Finished the two parting tools and they are ready for testing.

The top one is the one made from a lawn edger blade, the bottom one is from a sawsall blade.

Went with this style handle as I've seen a lot done that way. Will I like it? Who knows.

As you can see these are made from some left over oak, simple oil finish. Blades are J-B welded to wood and then the two brass rivets. Expect these might last me a life time starting at my age.

Today I started on my first lathe handle for the other tools I have been working on. Took a few more pictures and I'll share them in a moment.

No better time then this project to try out the thin parting tools. I went with the thinnest one today. WOW I loved it! Had I know how great these are I would have purchased or made one years ago. If you want to get into one of these projects I'd say go for the thin parting tool.

OK now on to the next project.

I figured I'd like to go about 4-1/2" deep into the handle for the tool. Good idea or not I had to start somewhere. In the picture you can see what this looks like.

Beware if you just have a standard set of bits you are not going to be able to do this. As you can see here there is a bit of a problem.

[ATTACH]24497[/ATTACH]

There are several lengths of bits but the one I have is way longer then I need but will have no problem going just 4-1/2". I set up the shopsmith to do horizontal boring and drilled away, remember to drill then pull the bit back out to get rid of the chips. Makes it take longer but you will be sorry of you don't do that.

Here is the piece of ash on the lathe. Now to make it round.

[ATTACH]24499[/ATTACH]

Went with a steb like center mounted in a chuck on the drive end and a live center on the other.

More of the story to follow in my next post.

Now that it was round I could get to the shape and other requirements.

[ATTACH]24501[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH]24502[/ATTACH]

The only real requirement was to get the ring to fit. Length was no problem but getting the diameter just right well that took a couple of tests.

[ATTACH]24503[/ATTACH]

The third time was the magic and was the winner.

[ATTACH]24504[/ATTACH]

Still more to come.

Progress thus far.

Turning, sanding and parts ready for the final steps.

[ATTACH]24505[/ATTACH]

I did not do a fine sanding on the tool handle. I wanted a good grip so while the material provides that by nature I added to it by stopping at a light 320 sanding. A natural oil has been applied and drying at this time.

[ATTACH]24506[/ATTACH]

I think either one or two additional coats of oil before I put it all together. Have to decided which of the 4 tools I want to do, decisions, decisions.

Anyway I think that will be it for today's efforts. Now I need to get some of those chips that missed the "gulp".

If it does, the straight 'tool' will fit tighter!:D

If you talk to the wood and tools nicely they will not wander off.

In my case I have longer brad points in metric "pen" sizes that would have been long enough but my regular set is no longer then the twist drill.

Now comes the end product.

Looks nice and feels nice.

[ATTACH]24508[/ATTACH]

So I think this brings this thread to a close. No use posting a repeat for the other three tools.

Comments and questions are welcome of course, otherwise this is it.
