True to its name, purpleheart boasts vibrant purple heartwood, and a fine, satiny texture. Initially a dull brown, it takes on its brilliant tone shortly after the wood is cut. The sapwood is creamy, pinkish cinnamon. It has exceptionally high bending and crushing strength, is dimensionally stable, and is extremely resistant to decay. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Alternate name: Peltogyne.Tree: Usually tall, with a height of about 100 to 150 feet and a diameter of up to 48 inches, usually between 18 and 36 inches.Heartwood: Initially dull brown, rapidly changing to a bright, vibrant purple. Prolonged exposure darkens wood to a dark-purplish brown or dark brown, but the original color can be preserved with a UV inhibitor. Color variation among boards is reported to be moderate to high. Presence of minerals in some boards may cause uneven coloration and steaming is reported to affect the color. Light & Air-Induced Changes: Treatment against the effects of ultra-violet rays maintainss the original color of the wood. Treatment with Armorall, the car finish product, under lacquer is reported to hold the color well.Grain: Typically straight, occasionally wavy or irregular.Texture: Medium to fine.Luster: Medium to high.Movement: Very dimensionally stable.Natural Durability: Highly resistant to attack by decay fungi, very resistant to dry-wood termites, and somewhat resistant to attack by marine borers. Also reported to be resistant to chemicals such as acids.Cutting Resistance: Purpleheart is moderately difficult to saw. Tools usually require frequent sharpening. A reduced cutting angle of 15 degrees is recommended, especially when planing and moulding material with interlocked or wavy grain. Nailing: The wood requires to be pre-bored, but nail-holding capabilities are reported to be good.Steam Bending: The wood steam bends fairly well.Strength Properties: Bending strength in the air-dry condition is very high, and crushing strength is exceptionally high. It does not mar or dent easily, and is very heavy and dense.
When operating DeWalt's Gyroscopic Screwdriver, think of it as exactly that—a screwdriver. Twist to the left to loosen, twist to the right to tighten. If you want to increase the speed, simply twist your wrist further. Sensors inside the tool respond to the motion of your wrist, eliminating the need for manual switches. The adjustable two-position handle allows both an in-line screwdriver configuration or a pistol-grip configuration, while dual LED lights provide better visibility in dark spaces. The kit includes two battery packs, each of which can last for up to 5 days of runtime with the typical user. For a compact, portable screwdriver with precise, intuitive speed control, look no further than the DeWalt DCF680N2. Motion-activated forward and reverse eliminates need for manual switchMotion-activated variable speed from 0-430 RPM—simply turn your wrist further in either direction to speed up the drillAdjustable two-position handle allows for operation in either in-line or pistol-grip positionsExcellent for light fastening applications in wood, plastic, and light-gauge metalLED light illuminates confined areas without casting shadowsOn-board battery indicator warns user when battery is low1/4'' hex-shank chuck holds 1'' driver bits and allows for quick screwdriver bit changes8V MAX battery pack boasts longer run-time and charges in only one hourFifteen clutch positions for precise control to prevent stripping
Nova Soft Jaws consist of four segments of high-quality soft nylon, which can be cut and customized by the user to their specific requirements. Simply turn them with a scraper to the required dimensions. This allows woodturners to make a special set of non-marring jaws for unique projects. It also allows nearly full diameter contact with the workpiece, since you can turn out to the exact diameter required. Nylon can be turned to shape using standard tools. They can be turned, sawn, drilled or tapped.Because they are made of nylon, they hold most woods without marking. Vibrant red color makes it easy to see profiles. By machining the profile after mounting, you can eliminate any errors that may have added up from mounting the jaws to the chuck, then to the spindle.Maximum contact with workpiece. Near full diameter contact is achievable, since you can turn out to the exact diameter required.Thick jaw body lets user profile any shape they wish, limited only by the fastening heads, which are embedded 22.5mm from the face of the jaws.Outer ring diameter when closed: 120mm (4.7").Thickness: 27mm (1").Tips for customizing the soft jaws:It is recommended to use a scraper that is about 1/2" wide, with an end that is 90° to the side of the scraper. It will cut on both sides and on the end.Recommended bevel angle is about 70 degrees. When scraping nylon, the tool rest must be as close to the work as possible and you must always use a light touch. Run your lathe at a speed between 1700 and 2000 rpm for best cutting.You must take extra care when machining the jaws so as not to hit to hit the screw heads.Features standard on all Nova Jaws:Nova chucks give you the same jaw fixing system and same insert/adaptor system across all chuck models.All accessory jaws in the range will fit all the chucks in the range for optimum flexibility. Some, however, are not recommended. See individual jaws for recommendations. Nova chucks are specially designed so the jaws cut into the wood, grip firmly in the contraction mode and provide high tear out strength.
