Couple of tricks I picked up at the WWing show worth passing along.
Posted the illustrated tips in alt.binaries/pcitures.woodworking
The show haul:
Accusparay 230 HVLP turbine, six foot whip hose and another
needle and tip for the Accuspray 10 HVLP gun I got a couple of
years ago. The cheap Wagner single stage turbine just got too
irritating to use anymore - "inexpensive" things often become
more trouble than they're worth. Should've gone with Buy Once,
Cry Once to begin with. This was the Big Ticket Item - I only
allow myself one per show. Relative to the Wagner,this thing is
whisper quiet, heavy duty bearings and four hour duty cycle, in
case I want to paint the whole freakin' house - in half day
increments - which is fine with me.
Woodline's Cabinet Making Bits Set - rail & stile, raised panel,
T&G, drawer lock, door/drawer lip bit and set up blocks, their
little special bit for glass panels and the How To DVD for the set.
The guys with the crown molding cutting jigs FINALLY put out
a DVD on how to use ALL their capabilities, along with a handy
decal of instructions to stick on the jigs so you've got on the
job reminders. NOW maybe my kid, the general contractor,
will use the damn things I got for him LAST year. If you do
crown molding you've got to check this out
Couple of Razir wood burning tips for an artist friend in Autsin.
FINALLY found the two foot goose neck lamps I've been searching
for (Moffat Inc Flex Arm Lamp 24") - one for my lathe bench
and one for the work bench. Very slick - has multiple bases and
a quick disconnect lamp to base feature like on an air hose. Will
use the bracket base for the lathe bench and screw the other base
to a bench hole plug I'll turn specifically for that use. The lamp
will handle a 100 watt bulb - which should be more than enough
light and a heat sink for the switch for longer switch life.
Being able to crank the light to odd positions and have it
stay there is nice! Not cheap - $54 each - but I got a Show
Deal PLUS a "quantity discount" 'cause I bought two for a total
of 20% off.
Some "thick" and "thin" CN glue, a can of hardene, some
Mahoney's Walnut Oil Utility Finish and a diameter gauge for
spindle work rounded out the wood turning stuff.
Have to check the account balance and see if there's any money
left - for books. May even find a viscosity cup at one of the
spray equiptment booths.
Life is good, though the weather is so-so.
