    individuals turning threads?

    I would suggest that certain topics have their own threads as usual but that if you think it adds to your journey thread that perhaps you mention or copy and paste suitable material or a link within the journey thread. As mentioned about coming in halfway through a journey thread etc. If you...

    individuals turning threads?

    To sit and read 10-20 pages of a thread that would show you where someone stared, what they had learned,changes to setup they had made, lathe upgrades, changes in how they do things and why, problems solved, help from others given ...seems like a good hour or so spent and would perhaps highlight...

    individuals turning threads?

    Oh well.... bit of a shame because it would support this site by increasing the footfall and become an even more sociable place, in that there would likely be more daily postings and discussions. Perhaps I'll start one and see how it goes. thanks Chas and keep up the good work John

    thinking of getting record power remounting jaws mega

    Have been using the cole Jaws for a couple of days and am very happy with them. the dovetail buttons(so called buffer kit) have held the two bowls I've worked on(flared rims) very well. been able to true up and sand and clean up base very nicely. havent tried holding anything yet with 90 degree...

    Gallery additions, the quest for me time.

    Thanks for that pic with the cole jaws Chas. Mine have come and I have been using them with the shaped dovetails. they held the 2 bowls I worked on very comfortably and securely(prob due to shape of rim). I even found that I could true up the outside with light cuts with a bowl gouge and a...

    thinking of getting record power remounting jaws mega

    Thanks Chas. Just been looking at doughnut chuck method to use instead of tailstock support.(anything larger than 6 inch diameter I have to swivel the head)anything smaller I guess jam chuck possibly best way to go. Have also noticed tape method and clingfilm mentioned stretched around rim. John

    thinking of getting record power remounting jaws mega

    Thanks for that input Chas. Do you often need tailstock support or have you made different fittings for different edges. do the supplied buttons which I guess are 90 degree hold rims that fit snugly or do you find that you need the dovetail versions and shape the bowls correspondingly.... or...

    thinking of getting record power remounting jaws mega

    yep just for removing tenons and perhaps a little light truing up/sanding/polishing etc. these jaws allow you to leave them on underneath your normal jaws and I was wondering if anyone does that as it would save a lot of time removing and replacing jaws or buying another chuck. Thanks Simon John

    thinking of getting record power remounting jaws mega

    As my lathe bed is only 3" below center I have to swivel the headstock whenever turning bowls larger than 6". therefore I cant use support from tailstock with a jam chuck etc. the rp remounting jaws look good and I could keep my standard jaws on at the same time which sounds good. Anyone have...

    dust and woodchip extraction.

    Well I have made a quick diy solution to get me started and Im very happy with it, but I do need to wear ear protection when using it. I've basically put a black and decker leaf blower/hoover in my log shed with the long hoover bit through the wall of the shed(wooden boards) the end reaches...

    Coronet No 3 Bowl turning question

    when you cut the oak with a chainsaw into rounds, remember that its the length of the round that will end up being the maximum diameter of your bowls. if you cut it to 30" you wont be able to pick it up.would probably take 4 guys to pick it up. if you find someone with a very long bar on a large...
