  • Dust Extraction
    of using a chip extractor that the systems which pass the waste through the impeller have an irritating habit of blocking all too frequently I can honestly say that in two years I have only rarely experienced a blocked hose on my Camvac system and I use it for vacuuming out the workshop floor with all of its shavings too The machine that we feature above is the best selling Camvac CGV286W which is conveniently wall mounted as illustrated and will ably cope with the needs of the average small workshop I use mine to provide extraction to my lathe bandsaw and sander and building an efficient extraction system with the components available from Camvac is child s play rather like big boys Lego in fact High capacity floor mounted bin style models are also available and these are listed below the GV336 a typical example is illustrated right These larger units can be equipped with additional motors creating double and even triple motor systems of enormous suction capacity The filtration efficiency remains as excellent as the wall mounted model featured above with filtration through the triple stage system down to 0 5 micron particle size The toolkits and accessories listed above are also compatible with these machines A specification table comparing their various features is provided towards the end of this page Industrial users in particular should please note that the duty cycle should not exceed two hours on followed by at least twenty minutes off For accessories to help you pipe up a complete dust extraction system see the page entitled CamVac Accessories Please note that CamVac extractors are supplied without any hose as standard enabling you to contruct a system to meet your own specific requirements Camvac Specifications Model Drum Capacity Drum Dimensions ht x dia Weight

    this sound advice is then put to good use through three projects a candlestick a pen and a bowl that show that this guy is no mean theorist If you are just getting started or if you fancy a refresher course before taking your next leap forward in the adventure which is woodturning then this DVD is well worth a look The Turn It Up boxed set of three DVDs show a range of projects including a maple coloured form a top hat turned in cherry a natural edge bowl in acacia burr a lidded burr box and a combination of skills demonstrated when adding a spun silver insert into a mallee burr turning But what makes these DVDs special is the extra curricula activities which Jimmy brings into the program a visit to the huge timber facility of Theo Nagel in Germany a feature on production turning in an English factory and the other side of Jimmy when he takes us for a round of golf to demonstrate how to make a golf tee These programs take the foundation work shown in his earlier videos a step further with ever more interesting demanding and stunning work The Turn It On boxed set again comprises three DVDs each complete in itself with a range of sections covering both projects and tec hniques as well as an insight into the broader aspects of a professional turner s life The Turnaround presentation covers spindle work tool sharpening end grain work box making and a superb demonstration of creating a stunning large diameter platter which he then colours beautifully For those who wonder I have Jimmy s word that the impressive apparently endless ribbon like shaving pictured flying off his gouge on the front cover of the T urnaround DVD is entirely genuine Having many times worked alongside Jimmy and watched his demonstrations in the flesh I have every reason to believe it is true Of course if he was a real turner he would have made it fly across the room in the shape of his signature obviously he was not concentrating that day Oh oh sorry Jimmy I ve just realised that IS your signature For my own part I like the fact that Jimmy uses WivaMac lathes and does an excellent job of showing what superb machines these are for serious turners and those with serious ambition And just to show that we can all fall prey to conceit I am most enthusiastic about Volume 1 of Turn It On because it includes footage of your truly at the WivaMac Open Doors event where Jimmy and I worked together Bask in the glow NB Prices quoted in pounds sterling Value Added Tax will be added to invoices to EU residents Mike Mahoney Heirlooms Making Things That Last On the McNaughton Centre Saver From the Tree to the Table Bowl Basics Hollow Forms and Urns Workshop Two Guys Two Lathes Two Approaches with Stuart Batty If you have ever been privileged and I use that word quite knowingly and deliberately to see a demonstration by Mike Mahoney then you will know what the word accomplished truly means Not only is Mike a superb and skilled and left handed turner but is also an excellent presenter whose easy friendly supportive attitude shines through ever scene of these DVDs The most recent addition to this excellent line up of education on DVD is Heirlooms in which Mike affords the viewer a priviliged insight into his approach to turning bowls platters and containers This production covers all aspects from identifying and harvesting the timber rough turning drying and subsequent turning to the finished form These are products that find use in everyday life which is surely where our wooden artefacts should find their role They are likewise that are part of our shared history and culture Take a look