Re: Mark VII wood lathe chuck

A Nova G3 chuck ($139 - max swing is 14") or Supernova 2 chuck ($189 - max swing is 20") will work fine and is available from anyone that sells lathe equipment. These chucks usually come without the insert that threads into the back of the chuck to attach to your lathe. Nova makes a 5/8&qu...

Re: Universal Tool Rest

I have one and it will accept other tool rests as long as the post is sized correctly. If you remove the articulating arm it becomes like most every other banjo/tool rest on the market so no problem there. My regular tool rest articulating arm cracked and a friend sold me his UTR since he had switch...

Dust Collection holders

Started on a dust hose holder years ago, but just reached that "do it now" moment recently and finished the holders. One mounts in the back hole of the carriage so hose is directly behind whatever you turn. The second one mounts in the miter slot. I needed dust collection for a power carvi...

SS drill mode

Got ready to drill a hole in a table leg in horizontal mode which was going to be so easy on my SS. Oops the table won't go down far enough! Switched to vertical position and had a perfectly centered hole in no time. Metal base in which I had previously drilled the table leg hole, plus top and base ...

Copper pipe or brass tubes make good ferrules. I have used brass pen tubes on some small projects. If you don't have a lathe set up, you could rig a tool rest for a drop press. If tang is round just drill a hole and epoxy in. Another option is to split a dowel in half and shape a cavity for the tang...

I have edited the initial post to include pics and details of what I have learned. This set up is a keeper and needs to move to a metal copy with a two part post to allow the router to swivel or lock into a set postion.

Just checked out the flute set up and do not need to offset the leg. The taper is 3/32nd less at the small end compared to the larger end and should work perfectly off of the tool rest support arm. I'll have vertical and horizontal adjustment and only need to come up with a flat plate to anchor the ...
