lathe fluting jig

Does anyone know what issue of Fine Woodworking had an article about a jig for the lathe that holds a router for fluting and beading columns? I've looked through my issues and can't find it. I can't get any info on the FWW web site without paying through the nose for any bit of information.

I'd appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks,

Welcome to the forum, Gary.

PS. I don't consider the cost of an annual subscription to FWW Online as "paying through the nose"........Great value IMHO.

Gary, I too dislike paying for back issues.

I have and use a router lathe for fluting and reeding on columns.
For reeding on flat jobs I'm presently setting up a sled for the Dremel.
Less weight, limited cutting tools, but how many different grooves do you make?
Mainly, a lot easier to mount than a full on router.

Just my thoughts, 'n welcome to the forum.

C ya,
Clemo.

Larry, I just looked at your post and I like what you have done.

I think a Dremel or perhaps a small trimmer type router is a great tool for ornamental turning.

Tks

Welcome, Gary.

Try to find Shopnotes 115. There is a very nice milling machine to do what you are looking for. In the forum "Woodturning and lathes" there are various examples of router lathes for the same pourposes.

Eenjoy your router

With intricate or acurate work I prefer to use smaller and lighter tools. I feel that I have better control with lighter weight and less torque. It just takes a little longer.

Just a personal preference, thats all.

The limited range of bits from Dremel is a problem though.

If you have access to a metal lathe, any bit with a 1/4" shank is easily turned down to suit a Dremel as shown in this shot of one that I did for use in the fluting jig that I have still under construction which has a Dremel in it's plunge router base mounted on of the jig.

Tks Harry,

Failing access to a metal lathe, the bit in the drill press an slow speed and an angle grinder, followed by a file to clean up.

There is always a way, sometimes it just takes a while to think it through.

Have you seen a very small (say 1.2 to 2.5mm) radius rounding over bit? Or can you think of a way to make one?

Tks
C ya.
