New from Oneway

Oneway 1236SD Lathe

The 1236SD Lathe

Introducing the newest lathe from Oneway, the 1236SD. The "SD" on this lathe stands for "sitting down". Yes, as you can tell from the above picture, the lathe bed, headstock, banjo and tailstock all rotate allowing you to turn while sitting.

So, this lathe is suitable for people who turn for long periods of time and can't (or don't want to) stand on their feet that long and for the more obvious reason, people in wheelchairs or other sitting devices who can't stand. This really helps a group of people that we've often heard from that have been trying to find ways to either start or to keep turning!

New from Teknatool

Teknatool Soft Jaws

NOVA Soft Jaws

Consists of 4 segments of high quality soft nylon jaws which are able to be cut and customised by the user to their specific requirements. It is designed to allow woodturners make up a special set of jaws for a job and store them away with the jigs and templates for the project.

Features and benefits:

Universal fitting - these accessory jaws fit onto EVERY chuck in the NOVA range.

Easy to use - The four segments of quality nylon can be turned to shape using standard tools. They can be turned, sawn, drilled or tapped.

Markless holding - Being made of nylon, they also hold most woods without marking.

Vibrant colour - The vibrant NOVA red colour makes it easy to see profiles. By machining the profile after mounting, you can eliminate any errors that may have added up from mounting the jaws to chuck then to the spindle.

Maximum holding - You can get full diameter holding on your specific work piece as you can turn out to the exact diameter required.

Thick jaw body - user can profile any shape they wish limited only by the fastening heads which are embedded 22.5 mm from the face of the jaws. This gives the turner a great deal of flexibility in what they can do.

New from Chick and Duck Mfg.

The Rim Chuck

The Rim Chuck is a wood lathe chuck that was born out of the same frustration we have all felt. You turn a beautiful vessel and then part it off to find the bottom in desperate need of finishing. You sand it, you scrape it, you try to turn it clean with a forstner bit but still it just doesn't meet the standard you have kept through the rest of the project.

The Rim Chuck wood lathe chuck fits the bill. Six pliable rubber jaws secure your project with tenderness and toughness. They hold from the inside or the outside, then put your work up for inspection by the pickiest appraisers.

New from FullPro Sound Protection

Eye protection

Soundvision Safety Glasses

Traditional safety glasses and sunglasses have arms that break the seals of earmuffs and headsets, letting in sound (average noise attenuation loss of 3-7 decibels*) and creating pressure points against the skull.

SoundVision safety glasses attach to the outer surface of earmuffs or headsets with Velcro-like straps and thus preserve full, comfortable ear seals and full protection.

New from Ruth Niles

Ruth Niles bottle stopper

Stainless Steel Bottle Stoppers

If you like using metal bottle stoppers, these solid stainless steel stoppers designed by Ruth Niles are the best for 3 reasons:

1. They are certified FDA Appr'd for food contact. They are made from solid non-magnetic stainless with nitrile o-rings. They will never pit or chip. They are made in PA (USA) for total quality control.

2. They seal tight, you can lay a bottle on its side with no fear of drips. The angle and o-rings were designed to fit various size openings.

3. The low profile allows your turnings to be the focal point by sitting on the bottle not towering above it. This also allows for more turning design possibilities and a stopped bottle will fit in the fridge.

You can order these stoppers made with either a threaded or a smooth tenon and can only be ordered directly from Ruth by phone, email or direct mail.
