  1. Pete, graduated from Grover Cleveland HS, Ridgewood, NY, USA.
  2. I have a Rikon 70-050VS which has been replaced. Rikon has a 5 year warranty. Small but fits what I turn. So many choices.
  3. Welcome to the wonderful world of woodturning. Also, look at for a specific website for woodturning.
  4. Yes, what Mark said, you can get a nice modern lathe for about the same price or cheaper. Good luck as there are a lot of choices. And one good turn deserves another.
  5. If I had $35,000, I would sit up all night and look at it!
  6. Pine with the proper grain and colors are nice. I never had a request for pine, though. Refer to my previous post on Sunday.
  7. I learned the 11th Commandment- Thou Shalt Keep Thy Body Parts Away From The Blade.
  8. DC piping under the floor? What if you get a clogged pipe? Electrical- make sure that sawdust, etc., stays out of the outlets. Even with covers, that might be iffy. Hope I'm reading this thread correctly.
  9. If you have natural gas available, infra red is efficient. LP is next but a bit more expensive. IR heats the surroundings like the sun heats the inside of your car in winter. The dash is warm even though the air is cold. BTW, I have seen some auto shops with IR pointing at each work station. It warms the floor which becomes a radiant heat. No matter which way you go, good luck. Wish I had half that floor space for my shop.
  10. Mick, never hard of the company except as SCM. At one time they made rifles for the military.
  11. I just vacuum with a round nozzle after the particles have cooled...usually an hour or more when I do the whole shop. I don't vacuum right away after sharpening.
  12. I thought SCM only made typewriters!
  13. BillyJack, I must agree that those cabinets look great. I never saw pine offered for factory cabinets and never heard of it requested for custom cabinets. About years ago, I recall seeing a garage lined with knotty pine; probably T&G boards. Measured for cabinets for a remodel. Great room had pine T&G on the walls and ceiling.
  14. gee-dub, I have to agree. I wonder how much profit would be gained. I think I would report him to a local group as BBB or CoC.
