ARTICULATING ARM No. 2, Professional Model, Videos and PLANS

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


ARTICULATING ARM No. 2, Professional Model, Videos and PLANSHere it is, my second articulating arm, made out of kiln dried oak. Basically the same as the first prototype, but now with its own post. In the prototype I worked out the mechanism, and found out that it was very successful. It could be rebuild from a better wood along with a few changes that I found out while making this model. Just because it is made of wood it is not weak in any way, and I think it would pretty much keep up with a professional metal one for the novice turner. The advantage is that it can be built very easily at a very low cost and do some turning that you have only dreamed of.
As an aid I video taped the process of making this one. There are two videos of over 20 minutes each, Part 1 and Part 2. and also a demonstration video of using this one. about 10 minutes. In these videos I have tried to explain all aspects. I will show the simple basic plans also in this post for easy reference if you choose to build one.Demonstration video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpDQcryQ5rs&t=24sPart 1 construction video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3N07oHFxfhU&t=54sPart 2 construction video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4od5gQBvKOM&t=6sIf interesting in building one it may be an advantage to watch the demonstration video for the first one.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ttXYMFW1gs&t=9sFor interest sake here are a few more pictures.The dimensions on these plans can be changed to meet your lathe size.Now I just have to make a completed project since the block I tried it out on was green wood and split. I cut this block from an old yellow cedar log today, hopefully I will have more success on this one.Thanks for checking this one out, fun to build and use. Hope this experiment will aid a number of you good woodworking folk.Comments appreciated. would like to know what you think of this idea.for interest sake here are a few more pictures.

Leg Vise with Yost Screw

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Leg Vise with Yost ScrewI have wanted to add a leg vise to my bench for a long time. I received a Yost 18 vise screw as a gift for Christmas, and today I was able to get it installed. I have a Roubo build coming up, and figured if I could install a functional leg vise on an existing bench, then including it in the build process should be at least a little easier.I cut down some 2×12s to 6 wide to fit on my jointer. After jointing and planing, I used my biscuit joiner and glued them back up. I laminated two 1 1/4 pieces at 10 wide. I ended up with a final width of 8 3/4 that tapers to 6 at the bottom. I also chamfered the top and bottom faces. I sanded to 220 grit and finished with boiled linseed oilMy bench legs aren't flush with the top so I planed a 4 wide piece of pine to flush everything up. Then, I used a corded hammer drill and Forstner bit to bore the hole in the leg to accommodate the vise screw. I bored the screw hole in the chop with my drill press.I cut a large dowel to serve as the crank for the vise. I also drilled holes in the screw so that the dowel is stationary and doesn't slide back and forth.As I am starting my new bench build in the next month, I have been looking into the usual accessories. The Benchcrafted stuff is incredible. I ordered their plans for the Split Top Roubo, but I am struggling with the price associated with their hardware. I have absolutely no doubt regarding the quality of their Hardware, but am finding it difficult to convince myself to drop $700 on vises.In the end, I am pleased with this vise screw, and know that it will only be better when installed as part of the build. I was impressed enough with the quality of the screw that I decided to order the Yost 17 end vise. I will report on that when I install it on my new bench.Thanks for looking!
