Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Pledge: Wood Turning

From London Hackspace Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

We are looking at purchasing wood turning equipment for the space.

Pledge opened: 21 Mar 14

The intention will be for most of the parts which require care and attention (the chisels which need sharpening) to be kept in the PL(A)YWOOD lockers.

I have added (and reduced my pledge accordingly):

  • Live Centre
  • Spindle gouge
  • Bowl gouge
  • Parting tool
  • Skew chisel

We really need to add a roughing gouge for more serious work and a chuck.

After this there is a near limitless variety of chisels available. Four of the more common ones would be nice to have.

The wood lathe has a slightly awkward 1" 12tpi right hand spindle and 7/8" 12tpi left hand spindle.

We could use a spindle adapter to change the thread of the spindle from the unusual 1" 12tpi to 1" 8tpi which would allow us to use easier to obtain chucks.
