Hi Harry

I did play with it, and it's a 50/50 thing ( "in an attempt to prove you wrong! Bj") below you will see the saw dust fills up the threads (root diam) it's true the wing nut or nut will chase the threads to the 2A root diam.but the threads are still full of saw dust,and in time it will jam the wing nut (a pack up thing) the 1st. try I could feel a bit of a drag and on the 5th time it was dragging alot,just like a locking type nut would do after you use it a time or two..

so to say it's a 50/50 thing for me but not on my router...

see the build up of saw dust on the can of

I did the test for two reasons, firstly out of curiosity and secondly in an attempt to prove you wrong! I'm sure you remember how against skis you were, until you finally gave it a try, well Bob, how about doing the same here, get a can of WD40 and give it a try, I know that you are man enough to say you were wrong if in fact the results you get are the same as mine.

Bob, you must appreciate that for the test, the bolt was SOAKED in WD40, but as I use it on router columns, there is only the slightest trace, and it works wonders!
If only I was 20 years younger, I'd probably give electronics away and get a commission only job selling WD40. A pre-requisite for a gun salesman is having faith in the product, and just in case you're still not sure if I'm a true believer in WD40, let me say it out loud..............I BELIEVE IN WD40, IT'S PROBABLY THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!

Hi Harry

Not SOAKED with that junk WD40, just a spray of it on the threads but like normal it was like a magnet , most don't wipe it off..

That's great, if you like WD40 you would Love Marvel in your own spray bottle.

Bob, regarding the "MARVEL MYSTERY OIL", I'll certainly give it a try when I make a gasoline powered router! But seriously, I've never been game to try such additives to my car's engine, after spending over $36k, I'm not prepared to take any risks. We have similar products here, one of the demonstrations shows an engine idling with a camera on the tacho., when a can of the additive is poured into the engine, the idling speed increases, allegedly because of the reduced friction on all the moving parts. My logic tells me that if an individual guy can invent something like this, surely the giant oil companies with their unlimited resources can produce an oil that cannot be improved with additives.

Harry, that does look impressive! The finish is terrific and the grain really pops out at you. That's exactly what I'm trying to do with my lathe. When the weather warms up and I've collected a few more essential parts (like a decent lathe chuck), I shall be trying my hand at the same craft. Best of luck on your progress!

Mike, believe me, when I made that bowl I was a complete novice, which I still am, most of what I've learned about turning has come through pestering Bernie with lots of questions. I have however improved my chisels which has made a big improvement.

Harry you are a far piece from being a novice. We all help one another and that is what I like about this turning forum. Anybody and everybody can ask question which helps everyone to learn. I just need to get home so I can get back to turning and get some clock work done. But grandma is having fun with the grandkids so can't complain. Ya know the old saying, "if grandma is happy, everyone is happy."
