Yes folks Dave bought a lathe.
My ole pole lathe was getting a bit slow. It was not easy turning seasoned wood and getting a good result. So I am now killing a few electrons.
I have been having a great time learning. I have been practicing on toys and tool handles and Captive Rings. ( I had to make a tool for that one)
Shaving brush handles
Tea candle holders
Red oak bowl from firewood. (hard as hell)
And I have only had it a week.
Now I got a fair set of turning tools and a Nova chuck.
With the tools I needed a way to sharpen them. Captain Eddie Castelin has a wonderful jig he sells that is as good as the Wolverine rig. I built me on and man did that make the difference. You will see that in the next video.
Now every year the wife gets me to make Christmas ornaments for her 12 bus drivers. She is a school transportation director. So……
I want to thank Carl Jacobson and Captain Eddie Castelin for there instruction.
Now for the main event…
I think I am hooked 😉
