Hi All,


I've had my '87 K75S since 2013, so seem to recall I've been here before. Some may know me from motobrick.

Welcome Ed.

I've seen some of your posts at motobrick, I hope they're not closing down soon with that recent worrying thread.

I think bocutter has a meaning, but can't remember what.

Bo is the staff used in karate. I have a 16x37" wood lathe with a 62" extension ... so it, or I, is the bocutter. Wink

Funny, I thought it must have some mechanical meaning and it's only because I'm a carpenter that I'm thinking it's about a lathe or a joinery biscuit, so stop thinking that.

Wood turners with ten fingers were pretty rare in this neck of the woods, in the good old days, which made me stop using mine since I've still got ten. If I had nine I'd be good to go.

Welcome Ed. Funny, I always thought you were on this forum, but thinking about it now, I've never seen a posting. Well, it's good you're here. Have to connect in the shop once this pandemic stuff is under control.

I was sure I had an account here, someone mentioned finding reference to the Exhaust Bushing/Gasket here (can't find it), so I came for a look.

Hi Ed, welcome (back?)!   

Woodturning, now we're talking - still my favourite thing to do in the shop.  And who would have ever thought that sitting down inside a fish and chip shop for some deep fried nosh could be so precious?  There is some decent fish and chips to be had out here in Niagara if the pandemic ends and you find your way out here.

Cheers,  Woodie

After spending the night tied up next to their fishing boat in Port Colborne I've been seriously jonesing for a pickerel dinner at Minor's.

Amen to that!!  That's who we get it from when it's time to satisfy that particular craving.  Every couple of years I'll get fried smelts from them too.  Where I grew up, many miles north of here, 'smelt drinking' was an annual spring event.  I ate so many smelts as a kid that I couldn't consider them a delicacy but I really enjoy a feed of them on occasion.

Ah, smelt! A long while ago we would dip them from the Niagara river near the Black Rock canal and take a 5 gallon bucket of them to a bar on the East Side where the owner's wife cleaned and fried them for the patrons and we would drink for free. They always had some sort of wild game or fish that was served for free(we just left a nice tip). The owners retired in the early 80's.

I know a woodturner in Welland, P. Hyde, from the CWW forum. I'd guess as he's English also enjoys a good F&C feed.

Never heard of smelts, fried or otherwise before. 

So if our trip to Canada (rescheduled to September) goes ahead, will need to give them try. 

Flying from UK into Toronto, few days in Niagara, then fly to Calgary. Pick up rental for the rest of the trip ending in Vancouver. Then rent a bike for riding with friends for a few weeks. 

Mike

I believe I crossed paths with Mr. Hyde a bunch of years ago. I know a couple of guys around here that turn but the bulk of my time on a lathe is spent doing architectural stuff for other millwork shops and most turners that I have met seem to focus on making bowls.

Smelts are great once in awhile but the pickerel mentioned by .75 is hands down the best local fish to be had!
