Wood Turning Tools used for the Salt and Pepper Mills

Wood Turning Tools

 

This is in response to a viewer with a mini lathe who had questions concerning what wood turning tools were used during the video of turning the Salt and Pepper Mills.

Thoughts of wood turning tools used:
1. Turning salt and pepper mills is essentially spindle turning.
2. Due to the length of your wood lathe you may need to bore out on your larger lathe, the drill press, or carefully by hand. However, you may be very well able to bore out on your Jet mini lathe.
3. You can start out with this wood project and you will do fine. Suggestion…practice on scrap before you select your best wood. Work out any bugs. Do your best for accuracy. When you get dialed in then commit to your selected wood for turning and go for it.
4. Check to see what size your spindle is on your Jet lathe. My guess is that it is 1″. Check the specs to make sure. You will need to know this info if you need to purchase.
5. Check the necessary morse taper for your specific wood turning lathe. (you should be able to look that info up on the web.)
6. My grinder is 8″ at 1725 rpm.
7. Tried and True oil varnish is a food safe finish that was used for the salt and pepper mills.
8. Books or Magazines…check out your local library.

This is a sketch that was used for the layout when when the walnut blanks were turned to cylinders. (When laying out remember to include 1″ in length for the top’s tenon. Also, pay attention to the tenon’s diameter.)
