I have just been cutting a large Sycamore burr and realised what a waste of such a beautiful piece cutting out the middle with a gauge is. Has anyone any idea where I might get a tool to cut out the middle to make a nest of bowls ?
Could be what they recommend. My wife's large lathe is a Jet 1442 w/ a 1 hp motor. It seems to have enough power, at least for anything that fits over the bed.trevtheturner":2ec32c1w said:Jaymar,
I'm not absolutely certain but I believe the Kel McNaughton centre-saver needs a lathe with a minimum of 2 hp motor. Worth checking if you consider getting one.

My lathe is a Hegner 1 h.p. which I thought was of insufficient power for the bowl-saver kit.
From your encouraging reply sounds like I might be in luck - I'll check it out.
