I saw it and liked it.
I only did one piece in my whole life and it was in eighth grade. I finished it with linseed oil. That was about 55-60 years ago. My mother kept it and used it for the rest of her life and I got it back when she died. I also still use it but it has got real dirty over all these years. I tried an "alcohol swab" on a small patch with little results.
Could you suggest a good way to clean it up?
I got a blue ribbon for that in the school program. It looked real sharp than but now with all these years it dose not look so good.

Maybe a scotch bright pad on it to clean off some of the dirt that has settled on the oil and then a new coat of oil. It still looks good, by the way.

Great video!!!! Love your work. I got a lathe in my early 20s and loved turning, same as you. Moved to Germany for a few years and it wound up in storage. Still have it but haven't used it in 40 years.

About cleaning up the old lamp, I’d try mineral spirits and wipe it down a couple of times. Then re-coat with either boiled linseed or (my favorite) tung oil.

Wow! Amazing work.

Little fancier than your average Crapsman lathe too.

Thank you Paul. The lathe I am running now is a Nova Galaxy DVR. Got a real good deal second hand but, the guy had never really run the lathe. Basically new but, second hand. Real smooth compared to the Craftsman lathe dad had.

Dieselrider,

I made a *bad* mistake! I showed your video to Mrs Bkeepr...who just told me she found your website.

It seems that you have yarn bowls for sale!?? I guess you can't have too many yarn bowls.

Thanks, buddy! :lol:

God, you do beautiful work. Hate to butter you up but all these years in forums I just figured you as a veggie gardener and green tractor hater.
Excellent DR

I really like your work. You are very talented. I would be interested in one of your bowls. I want it for a Christmas present so no hurry.
