Pledge: Wood Turning
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.
Pledge leader: MartinLee
- Chuck (~£125)
