of design and engineering and its capacity it offers very good value for money indeed compared with the competition There was nothing that irritated me in any way The controls are well positioned it is quiet powerful and a pleasure to use If I were in the market for a replacement woodturning lathe one from the WivaMac range would certainly be one of the top contenders In The ToolPost s view the WivaMac is the main contender when it comes to lathes Find out more about each of the models within the range at the dedicated product pages of The ToolPost website at http www toolpost co uk Editor s Note The ToolPost is represented by the digital marketing specialists and SEO provider Jumping Spider Media Please
