    burning groove inside a bowl

    I use formica to burn grooves. The speed needs to be kept at a higher rpm. You want to generate a lot of friction and heat.

    Powermatic 3520B...Dream Machine or Hype

    I'm getting into this discussion a little late. I don't own a Powermatic, but have turned on one in 5 classes at John Campbell Folk School. They are great lathes, but, I think that the Jet 2hp 1642 is the best bang for the buck. I have a Oneway 2436 and 2 Oneway 1224's. I also have the...

    Hurricane chuck?

    I decided to give the Hurricane chucks a try last March. I found that they worked well. They weighed more than the Talons I was used to. I eventually decided to sell them and buy another Talon. I still have 2 of the HTC 100's. I went back to the Talon as I had grown used to them and my jigs...

    Rough Turning Bowls

    Mike the rule of thumb in roughturning bowls is to make the thickness 10% of the dia. Leave the tenon on and round over the sharp edges. I store mine in a cardboard box. I date them and weigh occasionally. Sometimes the end grain should be sealed. When the blank stops losing weight it is...

    GWL - first bowl

    You should try a jam chuck to hold the bowl. Mount a piece of 3/4" plywood or mdf to your faceplate and cut a groove in it that you can push your bowl into. It should be a snug fit. You can re-enforce the hold with strapping tape. Take light cuts and you should be fine. FWIW curved side...
