Woodturning Tip of the Day
Make your own lathe tray
As turners, we have lots of tools that seem to sit on our lathe bed. I will often find not only the tools that I'm currently using but calipers, gauges, drive centers, drill bits, jacob chucks, sandpaper and it goes on and on...
But I recently took a piece of plywood and make a tray for the bed of my lathe. I cut a scrap of wood which fit between the ways of my lathe and screwed it to the bottom of this plywood so it won't fall off the bed. My next step is to add sides and a top and that way I can keep the shavings off these items.
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.
