    Record Coronet Herald

    Took a trip to Yandles yesterday for some turning blanks and while I was there I had a look at the Coronet Herald. To my eye it looks a nice lathe, does the team have any views on this one? One of my concerns was that I'd need an extension to change the headstock thread from 33 mm to 1", this...

    What am I doing wrong

    Hi Guys I have been turning off and on for a few years but a problem has been bugging me for quite a while. While turning a bowl I can get the outside really nice and smooth with the tools resulting in less sanding. But when it comes to the inside I seem to have a series of tool marks that I...

Everything was going fine, but on slowing the lathe speed down to the lowest speed the chuck decided to come unscrewed from the lathe on its own. No damage was...

Does the expert team have any suggestions? I might add...

    Turning Tools

    I have a selection of Robert Sorby, Record and a few old Crown ones. I guess my questions is, considering there is an array of toolmakers available, what does the team think and how would you rate different makers?
