Hi Rick

Looking to upgrade my lathe which will take me from my current 5/8" post to a 1". Would I still be able to use the tool rests I have from you if I just got a new post?

Thanks,

Allan

No problem Allan, I normally use bigger threads on the 1" posts but I can make one that will fit your existing rests.

Looking forward to helping you, THANKS for the inquiry.

Wanted to say thanks for the offset sanding jig! It is so much nicer than the barrel trimmer I was using, and now I don't have to buy all the adapters for that either.

Great accessory!

My off set sanding jig arrived. We gave it a try this evening. Only have one question. Why didn't I get this ages ago? We accomplished the job in about an eighth of the time it took us before.

Thanks.

Mine arrives Monday. Got any pics of how you set up your sandpaper?

My set up looks just about like Mr. Herrell's does in the picture he shows. I attached about a six in board to our face plate and turned it round. Sprayed some 3m contact glue on the board and a sanding disk let the dry a bit, pressed the sandpaper on and presto. The whole setup took about 15 minutes and we were in business.

So a standard 2x6 from the big box store? That's what I was thinking.



I used the 6 in diablo brand sanding disc from Home Depot simply because that is what I had on hand. I am sure any good quality paper glued on and cut to fit would work. I have found with sand paper it better to pay a little more for better quality.

I used a piece of that 3/4" shelving material that has the white Formica on it, that way I can use the self-adhesive sandpaper discs. They're a little more money but you won't need to buy spray adhesive so it's a wash.

My off set sanding jig got here today. Won't be able to give it a run for a couple days. I will say that this is one gorgeous piece of kit. It may be the best looking tool I own. LOL I almost hate to get it dusty...but I will, and soon. Thanks Rick!!

Got a chance to try my sanding jig today. All I can say is wow! This this is awesome and works flawlessly. If you're on the fence about this, jump off the fence and buy with confidence. Great addition to my shop for sure!!

man you don't know what your missing until you get a quality tool rest. Tools glide across these things like butter on ice. So glad I got some. Now I just need a few more at different lengths. Oh yeah he made my custom ones and had them shipped within a few hours. Thanks Rick!

Rich I was interested in a couple things do you have a website or anything like that? Or do you strictly sell on this forum?
