Wooden threaded handscrews Part 4

In this episode I am turning the handle rods and prepare them both for threading. After many requests to hear my daughter sing I have included her in the video. I hope you enjoy it and please subscribe and hit the like button. Cheers.

  1. Another well one video Salko. I have yet to try any turning, but your video was clear as to what steps you took to ensure a consistent diameter on the shaft as well as the handle shaping. You have a knack for this video thing. Keep em’ coming.

    P.S. Your daughter has a beautiful voice. Fantastic bonus content in this video.

    1. Thanks very much Greg turning the diameter accurately isn’t as easy as it looks. It takes a steady machine like hand to do it something my hands are not. I called many woodworking supply stores who specialise in turning and not one of them had a permanent solution. One way I tackle this in the video is turning it close to finished diameter and grab some sandpaper and finish it off that way. I’ve found this to be the most successful but still far from perfect. I’ve tried resting the block plane on the rest which technically should work but no go for me. That’s life though ain’t it you win some and lose some.

      Thanks for the compliment on my daughter’s voice I shall convey this to her. After much begging she’s agreed to do a few more for me.

  2. Hi Salko – It’s been a while since I visited your blog. Nice video production. Sounded like a movie opening at the beginning. That song your daughter did was great. Was it her own song or is she covering another artist? Sounded way better than most of the drivel coming out of the radio these days.

    1. Thanks Matt good to see you came over for a visit. Thanks for the compliment all I can say is I’m trying my best with these videos, it sure is time consuming to make and produce.
      I too don’t like the radio much, she is covering another artist not sure who as I don’t follow these sort of things but she has written many songs in the past that were really good I’m not sure if she kept any I’ll ask her when she get home from school and hopefully can get her to do another for me which is proving quite a mission hence why I haven’t uploaded the next part.
