did they offer light at the end of the tunnel.

i have a bit of root from a holly tree on the lathe at the moment. i think it's actually kryptonite, not holly, i don't recall ever turning anything as hard as this.

They offered a Nova SN with a na adaptor that has to be passed on to someone else
for machining to fit my lathe. More messing.

Making inquiries now on a Vicmark or Oneway chuck, thats all ready to fit.

I turned loads of holly years back, but not the root.

All above ground holly was as soft as butter, and very unstable.

Current methgd of holding is a 3 jaw chuck backplate, screwed to the bowl base.
For obvious reasons its totally unsuitable, but all I have at the moment.

Contacted by Dave Chapman Mytools.ie.

He says he has never heard of M39 4 pitch, so he cannot help.

I’ve a slab of Irish Yew that I’m in the middle of making into a coffee table. I’m just wondering what’d be the best finish for it?

Last piece of yew sculpture i worked on I gave it 8 coats of danish oil, wiped on.

I think it enriches the grain very well.

Wipe on plenty. Leave it for 10 minutes, and wipe off excess.
Leave it in a warm room for 3 hours, and apply another coat, leave for 10 minutes, and wipe off excess.
leave in a warm room for 12 hours, and apply another coat, not excessively.
Leave for 12 hours and apply another coat, not excessively, rinse repeat every 12 hours as desired.

Yes its danish oil only on that piece, and if you are polishing yew, you should get a similar finish after 7-8 coats.

But other timbers may require more coats, depending on density of timber.

What are you polishing??

So I've got a mitre saw on the way and have a question I probably already know the answer to but just want confirmation. It's billed as a 254mm which is 10 inch. Now the first thing I want to do is change the 24 tooth blade because I think that's pointless (geddit?) on a mitre saw. But as I'm browsing replacement blades, 10 inch blades in Europe seem to go anywhere from 250-255mm.

Question is, I'm good to get anything in that range right?

Personally I would try to stay as close as possible to manufacturers recommended blade & kerf size, my thinking would be that it would be best to use a similar blade to what the saws motor rating, torque and rpm were designed for. 1-2 mm either way should not make much of a difference, I would try and keep the kerf size the same.


If the saw manufacturer is a bit saucy on the pricing, there are plenty of third party manufacturers like Trend and Freud etc, that would have an exact match of a blade. Have a look here.
