    Ebay bargain (not mine!)

    Just some basic bowl turning (gradually of different sizes up to the capacity of the lathe), pen pots, nothing too taxing to start with. With the tools as well it will hopefully give me a good basis to practice and work from. :lol:

    Problem with Norris adjuster on Veritas plane

    Hi guys I'm having a problem with it and i'm afraid it's the second time it has happened. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I can't adjust the blade enough to protrude through the sole.