at how a master approaches the subject and be inspired For anyone who owns or is thinking of buying a McNaughton Centre Saver Mike s production showing its safe and efficient use is a revelation If you own the tool you really need the video I thought I had been using the McNaughton system for long enough to know how to use it but Mike gave me so much food for thought and improved my use of the tool out of all recognition as well as taking all of the fear and trepidation out of the process Mike is above all a bowl turner indeed his email address is bowlturner so I guess we shouldn t be too surprised to find two excellent presentations of bowl maker s skills included in this series In Bowl Basics Mike covers all that one might need to know to create beautiful and functional vessels from wood He does so with the eloquent skill of someone who turns bowls by the thousand for Mike Mahoney is a production bowl turner and truly makes his living by creating beautifully turned objects that the public clamour to buy and does so at a rate and in a manner that supports himself and family There are turners who make their living by turning hollow forms and some of them seem to go out of their way to make it look difficult so that you are less tempted to challenge their skill one might suppose Mike Mahoney s approach is very different and in this Hollow Forms Urns Mike reveals all of his tricks and trade secrets enabling you to aspire to become a great turner of hollow forms too NB Prices quoted in pounds sterling Value Added Tax will be added to invoices to EU residents Portrait of an Artist Series by Bernard Blain Katia TV These DVDs created by a skilled professional TV producer show how turned wooden objects or artefacts can easily rise to the status of high art What really strikes me about these DVDs is that they are inspirational as distinct from instructional For sure these are not

    sharp throughout As a fellow turner said to me when I first used this tool it was the sharpest gouge I had ever used after using it for three days it is still the sharpest gouge I have ever used and he was a highly skilled turner of long experience and demanding standards The handles fitted to these superior and generously long blades are sculpted from solid billets of aircraft grade aluminium to a perfectly balanced hand fitting form adorned with a double ring of refined knurling to give a great tactile feel and fitted with two set screws which enable the blades to be securely locked in place And these people are so justifiably proud of what they achieve they sign every one with their company name engraved in beautiful script right down the handle The attention to detail of Carter Son Toolworks is such that the blades bear milled flats to correspond precisely with the lockscrew positions so that there is no chance of raising a burr on the shaft when locking the screws down A nice touch after nice touch after We offer both bowl and spindle gouges from Carter and Son the bowl gouges being ground with a Celtic grind Because these gouges are manufactured across the pond in the US of A their sizing is based on US practice where folk mean what they say Hence a 3 8 Carter gouge measures 3 8 diameter regardless of whether it is a bowl gouge or a spindle gouge likewise 1 2 Carter tools are made from 1 2 bar and you ve guessed it the 5 8 tools are made from 5 8 bar Wouldn t it be easier if we all used that system UK are you listening Carter Sons Bowl Spindle Gouges Carter Sons

  • German Finishes
    the Magic Dragon is one of your friends then this may work to stop his joints creaking or even to prolong his life D M also from Germany provide a range of finishing products that address areas of finishing perhaps not well covered by other products Foremost is an excellent polymeric Pen Finish which is easy to apply involves no magic potions satanic rites or other antics but is simply wiped on to the rotating wooden pen components to create a lustrous hard wearing finish in seconds The dry finish max 10 minutes drying time resists sweat scratching impact and abrasion and is both water and UV resistant Being crystal clear it will not alter the colour of the underlying timber A more glossy finish can be achieved by building multiple coats if required Most turners have from time to time tried to turn timber which is past its best usually because there is some figuring usually spalting in the timber that is just too good to miss Equally most of us have discovered what a disappointment such escapades can turn out to be D M produce a possible solution Wood Hardener which soaks into the timber dries and leaves a firmer surface which cuts more cleanly than rotted punky old timber It is also a sanding sealer being spirit based and can be used as such The hardener is applied liberally to the timber using a paintbrush and allowed to dry for ten to twenty minutes dependent upon absorbency of the timber after which it can be cut as normal with sharp tools or sanded Carnauba wax is a favourite finish for many turners but we are usually familiar with applying it as a solid bar rubbed onto the rotating timber or maybe as the final coat in a

  • Adhesives
