Hearing aid battery life.

Watch a YouTube about making hearing aid batteries last longer, he put tape over the batteries when he removed them, I though that might leave a sticky residue.

Re: SCROLL SAW TABLE INSERT

I believe they are about a 1/4" thick and could be made from hardboard. I have made some for a bandsaw from aluminum, but they were not 1/4 thick. I was luck that I had a hole saw of the correct diameter.
If you had a 3" hole saw it should be easy to make.

You may be able to get a machine shop to bore a 13/16 hole. Online you can find 3/4" three step pulley.

Re: Alternative to the Nova chuck?

Been cheap, I selected the Oneway tommy bar version. When I upgraded to a bigger lathe, all I needed was a new adapter to use the chuck. I now have 3 of the tommy bar version.
