You must really Love to punish yourself. That Ebony wood was made for machining and it balks at the knife, hating to be touched by it. However you are getting Excellent results using whatever tools you are using so don't stop. This swap guy is turning out to be a real show stopper, much like most all your pieces.

Thank's for reply happy TC'ers!!!

Seeksurf: Thank's a lot for advise, I'll try not to be pressed. In fact I think the summer will pass quickly with all the projects already undertaken... Go next year for this logs! And you when are we entitled to an update from you ?

Benjamin: Thank's for the shoes comp, I've an other pairs with leopard pattern at my work! (to take the shower...) "Nothing else to add ! " Délit d'initié!

Tikimango: Thank you!

BenZ: Full thank's, much appreciated comps from you, but sorry is NOT ebony! That's Grenadill/mpingo/african blackwood (
MORE HERE). Only 1400 kg/m3 .
Far from being a punishment carving is a game of patience with this kind of wood, I like it!

Now I present my new toy:

Last week, I renovated a lapidary sander on my old Kity, always useful.



And then I change the bearing, pulley drive and the base into a polishing machine (thank you to my mechanic friends for help and advice!)



Speed 900 rpm



Almost without sanding: correct result...



Have a good night!
Next update the swap piece finished I hope!


Jérôme.

Nice toy! Please be careful while wearing gloves around rotating machinery, that's a huge No-No.

Why did you cross the belt? Looks like it might rub. I agree though, nice toy!

No problem tikimango, I'll be carefull! When I do small piece I prefer to wear gloves instead of sanding fingers..



Tikilizard, for the most secure sense of rotation I've not an other choice what cross the belt. It's the same thing for the circular saw, even if the rub is less.

Nice day everyone!

Jérôme.

Man Laojia, you KNOW what those photos do to me the tool junkie and I think you do it on purpose, just to make me drool. I'm thinking already where i cold put such tools in my shop and I Can't but I'm Still Green with envy instead of more jade dust! I would love to see photos of your whole shop even they will probably send me to the bad places.. Love the simple addition of another pully to an existing machine to make it work with another. The beginnings of a personal ShopSmith.

More pics
http://www.flickr.com/photos/seeksurf/

Just over 10'
Red Alder
I don't know the weight 300?
I have seen allot of new NW poles that are leaving off the paint.
This pole is going to be left outside and the paint just goes
away in time so I'm thinking just paint on rain mans face.
Yes Im thinking of using the tung oil again.
International shipping a butt load! but if your in WA state
you can come look at it anytime.