    of other excellent adhesive products that come well recommended The flexible superglue listed below is excellent for use on repair and assembly jobs where the workpiece may be subject to vibration or a degree of flexure Unlike conventional superglues this one does not cure to a brittle glassy consistency but it certainly sticks like superglue For the general joinery trade Gorilla Wood Glue has been introduced providing a strong waterproof bond between both hardwoods and softwoods Non toxic and resistant to solvents and mildew attack Gorilla Wood glue is a very practical solution for a range of household repair and building projects Excess glue can be cleaned up using water before the glue starts to cure Creates a strong tack in around 20 minutes clamp time and develops full bond strength in 24 hours Finally there s the maid of all work duct tape NB not Duck Tape it was originally developed for sealing ducts not securing ducks Being by Gorilla this one is a super tape capable of securing almost anything inside or out It will bond to brick plaster and rough timber thanks to its extra thick glue layer that fills the gaps on rough surfaces The reinforced backing gives the product real structural strength under tension loads Available in a choice of widths and roll lengths the Ultimate Duct Tape Titebond Glues The Titebond range of adhesives has long been firm and well deserved favourite in the US market What a pity they can t spell as well as they make adhesives The range covers most of the well known and well tried glue formulations plus some rather special products proprietary to the company What follow is a brief summary of the range available from the ToolPost Titebond Polyurethane Liquid Glue is a brown liquid glue which dries yellow and features a very useful combination of long open time 20 minutes to allow workpiece positioning combined with a very short 45 minute clamp time Excess glue can be sanded when dry or removed with spirit solvent when still wet Joints must be clamped during initial cure This versatile adhesive will bond metals ceramics many plastics Corian TM stone and other materials as well as wood Aliphatic resin adhesives are ideal for gluing wood hardboard chipboard MDF and OSB Titebond Original Wood Glue is an aliphatic resin glue which creates a bond stronger than the timber itself Excess glue can be removed with a damp cloth prior to cure May be applied to large surfaces using a roller or brush Initial tack is strong and curing is fast this makes it ideal for joints where parts need to be tacked in place as soon as their surfaces touch PVA glue is well known in many woodworking applications and Titebond II Premium Wood Glue is an excellent and economic example of the type This is a waterproof version of this adhesive type offering strong initial tack 5 mins and fast cure 15 min assembly time It is suitable for indoor and outdoor use though it should not be used in conditions of continuous submersion in water Excess glue is easily cleaned up with a damp cloth prior to cure Anything called Ultimate is giving itself a lot to live up to That hasn t stopped Titebond giving that moniker to their Titebond III Ultimate Wood Glue The formulation is a proprietary matter but it creates a strong non toxic solvent free adhesive that is approved by the FDA in the US for use in indirect food contact for instance in chopping boards The glue features fast tack 10 minute open time and rapid cure 30 minutes total assembly time Although waterproof but not for continuous immersion the glue cleans up with a damp cloth when wet Finally if you need an adhesive that creates a less visible glue line on darker timbers there is Titebond Dark Wood Glue Basically this is a dyed version of Titebond II Wood Glue with similar characteristics but marginally reduced mechanical properties in the cured joint Urea Formaldehyde Powder Resin Glue Back in the days when I built boats this was one of our favourite adhesives Low cost easy to mix and use high strength water resistant and with low creep it really is a good adhesive for joinery that goes beyond DIY in my opinion If you are into laminating timber then this is an excellent adhesive to use PVA Aliphatic resin and similar polymer adhesives are no good for this application as they allow the timber to creep under load eventually your bent wood furniture becomes a stack of laths A degree of care is required in use so do read and follow the H S advice on the pack but I still rate this as a good all round high strength adhesive If you fondly remember Cascamite and are bemused by what marketing genius decided to re christen it Extramite then you may be interested to know that those excellent adhesives albeit no longer with us I believe were urea formaldehyde preparations just like the one listed here PVA Wood Glues Modern PVA glue white glue is strong simple effective and dries transparently Excess glue is easily removed with a damp cloth before drying PVA is an acronym for Poly Vinyl Acetate the basis of these very versatile glues We offer a choice of glues of this type to suit different types of work Bison Super Wood D3 is a waterproof PVA which can be used on parts which are subject to water immersion and thus is suitable for both external and internal use especially in damp humid places such as kitchens and bathrooms The open time is about 3 minutes giving ample time to align parts which should then be clamped together for 30 60 minutes to allow initial curing to take place The resultant joint made according to the directions supplied with the product is stronger than the timber which it bonds Supplied in handy 75 g 250 g
