Woodturning Tip of the Day
Using a paper-glue joint
The most common way to attach stock to the faceplate leaves undesirable holes in the bottom of your project. Here's how to avoid the holes: glue a scrap mounting block to the stock you want to turn with one sheet of newspaper in between them. After turning, split the paper joint, and you'll have a clean, even separation.
If you use regular non-prescription safety eyeglasses and find them uncomfortable when you add earmuff sound protection then this new product might be for you. The supplier's description says " SoundVision by FullPro is an eye protection solution that eliminates problems users experience when using traditional safety glasses with earmuffs or headsets. Regular safety glasses break earmuff seals, causing pressure points against the skull and reducing protection. SoundVision eliminates the pinching and improves earmuff protection by up to seven decibels by attaching to earmuffs with flexible velcro-like straps."
To use SoundVision, you attach a stick-on Velcro to the back of each side of the earmuff. The Velcro-like straps attached to each side of the safety glasses are attached after you have put on the earmuffs.
