    Bushing Dust on Pen

    Thanks for the responses. That'll give me a few things to try. Think I'll start with cleaning the bushings with DNA. Put a coat of CA on the bushings to seal it. Then before sanding, remove the bushings and try the spare pen tube cut to make some spacers. May be overkill but it would be nice to...

    Just getting back into turning and an old problem has come up again. When sanding a pen I keep getting bushing dust on the wood. Especially when working with light colored wood. I saw a post where somebody mentioned sealing the wood with CA glue but I seem to get the dust in the wood during the...

    Table extension for bandsaw.

    Ethan, Bruce, Thanks for the responses. Guess I coulda been a little clearer on what I was looking for. I'm looking for an extension just to on side so I can resaw some logs. I've got some oak logs that I want to cut into some stock for spindles. The overlay is something I will probably do on...

    Table extension for bandsaw.

    I recently bought a "HD special" bandsaw. Definitely nothing fancy but seems to work ok after bit of tweaking. Just got a resaw fence for it but I need to come up with a table extension that can be easily removed and set up. Shop space is limited (wife refuses to park the car outside and leave...

    Dumbest tool purchase?

    Dumbest tool purchase was a finger joint jig from WoodCraft. Nothing wrong with the jig but when looking for a place to keep it, I decided a good place to put it would be on the shelf in the far side of the garage. Reached up to put it there.....and there was another one, brand new, still in the...

I make a lot of sawdust but sometimes I end up with something recognizable. I'm hoping to learn from other members so there's less dust and even more...
