    3 wheels or 4?

    I’ve got to get a new power feed for my spindle moulder. The present one is a three- wheeler which is the only kind I’ve ever used. What’s the advantage of the 4th wheel? Is it worth the extra £ 150 odd?

    Advice on paper jointed turning blanks please

    I have a contract coming up which needs eight quarter-columns, 800mm long, largest radius about 240mm. I've done paper jointed turnings before, but much smaller and just in half, not quarters. Has anyone out there done something similar, and if so, any tips? Thanks for looking! Pete
